    I'd like to add that I am playing around with IPTV too. But my main viewing is FreeSat & Freeview.

    Great idea to have a poll on this - I've often wondered the same thing.

    However, it's an odd format for the poll.

    4 options include "only" at the end which means I can only chose one of them and nothing else which doesn't seem correct to me.

    Why not something like:
    • Freesat
    • Freeview
    • Saorview
    • Free to air Cable
    • Non free to air Sat
    • Non free to air Terrestrial
    • Non free to air Cable
    • IPTV
    • Plex
    • ... etc


    I included Saorview since I know there are quite a few Irish users of OpenVix

    I understand what 'I use my Enigma 2 receiver for other non free to air reception and Freesat or Freeview' means but I have also included that to mean IPTV services unless I return to see another check-box

    No other type of receivers compare to Enigma 2 receivers. The most versatile receivers available. Can be used for soo much and endless customisation possibilities.

    Don't like the skin, no problem use a different skin.
    Many differant images from various 3rd party teams.
    Loads of plugins.
    Kodi plugin on some higher end models.
    Use as a PLEXDVR tuner server.
    Freesat, Freeview.
    IPTV.
    European satellite.
    Client mode to easily use as a multiroom system without the need of signal feeds.
    List is endless......

    I have receivers running in client mode and also a VU+ Ultimo4K more or less just running as a PLEXDVR tuner and tuner server for my client mode boxes around the house due the amount of tuners it can have.
