Easy set up, fairly small footprint, interacts well with other equipment. Twin scart a bonus.
Always struggled with Channel 5 and the History Channel but with the Ferguson FDT2000, Channel 5 was unwatchable (as was Price Drop TV, but not much of a loss there). I was willing to forgive it until recently it has been regularly failing to turn over on demand, instead it produces a message saying 'this action is currently unavailable, please try later'. My mother's setup suffers from the same problem, though not always at the same time as mine. Turning the box off and on clears the defect.
I'm no longer happy with the box. Channel 5, History Channel, and Price Drop issues aside, I can no longer trust it to work properly. Both mine and my parents' machines will be binned this week in favour of something else more reliable.
