Dear All,

I was just after some help please. I currently have an Arcelik box, blue zeta cam and fun card 4, Cas2 interface with add-on.

I realise that the equipment is a good few years old now and wondered whether it was worthwhile purchasing a new box or keep the box but buy a new cam/card.

If I was to buy a new box, I am interested in any where you can update the keys directly with the remote control. Can you recommend any? Also, can you recommend a card/cam combition which works really well.

The problem with my current box is that it is Turkish and all the information on the web relating to it is in Turkish. My budget is £300 tops.

Thanks,

DJJE.

Hi,
The technomate 1000 series have really good support at the moment,
and direct key entry is available. The 1500 also includes card and cam slot I believe.

Apparently a number of packages can be opened.

A friend of mine has just bought a NanoXX receiver, it connects to his router and is self updating, for how long who knows, but he is chuffed with it at the moment. :)

or you could add a dragon cam, it opens MOST of the stuff the receivers open. You can pick a 2nd hand one up for around £30 on the various for sale section's on the sat forums.

I would go for the vantage or technomte 1500, if your going for a new box.
