Hi, you would do well to replace the Clarke box with the Humax.

It has more options and more networks available for free as well.

Also it is much more well known and supported in case you have questions on its usage;-)

I have been a cable / Satellite tech for over 25 years now so I am sure of this.

You will be happy with the change.

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete please rate my service kindly.
