    I picked up one of these for my bedroom at the weekend for £48 from Currys.

    Pretty damn good I think!

    I only had channels 1-4 before, now I have like 30 odd and digital quality copies of Radio 1, 1Xtra, and Kiss (for recording!).

    Nice one whoever thought of this :mkay:

    its cheaper than a dab receiver, yet has all/most of the stations.

    So is just a plug & play system or do you need a certain style of TV to use it on?

    Yeah it's plug & play!

    I got an old Sanyo TV with a single SCART and RF input. So you can use either input from the Freeview box.

    I got one, u have to watch what area you are in though! A lot of the south coast cant receive it, if you can you may need to upgrade to a wide band aerial - which aint cheap. If you can get it theyre all good! :cool:

    What channels dya get cause I need a tv for my room and I wouldn't live with 5 channels, or would it be easier just to get another digital package thing?

    We got the cheapo 20 quid a month one anyone with about 50 odd channels, (The majority of them QVC and teleshop channels).

    So would it be pretty much the same channels?1

    Theres 2 or 3 shop channels. A limited selection of normal channels, and the full range of BBC stations. No MTV or nothin tho..

    The radio is the best bit tho, its like 70 quid for the cheapest DAB receiver..

    I bought an Arcam receiver last year, so I'm sorted regardless, including the new standard set to come in soon that most normal DABs can't pickup :/
