As title. It must be a none E2 receiver seeing as ever time I have the misfortune of having to use an E2 based box I have the irrational urge to take the receiver outside and beat the sh1t out of it with a very large lump hammer..... Multistream would be nice just so I can look at everything available.

Ive got a E2 Mutant HD51 which lasted in use about a month before I switched it off and slung it into a cupboard in disgust. Plus the TM5403 whicxh is a nice sensitive receiver but the firmware is pretty ropey now and it has the well known annoying habit of putting loads of dead transponders into the searches on certain satellites (even without doing a blind search - a normal frequency scan is enough to repopulate the database with a load of irrelevant crap.)

Very easy to set up,
The tuner is as sensitive as my TM6902HD with a very sensitive tuner,
I have the SX88 with no sound on French multi streams @ 5 west & the SX88+ that has sound on French Multi streams,

I have tried E2 receivers but not for me :eek: so I sent mine back for a refund & set up a TM5302HD in it's place :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

What other features would you want ?

Hard drive ?
twin tuner ?
DVB-C/T ?

If not the openbox V9S has kept two of my customers really happy for the past month. Cheap as chips.

Not sure about V9S but I like my S3. Mainly because of its huuuuge signal meter display.

None of those - a cam slot would be handy if possible.

S3 has a CAM slot - works with all CAMs I threw at it, including CI+ ones.
