I believe that the Dragon CAM can pretty much get what is available with the Dreambox at the moment, but often the Dreambox is first when new codes are released. The Dreambox has a lot more to offer than just what you can get though, it is almost a lifestyle choice. :)

Cheapest I have found is buying from Germany, www.hm-sat.de is the one I've used.

No hard drive, Its only the first one ive seen for sale so far, only seem to see the 7000s for sale in England. Probably looking in the wrong places ( ebay and What sat) Will check where you have suggested thanks for the quick replies and help

Is there much of a difference between the 7000 and the 7020? I don't mean price.

Hi Timbo86

The 7020 is only out a little while. Most of us here have the 7000 & 5620 models. I think the new one has cd drive cant remember. But plenty of firmware for the 7000 at the moment. We will just have to wait till a few members upgrade to the new one to get more feedback.

I think that there are a few differences, but haven't tried one of the 7020s.

The 7020 has a built in analogue and DSL modem, plus an RF modulator and 12v switch, I believe that the flash memory may be bigger as well.

I bought from hm-sat, but there are a couple of other E-tailers mentioned in some other threads, none of the competitive ones are based in UK though as far as I know.
