    a simple [although technically incorrect ] way I described it to someone else
    Enigma 2 is a bit like the bios on a PC , the underlying firmware that actually starts the box up and makes it run
    OpenVix and openATV are like the OS , its what makes things happen, and what you see when you go into menus etc,
    there are also different images you can load onto the box to make it look like S*Y or Vermin if you so desire

    almost all newer boxes are E2 [enigma2] boxes, there are exceptions, the Openbox range etc

    having more than 1 tuner allows you to record and watch something different at the same time

    Yep, good way of describing E2.

    So imagine your cable box as a computer, there are different makes and models, they have different processor speeds, memory sizes, different makes of microchip etc.

    The "image" could be likened to your windows package, could be Vista (if your unlucky) Windows 7 , 8 , 10 etc.
    In this case it would be Openvix, OpenATV or various others.

    So in general you could mix and match the box with any image.

    However, that's not really the case for Zgemma and Openvix, to put it mildly they just don't get on with each other :D:D:D:D

    Openvix have a list of boxes they officially support and Zgemma isn't one.

    Zgemma do however have support from OpenATV.

    So in order to stay out of trouble I wouldn't try to mix Zgemma with Openvix.

    When you record a channel the tuner locks to the program you are recording.

    So you can't watch another program while recording is taking place with a single tuner.

    Two tuners, watch one while recording another. Three tuners ....record two and watch a third..... four tuners.... 5 tuners......you get the jist.
