Digilogic DSTB1000 the freeview box you get from Tescos has got to be the worst freeview product I've ever come across. Guys - sort this piece of poop out. For 20 pounds, I'm not expecting bells and whistles but this product has major problems with receiving channels, the remote has a 5-10second lag time which makes it incredibly frustrating to use and most of the time channel information about what programes are on etc is not accessible. Tescos should be ashamed to associate themselves... (read more)

I had one of these Digilogic DSTB1000 boxes too. It was so bad. Basically it had poor, grainy picture quality and used a lot of electricity and I hated the graphics on the menus and epg, couldn't they have put a nicer looking one on it?
After about a year it started switching off and coming on after about 10 minutes again, and eventually it got to the point that it would very rarely switch on. I openned it up and found glue had been used on the circuit and it had melted on it and burnt, I'd... (read more)

I'm convinced the Digilogic DSTB1000 freeview box is the worst receiver ever! Doesn't receive channel 5 and other channels, when I plugged in another receiver (from Daewoo) it did receive all the channels so I can say a 100 procent that digilogic dstb1000 is awful!
Plus it uses 12 watt's! Their are better receiver out their of 1 and 2 watt's. (read more)

I wouldn't buy another one from Digilogic. My Digilogic box works but insists on receiving upgrades more often than other boxes, so at least weekly the box does nor respond until I switch it off, and retune all the digital channels. By the time you have done that the news etc will be finished and if your VCR was set to record it it won't have worked. The programme guide will have defaulted yet again to the crappy teletext version that wasn't the one you bought. the same happens to my... (read more)

Digilogic DSTB1000 the Tesco-supplied product has to be the worst digibox I've ever seen, the old ON digital boxes are rolls-royce by comparison. I paid a little more for this (around 40 quid) hoping I'd get a better box than the Tesco basic 20 quid model on the shelf at the time. I was wrong! It needs a major firmware overhaul. The cabinet is used by certain Bush, Alba and other makes though I tried the Pacific (Asda) version of my mate's and it works 200% better than this unit! The remote... (read more)

Bought the DSTB1000 to use with Tivo, and apart from the daily update, it is an ideal box for this purpose, after the update completes its 2 minute search, the screen returns to normal and Tivo records throughout the proceedings, it's a minor niggle, but infinitely preferable to Ferguson's alternative of complete shut down and stay off.
As said elsewhere, the Digilogic is nothing more than a reboxed Bush DFTA-11 , but I chose the larger boxed Digilogic over the Bush solely for its larger... (read more)

Firmware for the Digilogic DSTB1000 is different depending on the box you purchase - both myself and a friend purchased ours together on the same day at the same time in the same store but my firmware is different to his - mine is 3.1 and his is 4.2 - it seems that from information gathered there will never be help available for this box.

The Digilogic DSTB1000 freeview box features and menu are identical to the Bush DFTA11, it even has the same remote! However, it is somewhat bigger (307 x 210 x 46mm). It has 2 SCARTS (1 RGB) analogue audio on phono and an RF loop through. May be a clone of Goodmans GDB3/Lodos DVB-T3.
Set up is fairly quick. It provides for 16/9 and 4/3 displays, and in letter box mode it has several zoom modes. The menu system is quite simple, perhaps too much so, as there is no option to change many... (read more)
