I'm interested in a new TV approx 40" or bigger.  My budget is 1200.  I'd like 2 inputs for satellite, the ability to connect to my NAS drive and stream videos from it over ethernet.  

What exists that fulfills this criteria?

I'm not sure that TVs sold in Ireland come with freesat/view tuners (most decent sets in the UK do).  In Ireland you can get free-to-air you may need to get a separate PVR (e.g. Humax).  You may want to check this out.. http://satellitetvireland.co.uk/freesat-ireland

HI There,

I'll pass this on to our TV expert to check what we have that will fit the bill and will let you know as soon as I hear back from her.

Some of the Samsung smart TV's take a satellite input but you are probably limited to free sat

HAve a look at this one.

Also this cashback offer is interesting.

This is probably the TV but slightly over budget.

Thanks dingding, the last one does seem to be the right one.  Any idea if I could walk into Currys Galway and buy this today?  Its over my budget, but I'm an impulsive buyer...

Don't forget the €50 cashback http://www.currys.ie/images/Currys/Banners/Cashback_Claim_Form_Dixons_IRISH.pdf

Worth checking if anyone else has one in stock in Galway and get them to do a price match.

I think Currys give you back 10% of the difference in price, so you might get it for 1296.  I would imagine that the cashback will apply if you buy from a reputable shop.

Enjoy.

Did the "TV Expert" ever get back to you on this?

Think what irishgrover meant was he wonders if Declan (who used to look after this forum and left) ever read the threads here and get saddened over the terrible customer service that is offered. 2 days to respond to your first post and it has been over 5 days since they last answered and said they would be back.

Hi Snipe, sorry for delayed answer, but yes, soundman is correct. There was a time a few months ago when Declan (MD/CEO?) spend a lot of time on here and really build up the Currys / PC world brand. They got rid of him and things immediately went to ****e. Classic example of what happens when incapable and/or powerless company reps deal with the public in a public forum. This "talk to.." forum has become a PR nightmare showing off the new improved PC world / Currys in a very unfavourable light.
Declan worked his bollix off to build up a brand and loyalty, his replacements managed to destroy it in a matter of weeks and months.... :-(
