I've read a couple of the reviews on here and it's obvious that some are not happy and some are pleased. So I'll be ordered in my criticism.
My mother was given this stb when the digital change went through but the channels refused to be in any sort of order no matter how many times we followed the instructions. Sometimes you culd put a channel on turn away and turn back and it's gone off or in a few cases at first would even change the channel. It was not good and we tried in vain to get... (read more)

Due to problems with Echostar unit, I have moved onto the Thomson DTI2300. Whilst it is an improvement, it is not perfect by any means.
The menu's are slow and not intuative.
For some reason, despite the Echostar and a Sony set top box working fine, this unit does not want to pick up any ITV, or Channel 4, channels.
I have previously used the ariel output to provide the input to a TV & video in another room. However this unit stops this aditional video from displaying any picture... (read more)
