    hi guys ive asked a similar question before and got help on it but looking on the net earlier has got me thinking again. i quoted this off a website an would like some help to understand it- "This box is sold blank however it is very easy to set up and
    operate, we will supply you with download link and this can
    be done with an RS232 cable! With this box you will receive
    the RS232 cable free of charge." i was told they were plug and play so i assumed i just scan the channels an off i go but if the box is blank wont i have to connect it to a computer? thanks for help.. oh also how can these boxes be used legally? happy new year!!

    It depends where you buy from,some places will install the firmware on the box for you - others like the site you were looking at won't so yes if you buy a box without any firmware installed on it you will have to connect it up to your computer and put it on yourself and no they can't be ;)

    it can be a hit and miss as some boxes do not allow u to view non freeview channels as u have to upgrade firmware for ur location as uk / irl differ to let u access
