Well, you know what forums are like. If you are lucky, you can find yourself in a sensible discussion with a fair, and polite, exchange of views. Alternatively (and all too often) there is a slanging...

He needs that ban, coupled with therapy, to sort his issues out. I find it very sad that a player of such immense ability should sully his reputation with behaviour that is actually very childish...

I was on the point of buying the new Humax BT box, but I think I will wait and find out what happens with the software update first. If it really does remove most of the performance difference...

Humax have a reputation for being the best Freeview / Youview boxes around. Anything with a hard drive in it may go a bit flaky sooner or later, but ten months is an unacceptably brief time. I don't...

That just demonstrates how much I watched it, doesn't it. I think what the whole argument boils down to is that if you have a huge TV and sit close to it, you really need to be watching on satellite...

I think you have hit the nail on the head there. I suspect that many of those who complain about picture quality may well have vast screens and sit close to them. My set is 39" and I sit about seven...

It boils down to whatever floats your boat. If you are a sports fanatic, you are not that badly catered for on Freeview, but obviously Sky and BT Sports may be preferable. Are they worth the money,...

Hmm, that doesn't sound good. I have defended TalkTalk in these forums, justifiably in my view because I think a fair proportion of the criticism they have received was not really deserved, but a few...

Sorry, my mistake. Mine has been plugged in for so long that I thought it was a captive lead, but it turns out that it isn't. The power supply is a Huawei Model HW-120200B8W, if that is any use to...

Isn't that the standard YouView box supplied by TalkTalk? It doesn't have a separate power supply because it is internal. It plugs straight into the mains.

Mine freezes, and always has. Most of the time it is fine, but if I watch a one hour programme, I can more or less guarantee that it will freeze once towards the end. I will need to switch channels...

Some of Barbeier's comments seem to apply to his own box, rather than Huawei boxes in general. He has made these comments before, leading me to suspect that his box may be slightly faulty.

Oh well, fingers crossed. The last trial - the one that put the boost channels in the main peg - lasted several months. Let's hope this one is quicker.

It all depends on your tastes. One man's meat is another man's poison. Sky One does little for me, but I can often find something interesting on Living or Sky Arts.
