you could try JSAT tv ( ask for John )
Is there any dealers for DM500 in Bangkok. I am reaching on 18th March. Kindly PM me the address and price so I can arrange and pick it up.
The reason : it is run by Jon Clarke the New Zealand expat who charges near New Zealand prices. He is indeed the nUmber 1 expert in Thailand but at nearly 30 dollars (800 baht) an hour his Co's service charges are way over the top by Thai pricing standards . The average wage in Bangkok is below seven dollars or 200 baht A DAY ! Most Thais simply cannot afford his charges.
Try Sat thai on www.satthai.tv or Bangkok Cable tv on www.bkkcabletv.com. Alternatively try www.mastersatcom.com or www.siamdst.com.
As they say in Cockney slang ...you pays your money and takes your choice !
Bro. Rixbel , I bought my Dm from satthai and well they have good service ( really appreciate the help from Sir C-Band ) .

As for your little cockney slang,, ''you pays your money and takes your choice " it should be "takes your chance" But please don't let a little alteration get in the way of a good story. But the other saying might be more applicable,, "pay Peanuts, get Monkeys"
And if you think he's expensive, Please don't ever attempt to get into the world of "High-end Audio" you might care to peruse these web sites,,

Following C-band advice, I was thinking of taking the chance with Jsat but am waiting for some more advices. I am still wary of Satthai(whether it's the same old guy) since my last trip to Bangkok...they just won't answer the phone.
What i need to know from you, Bassett, is whether you recommend the dealers mentioned above. Since I am not based in Thailand, Most of the services offered by them(even installation) may not be necessary.
so what do you say?
But as your not in Thailand, you could try Jim in Taiwan [ird*to2 enginner] a simply PM will find him, and his prices are also reasonable
Actually your very wise avoiding the Phuket based satthai or phuketsatellite or E-direct, or whatever else he calls himself these days.
On the other hand the satthai company in Bangkok, has no connection with our SHONKY friend in Phuket

I know John Clarke ( JSAT tv ) personally. His wife Anne is responsible for pricing ( i think ) .
John's honest and a bit of a legend with the dreambox . There ain't much he doesn't know about them ( he's doing some awesome stuff with them )
Just wish I'd documented half the stuff he showed me.
Hi C-Band ,
I'm from good old kiwi land NZ ( caught up with John and Anne while they were visiting his parents over the new year ) .
We got DM500S clone dreambox selling here between ($200 - $230 )
how much they go for over there ?
Cheapest sat shop in Thailand.
Mentioned by RDI member joesoap on numerous ocassions as its his local shop in Mae Sai.
Have fta boxes from less than US$20 ! Give them a call.
