Completely satisfied, would recommend
Completely satisfied, I would recommend this set top box to others. It does everything a basic set top box should do and more. I haven’t had any problems with it. I bought at big W for a great price and I’m thinking of getting another to use on an old tv I use for gaming in my spare room.
OK, but the incorrect Logical Channel Numbers (LCNs) detected make it difficult to select the channel you want to watch
Regarding the real-time viewing of FTATV is concerned, this my STB-7000 is working as advertised. The picture quality is good, the sound is good, & the Menu system for OK.
As I don't use these machines for the recording or the playing of material from USB sources, I can't comment about that.
All that said, my STB-7000 does suffer from two faults:
Fault One: the Logical Channel Numbers (the LCNs) that the box allocates to the TV channels that it detects are not the familiar TV Channel numbers that people know like 2, 22, 24, 7, 73, 9, 99, 10,...etc. Instead of starting from TV Channel 1, & then going up to TV Channel 99, they start from TV Channel 350 & then go up, with no gaps, all the way through to TV Channel 388. For example, The first TV channel on the list, TV Channel 350, is 7 Brisbane, a few more TV channels up is TV Channel 353, which is 7mate Brisbane, then TV Channel 359 is SBS ONE, then TV Channel 368 is Channel 9 Brisbane, etc., with the last channel, TV Channel 388, being ABCTV HD. This means that unless the user has a great memory, the user will need to have a pre-prepared 'Cheat Sheet' in order to know what channel to select to get to their desired channel. Fault Two: In the hope that a software upgrade might fix this problem, I downloaded & installed the latest software version from the Laserco website. While my STB-7000 appeared to accept the latest software update, SW Version 1.1.3, when I checked to ensure that the new software had been installed, the old software, Version 1.1.2, was still the software being used. I tried updating the software three times, with the same result being obtained each time.
Purchased in July 2021 at Big W Retail Stores for $39.00.
