Depends on what you want to do!
 
There are plenty of linux boxes about, dreambox, vu, openbox and their clones.
 
You can pick up a decent dm800 clone for £150 from ebay

@ Steve
 
Cheers for your reply, much appreciated.
 
 
I am just looking for a receiver to work outside of the uk, where I am I can get a few Channels Sky News not BBC1 & 2, ITV, Ch4 ect but I  
can receive the red button Channels, I am using an Echostar  DBI-2110 2Ci Viaccess with a 1mtr dish, so I am looking for something on the  
same lines, I would liked to receive the major five channels but I think I need a least a 1:5mtr dish.

Are you in Spain by any chance? Wink
 
Any box should do the trick, the important bit will be how big is the dish?  
 
You're going to need at least a 1.5m dish to get a reasonable signal and a really good LNB on the end of it!
