Caveat: I have not tried this unit, but seems a good mix of Freeview TV with Android TV. Not sure exactly what the download capabilities actually are, but may be restricted compared to an Enigma 2 device.

I still have a DTR 100, which I managed to have exchanged just before the guarantee expired on the original free machine supplied by Youview. This one has been fine ever since, although I only really use it for iPlayer-like purposes, and occasional recordings of something that I don't wish to keep, ...

I recently bought a Zgemma, and it definitely runs VIX now (came preinstalled by WOS), It's very much quicker than my Miraclebox, but is massively slowed down if making two or three recordings and downloading another to the PC. Doesn't interfere with TV activities, just the speed of download. Mine h...

I have no green button now. Only monochrome and HTML blue (and that seems to be inoperative in most cases). Basically, this interface is derived from the box itself, as I access it using the box IP/name. I have tried rebooting the box and the PC, with no luck. I am going to wait for a recording to f...

Problem with webif on Enigma 2

I was having a slight problem with the WebIF to my Miraclebox, when I noticed a button marked "New Design", which, stupidly, I pressed. This sent the IF into a tizzy, and it now shows as non-graphical. The interface on the box itself is as normal. I cannot for the life of me get the normal...

If you ever find an Enigma/Vix for non-Unix savvy people forum, I'd love to know about it. A little late to the party, but I'll add my thanks for this site too, Nigel. Julie I'll let you know. I really only use my Enigma 2 for recording, which I manage remotely, and then (also remotely) copying fil...

I have one of these devices, so if it is not fixed by the psu change, come back and I'll try to find it. Great little thing in its time, but a little slow by current standards.

I bought my first Toppy in 2005, and it still sits beneath my TV. I just don't use it. I joined this forum about the same time, and I still log in, but honestly, I don't really use it any more. It's just for sentiment and some stability in this ever changing world. I frequently find myself thinking ...

Just to add to the woes I've just received this message from my sister: "Ok. I'd switched off the power then on again , still locked to the installation screen and not responding to any exit or menu button." From the depths of my memory, this is the normal situation if no channels are tun...

On some channels, 4:3 is broadcast with black bars included (added to the picture), to make 16:9. The TV sees them 16:9.
