    Hello people,

    I need a new Freeview STB for my new Hannspree screen I purchased last week. Which are the popular, cheap and cheerful ones you people recommend? I only need the very basic version which is at least software upgradable (is it necessary?) with no needs for programme recording and/or Topup TV slot. Thanks in advance. :D

    Regards,

    Terry

    A basic £19.99 would do.
    Search online or go to Teso/Asda etc.
    I am sure that i saw one for eith £19.99 or £24.99

    Just bought a Durabrand digital set top box for £19.99 from Asda and it works well. Would recommend going for one with a hard drive inside it so you can record programmes as well.

    Thanks. My uncle gave me an unused Nokia OnDigital Freeview box from 2 years ago when his TV set didn't have Freeview built-in. It works beautifully at no cost! :smashin: Great
