    Hi
    This is my first post so please be kind!im going to buy my first enigma 2 enabled sat box and hook up to my existing sky dish this week,my question is which box to go for and what cline server to choose??!I believe i shouldn't pay any more than around 50-70 a year but all the ones i can find seem more than that??Any PM's would be most gratefully received!
    My situation is i would like to start with a cheapish single feed HD box to start as im going to just test the water for now before going for a double/triple tuner box in the future.So this box will just go in the toy room and be the guinea pig!
    My thoughts are the Skybox F3 to start me off maybe?unless anyone can offer any other suggestions?
    Thankyou for any replies and help in advance!
    Chris

    Dont waste your money on expensive stuff on sat at this time, if you are, get a cheap box that wont put you out of pocket when it goes and dont get any shares over 3 months, we dont know if or when it will go,

    if i


    if i buy a subscription, is it not just someone sharing there card to me and charging a subscription fee? if so is the difference that with a sub, the amount of sharing is limited, and with sharing it's unlimited?

    any ideas on getting a gud subscription??

    thanks in adavance!!

    firstly card sharing is illegal and asking for sharing providers on this forum is not accepted and can lead to banning. having said that I tend to agree with hubabubas that your understanding of sharing is certainly entertaining and somewhat flawed

    well every1 here seems to be full of knowledge, but reluctant to give any, understandably.
    sorry im not too experienced in this area, as u can see from my 1st post, new to this : as in i just bought an f3, theres only a couple of days left b4 the footie comes back & i was just looking for some info on how to get setup or a pointer in the right direction,(which i thought forums are all about) not to get the piss taken for asking question.

    thanks for the help, guess i'll have to find a more user friendly forum for the answer

    if you look at piopats guide which is stickie at the top of this forum area you find all the information you need. this forum is extremely helpful if you are willing to make the slightest effort to read just a tiny bit of the information available. so please lets quit the huff and try and do a bit of self-learning. then ask more sensible questions which are more likely to be answered in a kinder manner to the one you seem to be somewhat peeved about.

    dmobb, over the years these guys have put a lot of effort into getting and giving information with regards to STB's, I think, as fintannl has put it, do some digging yourself, and if you don’t find anything that you can use, come back and explain what you have done, as there are lots of guys only too willing to help you, if you are willing to take their advice, I know from my own dealings with the forum, that you can get frustrated, when you can't get it right, so be patient, do a bit of digging, and come back, I spent hours trying to load a box last week but in the end got help from Piopat and guys and is now working so don’t despair.
