looking at £70 quid on ebay, about right?

 

do you still need a 'gift card' type thing like the zgemma boxes?

 

edit: just watched a few videos, they look the business

Openbox via satelitte

 

Magbox via internet

 

Mag can get HD

Is it easy to use like an epg or is it like kodi?

Have a Mag254 with IPTV - pay £25 for 3 months and paid around £60 for the box from Amazon.

100's of channels, 100's of films, live football, naughty channels the lot.

Miles better than KODI as you get an EPG and don't have to hunt.

 

Was blocked by Sky on Saturday though for the Joshua fight - although is fine now.

 

Got an email for the bloke we get the IPTV off if anyone wants it? Been using it for about 12 months - spot on.

Hi,

you get all the Sky HD and BT HD channels, plus some of the other sports channels in HD

 

You get a menu showing the selection of 'channels' where you can scroll up and down to select, i.e. Entertainment, UK Sports, All Sports, etc. At the bottom there is a menu for TV/Movies/Settings etc.

 

Choose a channel and you scroll through the programs with an in screen preview.

I have Virgin 200mbs at home, and unsurprisingly it works well.

In Menorca we have Wi-Fi running at around 7 to 10mbs and 98% of the time it works well - occasional freezing.

 

You can tweak the buffer size etc. and it helps.

 

Overall we are very pleased with it. Takes an ethernet cable or a wireless dongle. Has a USB port so you can play your own stuff direct from USB.

 

The supplier we use allows catch-up on the 'main' channels - and I THINK you can record to USB but never really tried.

Most of the Costa's use this after they moved the Astra satellite.

Got mine delivered today.

 

Pretty impressed so far but the guy I got mine off only does about 1,000 channels and none of that naughty stuff Drew mentioned. Some do over 7,000 (Iknow, I know).

 

Probably fire this over to my lad and get a fresh one with a bit more, erm, variety.

 

£115 off ebay with 12 months subs I paid.

 

Drew, can you PM those details to me mate. Cheers.
