    Hi

    I have been using a Zgemma H.2H on a VM cable line for 3 years, every year i have to buy another Zgemma as the one i had seems to have got very hot and it would not power up there would only be a "red" light when turning on the box. This has happened to 3 boxes.

    I know these boxes are cheap in price but i dont want to keep buying them every year.

    Does anyone have suggestions for a good enigma 2 linux cable box? not concerned about the price.

    Thanks

    You won't go far wrong with this and you get 8 cable tuners:

    Thanks. Can this box record one channel while watching another channel? can timers be set for recording?, does it have a good size hard drive or do you have to use an external hard drive? thanks

    You can watch one channel whilst recording seven others :thumbsup:
    You'll need your own media to store recordings i should think

    The original uno 4K had to have an external hard drive but this new model takes an internal hdd.

    Have you actually sucessfully recorded 7 channels at once? - I can't imagine a situation when this would be required though...

    Only when I first got it to test it. Yes they all recorded successfully.
    I mainly use mine to record FTA, obviously a line provider isn't going to be happy about recording 8 premium channels at the same time ;)
