    Nokia 221T

    [​IMG]

    I had a play with one of these in John Lewis and I like the OSD, was quick changing channels and features digital sound output so you can use your own DAC. It also has a signal meter, and allows you to move the picture horizontally. What I don't like is the shape of the unit, and it's a bit of a beast compared with the other new boxes. JL are out of stock incidentally.

    P.S. There is a software patch due to be broadcast " After Christmas" this is to fix 4:3 pictures being displayed in error as 16:9.

    Conditions:- 221T set for 16:9. WS TV in auto mode.
    Occurrence:- Leaving a WS broadcast on a 16QAM Mux for a 4:3 broadcast on a
    64QAM Mux the picture is displayed as 16:9 with no automatic resizing.

    I would like to add that i have bought and returned an Earlier Nokia model, the newish Panasonic box and a Pace STB due to awful audio quality that in no way whatsoever compared to the sit up and beg nicam analogue signal we have been getting for donkeys years (through kit listed below) After some investigation i had simply come to the conclusion that it was down to a bit-rate/compression affair. I have now had the Nokia 221T for a week or so and am absolutely delighted with it, whilst i think perhaps the Grundig STB we have in the bedroom may offer a slightly more colour saturated RGB output the audio output from the Nokia (when comparing against analogue terrestial BBC1/2 CH3/4) is pretty much identical, hook up the co-axial spdif output to my av32r and there are RADICAL improvements (as to be expected).

    Very Pleased Indeed.
    There aren't that many things i feel i can spend £130 on and feel i have got a real improvement. heartliy recommended.

    Steve.
