    I have just received my Openbox from Amazon and find the instruction manual very poor. I tried connecting via Ethernet to my homehub but no joy. I then looked at YouTube and there was a mention in Network settings screen to press the number 6 key 6 times then I get further options. My WiFi home hub does not appear. Do I need a USB WiFi dongle.
    Any help trying to set up much appreciated
    Thanks

    You need a connection to a dish for the openbox to be able to access any tv channels.
    The internet connection is only to unscramble any locked channels after you purchase a line.

    Didn't the words "satellite set top box" ring any bells? LOL
    We're here when you get sorted.
