A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Has anyone used one of these on the last HD boxes with no RF ports ?

Do thet go wrong, or become insensitive to i/o commands, or is it more likely the HD box /overnight Sky upgrades that turn them off intermittently ? I have reset it before leaving, and changed a connector on the incoming lead but any advice would be useful.

Thanks in advance.

OpenBox X5 on a 1 meter motorized dish.
And now a 10 foot "C" band dish.

What I see is a missing power supply, 12 volts at 200 mA would be needed.

According to the blurb the unit is powered by the interface on the HD box, the separate power is required to drive a loft amplifier to other televisions running off RF2

Any other knowledge on reliability ?

I had one on my Sky Plus box for many years, never had a problem with it.

Have used many of them not had any real problems, just rebooting normally sorts them out.

I will return during the week to check elsewhere. The Sky box is behaving itself as far as signals and hard drive, and the terrestrial input is similarly stable.

They are not for the Sky+ boxes only the last of the Sky HD+ boxes with built in WiFi in place of the RF output modulator

Just a typo, I should have included the HD bit.
