The Pace 430 is a very good new box for Europe but I think a new model has come out withn a new curved shape,(470 or 490 )

If you are wanting a new one then go for the Pace DS440N. For a second hand model then I recommend the Pace 2600c1 or DS430N. The Pace 2600c1 has the best receiver for fringe reception of all the models I mentioned.

Places to buy (that I have used and can recommend)....

http://www.smart2check.com/digibox.htm
http://www.simplydigital.co.uk/acatalog/Freesat.html
And a myriad of others!! ....
I'm sure others will give their own recommended suppliers as well ( I hope :) )
....Obviously Ebay for used stuff ......
Cards on their own: http://www.freesatfromsky.co.uk/ make sure you have a UK address to register it to.

Hope that helps

Cheers

Nick
