    Looking to buy an openbox s9

    Hi Guys and gals , my first post on this forum

    My sky uk subscription ended yesterday , i cancelled it due to the continued rising cost

    I have been looking on fleabay uk for a hd receiver which can also do a bit more

    It seems the price of the s9 is down to 80 delivered . My budget was around 100 so is the box i should go for or is there a better alternative ?

    I have never used a linux system either on pc or box so im a complete novice at this but i can read and learn . If anyone can point me in the right direction of a complete novice guide i would really appreciate that

    Any comments or suggestions will also be greatfully received

    Many thanks

    Blade a better box but more than 100. its also only got a now and next guide but does play .avi and .mkv. other than that I don't see much diff. few friends got the openbox and have no probs. Good price at 80 now as well.

    go for the openbox its an excellent box to plug and play there is a guide on here at the top of the section all you need to watch football is a cline which can be entered using the remote or by memory stick from the usb port

    Re: Looking to buy an openbox s9

    Hi

    For the price openbox is gr8 value for money, cant go wrong for 80 and hd as well.

    Epg is naff but other than that good for a cheap end box and easy to setup, clines is easy to input via usb as pointed out above.

    Regards

    Thank you , so would you all think the openbox s9 is better than the technomate TM600 ?

    Im trying to decide between the 2 , the epg seems better on the technomate

    I'm guessing that there are pluses and minuses on either side.

    Just one other aspect to consider is that the OpenboxS9 has HDMI where as the Technomate does not.
