Nope, don't know. I'd take an educated guess it's not a region thing, actually, apart from the fact that any change to our transmission chain is necessarily more complicated than anybody else's, precisely for that reason.

The Freesat boxes a couple of weeks ago were sold out virtually everywhere and this was with hardly any advertising! Imagine if they had stocked more and advertised a tad. My Dad got his from Comet and I connected his system up with it a couple of weeks ago - connection was with component (he has an old Wega LCD withough HDMI), via a component switch box. Picture was a vast improvement from his old Sky box. At the end of the day, it can't touch Sky (+ or HD) but it's free and you can't grumble now that ITV is HD as well as BBC HD and the apparently soon to arrive C4 and 5 HD.

You said your dad got his from Comet and it was a vast improvement from his sky box which freesat box was it and did that include the standard def channels?
I just know that no Freesat PVR boxes in time for Euro 2008 makes Professor a grumpy chappy...
I dont think (correct me if I'm wrong)
