Grundig GUFSAT01HD


RH Numbers

This Grundig-branded Freesat receiver hails from the same production line as the Bush BFSAT01HD. There are some cosmetic differences to the fascia, but for all intents and purposes the two are satellite peas in a pod. The pair share the same basic connectivity as well as a default Freesat and EPG. Even the lookalike remotes are interchangeable. Although priced a little higher than its Bush stablemate, this STB is little more than functional. The user interface is low on resolution and looks rather naff. Still, high def channels look undeniably satisfying, and as a source of free digital TV it can’t be sniffed at. But answer this: would you really want to own something called a Guf Sat?

Smart and well-built, this first generation Freesat+ recorder remains a firm favourite, simply because it’s a treat to own. The UI is clean and responsive, sitting as a transparent overlay on live programmes, and recorded image quality is excellent. Connectivity may be standard, but there’s useful extra functionality onboard. In addition to HDMI, Ethernet, Scart and digital optical audio outputs, there’s a front-mounted USB which allows MP3s and JPEGs to be transferred to the hard drive, as well as played off a stick. 

Beneath the hood is a 320GB hard drive, enough for around 80 hours of HD or 200 hours of SD. The Foxsat HDR is a venerable but versatile satellite DVR.
