    Default Which box to buy?

    I have sky multi-room with a sky+ box and I have had to cancel it as there are no telephone lines near the box and sky wanted to charge me double as it wasn't plugged in. So I'm looking for a FTA satellite receiver with USB PVR functions. I'm considering the Openbox s10 as its rather cheap but I'm also considering the Fortec Star Passion+ HD box which you can get for 80 at Maplins. The Passion+HD has an EPG which works on Astra 28.2 but the Openbox is newer and this feature may be introduced later.

    Which box would you recommend I go for and are there any other boxes I should consider?
    Thanks

    Hi I'm new this satellite business as well, from what I've gathered alot of people are recommending dreambox dm500s (50 pounds) for SD content and for HD dm800hd (150 pounds).

    I've just came across the Blade Media BM7000-s which is available for 150 which also looks pretty decent.

    definately go for the dm800hd pro version or the new se version.
