    Pace Sky Digibox Model - BskyB 2500B (unboxed)

    Pioneer DVR DBRT210GBP Ondigital Box (boxed)

    been hunting through my loft and found these.

    Is there a market for them on Ebay, here or not.

    It seems a waste to throw them.

    Yes there is.

    The digiboxes tend to sell on Ebay at any price between £45-100+ depending on the make and model of the box.

    Have a browse on Ebay to see what I mean.

    Not so familiar with the Ondigital boxes, but I think they can be used with a FTA (Free-To-Air) card available free from the dear old BBC.


    Hope this helps

    The Pioneer box is completely usable as a Freeview box. No smart card is needed. Just plug it in and let it set itself up.

    Freeview boxes (new ones) go for GBP99 and up.

    Makro were selling new Pioneers a few months ago for GBP70+VAT (IIRC).

    Wish my loft was as interesting! All I'd find in mine is empty boxes and a christmas tree. :)

    The ondigital box is worth at least £35 on ebay, there's plenty selling for more.

    I bought a pace 2500 for £40 here a couple of weeks ago and you should get £30-40 for the "freeveiw"box (pioneer on-Digital) Save the hassle on Ebay and put them in the classifieds here or you could get silly money on Ebay ive seen Pace boxes going for £100+ but that was a while ago!!! Or you could set one up your bedroom for some more channels, I would use the pioneer as FTV channels are less watchable IMHO
