Just moved into a new rental with a satellite on the roof.  I'd like freeview, not bothered by having recording facilities or a hard drive or even th ebest user interface, just good quality pictures.

Any recommendations amongst the sub $130 cheapies?

Do they vary in picture quality, or just features and facilities?

Sorry for the newbie question....thanks

Just an update, I got the Globo 4100C in the end.  $120.  Works a treat, exactly what I was after and I found Freeviewshop had excellent customer service, and helped me set it up.

My inlaws run a couple of cheap Strong receivers - the install instructions are pretty tricky to decipher, and the menus are lacking, but they do the job, and I am the good guy since their TV pictures are clear (before it was the good ol' bunny ears!)
