    Hoping for some good advice my box went dead the other day, the lights flash on the lan cable but no numbers on the front or LED's any advice please

    You have two options

    1. Try to recover it with the RS232 serial cable method. (may work may and may not)

    2. Or just buy a v9s they are very cheap about 35 ish, you get new remote, new box, works well. Saves you the hassle

    I advise to steer clear of the V9s at present because there seems to be a lack of support, some very bad clones appearing and very few full box instructions---either stick with and take your chance with an openbox V8s or branch out and try other well recommended boxes but remember---it's your discision and your money plus the limit of your technical knowhow.
