After a pleasnt couple of hours (not !!) rummaging around in the shed I have found a starter BTTV box ...T2200
I also found a ....T2100/500g/BT/DF that I thought had gone
My question is.....is it viable to use the Humax box or is it getting a bit long in the tooth as it were ?
Or does the T2200 box have advantages that are worthwhile enough to use
I only watch the sport (football) & occasionally other programmes via a "box" as I dislike a pile of boxes under/around the tv
Most of my viewing is done on a Samsung "smart" tv using the "free to air" channels & the "iPlayer" type of options for time shift recording. It is connected to my home network.

Both the DTR2100 and the DT 2200 Currently continue to receive the latest software updatesand should be suitable for you to use. As the DTR2100 has a hard drive it has the advantage of being able to record and would enable you to pause live tv for a longer period. if you have not used the boxes for a while you will probably need to update the box software which normally occurs when you connect it to the internet and switch on. A retune may also be needed as several Freeview channel changes have occurred this year.
I'll go with the Humax box then
Time to buy some 1m ethernet cables as well as a couple of "powerlines" as I remember one of the ones I was using was getting a bit uncomfortably hot to the touch & will need replacing on a "just in case" basis
