Hi all,

Looking for a DVB-S STB - want something that is reasonably priced, works reliably & is easy to operate. Best "brand" one I can find is the Zinwell ZMX-7500B $199 @ DSE (seems to be $299 most other places).

Anyone got comments on this? - is it decent / any problems / limitations I should be aware of?

Any other recommendations? - I see there are several cheaper options on Trademe.

Thanks.

I'd recommend getting a Topfield. I haven't tried this particular model, but my old TF6400IR and a previous model I borrowed for a short time both had great picture, good EPG, etc.

No MHEG5 Freeview EPG though. Just my $0.02.
