Welcome mate .
You best buy the Genuine Dm800HD as clone boxes dont and wont ever operate anywhere near as good as a genuine dm800hd that goes without saying
Go with a genuine too much money to risk on a dodgy clone

i love forums with experts on hand!!
I am an IT expert but a complete sat newb!!! i live in tech forums normally! lol

Ok, Barney2222 THANK YOU!
but, I'm in UK....who actually sells the genuine ones? i saw a bloke in evesham listed by Dream.de as an authorised seller...surley theres more? he's a bit expensive...
even if you could recommend a 'good' installer/supplier that would be great!

Its a tough one. I too am undecided whether a clone is worth the "risk".
Quite happy to buy a clone DM500 box, still unsure with the DM800.

Personally i would go for the Clone.

Reasons are as following:

1. Much Cheaper to buy

2. If your new to Dmz not a big risk

3. Usually all problems to the orignal are improved on clones

4. As long as you dont run gemini images you wont have a problem.

i am using a clone now for 3 months and i must say in the beginning it was quite nagging because i didnt know that i have to look up for the bootloader version and that i must install cardreader and tuner driver additionally. but after i solved the first problems and got my gemini image working on it i must say im happy that i bought a clone 250 euro and not a genuine for 400 euro. ok there s the heat problem, but i heard that the genuine boxes have that too, and for a skilled technician like me it was not a problem to install a good working cooling system into the box, there are enough 12v and 5v sockets inside the box to use for it.

so my suggestion: if youre a noob to all that stuff, buy a genuine, if you know what ya doin, and i guess you do because you re buyin a linux receiver, then go for the china box, its just so much money yo gonna save.

i would say get a clone. i got mine over a month ago and im running the latest nabilosat image on it too. no problems at all. for half the price of a genuine box it was a no brainer... only cost me 215 delivered to the uk.

Dreambox Clones

the best bit is the patched images; Patched images Dreambox Clones

they offer the latest patched images on their site and even better is the fact that you can request images to be patched by them too. i would get two clones rather than one genuine box.

If you are going to buy a genuine box, as I did, you can get one from Willkommen im HM Sat Shop / Versand / Vertrieb / Onlineshop. They are manufactured in Germany. Postage is 16EUR. Delivery is quite fast. My DM600 was 160 / 200EUR at the time.

Ok, as ive been seeing lots of clones lately i would take a clone with no fear at all. Last ones even have that little cooler thingie on the chipset that will become anoying in a month after it fills with dust so your DM800 will sound like a remote controled aeroplane ready to take of from the TV rack. But it would be stupid to just discard the original right away, coz if everyone does that there would be no clone either. So lets just say i would get an original, if i could afford it
