5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little Receiver, 15 Dec 2013
For the money, these are cracking little boxes......Can be used as a free to air receiver or is capable to de-scrambling encrypted services with the correct subscriptions.

Supports single or multiple satellites (if you have a mortorised dish)

I find the video output is excellent, Great 1080P HD output.

The new remotes are more responsive and have a nicer feel

Can also act as a media player or a PVR by plugging in an external drive ..

Is being used on the Astra Uk Sat - The EPG is very limited - This isnt a a fault, just not built with that in mind but for the money, a great little item

Had one of these for a while now after being sick of having to carry around 2 phones.

Running on Android 2.3, not yet found a custom ROM to upgrade, not sure if there is one.

Whilst it does ok, I find the processing power struggles to run the phone compared to a one of the mainstream Android phones.

I do find the texting and typing difficult as the responsiveness of the touchscreen isnt great and compared to my Iphone that i got rid of, i find that very annoying.

Again, down the processing power, Internet performance I find is poor. Daughter has a Samsung android on the same network and the there is a big difference in performance using… Read more
