I'm tempted to buy an AzBox Me but I can't find any UK supplier. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Why would you want this box ?
Really bad support and probably obsolete these days.

Not if you want 4:2:2 support in a receiver it's not.

A lot of Chinese receivers are cheaply and badly made cloned junk.

glad your sorted mate it's a popular sat receiver in Spain so brush up on your Spanish and chat on a few Spanish forums. They properly have English sections so go and enjoy your receiver m8

Are you perhaps referring to its viability for getting reception of the 27.5W BBC stuff?

I rang the shop in Fulham Palace Road. Person there very helpful. Did say though that they weren't selling any at the moment because they are experiencing a software problem. Waiting for an update. I e mailed them direct and got no reply.
Anyone any ideas??!!

I had no luck there either. Next step was the Canadian distributors but they won't post outside US/Can. So I ended up in the satelliteguys.us forum and found a member who sold me one. It's in transit at the moment...fingers crossed!

I now have an AzBox MiniMe up 'n running - currently using openATV. Still pottering but pleased with progress. Any others using similar kit?

I can't really see the point of buying any AZBox as it does not really match the capabilities of any current enigma2 box - in other words too many drawbacks.

I am extremely grateful to all the efforts of the various teams to turn my AZBox into a useable slave receiver, but it has too many drawbacks to use as a main receiver.

It is a great pity, as the original AZBox HD Premium is a superb piece of hardware with features that are still unmatched in any current e2 box.

I find the 422 ability useful for the odd feed - still experimenting with different images.

Please remember any sales should be carried out in a thread in the sales section so we know everything is transparent and above board.

Things can be taken to pm when a sale is agreed to exchange payment & address details. once we get to that stage we like one last post from each member to say things are ok.

We ask this to protect both members involved & the good name of the forum. (There have been a few issues over the years where things have been done solely via pm and something has gone wrong which leads to bad feeling).

:)

Analoguesat - Thanks for the reminder about private sales

I have now put up a for sale advert for my AZBox in the Classified Section.

Yes I use an AZbox Me with OpenATV 3.0 and the blindscan is very good but not perfect. ie on 36 East I get different channels found depending if I am searching with my Azbox Premuium or the Skybox F3

I am now waiting for an X2 premium HD, this is will apparently blow all these out of the water, 2 1/2 mins for a full blindscan etc
