    Hi, Can anyone tell me if they know of a free-to-air digibox that has "fast text" for both terrestrial and digital broadcasts. I want this box to plug into my Pana PWD5 instead of their expensive analogue TV tuner.
    Many Thanks

    Pace Twin has no analog features (I'm guessing that's what James meant by 'terrestrial'), so cannot receive 'regular' (old style) teletext.

    I suspect such a beastie will be hard to find. You may have to forget about old style teletext, and use a good Freeview Box to receive all the relevant programmes, with the digital text service that accompanies some of them. (they aren't all as expensive as the Twin, but then, none of the others can record - yet),

    Plasma owners are unable to use Vhs (quality issues) so Pace Twin is probably best answer
