    All those issues are amongst those which cause the 'media box flak' here. Not an AV forums recommended bit of kit. I can't see the need for it in your system.

    Hi there guys

    Although this is a uk based forum, a fair number of people who use this forum do not live in the uk,(I for one live in spain ) and for them an anologue reciever to view TV broadcasts is a necesity, as not every country broadcast the main TV channels through the satelite network like SKY does.

    You should count yourselves lucky to a certain extent as the current broadcast set up allows you to view all main terrestrial TV broadcast through satelite reception, and given that option I understand why the preference for display panel with no inbuilt tuners or media boxes which can be cheaper or for the same price give you better picture quality. So basically for some of us a media box is a necesary evil.

    I personally ended purchasing a pioneer 435 XDE, which although not the best plasma screen ( its black level is worse than the panasonic and lacks contrast in comparison ) it does most things to acceptable level, at least for me and is fairly simple to set up and get the thing working without the need to purchase input cards or RGB converters.

    Regards to everyone who posts on this forum, I have learnt a great deal from the likes of Hornydragon, MAW, Gordon, ETC.

    Keep up the good work.
