    Good stuff, its a fine box overall but can be cranky unexpectedly.

    Not impressed at all. overall picture quality was poor! Nice EPG though, but had to exchange it yesterday for new Bush BS103TZH, which to me had superior picture right across the channels.

    Plaza developed very thin vertical black lines across some channels, hence the exchange.
