    dilema , DM800HD vs VU+ Duo vs TM800HD

    Im at loggerheads as to which sat to buy.this week i nearly bought the a DM800HD with the new ferrari sim at 190 .then i read about the TM800HD and lots of ppl giving it the thumbs up before up pops the VU+ duo with the twin tuner and more rave reviews.

    i dont mind spending the extra money on the VU+ Duo if the extra's and quality justify the 380 price tag but is it worth it ?.
    also ,im use the layout and set up of a dreambox sat so am i right in saying the VU+ Duo can be flashed with dreambox software ?.
    any help on me making the right choice would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks,.

    1. Stay away from DM800 Clones (there is a liklehood you will get a bum one)

    2. TM800HD, I have also heard good things, it's open source (It's 50 more than the clone dm800). Sounds like this would be the one of my choice.

    3. Vuo Duo + is dual tuner, do you really need a dual tuner. If so go for this one.

    i do know the benefit of the dual tuner is recording while watching another which can be handy but apart from that im unsure what else it offers to justify the higher price.reading the specs doesnt help as well especially when you dont understand some of it.

    save up and get an original dm800 they are awsome. Mine is the best sat box I have ever owned.

    Yes they are well over priced

    Re: dilema , DM800HD vs VU+ Duo vs TM800HD

    I have played with dm800 clones and also own the vu+ duo. The clones are very hit and miss and I would not recommend at all whilst they are. The vu+ duo is a rock solid dual tuner receiver and I am well happy with mine but the extra tuner is important to me. The TM800 is enigma2 so would be very comparable from a users point of view but only has one tuner so I would say it depends how important the second tuner is to you.

    What I would add though is there is no contest pound for pound between the vu+ duo and an original dm800 and it is not the latter of the two that wins

    I agree. For a receiver that has only been about for a couple of months the support is massive

    If you don't mind a box with closed firmware then the Spiderbox is definitely worth a look.
