Cracking deal seeing as they wanted £279 for the same box in currys. currys.co.uk/gbu…tml Managed to get one at currys on a price match so got an extra 10% off.

if i have sky can i just plug the coaxial cable from the sky dish straight into the humax and it will just work or do i have to adjust the dish to point somewhere else?

I've never had to adjust the dish. Just plug the 2 cables into the dual tuner sockets and away you go.

Yes it works straight out the box.

My only criticisms of these are 1. Still waiting for the catch up TV for Channels 4 & 5. And 2. Sometimes it simply doesn't record a programme series as requested. Otherwise very good Freesat HD.

These boxes are made for connections from a satellite dish and won't work with virgin cable.

pretty much same price at RS

Yes, this model. I bought mine when it first came out (November -ish) and they were about to come out 'any day soon' back then too LOL.

The stupid thing is you can get these features with XBMC on a computer.

I have XBMC running too on my HTPC. Can you recommend a plugin to get these players. I've saw ones for iplayer but the GUI was terrible. At least through the HUMAX I can browse the historical EPG and it will link directly to the iplayer and soon 4oD etc.

I don't really bother that much because Navi-X is brilliant by itself. But I had a quick look for you and Mossy is the one I have XBMC plugin for 4OD
