    Yes its a nice STB I have one for a while now and it comes as a normal receiver, firmware is on the net todo an upgrade to nice specs.
    The 3G option I did not test sofar but the wifi option and VPN works fine.
    Its a plug and play HD receiver, seems they have aswell a cable HDbox Scorpion HD702pvr with 16 digit display with same specs as 801.
