Theses things are epic. HOT!

Just remember these are clones. and £50 is around the price for clones

What does this actually do then?

Im currently running sky hd....Ive got a quad LNB ....2 feeds to my HD box and a spare i currently have not connected to anything.

What will the dreambox allow me to do from a standard sky dish?

Thanks

This is 'clone' box not Dreambox, so please correct topic header.
The price is good, just don't use Gemini with it or you may end up with a doorstop. PLI should be fine.
As for price, yes it is pretty good. Pity they don't sell other clones.

BTW, DM500 was discontinued by Dream Multimedia more than year ago, so if someone tries to sell you brand new DM500 - it'll be a clone.

you need to google it as it can't be discussed here :thumbsup:

Pushing your luck buying anything of DealExtreme for £45, OK unless anything goes wrong with it, also can you get caught for VAT, DUTY, PO charge.

all of these boxes are clones and made in china whereever you get them from , they are pretty reliable to be honest, there are other places that sell them around this price and they'll will mark it as under $40 :thumbsup:

good find....
heard a few good things about these boxes, can these control and move motorised dishes?

take a look at wikipedia

Dont forget you may get hit with import tax + vat + RM handling charge which could add another £25 to the price

$40 is £25 so its over the £18 customs limit, so if you are saying that you more than likely will be charged !

Well i didn't and all of the people i know form another forum did not get a customs charge either

Yes but you MAY get hit with customs, you got lucky but others might not, im just warning folks

you may get hit with a customs charge, what is it 12%?

so even if they do charge you it will only be 12% of £7 not a lot really if you do get hit is it

In fact reading up on it the limit is £36 for a gift and this is what it is marked so you will not be hit by customs charges if you buy the dreambox hd clone form where i got it

Which model do i get off bct for hd satelite i see 3 options

which would be the best to get for hd.

they are all the same, for some reason they list 3 different models but you can only get a 800hd for satellite

i bought £200 of clothes from america last week and got a £15 UPS charge on del. Not bad in my eyes

there is only a cable version of the 500, not the 800hd

You get charged , import tax + vat + a handling charge.

say import tax is 10% will be £4.50 = £49.50 ,vat on £49.50 = £7.42 = £56.92 + £8 RM handling charge = £64.92

If postage charge is displayed then also add this into to equasion !

Just because its marked as a gift dosent mean you wont get charged.

Most people dont get charged but it is a gamble.

Ive just got rid of my technomate, wish I hadnt now!

Can I simply buy this, connect to exisiting motorised system, and away I go? OR does this baby NEED to be connected to the internet 24/7???

Comes to £49 when checking out.... is there a code thats needed?

souljacker;6554115

that's roughly what $77.66 convers to, so the op is wrong



So the title is wrong? Its £49 total price yeah?

Purchased! for £50 delivered I took the gamble!

souljacker;6554408

you'll be glad you did mate, very good bit of kit for £50 :thumbsup:



Cool! So all I need now I take it is another router as I can then run it from my cable connection downstairs. I'll hook this baby up to router, flash an image on it, hook it up to my exisiting motorised setup, and away I go? I need to read up on CS then as well!

massmail666;6554899

you need to pay a monthly fee to the CS client.



Not much though is it??? Roughly how much for say sly italia?

Ive heard there are some FREE cs's out there too??
