Defo going down the Zgemma route as set up a mates zgemma with wooshbuild so love the Skyq skin and sky look. Just new to IPTV so working out which which Zgemma to get.There is a massive difference between the h2s and the i55 box,They may both have the same chip sets and processors but the fact the h2s has sat tuners means the chip sets operates in a different capacity,The i55 setup is purly for streaming,That is the way its programed,as for the magboxes being overrated then what a load of crap,Both boxes are top notch iptv devices,If you look there is a nice section on here about the i55,I have used both boxes a long time and exellent with the right broadband speed and setup,Simple terms and fact,Anyone who loves enigna 2 type skins and playing about and zgemma fans then the i55 is the one,If you are not confident on iptv setups and just want a simple setup box to watch all your tv then go for the newer mag 256 as its a big step up on the 254 but both are fantastic
databiz i will try and anwser your question as best as possible,The h2s is designed as a satellite box and as we can no longer recieve sky channels by card share then i can not see why one would buy that box,You have 3 options really,You can look for a good all round box that can do cable,satellite,iptv and that way you can have options,Other is go down the iptv box route,3rd option which is what people tend to forget is you can pay £200 for a box and a good smart tv is around £300 and will do full iptvDefo going down the Zgemma route as set up a mates zgemma with wooshbuild so love the Skyq skin and sky look.

Going slightly off topic. Trying to understand the differences between other Zgemma's - Saves me creating a new thread (sorry to hijack)
Is H2S compatible if I decide to go down the virgin media route. May end up with Virgin Media and IPTV so get both. Can I do that on H2S or will I need to get H2H
Setting up a dozen of them as we speak for friends and family and you have chosen the best option si111,Any one pissing about with other boxes that they are having issues with i just dont understand,Magbox 254/256 and a decent broadband speed around 20 mbps and a decent provider and that is the finest setup you can have for iptv,OK i have a vu and xtrend but just for pure watching streamed tv and a half decent layout its the best,Plain and simple like bake beans,What it says on the tin it is the best,Ebay is full of people flogging their zgemma boxes,Pick one up for about a tennor nowive used to different iptv providers and can honestly say the zgemma h2s box 80% of the time is ok but it freezes on certain channels,
I was thinking of a vu box but have decided to order a mag 256 as my mrs chews my ear off when tv freezes,lol
About time someone spoke some common sence,Been saying it for 18 months,Like i posted above,If you like playing around with skins and plugins then the i55 is the one,For easy setup then the mag is a great option but 2 good boxes,The i55 will run on slower broadband speedsI have experience with several boxes. I have a Zgemma H2H with virmen in the family room. a zgemma hth running sly in our bedroom and in the study i have a roku box running plex server, a mag 254 a android box running a few apk's and a zgemma i55 box.
the differences between the mag 254 and zgemma i55 are mainly in the user interface. Using iptv i find the mag and i55 both have the same amount of stability. I love the i55 as i have it set up exactly the same way as my H2H box running wooshbuild. its slick and pro looking. the 254 is very basic, but basic works without a hitch.
ive found it difficult to get a decent set up on the i55 as not alot of providers cater for the boxes. but i have recently taken out a sub and have been blown away by it. not only has all the channels been split into appropriate bouquets but there is a fully working epg and also allows you to record.
The only thing i noticed is the vod feature with the mag254 works better than on the i55.
it will ultimately come down to personal preference i love the way the i55 works at the moment looks top notch. but the simplicity of the mag will be appealing to others.
The zgemma h2h can run iptv but it struggles with some of the FHD channels taking a little longer to load.
