    What receiver has the best remote?

    I am struggling to decide what 4k receiver to get, there is too much choice which is not a bad thing. Current contenders:

    Octagon SF8008
    Edision Mio 4k
    Zgemma H9 TWIN
    Vu+ DUO 4k


    They all seem balanced as options but which has the most user friendly remote? Any none IR options? Wondering if I can get my lg magic remote working with them...ill have to look into that

    Hi,
    for the Duo 4K you can get an optional BlueTooth Remote. But even without the additional remote it is the most expensive one.

    I like my Duo 4K as it is also the fastest one.

    What are your requirements? Will you be using IPTV on the new receiver?

    Hi,
    when you are something like a feed hunter look for a box with hardware blind scan. Most boxes offer fake, software blind scan.

    I would avoid Vu+ if gonna use IPTV, simply because the SF8008 for instance has Stalker which is great for IPTV.

    The SF8008 gets my vote and the remote is nice too.

    Zgemma H9 Twin has Stalker too and another good option.
