Well Worth The Money No problems yet. Very good picture and sound. Easy to use and auto programmed itself with the sky remote to work the volume so happy days :-) 22 July 2014
great tv for the price Great tv, easy to set up, some reviews I read complained about the sound but I think its fine. Smart tv is easy to use, I'm not sure if you can add extra apps such as 4od or itv player, my son loves youtube on there. 19 July 2014
Great value TV This TV is great in all respects apart from the weak sound and poor quality speakers. Dead easy to set up just connected my Tivo and a set top aerial and away it went found all of the available freeview channels in a couple of minutes.(including HD). Lots of different settings available to get the best picture for your own preference.. After I connected to my router ( by cable) I was able to get the pre loaded apps and also access to the internet. Overall a great buy which I would recommend. 16 July 2014
Top class tv for price brillant picture quality and features 16 July 2014
not impressed when working i find this tv fine for the price,but in the short time i have had it i have had to disconnect at the mains 2 times because it had frozen while streaming programs and had to restart once while on freeview because the sound had gone off 15 July 2014

Answer: 
Most LED TVs don't have power off buttons these days. What I did was to plug it into a socket extension strip - anti-surge for extra protection (my socket strip also has an anti surge for the aerial) as most of those have switches on them which kills the power to everything plugged into it.

Flip the switch, TV and other peripherals (like a DVD player, speakers, etc.) all go off and save power. It's like adding a power switch without invalidating the guarantee.

The manual specifies installing Nero Media Home on your pc to act as dlna server. I assume this is windows only - are other compliant dlna servers supported (eg if I want to use linux) ?

Answer: 
To tune a sky box in via an ariel cable you must select to tune both digital and analogue signals in the set up procedure as your TV is digital but your sky connection is analogue. But I would recommend buying an HDMI cable to connect your sky to your TV as it will offer you the best picture quality as this TV supports 1080p video/audio.
