    Ho Ho Ho guys.

    I currently have a zgemma h2h but i'm wanting to purchase a dual cable tuner to record and watch different feeds at the same time.

    Is this the best dual tuner cable box available for under £100, I know zgemma is hugely popular and alot of work is done on them but would appreciate some feedback on this box before i purchase.

    Thanks.

    It is a great box for the cash. Don't think it's a Twin Tuner for that price though. I'd double check first before buying. I've got a USB second tuner on one of my Miracle boxes.Works fine.

    The miraclebox mini hybrid is only a single cable tuner.
    The cheapest twin cable tuner receiver is the technomate at £138

    but doesnt the hybrid split the signal inside enabling you to record a different channel to one you watch?

    No mate. In this case it means it can be used for terrestrial or Cable.

    I am new on the forum and this is my first post. For the H2H you could have a line for the sat and another one for cable. That way you could record one while watching another...this is what I read somewhere on the forums..sorry couldn't find the post, so I hope thats correct!!

    A real good receiver is the mutant HD51 twin cable £228

    Hi Dangerous, what is a hybrid? - this specific model is Cable/terrestrial... what does that mean in lehmann's terms?

    To record one and watch another you need a twin cable tuner

    so boxes like

    Vu+ Solo SE V2 Twin Tuner DVB-C/T/T2 Cable
    Technomate TM-Nano-SE M2 PLUS Enigma 2 Linux HD PVR TRIPLE TUNER Combo
    Xtrend ET8500 2x DVB-C/T/T2
    GiGaBlue HD X3 Linux Enigma 2 HD PVR Satellite Receiver Triple Tuner Combo 1x DVB-S/S2 + 2x DVB-C/T/T2

    Miraclebox premium twin + is another but they haven't got them in at the mo.

    Cheapest is Technomate £140, order the box pre flashed with Openvix
