My new sat box arrived today. It is a tiny thing, much smaller than any other I have seen. Everything works great and the quality is excellent. All the bells and whistles are there. I have to say, not bad for $25, and much better than anything I could have found locally. The only question is how long it stays this way, and only time will tell. My previous experiences with cheap Chinese boxes has been that they either die or start developing quirks after a period of time. It will be interesting to see how this one does, but for $25 I don't think I can go wrong.

- Does the EPG work fine for the Full 7 Days & is it a Vertical  or Horizontal scrolling EPG?

 

- Have you tried the sat box out on Optus D2 for any 16apsk feeds that occasional show up?.

No EPG but I don't expect that on a non-Freeview receiver. I also haven't looked for any feeds. I mainly use the sat box to watch Dutch BVN and some news sites and just to see what is happening from time to time. At the moment I am watching the tennis in Melbourne on a East European channel on Intelsat19, but most of my viewing is by streaming these days. I just wanted the sat box in case there was something I might actually want to watch.
