    Hello,

    I have a Satellite Dish at my balcony and looking for a reliable HD Box Receiver out there to Flash and use to watch all channels. Can someone please advice which one I can go for and where and how to flash the box after I have purchased it please. My Satellite has Dual Cox cable connectors. Would prefer HD box. is the Amiko HD SE or the Openbox V8s full HD any good and can they be flashed to get all Sly channels?

    Please advice on both Box receiver and where I can download the firmware to flash the box

    Thanks in advance

    I have no complaints with the zgemma star 2s , it can record one channel while watching another and it's enigma 2 so installing add ons like kodi or iptv player is handy too . Ordered mine from ali express but Google and see what's on offer

    • I don't know enough about the boxes to advise you on which to get their is a wide range of receivers out there .I'm happy with the zgemna star 2s ! It's up to you which to get ,the more you spend the more options you have ,I'm trying to upload a pic of the instructions from the manual , I'll get back to you on that !

    No problem , you might want to look for something with a twin tuner so you can record one channel while watching another as most receivers are hd now

    judyboy, you strike me as some character. atghwkin has told you that the zgemma 2s is the best box but you dont listen. you also seem to have this idea that by 'flashing' a box you suddenly get all the channels. you are so incorrect. please do not post a response to this as I will not reply. I have seen your type in the past. a type leach. you just grab onto somebody and suck them dry

    No one has begged you to share your thoughts so if you have nothing to say, shut up and mind your business you Twat, didn't ask for your opinion. Also met ur type in d past before, greedy arrogant and stupid not realising that this is a FORUM where people share their experience and ideas, you idiot, grow up @fintannl

    you can flash whatever img is available for your box, you wont get all channels until you do some reading and spending ££s. both boxes are basic boxes not linux, both have 1 tuner,

    it struck me with judyboys answer WHERE IS PIOPAT. I thought I had left this forum in his safe hands. Or is there a new successor to him. Heavens, how times move on

    sarcasm is your strong point ;) . obviously the Op must be on a budget if you look at the boxes hes looking at and the prices, i know next to nothing about boxes compared to you, piopat and cakti, just giving him basic info. Top o the morning to you
