Re: Cable? Pay per view? Satellite?

Lob this one is for you.

As a proud owner of a dreambox are you willing to say where you got it from and what you paid? I have been offered one for CHF 500 and am seriously thinking about it if the claims of an additional 180 channels including all the cablecom digital decoded are true. I would then get the Turkish and the English as well as the sport for more or less one years Cablecom subs...

Re: Cable? Pay per view? Satellite?

that must be a 7020s? I have a DM500s - short on memory unless you are prepared to NFS the /var off the box

7020s is the best DB out there. You can run multiple images from USB sticks, for example, or from an installed HDD.

www.satshop.ch is where I got my DM500s from .....http://www.satshop.ch/product_info.p...roducts_id=492 - 307 francs.

It's loaded with Gemini 3.1 image. Go over to www.i-have-a-dreambox.com for lots of information (mostly German).

I assume you want DigiTurk? Should be do-able with a decent sized dish and a multi-holder - and get 28e and 7e. There are also Turkish offerings at 42 east....

Re: Cable? Pay per view? Satellite?

ah, you mean a -c model for cable? They do exist and are capable but I don't actually know what you can really really do with them.

You could try-before-you-buy? What does the seller say about his box? And why's he getting shot of it?

It is through a friend of mine who knows someone... My friend bought one and he now has 200 CC channels. I would like the same but am not happy about the CHF 500 so was wondering if anyone knew anyone else direct so to speak. Cut out the middleman...

Re: Using a DVB-C box for cable channels

OK. I need info and wonder if you lot are able to help. Have just bought an appartment in Zug, we were told by a Sky provider that we could get sky - I told him where the appartment was, but it now turns out that we can't, we are 100% in the wrong place.
Bluewin isn't available in our block - swisscom 'think' it is because it is a new block, and are unable to tell me when it will be available.
Since I have two young kids I want to have some english channels, although they seem to manage ok with the swiss at the moment. I am totally illiterate about these things, is a DVB box an option? if not what is? Do any of these record like sky +?
Many thanks in advance.

Cablecom Digital.
If they provide; I assume you don't have south-facing dish chances?
