    Yes, it is that sort of thing. Plus loads of ads for cruises and stairlifts. It's dull as ditchwater I'm afraid.

    I've got one of those and I slot it in occasionally but it has never been on the first team permanently. Lovely mech and build, though.

    Hello Macca

    100+del. It is 11.4kg and 434x171x383mm. I believe Royal Mail does not go over 10kg but ParcelForce next day is about 25 for guaranteed one-day.

    Two things you may want to know; On-screen-display is not over HDMI I think, but uses the lesser video connectors. Also, it does not decode all the lastest sound formats on blu-ray so if this is important you should make sure you have a blu-ray player that can do the decoding. All the modern players do I believe.

    Regards
    Sean
