    What's the fastest EPG and Channel change dual tuner Receiver available?

    I've done lots of searching but cannot find a definitive answer.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    At the moment I have a ZGemma Star S2 which is a little slow and I want to buy the best.

    Thanks

    The Vu+ Solo2, Vu+ Duo2 & Vu+ Solo4K are very quick at gathering and parsing epg data.

    I've just read a review on the Solo4K, that reports that it's the fastest they've ever used (faster than the Duo2). http://linux-tv.com/receiver/vu-solo-4k/

    I assume this is down to the ARM Processor over the MIPS? Are there other ARM based receivers out there?

    Check my sig, if you only want dual sat input the solo2 is the fastest in normal operation of the 3, it flashes, reboots, blind scans, parses epg faster than duo2 or solo4k.

    if you are on about the speed of crossepg etc on other boxes, its due to drivers i believe and the way the read the data, vu are able to do something others dont do.

    Great info, thanks. How does the Solo2 compare in speed to the Solo2 SE? Is it the same? They are the same internal;s except the screen and space for hard drive right?
