Enigma2 is an open source freeware platform – people use it as it has a great online community behind it and allows you to add lots of features. But it is really for DIYers who can put up with the pains that come with this type of a “lets develop a feature and see what happens’ – it is not covered or supported officially by any manufacturer. We give a full warranty on the default Spark OS which is both reliable and fully supported by the manufacturer. We don’t (no one does) give warranty on any Enigma2 features

Advantages

  • The big advantage of the Amiko Alien 2 is that as the name suggests, it is a triple tuner
  • This means that you can record a UK channel and watch any other UK channel (need two satellite feeds from dish & external USB storage device)
  • This extra satellite tuner means that it is more versatile than a standard combo receiver when recording
  • The Amiko Alien 2 Triple Tuner tuner is capable of a variety of internet functions (Youtube, Shoutcast, Opera etc)
  • Supports on demand catchup TV services like RTE player on ENIGMA2
  • The Amiko Alien 2 Triple Tuner is capable of being upgraded to ENIGMA2
  • Does the job of both a HD satellite receiver and a HD digital terrestrial receiver in a single unit
  • Supports both standard & high definition transmissions
  • It futures proofs your investment by meeting all the latest HD standards
  • Has PVR features (ie. Can pause/record Live TV with addition of external storage device)
  • Large remote for older people
  • Extremely responsive remote
  • It has a DVB-T2 tuner which means it is suitable for both Saorview & Freeview HD

Disadvantages


The Amiko Alien 2 Triple Tuner does not support MHEG5 which will mean no teletext on HD terrestrial channels

More expensive than either a HD satellite receiver or a standalone digital terrestrial receiver but cheaper than getting them separately
It does not have an RF out i.e. it is not possible to run the picture to an additional room unless you use either an external Modulator or a TRI-Link (allows you to operate box with a sky eye from another room)

Although it does not have a 7-day EPG on satellite channels by default, the Amiko Alien 2 can receive a 7day EPG on the UK channels over the internet with Enigma2

The Edision Optimuss OS3+ Triple tuner has 4x processor speed / RAM and broadcom chipset which leads to greater stability
