Written on: 28/11/2009

I had cause to contact Daewoo in AUGUST 2008, because my set-top box stopped working due to the digital changes being implemented at that time. Despite sending TWO e-mails, neither were responded to, and it is now November 2009.
With Customer Care services like that, I would advise anybody thinking about buying a Daewoo product NOT TO!!!… Read Full Review

DAEWOO YOU ARE A BIG BIG BIG LET DOWN . Yes I know you have no control over Digital changes however, it is within your control to look after valued customers who in the past have bought your products and even recomended them. Why were we not told. I have revisited my ds608p piece of scrap for the last week dismanteling unites to fix it. How stupid I felt today after I phoned your customer service dept. My wife has stoped speaking to me, she believes I have lost all her ...HER programes. I… Read Full Review

I found this unit easy to use until a transmitter upgrade at Sutton Coldfield. After this the unit can't find any channels. From what I read, it is now obsolete. Some owners have been able to get free replacements from Daewoo… Read Full Review

I'm in London and this set stopped working this week. Signal strength is fine through my aerial but the Daewoo cannot read the signals. Only found about it by searching through the internet. Do not buy as this is redundant now… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2008

Whilst I have had 4 good years out of this set top box it is now rendered useless following the recent channel update. Would it have still worked if I had not been foolish enough to update the channel information?
The annoying thing is this box cost me £70 over 4 years ago and yes I know a replacement is only £20 but some of the new ones are not without problems !
I will never buy a daewoo product again!!… Read Full Review

“As far as the 2K carrier thing and 6 muxes goes, in GB...”

Written on: 12/07/2007 by machead (1 review written)

As far as the 2K carrier thing and 6 muxes goes, in GB this probably wont matter, as all your transmitters only carry up to 6 muxes and all (so far anyway) your digital channels have a 2K subcarrier bandwidth. But over here in Ireland the Irish DTT service which started later than yours, uses an 8K carrier. So far we've only got 4 muxes, but combined with the 6 UK ones the receiver needs to be able to deal with 10 or more! I had a prototype of the 608P for trials before the production model was… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/07/2007

I have had no problems at all with this box until now! I appear to have lost the sound on all my channels yet the pictures are perfect! I have tried re-tuning it as per the book but nothing different happens. Any ideas anyone? PS I'm not very technical minded so keep it simple please?

Written on: 01/01/2004 by Brendan Sothcott (2 reviews written)

I used the Daewoo DS608P in an area with a known poor reception, but works well (the BBC Post Code checker says that I should not recieve any DVB at all). Have been using now for a year with no problems, apart from two days when the signal strength went to zero due to weather conditions.

Dead easy to use. well worth the money… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/12/2003 by pmht (1 review written)

When the Daewoo DS608P box arrived on the shop floor I rushed over to check what it was. looking at the demo model, it looked very fashionable and would go with my silver VCR and TV. It was only £52, and If I didnt like it, I could take it back. Great!

Setup was easy. Plug this into that, and then press a button for 6 seconds. within minutes, the system had fully setup, had welcomed me, and was showing BBC1 in a clear digital reception.

Im a university student, and I decided to take it back… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2003 by Silver. (1 review written)

Bought this Daewoo DS608P set top box after it was recommended by the sales person who seemed to have a gripe about the other model I was considering (which was a Grundig).
Set up was a breeze, although the first attempt missed some channels (ITV1 etc), but picked them up on the second attempt. Was a bit unimpressed with the layout of the remote and there doesn't appear to be any way of accessing a manual tuning menu (not that you should really need it)
Didn't like the layout of the on-screen… Read Full Review

Mutly's Response to 69239_Silver.'s Review

Written on: 18/10/2003

I found this equipment very easy to use, with both a good picture and sound. Much better than the Phillips that I also tried, which altered the colour. Like any new hand set it takes a little time to get used to but is well layed out and it does what is needed and no more. A plus is that the on screen menue is very easy to read and transparent, so you don't miss anything on the film while looking to see whats coming next.
<br>If going through a video first, remember to set
<br>this to A1 or A2 to tape the digital picture. Some people make the mistake of trying to tune their video into the digital signal as if it was an extra terestreal signal. Doing it this way may reduce picture quality. A1 & A2 are normally found A1,A2,0,1,2,3,4 etc.. by using the scroll button rather than individual butons found on your video hand set. At less than £80 from tesco, if your not happy with the results, take it back. Thats their guarantee, so give it a go.
<br>P.S. It would be better if it had dual scart and dual digital signal so you could tape and view different digital channels at the same time. But then none of the makes have this yet and may not for some while. With free films, history programs and half the rugby would cup on free view, can you wait that long?
