Loving it! Very impressed with this. Extremely easy set-up of the FreeviewHD and the Wi-fi! Sound quality is great, picture is excellent and it looks lovely even switched off. Already told lots of my friends and family about it. 16 September 2014
Television I was very happy with this t.v and the excellent help from the lovely young lady , only gripe is that the next week the price reduced by £30 ! 09 September 2014
Looks great, great visuals too. 04 September 2014
brilliant buy. this tv has everything i wanted from a H.D tv, and it was excellent value. 02 September 2014
Great TV If you are looking for a good screen, sound and picture then this TV is perfect, however if your are looking for a modern smart tv I wouldn't recommended, you cannot add additional apps and the only one's I can use are youtube and BBC I player, netflix etc are not available. Overall a great buy for a TV size upgrade 28 August 2014

I tried an old Hard Drive however that was just USB powered and it did not work. However I was able to play media from just a standard USB stick.

Hope this helps.

Sky Remote Control

3 months, 1 week ago
Very happy with quality of TV bought today but we do not seem to have full Sky RControl use. The volume control on the Sky RC does not work but most other things do work OK.

We try loading a code as per instructions 065 but RC would not flash twice at the end. Are there any other codes or help you can give please.
Thanks

I bought the tv with the offer of the Veezy 200 dongle at a reduced rate however when i plug the dongle in nothing happens and when i goto settings/network settings and try goto wireless it just says no dongle found?

I just had the dongle and a stand for dongle in the pack no instructions or drivers or CD should it just be plug and play or am i doing something wrong?

Answer: 
If the dongle came as an offer then you'd expect it to be compatible so there is an unlikely chance that it's faulty.

It is just plug and play, so you're okay there.

I've found that dual band dongles, those that do 2GHz and 5GHz work. I tried a 2GHz only and it was as you described above. You'll know it's worked as when you plug it in it'll say "Wi-Fi dongle detected" after about 10 seconds.

Maybe return the dongle and try a replacement?

You can connect any external device that has an HDMI connection. I connect my Virgin box via one of the two HDMI sockets. You should be able to connect your Sky box in the same way
