    Morning all.

    Just got a Skybox F5 and am so impresssed with it that my thoughts are heading to replace my Sly Plus HD box with a real system.

    Having read through this section there appears to be a few candidates for the replacement. The Amiko Alien 2 appears to be a good system as well as a good price. The only thing I notice is that there does not appear to be Forum section for this machine. Is this because it is new or is it a subset of another machine?

    I would appreciate the considered opinions of others as to the merits or otherwise of the various candidates. Price is a concern! Support is also a concern. The ability for the new box to duplicate the Sly box is essential (PVR etc), the wife is not a techie. The ability to have the "functionality" for the F5 is of course essential.

    I am not a novice with computers, I am now quite expert on Linux servers etc or for that matter satellite, just stuck in the past! I still have my TM1000 somewhere! Got rid of my 1m dish way back when everything went black....

    Also is it time to look at 19E or 13E? Is it worth it?

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Jon

    Hello people, I have a vu+ solo2 best e2 box I've bought but one thing that lets it down is theirs no blind scan I've tried the app but dose not work. Could people recommend a good e2 machine with a good tuner and blind scan option.

    If your looking for a simple solution with good support go for the F5 (newest one is F5s now but remember it uses a different image compared to F5, don't think you will need to change it though)

    It's not a Linux box. OP wants Linux

    Hi all, i`m very new to this and bought a skybox F6 recently to try it out , it seems to work very well for what i need ....i am based in france, but initial setup wasn`t very easy due to lack of support. i would like to buy a second box and looking at either dreambox or vu solo , is one preferable over the other ? the interface on the skybox is not very good , ie menu , looking for an easy setup and easy updates.

    many thanks

    Personally i would go for the Solo2 (ORIGINAL) it is a Fantastic box and easy enough to set up if you know what you are doing

    the only thing that lets it down is that it only has 2 tuners

    Solo2 (orginal) is stable with loads of support - great performance with price on the high side - but worth it I would say for peace of mind with a rock solid performance

    Duo2 - is great with possibility of upgrading with plug and play tuners

    Gigablue quad + looks good and if it delivers what it says and is stable in performaing as advertised it will give you best performance with best price

    There are other receivers coming which look interesting like the MiracleBox

    it is certainly an interesting time with the amount of receivers arriving on the market along with the fact there may be some changes arriving on 28e sat scene/viewership. As the chinese proverb goes "may you live in interesting times"

    im using past weeks a wetek play and the possibility of having android and enigma2 is very good. altough the enigma2 images are not yet very well optimized.

    im testing an et7000 and the receiver is dam fast. im keepin it as my main receiver at home for now
