In most cases, a cable box, therefore they're not allowed to be discussed here... :)

Probably correct.

Where did you get the box from and what were you hoping to do with it?

The D-Box is no good for channel 4 and 5, the Sky digibox with a Freesat or expired subscription card will be fine.

There are still updates for the D-Box available, but they are not that popular nowadays. :)

,with a build it Multicam,the best one is that calles "digtal freedom",and nds compatible softcam,you can also watch video guard channels,like on dreambox!
or does channel 5,sending,no channel name?
the problem,of dbox 2 is ,when channel is nameless,it will not apear,in the search results!

Have a look on ebay, they normally won't advertise the card, but if there is one, they normally take a picture with the card in the box. If not, then get one of your UK based friends to buy a freesat card for you.

I found a D-Box at the local repair shop where I just got my Kirby G5, the guy told me it's PSU had blown bigtime and wasn't economical for him to repair, but the owner's not collected it, but I don't know which version it was, and I don't have any need for one... :D
