Here’s another Freeview HD box, the Philips DTR5520. This is another of the ones that I’ll be looking at for Reg Hardware – keep an eye out for the roundup in a week or so.
Notable about this box is that though it bears the Philips brand name, it’s actually been designed by Pace, who are one of the UK’s longest established makers of set top boxes. In fact, so important is that as a brand, that the top of the box – as you can see in the photos – actually says “Designed by Pace.”
So, on with the photos. First, the pack shot; I’ll be coming back to this in a separate post soon, for various reasons.
That co-axial audio output is a lot more useful than the digital audio outputs on many Freeview HD boxes. I’ll be explaining why later this week.
And now, some of the screens you’ll see
