    What is Spiderbox

    Out of curiosity, what exactly is Spiderbox? And what do I get if I were to buy?

    It's a HDTV satellite box with a lot of limitations.

    You will not get free Sky TV on it, if that's what you are really asking.

    It can read a card and pvr works so not as limited as some so called better boxes I believe.

    Re: What is Spiderbox

    Not really had a play with a spiderbox or any other darkman product...dont particularly care about the politics of it all...spider seems to be getting some decent feedback though seems a good product for it's price range.
    Personally not for me though...I agree, linux side of boxes is more appealing Openbox/solomend/skybox is looking good at the minute..regular firmwares being released...then again thats a closed source box as well..even though it is linux...might buy one next I need a client box to play with, cant really go wrong with 100 quid for a Basic HD CCAM compatible reciever with PVR.

    Yeah tbh ive not heard many bad things about the spiderbox other than the cccam issues.

    But if you have a problem and post about it on his forums you get banned lol.

    yup agree the attitude on that forum is crap...if you complain...they accuse you of being thick and not knowing what your doing...if you continue to persist they delete your posts and bann you...lol
    Then again, it's getting a bit like that on certain sections here as well, posts and threads mysteriously disapearing if they contain any negative comments..even if theyre relvant and true....

    ccam is a bit hit and miss on it
    newcamd is spot on
