    i am looking into buying a dreambox 500c.

    i have virgin media standard package, so would i just plug the dreambox 500c in and then take the cable that is now going into my ntl box out and put it into the dreambox.

    would i have to flash the box, i do not know what this i but i see it in all the topics about these boxes.

    whould i be picking up all the channels like the sports and movie channels.

    Where would be the best place to get one and the arverage price.

    i seen somewhere about some boxes are clone and some are genuine and that genuine boxes last longer is this true?

    i am in the cardiff area if this makes a difference of what channels i would pick up.

    sorry theres a lot of questions any help would be much appreciated
