    Would it be worth shelling out £70 on a MAG box from E-bay....when my LG SmartTv is working well.
    or is there a cheaper box what works well..?

    If your TV is wired to the modem i see no reason on shelling out the cash for the MAG box.

    Unless you want to subscribe to other portals in the future i'd stick with the tv and save the money.

    I've ran both on the MAG and Tv & i'm currenlty Running on Samsung Tv full time now.

    I chose this so i don't have to have the MAG plugged in 24/7 and save on the wire mess & electricty (not that much anyway haha)

    But if you travel or want to take it with you the MAG is handy to have

    Yes i am wired to my router..no probs with channels.
    I`ve read the channels are usually more stable with a box and also sorted into
    bouquets(hope i`ve spelt that right).
    I think i`ll stick with just the SmartTV at present but taking your box with you is a good option.
    Thanks for your input,i`ve found it useful.

    You can have channels sorted in groups if you replace "m3u" in your URL with "m3u_plus" like this:

    MAG 254
    Hello @jacksoft,

    I would suggest a MAG STB. The reason is simple:

    Pros:
    - Autoupdated List
    - Install / Setup and forget
    - Channelswitching is Superfast
    - Smooth Playback on working RapidIptv Channels :D
    - VOD has its own Portal and sorted by Lang.
    - MAC Address Protection provided by RapidIptv service

    Cons:
    - List only works with MAG STB
    - Another Remote
    - Price verys since there are clones out there... (Got mine from Amazon) ;)

    Have fun watching and streaming

    Val.

    None are working at the moment so be careful before sigfning up. I signed up Sunday and the service is not working. I had 10 mins online and nothing since. Been very difficult getting support.

    MAG 254
    Hello @jacksoft,

    I use my MAG 254 every day and I my self am very happy with that choice. :D

    The MAG is bound to the MAC Address like this you can have it with you and nobody else. It is not Location bound or IP bound!

    So you can be in France and another day in the US it does not matter. The only thing you will need is Fast Internet to enjoy IPTV Service.

    Best regards

    Val.

    Yes you can become a reseller since you can preconfigure MAG and give them to your costumers. Like this they dont need to get involved with the Technical part of the MAG. :D

    That is the reason why i like MAG allot - Install/Setup/Forget

    Best regards

    Val.

    Hallo Albavision

    You have the wrong portal.

    Portal 1 URL http://mag.rapidiptv.com/c/ (you only need 1 Portal)
    Ntp Server: ch.pool.ntp.org (TimeServer for Switzerland) de, fr, it, also aviable all countrys. use your country code. Example. de.pool.ntp.org for Germeny

    Gruss

    Hallo

    Ich habe alles so eingestellt und auch geprüft. Habe eine MAG 254,
    Als reseller sehe ich eine Orange verbindung aber leider bleibt die Mag 254 bei channels loaded stehen.

    was kann das sein?

    Hello
    I have everything set and tested. Have a MAG 254,
    As reseller I see an orange connection but unfortunately the Mag 254 stops in channels loaded.
    what could that be?
    I dont get any further...
