I'm in the same situation and read somewhere that if your buying new you might as well go for the 256 as it's quicker but if you've got the 254 and thinking of upgrading not worth it at the moment

Well I got a 254w1 for my dad now. I can't see how it could be quick. The 254 loads up and changes channels at a respectable speed and is no slower than the tv it's self.

So may as well save a few quid...

I'm happy with my 254 as well and as you say it's not slow. I think the processor is better on the 256 but also read that you can't record on the 256 yet.

You can record if your iptv provider allows it. There is another way by downloading your m3u file to the IPTV channels section on the main menu. I've got it set up like that but can't remember how i did it. I must have followed some instructions on line.

I have a couple of different subs . I used one of those which is not attached to a mag to get the m3u file from. I also have a sub now which allows you to use on mag or an other device as long as it's not the same time. I think best bet is to google it.
