Does anyone even use it? - I ring a LOT of customers, and often have to leave messages - if it's 1571 you just know that they will never get back in touch :(

Why?, OLED is the 'technology that never was', it promised so much yet delivered so little - plus cost so much to actually scale up, that it will probably never make a profit.

Presumably the severe...

'Upscaling' simply means it's made to fit the screens resolution, it doesn't make it 4K, or anything like it - it 'may' make a little improvement, depending on the quality of the scaler in the TV....

The 2TB box is just the 500GB/1TB box with a larger HDD - essentially all the recent PVR's are the same except for HDD size.

But they are probably the best Sky boxes yet, reliable and fast.

I certainly agree - it makes FAR more sense fitting a faceplate, rather than just chopping the wires off.

Yes it will - although it's most likely to have the bass boosted, in order to try and help compensate for the poor speakers in the TV.

I've had both eyes done - you probably don't need any time off work, although a day or two might be helpful - but many are back next day, or even the same day.

Easy to fix, simply refit the F connector correctly, or if it's broken (rare, but you do see occasional ones) then fit a new F connector.
