We’ve been big fans of TBS’s previous two set-top USB DVB S2 TV Qbox for their efforts for both Freesat and Freeview HD. With the new release of the fourth generation of TBS Qbox series, we really were surprised by news of this updated CI TV Qbox. It not only enables you to watch and record Freesat HD content directly on a Windows 7 PC, but also allows work as a encrypted receiver and insert the smart card smoothly.
The TBS Qbox CI is another break-though in digital hd reorder industries. It does contain the crucial DVB-S2 receiver and support CAM slot. With the inhibition of Qbox3, it also can support transponders blind scan. Therefore, in order to view satellite TV on PC, you just add a satellite connection and plug into your computer via USB and install the supplied drivers. You’ll be able to access the same channels that are available on Freesat, but you won’t have access to its EPG.
As well as being able to time shift your satellite programmers the package also includes EVE v2 software for editing your shows, if you’re into that sort of thing. With the remote control attached in the package, you can enjoy more convenience when using. TBS said that this TBS Qbox CI works seamlessly with Windows Media Center under Windows 7, so if you’re putting together a media PC this could be an ideal solution. It also supports DVBDream, DVBViewer, DVBlogic, ProgDVB, Skynet, TSreader.
