    New to this so bare with me.
    I know people that have bought an open box software that gets you Sky TV but they say you need a satellite dish.
    I don't have a dish so I'm looking to see if anyone knows a virgin box you can get that allows you to get sky without a dish.
    Cheers.

    If you have VM broadband you can buy a cable box
    and a line from a cable server and you basically get the same
    results as a sat box but with glorious HD :yes!:

    If you mean Virgin Media cable instead of satellite? Then yes! A little research of this forum will teach you everything you need to know about cable boxes and how to get setup.

    Zgemma H2H has a sat tuner and a cable tuner
    so if you are only using the cable tuner personally
    I would go for the Miraclebox mini hybrid flashed with Openvix.

    Vu+ solo V2 has two cable tuners so that would allow you to record one program
    and watch another.

    But it all usually comes down to what your budget is.

    £90, picture quality is fantastic.

    You need a live cable feed into the house and any internet provider.

    Most use a VM broadband only package to ensure your feed isn't cut off at the box in the street.
