Recommendation for a Christmas present: Freeview HD settop box
I wonder if you could help me with a recommendation for a Freeview HD settop box. We will be travelling to the UK for Christmas and I think a Freeview HD settop box for my partner's parents would be a nice gift. They currently have quite a nice Sony TV in the lounge but it's a couple of years old so the tuner doesn't decode HD.
A box with a recorder may be a bit to expensive, so it will have to be a simple settop box. It would be nice if the box could also receive BBC iPlayer through WiFi, but that might be a step too far. There is no ethernet in the lounge, the BT modem is another room.
Since we don't live in the UK, I don't know which brands to avoid and what's on the market.
