Hi guys, i need to buy a box in a few weeks, just need to buy a box, stuck between the tm600 or tm6800 HD, if anybody has got these boxes can you please write ur experiences are they good boxees?? is the tm 6800HD a linux box??
tm6800hd is not linux but its HD
I have a Technomate 9100 and TM600, currently using UR image on the tm600.
Would i recommend it?
Yes and No?
Build quality is good. Has USB ports inside, at the front and back, NO SD Card Reader!
Has a Common Interface slot, it's poorly supported in quantity of software, but the software that is out there is of VERY good quality, and there are a lot of good folks out there writing stuff abot this, for which we are all externally grateful.
Build Quality: 7/10
Style and Design: 5/10
Picture Quality: 7/10
Value For Money: 10/10
but i will go for a tm600 instead as its more cheaper and has more advantages.
Software 10/10 ?? Are you having a laugh. The software is crap in comparison with the better images available on other devices...Gemini, Nabilo, PLI etc.
Value for money is not 10/10 either, considering you can get a Dm600 clone for the same money...and that is definitely a better reciever with better hardware spec, support and software.
Features 10/10...no chance..basic 16:9 display doesnt work properly, compatibility with CCAM server mode doesnt work properly...as is well documented on this forum several times...
I would say...spend an extra 40 quid and buy a openbox 800hd/skybox/solomend 800... linux based HD reciever, very good price...around 120 ish quid maybe less.
Cheapest i have seen the tm6800HD is £189.00 on fleabay. I have a tm600, so all things considered i would say get a latest model dm800 hd clone (from around £160 upwards).
Its got great support, will do everything you want. If you were considering a tm600, its no harder to set up ... and costs around or less than the tm6800HD.
Just my 10p worth.
