    no USB port :(


    yeah, the Olin stb with usb & pvr functions has been advertised on tv recently for $149, as usual HN are clearing old stock to make way for the usb version no doubt, if you don't need to record this is not a bad choice


    Manufacturers web site. For user manual and firmware update.

    Looks good for the cheapest HD STB I have seen. Cheaper than buying a SD STB.


    I've got an Olin set top & haven't had any problems with it, looks like a good buy.


    For extra $29 the Awa @ BigW could be better with USB + MPEG4

      some people may be just needs this set top box to upgrade their old tv to be able to watch digital channel.


    Just got one, works like a charm, "receives all digital channels" as said on the box, has this cute blue button back light thing and very user friendly menu and control; the real plus is:you can even use it with non-roof antennas, like i'm doing now—its a good signal receiver. I.e ones you just plug in. Thanks poster. XD And, Btw, u people who are just complaining, its only 49 bucks—to me its does all I need it to.=)


    This model is OLHVBT3400 (ORP $129) but I also see another model OLHVBT2000 for $49 @ Harvey Norman ORP $148. So look like OLHVBT2000 is expensive than OLHVBT3400? Just wondering which model did you guys bought? Is OLHVBT2000 newer than OLHVBT3400 or the HN guy suck me in OLHVBT2000 as they sold out OLHVBT3400? I though larger number is the newer model but maybe not in this case!? Is OLHVBT2000 better than OLHVBT3400?
    Google also show model OLHVBT2000 cost more than OLHVBT3400.


      it seems 3400 got better features
