Is the Technomate 4200 Combo any good?? Am I right in thinking it does 2 jobs in 1 i.e it has freeview reception as well as Satellite?? If so this would save a clutter of boxes under my TV. And can it be patched.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Sorry I do not know about the patching.



The 4200 combo is the 4100 with the addition of a DTT receiver.

The sat side is excellent as one would expect from Technomate. Like most DTT boxes, it depends upon your aerial and location.

Patches are published on another board by a chap named Darkman (Google for that)
