[access-uk] Re: Goodmans' Smart Talk Freeview Box

Absolutely, when I'm watching on my own, I never have the TV turned on, I have 2 Freeview set-ups, one is a stand alone box, the other is built in to my DVD recorder, when there's somebody here, they sometimes have to remind me to turn the TV on, rather like the lights <smile> -

I'm fairly sure when I worked for RNIB they gave advice   on getting a
box like that to work through a high-fi system, could be worth chasing
up if you don't have or need a telly

Do you need a TV to use the box then?  If you don't want pictures, why
do you need a TV?

Hi Jack.
Yes. I could get in touch with the DAB (Derbyshire Association for the
Blind) and ask if they could demo me one. This is of course once I get a
television.
Thank you for the suggestion.
Take care.

Hello all.
I heard from a friend that RNIB had many complaints for this device
and that many customers returned it back as faulty. Is this actually
true or a definite myth?
Would like to know as this is something I am really looking forward
to receiving in the near future.
Many thanks in advance.
Take care.
