Hi,

I looking at what would be a good replacement for my old Topfield PVR5000. With similar features :-
- freeview / teresstrial
- twin tuner
- PVR
- Aceess across the network / USB download of content (Wi-Fi preferable).
- OK - HD support Wink
- HDMI
- SATA HDD support even if external

Looking at World of Satellite - https://www.world-of-satellite.co.uk/satellite-and-terrestrial/digital-receivers/multi-tuners-and-combo-receivers/edision-os-mio-4k-grey

Cheers,

That's only got 1 freeview tuner (and 1 satellite tuner).

Sourcing enigma boxes with only freeview tuners is difficult at the moment, but some manufacturers support twin dvb-T2 tuners ie. one aerial input, one tuner slot, but effectively 2 tuners.

I have recently bought a Humax HDR Fox T2 to replace my failed toppy 5810.

Not entirely happy with it compared to the toppy but does the job.

They appear on e bay quite often

You know about the modded firmware for the T2 which adds a lot of useful functionality?

Thanks. Yes I am aware of the modded software and the box I bought came with it installed. But I miss MyStuff. The Humax EPG is nowhere near as good.
