Choice of Operating Systems – Why Choose Enigma2 Option?

Choosing this option allows you tap into some great online features:

 

  • 7 Day EPG Guide on Satellite as well as Saorview channels
  • Automatic channel updating if there is a new frequency changes
  • Ability to add Series link option
  • Ability to add additional features as free plugins become available
  • Display channel logo next to channel e.g. BBC, ITV, C4 Logos etc
  • Possible to automatically group and list channels e.g. By movies, news, kids

 

Note: 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 Edision OS MIni Combo receiver is that it is based on Linux and comes with the stability of that operating system
  • The Edision OS MIni Combo linux receiver is a premium box with high spec components
  • The Edision OS MIni Combo receiver is capable of a variety of internet functions (Youtube, Shoutcast, Opera etc)
  • The Edision receiver is customisable & upgradeable
  • 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 an external hard drive)
  • Can receive both satellite (UK channels) and terrestrial (Saorview channels) in same box
  • Large remote for older people
  • Extremely responsive remote

Disadvantages

  • More expensive than a standard definition satellite receiver
  • 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)
  • It is more expensive than other linux receivers in our range (eg. Amiko Alien Mini) because it is a triple tuner linux receiver and uses higher spec components, faster processor and more RAM, which in turn leads to far less instability issues when running Enigma2
