Comments like that are not going to help you.
Read up then come back with more specific questions.

ok then, what is the most technically advanced receiver?
the one with the most features
the one that is most programmable
the one that is the fastest
the one that comes with nearly everything built in

Hmm,. sounds a bit Tolopsian to me. ;)

I stand by what I said in the other thread, there is no such thing as "the best", they all have different features and different people will prefer different boxes for different reasons, also, most people will probably have only tried one type of box, at the most two. Do some reading, decide what you want out of the box in the first place, blanket questions will only receive vague answers.

PS. Schoolboy attitude will not get you very far on this forum and similarly in life . ;)

PPS. If you want to know which has the fastest processor look at the individual specs, they are all pretty similar with capability, as they all use Linux as a base.

Isn't that a little like putting the cart before the horse?

What's the ebay link and we'll have a look for you. ;)

It's a great box if you want to watch Cable, otherwise get a satellite model.

Excellent for cable TV, but no good whatsoever for satellite.

It's OK, but bear in mind you can get a brand new one for £20 more.
