    At the moment I've got an old Grundig Freeview box (I think you can get the same box as Ferguson and maybe Goodmans). However, I feel the picture quality is not the best. Its seems to be quite blocky when the pictures are quick moving.

    My first question is: Will most of the newer freeview boxes have a better picture? I'm thinking about the Sony, The Humax (HD recorder - 8000?) or maybe an iplayer.

    Second question: I have a Philips 32PW9509C and was wondering if there are any freeview boxes which will work from the TV remote control. (It has buttons to switch to different devices). I also have a Pioneer DCS 424 home cinema system with a similar remote. Could I even use this for any freeview boxes? Its a bit of a pain having 3 remote controls!

    Third Question: Is it worth me waiting for the new Humax dual tuner/HD model? How much is this gonna cost (approx)?

    Hi
    Sounds like you dont know what you want yet, if you dont like all the remotes get a digibox with a intigrated hard drive or DVDR.
    I am not aware of any tv remote which will operate another brand, but some will work with there own equipment ie. Sony, Philips
    I would imigine your poor picture is more likely to be your tv. Sometimes if you turn off some of the TVs features(processing) it helps on the fast moving scenes.

    Yeah, I don't really know what I want. I definitely want a better picture though. Depending how much the Humax is, I might be tempted

    ...or...

    maybe I should just get the Humax 8000 and stick a bigger Hard disk in it. I've got a spare 160Gb one here

    Decisions, decisions!!!!
