I have been given three of these - brand new - to dispose of. From the numbers underneath they look as though they were made in 2004

The reputation was terrible, locking up after a short while and no upgrades offered by the manufacturer, though a source close to me at the time mentioned the issues were down to a non standard stream within one of the terrestrial channels that has since been taken off the air.

Having run one up for a couple of days, its doing its thing without any problem, but of course it is only DVB-T and no upscaling, SD output and SCART or RF connection only to the TV.

The menus are however interesting, showing more than the usual amount of information received on the frequencies scanned, so these might be more than just curiosity value, but as they stand they are no use to me. If anyone wants them then free to collect, or cover the cost of post and packing - I assume these are UK use only even though the menus show multi language.

I'll get some imagery of the screen tomorrow, but here are some of the case/remote .

It's not a bad film, if you can accept it is very dated. Lots of familiar faces, including Leslie Phillips.
