    Thanks for the guide. How is this different from Plex Server (which is free)?

    Hi MrSpock,

    Plex is a very nice project... But in fact it's not done for a remote access (remote network) like VODOBOX.
    It's work but client HMI is too heavy in low WiFi and in this case, loading take a time.

    And the biggest difference is :
    - VODOBOX => Live TV stream (DVB-T, DVB-S, Dreambox, webcam...), recorded stream and movies.
    - Plex => Movies or recorded stream

    Two exemple of remote access :
    - Last week I have install VODOBOX to my sister in Spain + GTVBox stick (and accessory USB to RJ45).
    And I give her access to my VODOBOX sever in France.
    Now she can watch French TV in Spain as she was in France. :)

    - I have also use my GTVBox and VODOBOX in my Father house to watch Football because he didn't have Football channel (I have it at home).

    It is practical and work also on Android tablet/mobile ! I'll use it when I'll be in holidays... To follow some events or movies.


    have a good day !

    This technology is similar to VOIP telephone adapters, Amazon.com: OBi110 Voice Service Bridge and VoIP Telephone Adapter: Electronics where you have one device in Germany and one device in Sri Lanka, and can contact the device in Germany while you are in Sri Lanka to make local phone calls in Germany.

    Sounds like this VodoBox has potential for use with Google TV for viewing programming in other countries without VPN or DNS workarounds.

    I sent 10 Euros ($13 CAD) via PayPal and I have not received any e-mail link yet. It's late at night in France - do I have to wait 'til morning in Canada?

    Update: I got an email a couple of hours later, which I answered, then after another hour or two I received an email with the link and some keys and codes.

    These guys are very automated, and very pprotective of their baby.
