Recording which Zgemma 2s

Just poating here as I have a 2s but wondering if anyone could recommend a box with better memory for recording freeview..don't think my IPTV is setup to record as provider has advised against it.

Basically the box(es) I've two, aren't up to the job anymore as regards Iptv..the H9s are a bit expensive thinking of something in between...?

If anyone knows which boxes record and which don't I've two sat cables coming into each box as I've noticed some boxes have what looks like an rf input and a sat input..?

Cheers for any help...

seems like Zgemma h2s is the next step up..........the h9s might be expensive at the moment but buying a h2s might be false economy if you find that you will upgrade again sooner. whereas getting a h9s might buy a bit more time

What are you recording on to? If it’s a small sized usb e.g 16gb try replacing with a larger external hard drive.

Recording to 500gb drive so loads of room.

No issues usually recording but a single tuner means great IPTV probably but no record option would record stuff pretty often.

No probs..was thinking that..soon h2s will be out of date.

I've had the 2 star 2s now since 2015.


I know ram etc isn't up to IPTV as were meant for satellite etc..

H9 2s would probably be the next best option

I didn't think there was any box cheaper than the H9s!! That would be a upgrade for h2s

Hi..

I've 2 separate Iptv lines coming in.

Right now I just want a more powerful box for IPTV but also the ability to record sat/fta channels.

One of my zgemmas is freezing a lot even on fta channels..!

Think it's had it's day.

But in the future if I can get an IPTV setup to be able to record even better.

If you need one upstairs I would think a single satellite set up would do that and a twin for your main one so cheapest option would be h9s upstairs and h9.2s as main one!!

Was checking earlier and a h92s is around £70/£80 not too bad considering the spec....guy I got the zgemma off 3/4 years ago was charging £115 per box when it was c lines etc...that was gift as well at the time but service was awful...
