BT Boxes

Go to solution

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.

 

Cheers

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.

Thanks Zulu

I'll go with the Humax box then Smiley Happy

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
