    Hi Guys,
    It has been a while since I posted on here,,old starview days,,lol.
    Well here gos,sitting in the garden yesterday,and two gentlemen
    approached me and asked if I would like to buy a cable box of them
    for, 300 hundred euro, plus a fee of 10 euro per year,the name of
    the box was foxy boxy,but you need an internet connection..
    has any one else heard of this..

    even the kryptview for uk only uses the vm cable to scan on and internet to decrypt.

    trying to gather if foxy boxy uses both cable and internet or just internet like an apple2.

    i would ask to go see this box working and also if if you can have a look round the back of the box, make sure the wires from this box are plugged into tv and ask to use the remote to change channel (they must be local guys if there nipping door to door)

    my god uproar was relying on that for footy that starts tomorrow,balls to that,always thought as the time was right and maximum buys,any deposits going also the same route.
    this box is as good.
