Top Gadget news!


Over the last few weeks two pals (ex BS5ers) have been bemoaning the state of their TV channel boxes which have ranged from juddering to shite! Not content to be left out, my own TV channel box has been playing up this year and finally froze and sat their petulantly doing feck all a few days ago. Virgin Media sent out a cheery enginneer who just left. He looked at the bit of kit and told me it was ten years old - five years in my house and it was already 5 years old and reconditioned when I got it. Without fuss he whipped out the old and put in a spankin' new silver one. It's loads faster, the picture is clearer and it changes channels more quickly. Ideal. And it seems to have some cool lights.

Just need a good evening on the sofa to test it which by lucky chance I can do tonight!

Here it is...

bane indeed - it was one step away from being chopped into little pieces and sent back to BT. Although we have now realised that there are people out there who are willing to pay good money for such boxes.... hhmmmm!

Good luck!
