While relocating the shipping department within our facility the shipping team spotted two shrink wrapped packages hidden away on the top of the 30 foot racks..... What could they be?

Twenty Twinhan Starbox USB Satellite Receivers are now sitting in behind my desk and need a home ASAP. A few of the gift boxes have cosmetic damage as they spent way too much time in the warehouse. The cardboard corners on a few of the gift boxes are banged up, but no damage to the contents. None of the gift boxes include the outdated software CD, but newer Twinhan drivers have been shared on this and many other forums.

Have we got a deal for you!

How about Free if you will pay a flat fee of only $14.50 for one, $18 for two or $20 for three units shipped to any continental US address? Please call our sales team and ask for the SatelliteGuys Special Deal on the Twinhan StarBox. Toll Free at 888-483-4673, Monday - Friday, 7:30am - 4pm, PT.

Sorry, no PMs or requests to hold them......... This offer is valid until all units are gone. We will post as soon as all 20 units are sold. Sold without support or warranty! Tested and confirmed to not be DOA.

Nice early Xmas present for the troops, so thanks Brian! - :up

None for me, though.
For anyone interested in my experiences with one, do an advanced search here on the forum. :)

I never had much happiness with the Twinhan DVBS viewing program, but the StarBox worked quite well with several other programs like mytheater.

Does TS Reader support the VP-7021 now? I know that four years ago, TSReader did not have the drivers.

BTW.... The model is the VP-7021 not the VP-7021a for searches.

Thanks Brian!

Great offer, Brian. I do have one question, is there a driver compatible with Windows 7 for these units?

I have read posts on several forums reporting use on the VP-7021 on Windows 7 64 bit OS. Needed to override the digital signature.

TSReader now has BDA drivers. The software may work with the Starbox, but I have not played around with these units for awhile. Might just keep a unit if TSReader works!

I ordered one. I'm thinking that this combined with a small laptop and the right software would make a signal meter with spectrum analyzer. Not as good as a real meter, but easier than hauling a tv and your set top box out to the dish.

:D Found a few more units. There are now 3 remaining.

Glad these could find good homes!

After I ordered I saw that I could of gotten a third unit for only $2 more in shipping charges. I then received an email stating that my two units had already been shipped. I love the fast shipping, but I didn't get a chance to call and change my order to 3 units. :)
