Top up tv crap...

Sigh Early software used to be good you used to be able to select your favorite channels ...

Turn it on and no More shopping / crap...

Of cource a software upgrade removed this...

Its. absolute crap

Now the f.... Thing cannot record one channel

And let you watch another without wineing that it wants to download content ...
