Will I be able to watch TV in high definition (HD)?

In order to watch the HD channels, you'll need and HD-compatible television and also a HDMI cable (tick the option above if you need one). If you don't have an HD-compatible TV, you'll still be able to watch all the channels in standard definition as long as you have a SCART connection in your TV.

Can I watch media files I have downloaded from the internet using my computer ?

Yes the Ariva supports many files types used by torrents on the internet such as MP3, Xvid, Mpeg 4, Flac, Ogg Vorbis and MKV

Can I record and pause live TV using this receiver?

Yes, this receiver will allow you to pause and also do timed recordings of programmes. It doesn't contain its own hard drive though, so you'll need to save the programmes on either a USB stick or USB hard drive and we can supply a 500GB hard drive as an option above. While you are recording a Saorview programme, you'll be able to watch a satellite channel, and vice versa.


  Great picture. Poor manual.  Excellent picture quality. The manual is very poor, and I noticed at least one error. It wasn't at all easy to perform tasks like grouping favourites or set timers. I found out how to do these mostly through trial and error. Works well enough now, though.  (29/09/2016) Arthur Mathews - Dublin

    Brilliant Very pleased with this product prompted delivery easy to set up and crystal clear picture.   (14/07/2016) Pat - Tipperary

  Works perfectly   Purchased this combo-box based on previous reviews for my parents, and wasn't disappointed - worked perfectly, straight from box, 2 mins wire up, all stations you would need already preset - two very happy parents!   (14/07/2016) -

  No Problems & Quick Delivery  Amazingly fast delivery; Box as expected - no issues so far! My only minor quibble is that I would have liked an 'actual' paper receipt [I'm old-fashioned that way ;-)]   (27/04/2016) GerH - Kildare
Our Reply: Hi Ger, thanks for the review. We can send you a paper copy invoice no problem if you need one and it's also possible to send you one in pdf format that you can print it off if thats easier for you?

  Top marks  Very happy with products and prompt delivery. Excellent follow-up service from Tony as regards queries, questions etc.   (25/03/2016) Kevin - Cork
