Ever since my present SWMBO arrived I've been running my VU+ Solo on 28.2E as a standalone Freesat system. This week the VU+ remote sensor stopped working and I've eliminated the remote itself as a possible cause. So I'm left with the task (opportunity?) to change the STB for another. An alternate is to change SWMBO but Amazon seem to be out of stock. Anyway, I'm thinking of either a cheap Octagon type box or a dedicated Freesat box, neither of which need recording facilities. A significant factor is that it needs to be easy to operate, especially as we have three different sets of housesitters coming this year and the technical instructions I leave should ideally cover less than two sides of A4. ATM we're using my DR HD box which is proving a tad tempremental...
