Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I meant WITHOUT dvb-t (I updated the post). I am in Auckland too.  How much are you willing to pay?  I think I have the box but not 100% sure.  Definitely have the remote though and have a USB stick in it for live pause which you can have.

Ok great, what part of Auckland would the pick up be? If you are near the city I could pick up today?

 

Hmm looking on Trademe they are in the vicinity of $20-40 so somewhere in that vicinity. I have a few on Trademe I am attempting to get....

I did a survey circa November last year that strongly hinted at Igloo's demise. Igloo no longer have the set top boxes for sale on the website. I am certain it is toast and will be gone before years end.

The Igloo Facebook page shows a sad story with regards to visitor posts

I have one in Auckland. Would take a few days to unregister/check it out that it still works.

 

Had it since day 1 and its had about 10 mins of usage.
