    Hi guys, I just wondered if anyone can recommend a good supplier with good after sales service.

    A few weeks ago I bought a ZGemma H5, managed to get it going but not overly impressed with its performance. No problem, I put it in the bedroom and bought a Technomate Twin 4K. This box turned out to be faulty. But unlike when I buy stuff from M&S or John Lewis, when I returned this defective product I have to wait to see if they can find the same fault I found.

    It's a bit like the headteacher telling my kid has does something bad at school, but before I take disciplinary action, I wait..... just to see if she behaves in the same manner at home. is it me or does this seem wrong?

    Where's the best place to do business?

    There's a few suppliers about, try Googling the brand of reciever your after.
    I know Amaz0n sell a few different brands, being a big company I wouldn't of thought there would be any issues with them.

    Very fast an so far reliable, I also have the previous model witch has run flawlessly since new.
    Im running twin Cable at the moment but I've bought a sat tuner to fit as I don't record much.

    Sounds promising, I'll certainly consider it.
