Main disadvantages of Ferguson Ariva 255 Combo S Receiver

The Ferguson Ariva 255 does not support MHEG5 so 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 i.e… 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 box with a sky eye from another room)
