Any suggestions for the best Freeview box available or are there any I should steer clear of.
Best is the Pioneer ...1000 (IMO)
Don't know which ones to avoid.
It's all a matter of opinion so expect to see nearly all brands listed in the replies!
Thanks. I think I'm going to need one that does well with weak signals. I did test my signal strength by hooking up a friend's STRONG SRT5000T and the signal strength shown for almost all channels was about 55-60%. The picture quality was pretty good even at that level but I'm sure there are better models out there that can improve on the quality.
I know the Panasonic TUCT20 is good but only if there's a strong signal so that model is out of the running.
I'm considering the Nokia 221T, Sony VTXD800, Pioneer DBRTF100 or the Humax F2-Fox T. Anyone got any comments on these models, especially in relation to coping with weak signal strength?
Just got a freeview box myself and having read about a bit I found the Nokia 221t to have had some good feedback.
Now it's installed I can say it's a cracking picture / easy to operate.
Got mine from Currys online for circa 3104.00 inc del.
Humax PVR8000T no question!
Excellent picture, very good sensitivity, 40GB HDD for about 20h broadcast quality recording and can even freeze live tv while you make a cuppa. About £149 from online sources such as QED and DABS.
