Score 3.0/10
Good points:
cheap way to get setanta
Bad points:
I have a dvd recorder with build in freeview which works perfectly for all freeview channels. Got this box for accesing setanta on freeview, intermitantly it wont pick up certain channels and freezes a lot. Both devices are through the same aerial and have both been installed and set up by a tv aerial specialist. Wouldn't recommend it.
