    Wink New Receiver Purchase - Would value some feedback

    Morning,

    So, my Technomate TM-Twin OE display has given up the ghost. The display no longer works, which means that the buttons on the front don’t work either, and neither does the remote, so having to use the web GUI, that is until I get the spinny wheel in the top left and then that’s it, hard reset, which happens after about 5 minutes. I’m not sure if the problem with the OS is being cause by the faulty hardward. Anyway…... So, I’m looking to purchase another.

    On the shortlist are :

    Trviar Alpha+
    Technomate TM-Twin 4K
    VU+ Duo2
    Mutant HD51

    Obviously a selection of receivers, at different price levels and capabilities, but I basically want it for Satellite & PVR, & it has to be reliable, or I'll be getting calls from the wife during the day complaining that she can't watch her Hollyoaks!!!!!!!!! lol

    So, great people of the forum, what are your thoughts?

    Thank you, and have a great day………………..

    Hi there,
    Do you have a 4k television? if so then I would personally recommmend either the technomate or mutant from your list.
    I bought a VU+ Zero 4k to replace my Technomate solo se ( I don't require twin tuners) a couple of weeks ago to go with Panasonic 4k tv and although there aren't really any 4K channels to speak of, I am impressed on how well it upscales 1080 resolution.

    I don't have a 4K TV, but looking at my options, the receivers are 4K anyway, just the way they are going. It's only being used for FreeSAT, the only thing I watch in HD is the F!, if C4 have it, or the news.....lol If a channel does have a HD version of the channel, I do use that instead of Standard.
