Finally, my old Telstraclear T Box has died. The technician (Noel Leeming) who came with my new TV said he couldn't even touch the AC Adapter as it was too hot. I don't really want to get a new Vodafone box as i'm not impressed with the reviews - I want to be able to record anything and everything, like my TBox does.
I would rather stay with Vodafone, but if I can't record everything then i would have to switch to Sky.
But then I'd have to sign up with a contract (24 months) and as I'm looking at retiring this year or next, I don't want to have to payj an exit fee. Good grief!
Can anything be done to "fix" the T Box? Is it the actual box that's making the adapter hot, or is it the adapter itself?
In saying that, the reviews for the new VTV product you've read probably relate to the product launched 2 years ago. The product has come a long way and you should check it out. It comes packed full of so much TV and Movie content that not being able to record 100% of Freeview shouldn't be an issue.
If you direct message me we can sort out the best solution for you. You won't have to pay exit fees given you're a loyal Tbox customer,
