Pace 1000 Sky Box & Satellite Finder


Active Member
Hi Folks

I've recently purchased a PACE 1000 SKY MINIBOX specifically to use in my caravan with a freesat card.

The Pace box wont be connected in between trips. I've heard in the past that by not having it connected can be detrimental to the box

Has anyone come across this before ??

Does anyone else leave there boxes unconnected for long periods, if so have you had any problems ??

Finally ... my old satellite finder that i got off ebay (cost about £4) doesnt seem to be working (was never very successful to be honest) ... so looking to upgrade to a better one .... I see the SLX satellite finder seems popular & slightly more at around £10 ... i also notice that maxview do a very similar one for £28, yet they all look the same ... does anyone know if they are indeed better quality or is it the Maxview "name" thats putting the extra pounds on ???

Are there any other reasonable priced alternatives ??

Any feedback appreciated
