    Hey lads,

    Anyone out there in Ireland using Blade BM7000s HD Satellite Receiver?
    Is it worth the moneyas an FTA box or is there anything else out there that's just as good for the money or cheaper?

    Thanks lads.

    Was only gonna consider the Blade Box as I may go down the CS route in the future.
    I know there are many other boxes out there but the Blade seems to be getting good reviews both as a good set top box and as a user friendly box.

    Is there much involved in setting one of these boxes up?
    Have a standard Sky dish but no ariel, basic cable only!

    depends where you are, if your in Dublin, then you will need a bog standard aerial or a simple coat hanger for the terrestrial side and your sat dish for the sat side, simple to set up, scan and thats it

    Nice 1 MICKAH,

    I'm in the (Not SO) Sunny South East.....
    My neighbour has a proper Satellite finder so that side should be easy enough...would think getting an ariel up should be the same!
