Orton HD X403p High-Definition Satellite Receiver with USB Recording Feature
Orton HD X403p High Definition Satellite Receiver: This set-top box looks similar to Openbox S10 but has better capabilities with 396MHz processor than an Openbox with 300MHz processor. The User Interface is different from Openbox but the software supports many features like upgrading files by USB etc. These Orton boxes are believed to be clones of the famous original Opticum Satellite Receiver sold in some European countries, but work fine especially under the Indian power conditions like erratic supplies or voltage fluctuations.

User-friendly menu in many languages, high sensitivity tuner, low power consumption are noticeable features. RJ 45 Ethernet LAN port, Software update by USB, RS-232C, 12V Out for connecting external devices like a TV etc are there with 1 Common Interface Module (CI slot) and Conax card reader.
USB Recording and Playback of files like MP3, JPEG, Movies is another atttractive feature.

Yes the older stock of Orton X403p still sold by retailers has this limitation of 10MsPs to 30MsPs symbol rate in QPSK, 8PSK modulations in DVB-S2.
The newer set of Orton X403p has a symbol rate support of 1.5 MsPs to 45MsPs in both QPSK, 8PSK modulations in DVB-S and S2.
Hence one needs to carefully confirm this specification with the seller before buying.

Good to hear that the new Orton X403p supports Symbol Rate from 1.5 MsPs to 45MsPs in both QPSK, 8PSK modulations in DVB-S and S2.

Yes Sathish, one of my friends Anil, a Cable Network Operator in India has bought a new Orton X403p for his personal use. His STB has the latest tuner with 1.5 to 45MsPs SR.

Also an Orton reseller in India, Mr.Joshi has confirmed that his Orton HD X403p box stock has no problem tuning symbol rates higher than 45MsPs by scanning Videocon d2h signals from ST1 at 88 degree East.

Thats good to know.

Then this box will be the better option as it has lot of good features compared to Openbox.
