Nope, they are nearly all supplied with only the 2 pin plugs I'm afraid. However I do agree that a £300 box should perhaps include one of the adaptors, as my wholesale supplier does and these are receivers less than a fifth of that price.

Those 2 pin adaptors are dangerous. You can get arcing inside them if the pins on the lead waggle loose. Chop the adaptor off and put a proper 3 pin plug in it.

Not the ones I use, they have a fastening screw, there is no way that they're going to come loose. :)

found a couple of threads about moving the motor with the remote control and aparantly its the right way round .you have to imagine u are standing in front of the dish.which makes it right.i have a Q im setting up a wireless network .am i right in saying .i need to have the wireless router connected to the dreambox with a short earthnet cable then i will be able to communicate with the dreambox from my pc through the wireless network.i need to be sure as i will have to move the router .all so why do the dreambox have to be connected to the net apart from downloading images.
