    those days are long gone,the service you are thinking of now comes with a price tag but with hd now.plenty of excellent enigma2 receivers to look at.

    so you want a good cable box single tuner,recording ? if yes twin cable tuner and internal hdd.
    linux boxes are enigma2 and open sourced [ can run any image ]
    vu,xtrend,miracle box for a start.

    Cactikid checked out the boxes you posted the miracle box looks the job the spec says premium mini+ hd combo (1+dvb-3 s2 hybrid -c/t/2, don't understand most of that also asks for options of firmware it says enigma 2 firmware image options flashed free of charge or can choose one of these ,
    Openvix latest
    Egami
    Open mb nightly
    Open atv nightly
    Can you tell me which is the best , also in Ireland if that makes any difference
    Ps can a sub be put on this box , thank for help and patience .........
