If you can afford that TV why do you not opt for the VM SA V+ box??? - different world - IMHO brilliant!

:)Hi donnie, saw your note on my thread, i'd ignore the last guy's post. he's not being constructive!!! if you can live with it get on to virgin and ask them to supply you a PACE box, they work almost perfectly. Only thing i noticed was occasionally the tv control, when u press a button, brings up the stb menu. As i say it only happens very rarely:)

Fine ignore my post but I am being constructive! If you look elsewhere on this forum you will see the huge benefits from using a V+ box over a standard V box particularly with a large screen TV If you enjoy rubbish pictures then great but if you want to see standard definition channels at their very best and better than any other source then get a V+ box - the difference is amazing!

PS a Pace box will be even worse!
