  • RS-232 (RS-232 connector)

    RS-232 connector is usually used to upgrade device's firmware and can't be normally used to transfer videos from the device to a PC.

  • MHP (MHP support)

    MHP is a unified standard for interactive digital TV services. The standard is mostly used in the Nordic countries.

  • Teletext (Integrated Teletext)

    Integrated Teletext allows using Teletext services with the device, whether the connected TV supports Teletext or not.

  • Conax (Integrated Conax card reader)

    Conax is a form of encryption method used by several European pay-TV operators. Without Conax reader, those channels can't be accessed, as the authentication car provided by pay-TV operator can be read only by Conax reader.

  • Tuners (Number of tuners)

    If the device includes multiple tuners, it typically allows picture-in-picture functions (and, in case of PVR-capable devices, recording) for two or more channels, even if the channels are physically located in different multiplexes.

  • HDMI (HDMI output)

    If the device includes HDMI output, it can be connected digitally to a HDMI-capable display (for example, most flat-screen TVs).

  • Cable Ready HD (Cable Ready HD certified)

    Cable Ready HD certification is used in Finland to notify that the device is officially approved by Finnish cable TV operators to be used in receiving HDTV broadcast signal over cable TV.

  Rating: 1 / 5 Value for money: 4 / 5

For Cable in the UK or Ireland this box doesn't have any support anymore so it really isn't worth looking at.

It is apparantly really popular in Finland.

If you can find some support for it then it's a great box, but i;ve had this for 3 years and havent been able to use it for 12 months.
