Having recently tried to bring to life a digibox that was actually badged Grundig, but was one actually using early Thompson electronics, I also came to the conclusion that certain of the Thompson models can't any longer be made to tune all available channels, (and it is not simply a case of loading later firmware, if available).
So I binned it, along with a newer Sagem one that could tune all channels but had never performed very well at our home. (BBC4 is problematic - a shame as it is one of the few channels that often has anything worth watching!).
Getting something newer, I'm astounded how the technology has changed, and wish I hadn't wasted any time now buggering around with stuff not up to the job.
We are boating with both "Sickle" and "Chalice",
(Tuesday evening at Gnosall, after a short boating day, but one which included the oil change from hell).
The blog is up to date again, if you like reading about oil changes!
