    Re: other boxes!!

    Anyone using the DDigital cable box?

    @ 95 and 1 years access to a CS it sounds pretty good value for money.

    I'm not interested in buying one as I use satellite, I'm just curious.

    I think so mate.

    Kinda looks like an Ambit modem with a Scart socket, fooking tiny.

    What's crap about them?

    The reason I asked was because a mate asked me about them, but the sales pitch he was told was..."It connects to the Kryptview server".

    Now, AFAIK Kryptview have a fairly usable server, one of the best 'retail' servers.

    and he told me to stay clear of them and said them use the starview
    servers

    What was this shop, a fortune teller...?

    Now I'm not saying VM are going to ignore the commercial c/s services running, but one thing I would say is that Sky have always been far ahead of VM when it comes to preventing unauthorised access and their CAS is being shared all over Europe...

    It is now known that some broadcasters have been using fake control words to send the card serial number over a c/s in order to lock that card/subscriber down...

    Will VM be doing the same? Who knows, certainly not some back street shop up north
