    Anyone got any opinions on the little Panasonic box available. I think it's xxxx30 or something. Looks like just the ticket.

    Also, I don't suppose there is a box out there with a coaxial digital output?

    bought one of these a week ago.

    Nice box, very responsive and very easy to use.

    Two downsides though:

    1) There does not seem to be a way to permanently associate the box to a channel selection you set up in a profile - it keeps reverting to 'all channels' which means you have to wade through loads of rubbish channels or unavailable channels to get to where you want - either that or continually reselect the profile you want to use...

    2) Twice it has messed up the name of one of the channels - on saturday it renamed BBC4 as ftn and yesterday it relabelled uktv history as cbeebies. Not sure why it does this, but in order to undo it you have to reset all the channels, wait 5 minutes for it to redetect them then set up any profiles again.

    Dont think it is a faulty unit - just seems like buggy firmware. Maybe an update will be forthcoming.

    Anyone else had these issues?
