  • uk freeview tv box

    hi all
    just got one of these http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/...USB_TVBOX.html

    what can i say it the size of an HDD mp3 player and works great
    i can't get all the channels whilst driving but i can get a good chunk of them with a perfect picture. the ones with the poor signal are ok when i stop moving so it would depend on where you are in the uk as to what channels you get the best signal with.
    it also picks up all the bbc radio channel perfectly (plus some other ones).
    all this is done through a single USB 1.1 (great as i dont have USB 2.0 on my board). also it doesnt use any audio leads like other tv/radio cards .
    i have played with other tv cards like WINTV and so on and thay cannot even be compared as this is DIGITAL no fuzzy pics and a dam sight more channels . i also would like to point out i am using the standard magnetic Antenna that comes in the box.
    Im not sure how or if it can be used in conjunction with a frontend as it has a seperate control panel for vol/chan/rec and so on.when the new CF comes out it will have an option for external apps so i will give it a go and let you know how i get on.
    most of the freeview functions are here like program guide and so on.not sure about the (RED BUTTON) as it didnt come with the remote .

    Skydiver- cool will have to keep an eye to see when its in stock

    Stupid description lol-

    Q. Will it work with an indoor Aerial?
    A. Probably not but under some circumstances yes. These units are NOT guaranteed to work with an indoor aerial however under testing they have worked with limited success. A rooftop aerial is always recommended.


    And since this is digital, it can deliver television while traveling in the car or train which analog unable.

    Exactly how are train passengers supposed to set up a rooftop aerial

    Keep us upadated with its going ons

            What's the digi coverage like round S'oton? Here in Bournemouth it can be pretty flaky. I live in one of the highest parts of the town and my domestic freeview setup was a pig to get right.

                  all are good when stoped .but for some reason sky ones are the best when driving .

                      Maybe its worth getting one to give it a go, the signal ain't wonderful here but hey ho, I'll give it a try.

                              i think all the new ones are usb 2.0 so you can even do pic in pic.
                              as i got mine from a friend its an old one on usb 1.1 .
                              the new ones are alot better still.
