all a load of rubbish now

All depends what you are to be using it for tbh - it's a budget model so you get what you pay for.

You do realise people use these boxes to access sky TV channels via cardsharing?

yes

Depends on the Cline your using, if you have one cheap off eBay, chances are you will get a lot of freezing and scrambling, as hundreds of people are using it.
I have a friend who had one and he never had a problem as he was connected to a good server.
#7
what other good budget boxes are available.
#8
Get a zgemma h2s
#9
we had one for about 2 months then upgraded to a ZGemma H2S. if you are planning on using it a lot spend a bit more money and get something else. the V8S is perfect for a caravan/boat.
#10
any good deals for ZGemma H2S.
#11
Try mobi shop, £74 including next day delivery

still a bit expensive don't want to spend to much as i am all new to this.

The new V8S is still in development and good value for what it is - look to pay around £30 without gift.

If you've used sky/virgin etc before, you'll more than likely find the GUI/EPG horrible on the openbox. I found I was watching less tv because of this (not necessarily a bad thing...but not what I got it for...) It does what it's supposed to, and it's cheap, but I would also recommend the zgemma h2s for a much better user experience.
#18
Chances are you'll buy an openbox, like it and what it can do but hate the interface and EPG.
You also have to manually update channel lists frequently on the open box, which isn't hard nor time consuming it's just a inconvenice when better boxes will do it automatically.
The EPG is awful on the openbox.
Remember you won't get subscription HD channels on any satellite box.

2 year gift, I have had cheap gifts that are a nightmare. If you have a details of a good one for £10 can you pm me the details thanks

If the gift lasts longer than 6 months its a bonus
Had friends buy from 100% feedback long registered members on ebay
Gift fails around 6 months on all of them
Ebay and paypal wont do anything as to late after the sale
I looked into this and decided not to waste my money
Couldnt find a decent gift source

Gifts from ebay as said above will last 6 months max then the seller will disappear and the gift will end.
Better off getting them from source.
