If you guys have seen or own a genuine VS Extreme, and look at this CLONE VS picture, U might say, "It's a faakin' carbon copy". Infact, it is very similar. The GENUNIE has only one screw on both sides. The CLONE has two screws on both sides. VIEWSAT RELEASED A FIX ON SEPT 6th (I think is), for better EPG and picture quality", but IT IS ALSO MEANT TO KILL THOSE CLONE RECEIVERS. Here is a site that sells a clone, Pls click the link for more info, regarding CLONES:
All clones have horizontal on/off switch in back and the remote control look for the following 4 bottons on the top from L to R:tv, aux, dvd, and stb. if they are 3 only or do not exist that way then it must be clone. Also open and inside you should see the card reader left top the clone does not have it.
