Disadvantages of Walker WPS818C Saorview Combo Receiver

 

  • While it is an Approved Saorview Combo, it has a generic Free to Air tuner on the UK satellite end of things, which means that the EPG on the UK stations will not have a 7 Day Programme Guide (Only Now/Next)
  • A pre-programmed box will only have the UK stations pre-programmed. You will have to perform a quick scan for the Irish channels when you receive this Saorview Combo. It’s a very easy process. (See video guides tab for more info)
  • There is no scart output on the Walker WPS818C but you can adapt it using a 3.5mm to scart adapter cable using the AV out port on the box
