You have the UK D-Book spec to see the differences?
If you can pickup N.I., IOM or Wales, then an "Freeview HD" box is a good idea. Otherwise get Saorview certified.
Unless you have a Lab and have tested every "Freeview HD" model of box against the Nordig Spec you can't make that "too sweeping" statement.
I know you want to be helpful, but often you seem assert stuff without any facts to back it up.
