Hi all
Had a technomate 5200 just the standard one on a motorised dish (90 with technomate motor)
Never used it since the narga thing changed as it did not have the ethernet connection.
now a mate of mine brought a openbox v8s and so did i which i stuck on my old sky dish, got some cline's to try etc which opened some channels up but the box seems to be very unreliable aand tbh the box is plop :D
want to go back to a much better set up with my motorised dish (if it still moves :p).
so was wondering if you nice fellas could steer me in the right direction.
thanks in advance.

If you liked your technomate have a look at the TM-5402 HD M3 or if you want something more to play with there are loads of technomate linux boxs.

Its a different manufacturer so menus will be different, cannot comment on epg as I dont have one but if you went of a linux box such as tm-nano-se or combo or the even newer nano-se m2 due out soon you can customize the box and you have a choice on epg's.

Which would be the better box for us. Can't find much about the up and coming one so is between the 5402 and the nano. Is the Linux boxes more customised then the 5402.

Gone to the pub!
Menu system on 5402 very similar to the old 5200.
Easy to use.
Linux if not used before can be a little daunting, matter of choice.
