I could not find any valuable and fair information about these desi IPTV  boxes on internet. i am a owner of JAdoo Tv and Shava Tv...and i also know people who use Jalva Tv....i hope my article will help you buy the one that you need most.

Jadoo Tv (1 or 2)
------------------------------
Jadoo has stopped support for Jadoo 1 & 2. its for those who dont care about LIVE tv and like on-demand stuff only...jadoo tv has alot of on-demand dramas and movies. oh and cricket is also available, but no LIVE good channels.

Jadoo Tv 3

It has some nice on-demand stuff, and few live channels. I tried Hum Tv, Express News and few other news channels. Does not have GEO, ARY and does not have new Movies

Jadoo Tv 4

Lastest Jadoo tv to date, it has new air remote (you can use your fingers on remote to move around menus), option to install 3rd party apps (netflix etc). on-demand and live content is pretty similar to jadoo tv 3. 

Shava Tv
--------------------------------
Built specialty for Desi Pakistani community...it has alot of Live Desi Pakistani channels and few Indians also. on-demand content for shava tv is very poor and cant even come close to jadoo. one more nice feature Shava has is...you can record programs (you have to buy Hard Drive). They also keep adding new movies. Shava Tv is less stable compared to jadoo... in terms of speed & support.

Jalva Tv
---------------------------------
it is almost same as Shava, however does not have recording feature...rumors had it that jalva is about to change its name to BTV...which means something fishy is going on and i dont know for how long this box will stay in business.

on-demand suff includes movies, dramas,songs etc...and if this is what you need then get Jadoo...however jadoo is not posting content like it used to..could take days for new songs/movies to get updated. shava is for paki Live channels only..jalva I dont know for how long it can stay in market.

if you want to buy them then try not to buy online...online prices are pretty expensive...if you want to buy it then i would recommend you to buy from local stores...ask me if you need help.

Shava & Jadoo around $250,  BTV is Around $280..and jalva is around $350.

Did anyone tried any other box? or does anyone have their own opinion? then please share below.

At the end of the day...al these boxes are NOT really legal or official devices...so buy it at your own risk.

I will show you today how to create a ASP.NET Captcha control without using any HTTP HANDELRS or what so ever. you can easily plug it into your web pages.

All you need to do is Create a ASPX page, that ASPX page will have a content type of image/jpeg, then within the code-behind file of that asp page we will be using system.drawing namespace to create a dynamic image.

System will generate 2 Random numbers, and then it will store the result of these 2 numbers into a Session Variable.

For Example

a = 2 + 3 (where 2 and 3 are 2 random numbers)

Session("Answer") = 5

then we will create a image using System.drawing namespace with the text " 2+ 5 = " within it.
We will store the result into a session variable, so later on our webpage we can use this session variable to compare with what user types.

Lets see the code of Captcha.aspx:

Imports System.Drawing

Partial Class Captcha
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

 

    Private Sub returnNumer()

        Dim num1 As New Random
        Dim num2 As New Random

        Dim numQ1 As Integer
        Dim numQ2 As Integer
        Dim QString As String


        numQ1 = num1.Next(10, 15)
        numQ2 = num1.Next(17, 31)

 

        QString = numQ1.ToString + " + " + numQ2.ToString + " = "
        Session("answer") = numQ1 + numQ2


        Dim bitmap As New Bitmap(85, 35)
        Dim Grfx As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bitmap)
        Dim font As New Font("Arial", 18, FontStyle.Bold, GraphicsUnit.Pixel)
        Dim Rect As New Rectangle(0, 0, 100, 50)

        Grfx.FillRectangle(Brushes.Brown, Rect)
        Grfx.DrawRectangle(Pens.PeachPuff, Rect) ' Border
        Grfx.DrawString(QString, font, Brushes.Azure, 0, 0)

 


        Response.ContentType = "Image/jpeg"
        bitmap.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg)


        bitmap.Dispose()
        Grfx.Dispose()

 

    End Sub

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load


        Call Me.returnNumer()

    End Sub


End Class

 

So the Page_Load event Generates an Image.

 

now we can use this Page within any aspx page for verification. For Example here is form2.aspx

now you can create a TextBox, have users enter some text into it, and then create a ANSWER button, upon clicking of ANSWER button compare the value of textbox with the Session variable Session("answer"), if both are same then Verification passed.

if you have any questions, please reply to this post.

Thanks for reading

So now Jadoo Tv launched Jadoo3? I mean are you kidding me...really. enough is enough, somebody needs to put an end on this non sense worthless box, they only have 1 or 2 GOOD Live channels which are available in all versions of Jadoo Tv (1 & 2). They need to know Jadoo Tv is not APPLE iPhone, its a garbage box, so releasing new versions means NOTHING. They just want your money with same features and channels crap.


Jadoo tv channel list - About Jadoo TV

Update: As most of you know, As of March 19,2011 mostly all content providers issued a lawsuit against Jadoo tv & almost all the channels have been removed. please DO NOT BUY JADOO TV OR JALVA TV or any other IPTV box, they all are ILLEGAL. In order to help community if you know any working channels for jadoo tv then please share them under Working Jadoo Tv Channels section. Please check back for latest updates.
 
** UPDATE **
 
Jadoo Tv is back with Jadoo tv 3 & Jadoo Tv 4, however we cant promise about the list of channels they have.
 
Let me start by saying, jadoo tv is a useless device. you will not see any Pay Per View's or premium channels by buying this device. you can watch few Indian channels on it (not all of them), with poor quality and they go up and down constantly with allot of buffering. This product is totally overpriced. if it was around $20 then it’s worth buying (maybe).
 
How to Watch Free TV
 
if you just want to watch few channels online, then you don’t need this device, you can watch Indian channels live on many websites c. or just Google it, you will see 100z of sites. You can also visit on demand section on this website to watch dramas.
 
How Jadoo Tv Works
 
Basically it uses your internet connection, so you must have a Fast Internet ISP. then it connects itself to its server(which streams channels) and streams them for you, which is same as if you were watching these channels on your computer. You can buy yourself a PS3 and have Ps3 stream internet for you (at least you getting a blu-ray player and gaming console for this price).
 
You are also running into a risk where a device connects itself to internet, and your computers IP address could be saved and reported back to legal authorities. My advice is to stay away from this device, its overpriced, it's not 100% legal, it lags alot and offers only few useless channels.
 
I can’t really provide a list of 100% valid channels, since every other day they are been taking down (upon legal notice). Sooner or later all channels will disappear from their server.

UPDATE: MOST SOUTH ASIAN CHANNELS ARE DOWN ON JADOO TV. THEY ARE BEEN SUED., they are trying to find more illegal ways to stream channels on their device... which i am sure will last for another couple of weeks. please save your money.
