I was having a little peek at that. More expensive than the H5 (if you have 3 tuners) but does have ViX support.
Also has an SD slot? That's unusual unless they mean microsd?
Twice as much ram and flash memory though.

......I think I need one!

Waste of money in my eyes h5 or h2s is 60 quid tops slight less ram but equal processor and much more support available for them....only my opinion though

Well I ended up getting one and very pleased I did :grin:
I paid an extra £20 to make it a triple tuner with 2 sat and 1 cable/terrestrial. (£109 altogether).
It's a bit bigger than the Zgemma but it's a nice looking box with a really good display.

It seems to perform just as well as the Zgemma H5.2TC and the remote is very nice.
There is a full SD slot under the front flap. I'm using a 128gb microsd in an adapter and set it as hdd so no need for anything else plugged in.
Added bonus is Picture in Picture. Early days but well pleased so far.

.... Just found out it supports Kodi too.

Was this receiver something to do with Octagon when it was released in 2014? I am sure I saw an Octagon video featuring this on you tube. Have been trying to decide between the formuler, edision osmini and zgemma for a new bedroom box

Looking good if it has my forum name on the display I deserve some commission or at least a freebie pmsl

Is that showing the name of the plugin when going into plugins?

Yes mate, it's the plugin. It has a full scrolling display.
It shows DSAYERS: VIRGIN MEDIA UK CHANNELS INTO SKY UK, 3 times and then stops on DSAYERS :(y):

Early days yet but for the price i can't fault it.
I think they might possibly have been able to fit an internal hdd because it's bigger than a zgemma.
It doesn't get anywhere near as hot either, probably due to the size and the good ventilation.
The only other thing is that it doesn't have a hard reset power switch, just one on the side to put it in standby.
Definitely an upgrade from the H2H though, very much faster with bigger flash and ram.
I would recommend it over the H2H/S and Edision OS Mini.
