    I was wondering if you would be able to help me. I have just moved house and I am now able to receive freeview through a set top box (tested using a friends pace box).

    I was wondering if someone could point in the direction of a good freeview box?

    Is there much of a notable difference between £30 and £100 boxes?

    I am looking at buying a DVD/HDD recorder in the near future so do not really need a box with built in HDD.

    Thanks for any help you can give

    About £70 (well someone had to say it!)

    Some Freeview boxes don't have an RF modulator. If you need this feature, look for it.

    Some boxes aren't reliable. If you want it to last, seek recommendations.

    Some Freeview boxes don't get software upgrades often (or ever).

    I use a Nokia 221T which performs well but occasionally "locks up" or does other strange things, requiring a reboot to fix it.

    Some Freeview boxes have more user-friendly menu systems. Go around your friends and ask for demonstrations.
