    I'm not aware of any enigma receiver that is capable of this.

    The Azbox HD is the only E2 receiver that could do it but Id say it would be hard to find one nowadays. And with only 32Mb flash the DOM needed to be changed to load an E2 image.

    I was one of the unfortunate customers that bought the AZ HD Premium+ and I even wasted more money by increasing the DOM and buying a second tuner and it was still so painfully slow it was useless.

    While it could open 4.2.2 transmissions...the problem was by the time you had scanned for any feeds...the feeds were more or less over so not even that good for feed-hunting, the only reason I bought it was to watch the feeds from badminton tournaments from the far east and Europe that were mainly transmitted in 4.2.2 and for that it worked OKish, the only other feeds I got on a regular basis were American football feeds because their games lasted 4 hours or so but for anything else it was totally useless.

    Still got it hidden in a cupboard along with other out of date receivers so I am not reminded of what a complete waste of money it was, I remember there was another receiver that could do 4.2.2 transmissions but I can't remember the name.

    Yes there was a commercial receiver (expensive) - I think it was the Qualitv or something like that. Anyway its quite easy to stream the feed to a pc to view anyway.
