TVonics' MFR-300: 'set-back' box

Like any other Freeview set-top box, the MFR-300 sports an eight-day programme guide. It also has a built-in CPU that, TVonics claimed, makes for "exceptionally fast and responsive" red-button text services.

The gadget's also compatible with broadcast programme Audio Description feeds, so it's handy for folk with seeing difficulties.
