Please Note that it is Satellite TV Set-Top Box and you can view any Free To Air channels on this box. It is not a FreeView box. Please also note it is genuine box manufactured by Sk*Box and it will only support genuine F5S firmware and programmes but to make it different some distinguishing features are added which make it look different from F5S e.g. start up screen colour (white) and name (OpenBox), display panel light (green) colour and remote small size (old style).
Please also note that updating/upgrading channel list or firmware process s very simple but also require extra care. every time you put a USB into the box, and upgrade the firmware or channel list, you will be very lucky to come out with the box still working. So you might be facing a bunch of issues, your Skybox keeps restarting, it says “LOAD” and doesn’t switch on properly, it basically is not working. And to fix the box you need to re-flash it and you can find out the whole procedure and tools required by visiting the link below.
But we would like to clarify any such problems occurred due to or during update/upgrade/modification of the box are not covered under warranty and product description because it is buyer's responsibility to make sure he is following a correct procedure and is doing it on his own risk. But if you are unable to fix it yourself we are more than happy to fix it for you at no cost but postage cost will be paid by the buyer as procedure went wrong by the buyer.
Also any physical problem occurs after 60 days of purchase we will replace the motherboard for free as it is under 24 months warranty (if damage is not caused intentionally or result of misuse) buyer will be responsible for sending the faulty item to us for repairs.
Please Note that you may experience No Video and an error "Scrambled" on few channels you might be able to get audio and YouTube also not working. SkBox has just released a fix on their website skybox.cc
Please click below to download the fix and upload into your box via usb memory stick
Please click on the YouTube link below to view a video showing how to do it.
