    Been looking at the Pioneer DBRTF100GB or the Phillips 1500.

    I need two scarts one for my TV (G+RGB) the other for my Projector (S-Video).

    This is to replace my old Pace OnDigital box which although has been slow but good does not have S-Video own and my Siter will probable buy it.

    So any advide or help? Strict max Budget £80

    I voted Philips mainly because i have one, I think its excellent the picture and sound is very good (though i am fortunate in having a very good signal).

    Never tried a Pioneer box so can`t comment on it.

    The Philips is a good box by all accounts its just a shame they won't update for the 7 day EPG. I have the Pioneer and I've had no problems at all. It is supposed to be updated for the 7 day EPG when its available.
