Main DISADVANTAGES of Edison 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 separately
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 adapter if using either external modulator or Trilink with this Edison PICCOLLO combo box
As the Edison PICCOLLO 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
Also this is NOT a 12v combo box, so would not be suitable for mobile homes, camper vans, trucks etc…
