Tried to edit my post but didn't seem to work for some reason. Anyway was going to add, "Even if you can't wait the week or two for shipping, going price at Trademe seems about $160 including shipping (not surprising, I'll be tempted to enter the market myself if they're selling them at $300)."

Nil Einne:
RustyGonad: There absolutely nothing wrong with a Linux VM... Especially when its 12MB big, and uses under 64MB of Ram. Plus is alot cheaper than a Dreambox - let me think - none of the price... which has to be good... Thats nearly $300 of free beer, if you buy the cheap one.

Oscam is looking very very promising - might even get a working Windows version again... Someone just needs to make it speak New Zealand... It doesn't understand Rich and Creamy just yet...



While I'm not disagree a VM might be better in many cases, clone DM500s from Deal Extreme are like (NZ)$107 or so innit? Even if you get stuck with GST (unlikely), still only ~$120. Well when it goes up to 15% $123

If you know where I can get $300 of free beer for $120 do tell...


Off the back of a truck - same place everyone gets it from... Its clone beer, so its much cheaper, just like your clone Dreambox...

I could even take your total lack of a point even further - the only Genuine Dreambox on trademe right now:

So that means I get $1211 of beer, which is awesome.  I get even more smashed, while you get to hype up the price of clone POS DM's... If I keep going this way I might even be able to get me some chips and one of those ASB hookers...

But instead I'll just give up and keep wondering what your on about...
