    Default Which box to buy

    Hi

    I have been researching for a few weeks to buy a new box that will give me 7 day epg, good recording functions , fairly easy to set up and cost upto 150 max. So far I've been recommended octagon sf8, cloud ibox 2 plus and blade media 5000s. Is there anymore good boxs that fit in with what I'm looking for that you lot can recommend me?

    kind regards

    shiv

    Default Which box to buy

    I'm using miraclebox premium mini, upgraded from Openbox S9. It's a twin tuner, can watch on ipad, phone, record, series link, EPG, autobouquets, put messages on the screen to annoy the other half. 144 delivered.

    hey thanks for the reply.

    this box sound really interesting, specially that you can watch from the ipad.

    was it straight forward to set up?

    Just curious how does it work on the ipad? Do you have to download an app?


    Thanks

    for sat vu solo2 or the cheaper duo both twin tuners if you want to record,sf8 is good for looking at but need a twin tuner for recording.
    miraclebox is good and can have a cable tuner to get the hd cable channels.

    Guides online. Pretty much the same as other e2 receivers. Im using Blackbox app for streaming. Have vu+ app om android phone. There is a miraclebox app but i didnt like it. Can set timers when out and about. Have to have a static ip for external connection out the house or use ddns

    And where do you think the local seller is getting it from ????? If you are happy to buy a clone don't use a middle man and line his pockets get it direct from prc, you have no warranty wherever you buy it from. If it goes wrong suck it up and learn how to change pcb's on sat recievers

    geez, its about keeping the UR local guy in business...yes many things ( to many) come from China...and in case you don't notice, I don't buy anything directly from them and always prefer to buy local ( made in France) so I will pay more for a local item ( think UK) and ALWAYS get a special warranty on kit I buy. You just gotta ask and keep the local guys in business....NOT china

    If you want to keep the local guy in business and not China. Why buy a Chinese clone from a local guy. Buy a genuine product from a local guy and get a real warranty. I know you are in France and not uk but I still doubt very much you will get a warranty on a counterfeit product

    of course you get a warranty fron the prc ,,don't call us we will call you,but to be fair to smokin the guy he's talking about is based in jersey so is local to the uk/france and he is a more honorable dealer than many out there if anything goes wrong he will help and he does give a guarantee but as i have stated before i think the day's of the clone is passing since you have original boxes for round about the same money and you don't have to worry about bomb's in the image also use latest drivers and not patched images there's much more going for originals and you don't get no ca error which is down to the owner downloading the wrong image
