This is the way I have my Twin set up. Since the begining i liked this box. What I have recently used up to now is A TM 6900 Super, TM 7100 Triple, TM800HD, DM800se clone and a TM 5402 HD so that is what I am comparing it with. I never had a VU so cant compare it with that but would love to. I think the Twin is excellent and have grown to really like it. If it keeps going in the same direction it will become very popular
Currently I am running IQ 29/03/2012
Boot time from cold start is 1 min 55 secs. Channel zapping averages out at about 1 second which is very quick. Picture quality is top class as you always get from TM receievers. The main epg works well i use that one but in the past have used cool epg which works well also. Timers for recording can be set easily from the epg or just simply import a timer. See Screenshots.
I use the easy media plugin to handle most off what I use daily, Its a handy little plug in that can be installed simply pressing Blue, press IQ packet, then extensions then easy media.
I have mapped the yellow button on the remote so on long press will bring me to the following on screen menu.
Simply scroll to the one you want and select it. It is totally customizable for what you like best.
So far I have tested AVI, MKV, movies on this image and have had no problems. FF/RW/Pause all work. When watching live TV pause also works well.
The remote has a facility to enable you to control your TV also. Skins are a bit thin on the ground at present as a lot off them will need some recoding to work on this box. So far i have used The default and also Vix NightHD which is very nice. Over all performance is very stable and solid. I have not had a single crash with this image. I have tried 3 different models off HDD and it recognized all off them so far, two 3.5 inch sata and one 2,5 inch sata. Streaming is working ok I have tried it in a browser and also using Dream streamer I could certainly recommend this box with no problems at all. There are many other features i have not mentioned.Another positive is you are buying a box thats has its headquarters in the UK so if something should go wrong its easily sorted as opposed to buying in china etc. Looks like TM will do well with this box and not before time.
