    at about £60 the openbox is a good budget hd box and well worth the money .you can add a hdd to it for recording but the hdd will cost about another £40 if all you want is to view channels and record the odd program thats all you need . if you have the money the blade bm7000 is a better box as it has a better epg and you can install channel lists etc.

    you'll need sub for each box, some providers have deals for more than 1 box, if you connect from the same house (same IP adds).

    go for the blade, its the best box going. but the openbox at £60 is not bad, as I have them both

    its a media player too, plays mkv , mp4 , avis etc so if you have a 3d tv you can download sbs mkv and the blade will play it no bother, record one thing and watch something else, and also a piece of p*ss to flash, i wanted one but none were in stock anywhere so i got the dm800 pvr clone still kick myself for not waiting for the blade

    Blades picture quality is excellent, even the quality of the non hd channels are very good on it, its also very user friendly. plenty of other features on it like, Youtube, Maps, Weather, Internet Radio.
