I'm not sure if the mods have a problem with discussing this box here - but a few people have asked me question regarding it.

Basically, once flashed with the correct firmware the box enters some CS group. (You dont have to make any settings or share anything yourself, rumour is is that its a chinese server???!?)

The box then clears Pr*miere on 19e, A*T on 13e, the No*a package on 13e & others including some xxx channels.

its a cheap looking/performing box, but its complementing my Dreambox perfectly. (I can now watch the A1GP on S*persport for example)

Right - any questions? :)

i'm not sure what a plentiful firmware is lol

you dont have to update the keys as you are not hacking the encryption.

Keep us updated; if they don't pull the plug on CS these should sell well.


I am tempted but I would like to know more about the cardreader and
sharing options. Are you tied to China or can you branch out with your
own spider? I guess there is no Gb*x. Does it have RGB out by scart?

Here's a cut and paste of the spec. if anyone interested.

i dont think you can break out & start sharing yourself, but who knows. Details on this receiver are scant, and I bought it based on 'whispers' on other forums.

I may be wrong, but if the 'service' stops tomorrow then thats it & my box will be on ebay. I wouldn't be happy using this as my 'main' receiver, as its slow & awkward in operation.

If i get six month A*T Sports & Pr*miere then I'll be happy. The No*a package is not too shabby either. (Forgot to mention that dutch C*nal Digitaal is shared as well.)

The output seems to be RGB

As ever with this hobby, pay the money & take the risk..... :)
