    I've had a Zgemma H1 for 2-3 years now and while I've got a few quid to play with at the mo I thought I might upgrade to a faster box even though the H1 still works fine. I'm cable only with Virmin and I'm also running Wooshbuild (brilliant). My TV isn't the latest 4K so no point in getting a box capable of showing it....or should I future proof and get one? I'd appreciate any recommendations on what box to go for. Should I even stick with another Zgemma or try something else?

    Thanks for the feedback guys. As I'm more familiar with Zgemma I'm inclined to think the H52TC is the one to go for

    Sorry for late reply. Was on nights and renegotiate new bb. Deal and a cracker of a deal I got.took an hour but I got what required.

    All the above are good but for simplicity to set up . Mag322 or formuler z7 +
    z7+ not to everyone's cup of tea but for for iptv and Android cannot fault it.
    Apart from slow epg.

    the H52tc is better value than the H2H and only a few quid more, as your only using cable then the H2H only gives just one usable tuner, the h52tc gives you twin cable tuners. The h52tc is also a new and faster box. Both will run wooshbuild so will be familiar.

    Think I've decided on the H52TC.....at least I'll know how to configure it. Is it safe to assume I can use my current line with the new box?

    Yes, your existing line will work on the H52tc.

    Anyone know what the best box would be for sat and cable feeds, also a multi sat feed from a motorised dish, i am currently using a zgemma h2h for sat and cable, with a seperate line for each, i have the motorised dish connected to a dreambox as the h2h wouldnt move the motor, i have a euro line on the motorised, although i rarely use it nowadays, the idea was get rid of the h2h and dreambox and get a box to cover all three connections, i was just looking some suggestions, thanks.

    Yes i will have a look at the Formuler F1, need 1 cable and 2 sat connections if possible, does your motor move easy enough with it, those wee h2hs just dont have the power, i spent 2 days last year trying and give it up as a bad job, thanks steptoe i will check the formuler F1 out.
