About the Goodmans GFSAT200HD Digital Receiver

The Goodmans GFSAT200HD High Definition freesat Digital Box was released shortly after Freesat’s launch on 6-May-08. Whilst suffering the same as the other Alba Group models due to software recalls, the Goodmans has proven itself as a solid mid-range Freesat Digital Box, with its closest competition being both the Grundig and Humax. The Goodmans GFSAT200HD brings you good quality picture in both SD and HD, and offers a LNB in/out connection allowing you to piggyback another digital box without the need for another cable from the satellite dish (although a separate cable from the satellite with another Freesat digital box is highly recommended). The EPG (electronic programme guide) is basic but simple to use. Please note that this Goodmans Freesat HD Receiver is now able to add free to air channels not listed in the Freesat EPG; this was not available from launch.

  4. JOHN !! I have exactly the same issue,. I called Freesat they told me its a box issue and talk to Goodmans,. they tell me its a FS issue,. so I called harvard who are the company who own Goodmans, they told me to call Goodmans,. my next call will be to trading standards then Ofcom,. you have 6 years from buying yout product if its not fit for purpose which its not,. cos HD box = HD channels?? if you cant get your HD then its not fit for what you bought it for,. so you will be entitled to your money back,. thats where im going with it unless they can fix it withing the next 14 days..there is nothing you can do John,. there is no quick fix its apparently to do with the softwear then send to your box through the Dish,. regards Pete

    ITV Player is unlikely to come to this receiver; it isn’t anything to do with being available in your area. Also, there is no such thing as a HD LNB, that is just marketing nonsense.
