    soo errm i increased my budget (£200) now looking at 4k cable boxs:binoculars:have a single virmin line to the house.

    had a quick peak on W.O.S that mutant HD51 looks BANG TIDY ! can it record while watching another channel ?

    also do VU have a 4k cable box

    Think the mutant is a dual tuner now for your 200 wad only one tuner'for that) becausE VU have released their 4k boxes but they're a lot dearer. You can only run OScam bare in mind.

    Yes, watch one channel record the other.
    I can't comment on the handling picture quality as I haven't purchased one yet (I've got the previous model)
    The few people I've come across have not mentioned anything bad so it's a thumbs up to this receiver ;-)

    Two cable (DVB-C)
    Not sure about your HDD ask the suppliers where your buying the receiver from.

    The mutant HD 51 is oscam or mgcamd 1.35 (although I've not tested it on mgcamd)
    Any line will go into oscam though

    No, it seems the newer receivers now want you to go into oscam (not all of them)
    I'm just about to try mgcamd now buts it's 1.35 not 1.38.
    A mate of mine has got the 8500 ;-)

    Personally I wouldn't buy any receiver thinking you will get 4K, it's too early to say if will will ever see it.

    I bought the mutant HD51 because of the internal HDD, 1.7ghz processor and of course its twin cable.
