About this deal

I may just look at getting a freesat box that will allow me to access the recordings via DLNA, as this should be sufficient. Well, wonder no more – we’re here to walk you through everything you’ll need to enjoy satellite TV with no monthly TV bills or contracts. The downside is that you need to provide the hardware for it to run on and the storage for it to record to (i.

Yes Barry, I too assumed any of the characters available on screen would have worked - that includes spaces as well. I wanted to check the wifi so unplugged the ethernet but it wouldn't connect although it could see both my SSIDs. I’ve mentioned Freeview already, but there’s also YouView, and they’re both different from Freesat… Confused? During testing, we evaluate how easy the box is to use – both in terms of the user interface and the supplied remote control. Play media content including photos, videos and MP3s directly onto your TV using a memory device connected to the USB port, or connect it to PCs or laptops around the home through your home router, using the Ethernet port.Some Samsung, LG and Panasonic TVs support Freesat directly, and all you need to do is plug in the coaxial cable coming through the wall; check the manual and look for the distinctive satellite input socket (it sticks out and has a screw thread running around it) to see if this might be the case with yours. Even if it’s a Sky satellite dish or an older model, all you need to do is plug the satellite cables into the back of your Freesat 4K TV Box and you’re good to go. Sky Q made it easy to record everything on one box and stream in other rooms with mini boxes, requiring only 1 box (the main sky q box) to be connected to the dish. Again, remember that there are no 4K broadcasts on Freesat, so for the moment, 4K only works with Netflix, Prime Video and YouTube.

I will have a play about with it later as my parents, despite being pretty au fait with phones, iPads, laptops etc and happy to watch YouTube vides on these, like a lot of elderly people they just cannot get their heads around watching whatever they like on an actual telly and need the crutch of live channels/EPG. This recording model can record up to 4 programmes/channels at the same time (but you need a Wideband LNB dish), and has a wide range of smart recording features. As the name suggests, these units are also 4K-ready, and while there aren’t any 4K Freesat channels at the time of writing, you can watch 4K Netflix and YouTube content from your box. Finally, if you want to use your Freesat box to connect to On Demand players you’ll also need an internet connection 6.

Using one of Freesat's Recordable 4K TV Boxes, it's easy to record all your favourite shows and films to watch later. Hearst UK is the trading name of the National Magazine Company Ltd, 30 Panton Street, Leicester Square, London, SW1Y 4AJ.

Not bothered about that – we have a TV in the bedroom that hasn’t been switched on in about 5 years and I only ever switch the TV on in the kitchen when there is football/rugby/F1/athletics/netball on (and I just use a Firestick for those occasions). In the TV Guide you will easily be able to select what programmes, movies and Radio shows to record, by selecting the programme and pressing the record button on the remote. On Demand requirements: Some optional On Demand content or services (such as Netflix and Prime Video) may cost extra and require paid subscription. We run through the setup process and automatic tuning, then watch a range of programmes over a period of at least three days.

From setting recordings on your Humax box when you’re out and about to turning your smartphone into a remote control. On the remote you have lost the “scheduled” button to see what you have set in your recordings if you have forgotten what you have set, so you have to scroll through all the epg. They are so easy to setup, and with the new "piggy" versions from Solwise, you don't even lose a socket, as they use mains pass-through on them, so you can plug the PVR into the piggy device that's plugged into the wall socket! Hi - Sorry to say, but that device has no USB compatibility at all - it is a mains powered device, with an external power adapter. Within minutes you will be viewing content from devices connected to your Home Network through wireless connection with built-in Wi-Fi (WLAN).
