    Does anyone know anything about these Skybox v8

    A number of questions I have. My box epg guide just doesn't work it only shows the program what I'm watching none of the others on any other channels and some channels such as watch, gold and Dave won't work they say no signal but watch +1, gold +1 and Dave ja vu works. The epg guide I would really like to fix so I can record I have a external hard drive I can plug in.

    you'll need to re load you channel list. google open box channel update there is lots of tutorials there

    This is the best one, gives sky channel numbers. You have to update the channel list about once a month

    The V8 is a cheap piece of **** you need a z gemma or something like that. The z gemma can download new channel lists and epg automatically, it also has a twin tuner and can be made to look and function like sky+
    You can download an EPG onto the external HDD, but from experience it never works.

    Back up your current channel list as the new one may stop your box from "working" on some channels.
    You could use lyngsat & just search the transponder that the channels have moved to.

    Hi sorry not meaning to bump the thread just wanted to know with the z gemma the channel lists are they auto updated or do you have to update now and then. You can get 12 month gifts from ebay but wondering if they auto update or not.

    Channel lists are for when channels move transponder and you'll be left without that channel until you update the transponder list. The Zgemma can do this automatically.
    The "gift" has nothing to do with this, but I wouldn't buy anything like that from eBay. You can get a 12 month sub elsewhere.
