    Been using an openbox vx2 for a few months and for the most part has been ok. Been a bit of spillage from one of the rugrats and now it's gone bang. No power, no lights, smoke coming out of it etc etc.
    So after a new box. Would I be just better getting another one or are there any recommendations for a different box? Could spend around £75 on one,and people have been saying the Mecool M8S Pro L is goodbut,just not sure if I want to spend that much yet as I still use my Virgin CS sub 90% of the time. Apart from terrarium and morpheus it's not really used for much more.
    Thanks.

    A lot of people seem to rate the formuler z7+ at the moment which is a bit above what you want to pay.Never rated openbox really or amazon fire sticks are pretty good and will be fine for what you need it for.

    Isn't it just a standard android box with stbemu loaded on, or am I missing something here?

    Fair enough, it's definitely a good option for the price and for the OP intentions.

    If still using vm Cs then an android box wouldn't be any good but as mentioned the formula z7+ but with the amount your will to spend is out of budget limit what about a zgemma H3.2TC for vm Cs and a firestick for the others like terrium and morpheus

    I have a zgemma H2 for the virmin cs.
    The Android box is for running an IPTV sub and some other apps.
    I know I can run the IPTV through the zgemma but I can't run terrarium/Morpheus through it hence the need for a cheapish Android box.

    On the Zgemma you have the option of using IPTV player and TS media for movies and tv shows and they work well.
