Broke down after just over 2 years of normal use. A capacitor of la and also a voltage regulator so now it's dead and lit only by a red diode when I start it. Regulator is very difficult to find. So ordered from ebay so I hope it solves the problem. And it's not just me who had problems
Today, I would not buy this. One expects it to last a bit longer when it cost just over 3000: -
This box is very good and really it's just little things you might consider before buying and nothing is certain that one needs to have problems.
-According to rumor there might be heat problem that makes capacitors breaks down. Whether this is common or consistent OHT I do not know.
-If a tuner breaks it's "tough shit" because they are firmly installed in the motherboard.
Incidentally, a very potent machine and additionally completely "dreamboxkompatibel" which means that you can run the same image in this box and its Dreambox (if available from the "producer"). Thus avoid the missus complaining that she "did not recognize themselves"
Cons? This type of cleaning is "difficult" for the family "Smith" who can not understand the things that have with electronics and technology to do.
Very good box, has had a HD910 and a ET9000 before and this is better, play mkv files without complaining, even them with high bitrate. Run even those partnerbox (streamer to it from another enigma2 receiver) and it works just fine. The picture is not quite as good as directly from the satellite but quite ok. SD and HD works great.
The only small minus is that it has a fan in itself but it is very quiet and you cut off the grid behind the fan makes it even quieter.
Had a Vantage 8000HD before that la after 3 years. This is better for the most part, only the scaler that does not feel as good (subjective opinion!). One should have computer skills if they want to use the box to the max.
Run Bra on it.
Hell yes! So incredibly good! A little pottering in the beginning but it worked out after a few hours of googling and key spirit.
