my neice had decided to stay with us for a while so we wanted a cheap digital box for the room she was in to make her feel more comfortable (in the days before woolies sadly closed down) I stumbled across this one on a price comparisson website and ordered it for store collection via the woolies website. I picked it up from store a few days later and set it up in the spare room. I was not expecting much as it was very cheap to buy but I was expecting to be fit for the purpose i was buying it.

My free view box (one of the original ondigital boxes which cost £200 +) died a death and so needed to be replaced.

NOT a review of the Woolies Worthit! but a comparison with an almost identical piece of kit.I have just installed a Mico STB238 purchased from Maplin (£19.99 including VAT and a full SCART lead). It is connected to a Sony TV and a Panasonic HS960 S-VHS VCR.It works perfectly in all respects, including the RF loop-through which seems to bug the Woolies Worthit!.

By now you must be wondering just how many of these Digital TV set top boxes I'm going to review and the answer is, as many as it takes to find one that works properly, at a reasonable price. Let's face it, the technology isn't complicated. I suspect that there are a limited number of chip sets used by all manufacturers to put their own boxes together; I doubt many make their own chips. So, the components are mass-produced at a mass-produced price and as these things are undoubtedly turned out in their thousands, if not millions, there is no reason that they should cost the Earth. In general, the only real differences are the input and output connections to the boxes Read the complete review
