    Hello all,

    I am moving soon and am going to be after a freeview box that has an optical digital output.

    I would also like to know of any boxes that are good in weak signal areas.

    Thanks for all your help,

    James

    I've got a Sony VTXD800 and both the sound quality and picture quality are fantastic, even better then when i had NTL Digital. By the way you need an toslink adapter to use the optical out on the sony, but these can be bought for about 2 quid from maplins!
