Does anyone have any experience of this receiver on the fringe.

I have heard the PACE SKY+2 box has a sensitive tuner, but I would like a big disk.

Thanks

why not just whack a 250Gb in a Pace V2 or buy one already upgraded from Simply Digital? ;)

Hi,


we will have our mits on one of these in CY early next week.. it will then spend the next week or so travelling the length and breadth of the island ..

I'll report back as soon as we've done some tests.

Thank you so much. That info will help me enormously. Perhaps you can post the results as a comparison with other "known good" digiboxes including a comparison to the MK I SKY+ box (if you have one) which is what I have at present.

My box is pulling in some of 2D and some of the North beam during the day here in Gran Canaria but we lose it at night. However I am currently operating on a botched (not by me) installation with temporary (Teléves) LNB and a neigbours TV ariel and mast in line of sight to the satellite! The installation should be being corrected in the next couple of weeks at which point I will know where I stand with the current box. The MK I SKY+ performs better than my PACE 2200 - original METAL BOX TUNER version (NOT lousy ZIF tuner version).

Once my installation has been corrected which will involve moving the dish and a different LNB I will post a full report .

That is great. I can cobble the complete picture together by finding other comparisons between those receivers and the MK I SKY+

Many many thanks.
