    Hey everyone,

    Im pretty much a newbie to freeview STB's but want to buy a budget one. Not too sure what features I should be looking for but I want to spend under £50, have EPG 7 day, decent picture quality and 2 scart sockets (my TV only has one so I guess I need 2 if I want to connect my DVD too?). I dont/wont need TUTV either
    Any suggestions on other important features too look for?

    Anyone have any experience of the following?:

    Echostar T101+ at woolworths £39.99
    Pacific DSTB 1 at ASDA
    Goodmans GDB3
    Goodmans GDB6
    Wharfdale

    I think they all fulfill my criteria. Any suggestions on which to go for?

    Thanks guys

    Gig

    I went to argos and got a philips the other day for £50. It has great picture quality and has 7 day epg and 2 scarts. I didnt get the model in the catalogue but i think it was a newer one as it said world up 2006 sponsor on the box.

    It doesnt seem to be on the net!
