Yes I bought it there. But my boards and components look totally different from the pictures above, as you can see in the pictures I attached. That made me wonder.

Upss cuantas copias, yo he trasteado con dos V8 super y parecen clones, pero como cuidarse de los imitadores, seguro no tardan los de Gt-media en meter en las actualizaciones firmwares mata clones.

Ok I think I possibly found out why you should be careful buying a copy V8 finder I was using it out at the dish and bumped the coax against the pole and the whole end came off ..it had worked fine till now ...I did notice battery was dying very fast but would last long enough for me do adjustments. I will attach pic note the f connector a bottom that was attached to tuner on board and two white connectors not one red..any how i had gotten it from amazon and felt they were reputable but I guess it's not their fault buyer beware right.../home/graham/Downloads/IMG_0692.JPG

Hola,
Tengo un Gt media v9, y con el firmware 310 me va bien. Le he comprado otro a un amigo y cuando instalo ese firmware , no veo todos los canales, ya me entiendes. y en vez de la fecha me pone none.
¿con que firmware puedo solucionar esto? o es un problema de hardware.
Muchas gracias.

I have exactly same finder that user "norrinraddhr" just posted. It comes with same font on top right screen that says "V8 Finder", too. I could not take it apart because it has "DVB" sticker on the right side. I would have to break the sticker to open it up and that would void my warranty or my chance to return it back to the seller. Also the barcode/serial number on the back is easily rubbed off after playing around it for few hours. I played around with it and was hooked up to LNB for 3.5 hours and the battery signal shows 3 out of 5 bars, so it should be good for 3,000 mAH battery.

I wonder if my finder is also a fake?

After two weeks of searching for original GTMEDIA V8 Satellite Finder finally a found one on ebay. There is many Freesat V8 Finder but I have noticed that GT models are different in specifications and additional have 16APSK/32APSK with how much memory they have. Many models from Freesat have this not in specifications or isn't mentioned, i don't know.

-Flash Memory 64Mb Serial Flash
DDR3 Memory 1Gb DDR3
-Demodulator:
Front end QPSK(S);QPSK,8PSK,16APSK,32APSK(S2)

Everything other seems to be identical.

A few months ago I bought one thinking that it was original freesat and now I see that it is a copy :oops: . I guess there's nothing I can do now. I bought it on AliExpress.

Recently we found some illegal sellers are selling copy of v8 finder, which is low quality and no support, in Ebay. These illegal sellses not just copy our product, they even print our website address http://www.freesat.cn in their product description as their technical support website. However, thanks for that, poeple who are cheated to buy these copy product have a chance to know genuine V8 finder.

Here we make a comparision between genuine V8 finder and fake v8 finder. If you have bought a copy V8 finder, I suggest you could ask for refund and I also suggest poeple who want to buy a V8 finder read this carefully before you make your purchase in case of being cheated.

Thanks, people now know the differences.

It has a tag saying "Meter" at the bottom and is an odd color so I think it is a fake.
