    twin tuner meaning you can record one thing and watch another. media player that plays avi,s mkv and a whole lot of others. its very nice. i got the dm800 coz the blade wasnt in stock, probably one of the worst choices ive made. if the blade isnt in stock wait for it to be mate. and its a piece of piss to flash. choice is yours but trust me

    and you can shell out the cash on a expensive box but all it takes is for sky to counter then what?

    if your too concerned about sly counter measures, then get something like a cheap Openbox HD S11(£60), cant compare it with the Blade, as its too brilliant in my oppinion :), but still a decent box the Openbox S11 (i have them both).

    or some boxes are open sourced like the duo,or closed like the blade who can only do the updates,if they did knock the boxes off it would only be a short thing,too many good people tinkering out there.

    tongs, daft quote is 'use a different encryption and kill the boxes'. They cannot kill boxes, they can enhance encryption. box will always work with satellite free to air channels including high def channels.

    cactikid, i reserve my judgement on what you say. Vu+s with foxtel no longer work and oscam designers have failed to deliver a solution over 6 months.

    personally when the game ends i'll be totally happy with saorview and bbc/itv channels :). Tend to watch these channels more than most

    yes i understand maybe i should have said stops you receiving premium channels. and if they were to get round another encryption then you may need a newer box ( if it did happen here). all in all i still say the blade is a very good box for the price. just my opinion tho
