Some customer reviews of GRUNDIG GUD1600TS1G

Most helpful reviews

Isobel, Whitchurch

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Most important about a freeview box is the picture on the epg. I can scroll down some other channels whilst still watching the tv channel i am currently on. This is the only reason why i bought this box.
Bad points:
1 - You have to aim the remote at the box. The area it can pick up on is not like the tv and pointing towards that direction, you have to actually aim at the blue light.

2 - The one major problem with it, though i can live with it, is sometimes the person on the tv, the voice isn't in sinc with their actual mouth. I've found it happens every now and then, and to correct it, just flip to another channel and then back again. Saw it yesterday, whilst watching crufts, Claire Balding was talking though her mouth wasn't saying what her voice was. Makes the people on tv look quite comical though!

Mike, Longwick

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
none
Bad points:
Picture breaks up too often. Picture size keeps altering.
"Breaks" down too often although can be brought back to "life" by switching off and switching back on after a few minutes.
Had no trouble with previous set box top (Technica) till it blew up after approx five years!!

Remote rather too sensitive and skips onto a couple of channes further than you need on just one press but not really a problem you get to see what''s on other channesls while looking for the one you need
