    I'd like to get rid of sky and get a box and just pay the sub for 3/6/12 months etc, the ones you see being advertised by people.

    I see a lot of different boxes, v5, v8, openbox etc. Where can I find a definition of the different types and what they offer?

    Then, once I determine the best box to get, where do I learn how to set it up and get the subscription. Is there people on here who sell subs for these?

    Hi Dell777

    A openbox V8s is the simplest box to setup, single tuner no real features, very easy to use. If your not bothered for advanced features then this is a solid box, take a look at the section for Openbox V8s here: Openbox Satellite
    if you want a box with more features, record one channel while watching another etc etc then start with bee's great thread on Which box to buy here: http://www.techkings.org/general-satellite-discussion/77914-buyers-guide-best-box.html
    When you have the box you want and ready for a line then post your request here: http://www.techkings.org/general-sa...recommend-good-server-satellite-may-only.html

    This forum is full of answers for newbies so use the search feature to get answers to any questions you have :)
