    Not really mate, if you buy it pre flashed with vix, all you need is a decent external usb hard drive to store recordings and epg.

    aye i thought i would give him a scare and say that was a clone box lol [ duo se ] never heard of it.
    vu+ solo se v2 excellent top rated box from over there for cable.

    correct usb are handy if ever it needs flashing as some people got bad image updates needing a reflash.
