We handled the Openbox S9 and S10's.  We had issues with the Quality of the S10 units having bad thermosistor's and it would blow when trying to run a motor and had to replace the part in about 100 of them and the company in China would not offer any help with the costs of the repairs.  I gave up on them after that.  They came in through US Customs.  So at that time, at least they had the proper documentation.

I am not sure of what other models they have had since then besides the V8 models which when I checked them, they were not licensed for doing Dolby, USB, HDMI and were not UL Listed.  One reason why they are sold for so cheap.

China is able to sell them through places like ebay or amazon and they do not go through US Customs or they would be confiscated.  If I were to order 10 cases, then they would go through US Customs and I would never see them or get my money back.

So not sure if this is answering your question, as a lot of these cheap units are not clones, they are just not legally licensed for sell in the US.  The Chinese companies steal the technology and build them and then sell them.  

Some companies in China are very good at Stealing Technology and also taking a legally manufactured piece of equipment and making it look like the original and then use cheaper parts and sell them like the real thing.

You don't have to buy from me, but in my opinion, best to try and buy from a source that you know something about that at least tries to work with our US rules and laws.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
