    There are a few boxes that would work. It depends on your budget.

    Are you planning on keeping your Sat feed going on the v8s box? Bear in mind that those boxes suggested above will only have 1 tuner, you can also get a combo box for £99

    spending a little more can go further,the odd time i had kodidirect working i was downloading the odd film to hdd.

    i say to people think ahead and buy once then in 4 years time you can update.

    Best too as everyone buys the cheapest then find it doesn't do XYZ and then want to spend a bit more. Just get something fairly decent as you never know when you may want to record, stream or whack kodi on it.
