    Freesat & Sky free to view boxes

    Can you give any recommendations to what are the best boxes to receive either Freesat and/or Skyfreetoview box. I have an old Grundig GDS300 box with a freetoview card but not sure if it will be any good over here. I have not quite made up my mind whether to go Freesat or Skyfreetoview so want to consider both box options. I am not really looking to HD or Sky+ just basic boxes

    many thanks

    if grundig GDS300 (i thinkit is black) is good until they start to "misbehave"....i would suggest keep it until it goes "funny" then consider a replacement.

    i have found the best standard definition Freesat receiver to be the Grundog Freesat receiver.
    i have found the best HD Freesat receiver to be the Humax Foxsat Freesat receiver..

    the best Sky standard definition receiver is the Pace 2600 - although this will only be available from ebay as they stopped making these over 4 years ago.
    i have found that the best Sky standard definition receiver currently produced is the thomson DS 4214

    Thanks for the advice. My box is actually silver and was working perfectly okay back in the UK so will take your advice and continue to use it until it gives out.

    a silver grundig is good. but like i said many have been going "funny" which is an indication that they are on the way out
