    Smile Freeview Receiver

    I am looking at buying a TEAC HDB6T High Definition Terrestrial Set Top Box from Dick Smith price $199.

    1) Can anyone provide a review of this product in terms of ease of use, setup, bonus features?

    2) Any issues / problems with it?

    3) Is High definition the same as Full HD?

    Teac isn' t the best brand from my previous experience.

    Update
    I have got the TEAC HDB6T setup and the UHF aerial in the roof (clay tiles). Everything works well together.

    no issues so far

    Will probably have to get a new TV eventually as when I am recording from a channel I can not watch other channels.

    When I use my freeview unit,I find that h/d recorder isn't the same as when not used.

    As I understand it,the unit is digiatal and the recorder is not,so not compatible.
    So as I have 2 h/d recorders,I am not using freeview unit.

    Install the firmware update and you can use the Teac HDB6T to record to a Fat32 formatted USB stick or drive

    Has anyone managed to playback the recordings on their computer?

    That isn't your TV's problem. Are you talking about a VHS recorder? That shouldn't be a problem if things are set up correctly.

    Unless you're already recording with the Teac

    I have installed the firmware
    Obtained a new 250G external drive, and then watched it sloooowly get formatted to FAT32. Decided there must be a faster way, did some searching, have some software to try, but not the time to do it yet.

    (washing machine broke...)

    Anyway I can see certain channels TV1,2,3 on the TV (not as clear) while recording on the HDR another channel but I think I need an additional set of cables from a splitter going from the STB to the TV to see the complete range.

    Am investigating further once new washing machine obtained
