Clone or no Clone? - 31-July-2009, 19:33

I am looking at buying a Dreambox and have read many contradictions on whether the clones work or not. Particularly that the Gemini image puts a 'time bomb' into the box. I have contacted a number of the internet sellers and all replied fairly quickly. They had a common response - their boxes are indeed clones and they are built to a robust specification, have better receivers than the original DM500's and will work with the Gemini images. Now you will probably say that they would say thay, wouldn't they?? Surely they wouldn't want to put up with constant box failures etc.. and complaints.
There are as many people saying they have clones and are happy with them as there are people saying avoid them. So....what to do?? I have looked at the official Dreambox site and their replacement for the 500 series is very expensive - do you truly get what you pay for? I recently had a problem with my Sony Vaio Media Centre PC and couldn't find anyone to repair it here. I stripped it down myself and couldn't find anything not made in China!

Whatever one person says on any forum will probably generate several other people saying the opposite...just like ?? I have had a clone Dm500s for about a month now, i run it with gemini 4.2 and Cccam. Mine is ok, i also think yours will be ok as well. Remember that there are some very experienced satellite users out there who will give you a very unbiased view on this subject...i also suggest that you buy a Dm500s..its cheap and cheerful.

If you want a good value dm500 clone the Eagle Box has a good track record and they are cheaper than most clones.. I've been running mine for a year now and am very happy.. You can use the eagle image or just treat them as a dm500 and run any image.. Although I would never trust the gemini image after the 'time bomb' thing

if you're buying a dm500, a clone is what you're going to get regardless of what you choose to buy

i don't think you'll find a genuine one since the whole market is selling clones
some might say the truth and some might lie about it
