It doesn't work
I have several DTT boxes around the house from various manufacturers - one dating back to the inception of the service. All work fine.
I bought this Goodmans GDB3 for my son to take to uni and had the same problems as listed elsewhere here, switching off, freezing etc. As this device has been on sale for so long both Goodmans/Alba and the retailers must be well aware of the problems but continued to push them out.
Customer service appears to me to be non-existent and the comment elsewhere here about it being the BBC's fault shows how much they know if you do get a response - the BBC has not owned/operated its own transmitters or Muxs for some years now. Maybe they mean it is choosy about the type of programmes it will receive!
Will never buy Goodmans/Alba again - whatever the price.
