That's what I was saying, under the others like VU will be ARM compatible as well. The reason there is a different download for the Dreamboxes is because they use Debian based DreamOS.

What are you thinking of getting :) ?
Gigablue quad, and add the s2x tuners, not cheap though.

Would be interested in a comparison between the Gigablue and the Mutant tbh.

Depends what you're using the box for. Any features stand out on the Gigablue and how many tuners do you need?

The mutant will let you plugin dvb-2 dongles via the usb sockets on the back.

I think you can also use one of the tbs usb satcards with it as I have seen the drivers in the download list.

2 really, but would be nice to have s2x as well, the gigablue just looks a more solidly built machine like the VU, and the mutant has that tuning problem.

No, they ALL have that tuning problem. It's an E2 issue that i've reported. The motor bug is fixed but it's caused another issue which it will sit there forever if the first transponder is dead if you try and do a scan. You can work around this till its fixed. But as I mentioned it affects all E2 boxes based on OE-A based images.

It seems the S2X tuners are not available for the Gigablue atm, I'm sure they were yesterday :oops:

I know WoS said there was low stock on the DVB-S2X Tuners at some point.
