    To be fair to Motty he's also famous for inventing the sheepskin coat so I don't think you can just lump him in with all the other commentators.

    It could be a contributor but I've had fibre optic since 1996 so in my case the improvement can only be down to the new box.

    Hi Macca

    I am trying to contact you on a serious matter in regard to your forum, I have written a long email but I am having difficulty sending it to you, how can I send it? Sorry I am not a regular user of this site.

    Kind regards

    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
