DISADVANTAGES of Combo Box

  • Does not support MHEG5 which will mean no teletext on HD terrestrial channels
  • More expensive than either a HD Satellite Receiver or a stand alone Digital Terrestrial Receiver but cheaper than getting them seperately
  • It does not have an RF out ie. it is not possible to run the picture to an additional room unless you use either an external Modulator or a TRI-Link (allows you to operate combo box with a sky eye from another room)
  • Note: You may need to add in an RCA to scart adaptor if using either external modulator or Trilink with the Optimuss Underline 3 in 1 combo box
  • As the Optimuss Underline 3 in 1 does not have a scart output, an RCA to scart adaptor could be used to convert the RCA output to scart input on TV if you so desire. See associated products for RCA to scart adapter
