"Sorry Willis and Biggles - My mistake.
I should have said Terrestrial receivers have really only been around in great numbers for four years. We only really started installing terrestrial receivers in 2011. Prior to that people were buying up large…"
Dish TV in Hamilton here are the National sales and support for Magic TV boxes, so give them a call on 07-929-4123. I'm sure they'll be able to repair it, or supply a new front panel.
