Foxtel IQ2 Review

Thu, Jun 5, 2008

Older, Reviews

Well It has finally been installed, yes I now have foxtel IQ2 and I can now, as I said, give a review of it. It was my bad I did not give a picture of the new glossy remote ill try and upload it later but for now just enjoy the pics below [UPDATE]: Pictures of the remote are now uploaded and ready to be viewed :D .
My Video :P :


View This Video In High Definition

Main Features:

  • 320GB HD
  • HD Channels
  • HDMI, Component, Ethernet, Optical Audio and eSATA ports built into the unit
  • Brand new Remote control design
  • Glossy black completely re-invented look, with Blue LED’s to top it all off
  • On Demand High-Definition Movies
  • you don’t have to wait after you order movies to watch them. You can just watch them right there
  • Up To 1080i Resolution

All in all its a great set top box and much better than its predecessor the Foxtel IQ just one complaint would be its uses too much power (Like bandwidth) the old IQ box used barely any power/bandwidth but apart from thats its a fantastic unit…. And last but not least here are, of course, the Pictures:

Something interesting you may notice is that on the Foxtel IQ 2 box on the front it has an eSATA port for an external HD. Now Foxtel has stated that they will make use of this feature later on in time.

If they are planning to use the eSATA port to connect an External Hard Drive this could mean that you *potentially could* have 10x the space, for example if you were to purchase a 3TB drive from wallmart or best buy you could just whack it into the eSATA port and away you go 10x the space :D .

Now onto the next biggest update which is the ethernet port which I have also taken a photo of. Again, Foxtel have stated that they will use this later on in time for what purpose, I really don’t know?

maybe to order movies faster or maybe to download movies from the internet. Or maybe to get online content for example software updates, *Faster* (Actually they have already implemented that. It downloads it over your cable connection) music, movies or movie trailers.

    Nice site..I was watching your setup video and noticed you have a bose lifestyle system.

    Have you explored controlling the IQ2 box with the Bose remote. I can’t see that anyone’s had much luck with that. Have you?

    Interested,

    Willo.

  3. Bilsta57 says:

    @brad: It’s just the standard IQ2 setting nothing special lol. :D @Willo: I haven’t actually explored controlling the IQ with the bose remote as I have always just used the respective remotes to each device.

  11. brad says:

    yeah for sure to dear wish foxtel would hurry up with new channels

  12. What is the cheapest place to buy good external hard drives? I’m looking to get something at least 500 Gb. Are Seagate and Western Digital the best kinds? What about Samsung?

    FOXTEL IQ2 — don’t get it— it is seriously misleading– 70% of the channels ARE IN 14:9 ratio which is like watching oldstyle TV on a widescreen! — my family hated at despite the HDTV, sent it back the next day as Foxtel can’t or won’t fix the problem. It is not explained in any of their advertising so beware
