Hi all im looking into setting up a 1m dish sat system ,im looking for a HDTV reciever,i have seen the topfield 7700 and humax around,Is there a good HD dreambox reciever about with good cams and images etc? Im mainly after sky channels like sports etc as NTL no longer broadcast sky one and sky sports news.
Like i said im new to all this and when ever i search for info i end up getting more lost and side tracked with other boxes like eurovox etc, any help would be greatly appreciated thank you :)

Welcome to the forum :)

The HD Dreambox is the 8000 and it has not been released yet- should be soon.

If you have more non-Dreambox satellite questions please post them in one of the other more "general" sections.

Anyway

U could start with a cheaper one, like the 500 or 600

Just to get the feeling of it

Dreamboxes are something else

U must program them and they run on Unix but when U learned hot to, then they are super

They can emulate any cam and with the proper proframming they can do wonder
