    I live in the Twickenham area, and can't even work out what transmitter I am using!
    Is there a web site I can plug my post-code into to work this out?
    Thanx

    It depends if you box supports the 7 day EPG, the system is up and running and working for those that do.

    What box have you got ?

    I have a panasonic TCU 30 which is suppose to support 7day epg, but all I get is now and next.
    Do I need an over the air update for this?

    Yes, the TUCT30 is supposed to but it doesn't and nobody can find out from Panasonic why or when it will. Shame on them I say. I had a TUCT30 and decided to send it back and get a Sony 800 since the TUCT30 was not as described and not fit for purpose.

    The Sony is a much, much better box all round. The interface is excellent and it works brilliantly. Plus I get full 7 day epg.

    Second vote for the Sony here. Menus/text are lightening fast. Only downside is it is a little more expensive than the Panasonic.

    I've got the Pioneer but used the Sony and agree its the best box by miles. Its got everything, it all works, Sony have been pro-active with updates.

    Wish they would make a twin tuner PVR based on the 800. That would be the dogs.
