Well I have had it for 3 years and not over the moon about them.
Dissapionted with the HD selection they give, only BBC1, ITV1 and CH4.
Think they should add Five (another thread on this site does say I think this year), Film 4 and maybe other BBC and ITV could be added. Anyone seriously wanting HD via Satellite should consider SKY free or subscription versions before deciding.
Looking at new TV sets seems easier to buy a built in Freeview HD than Freesat built in.

What did the advert mean by ON Demand TV?
I can only get BBC iPlayer is that it?
On Demand TV I see mentioned these days is a CH4 brand.

Hi David, Not sure what equipment you're using but there are now 5 HD channels BBC1 HD,BBC HD, ITV1 HD, Channel4 HD and as well as BBC IPlayer there is now ITV Player on 903, not a bad start for free, me thinks!

Sorry missed the 109 BBC HD out, do not realy count that as a proper program, have heard that if BBC2 goes HD this HD one will go off.
( There is a Japanese News program as which I forgot).
It is Panasonic Freesat Tv and only after 3 years will it now do BBC iPlayer as I understand it Panasonic will not upgrade further.
I have enquired of Panasonic which of their present TV sets will do all the new specs coming out in the near future and the ITV player plus the CH4 and Five ONDemand, they have as yet not responded. Done this just in case I go for larger screen size this Christmas. I not want to get caught out again as I did in 2008.

Paul: Connect the Humax box to the router using a cat5 patch cable. The router should be connected to your internet in the appropriate way.

Although I read this site, most of it I don't understand. However, I would like to share something which might shed light on some problems. I live in Chelmsford, Essex. I use a single aerial (external) which has a powered splitter attached. One cable runs down to my Panasonic TV, the other to a Philips TV. The Panasonic has tuned itself to London, the Philips to Anglia. (This is because of the local news shown ) How many reported problems are a result of the TV tuner I ask myself

David Jackson: Crystal Palace uses lower frequencies than Sudbury (which I assume your aerial is directed at). Run the automatic tuning scan with the aerial unplugged up until 25%.

To stop that problem I had to take my powered splitter out and use a normal 'Y' splitter.
