If you can get your head around tuning into other tranponders then getting a non certfied FTA DVB-S box that requires you to intervene to scan for new freeview channels is a better option. Only other negative of a standard FTA box is that you dont get the MHEG EPG just EIT which is still pretty good.

Standard FTA boxs are readily available and in general depending on what box you get) much cheaper and better built than certified boxs.

There are plenty of options like here.
