Hi there,

I am trying to see if there could be any use for someone from my mum's old TV. It has nt been used since May 2009 and I have just switched it to see what's what. She bought it in 2000 and as I have now discoverd it used the old Ondigital service with a Cam and smartcard. When switched on the screen shows display about Smartcard and Retune. Now I now that the world of TV has changed considerably since 2000. I am not aware of how this telly used to receive service. My knowledge on TVs doesnt really extend beyond TVs with built in freeview and my 80 year old mum really is nt aware of any of the details surrounding it except for " It used to have a really good picture"! It seems a shame to just chuck it. I would appreciate any wisdom on if/how it could still be of use for someone? Many "Thank Yous"
