Re: Cablecom cracking down on dreambox owners?

Just a heads up to anybody who's planning on buying a dreambox, there's at least one seller on Ricardo punting these out for around half the normal price with a 30 day option to return for refund.

These are fake units as a colleague of mine found out yesterday. When contacted the seller freely admitted that they were fake, but obviously couldn't declare that on Ricardo, hence the 30 day return option - which the seller appears to be honouring.

Apparently these boxes work, but only up until the firmware or something needs to be updated, after which point they become plastic bricks.

Basically if the price is too good to be true etc.
