    Enigma boxes with multiple terrestrial tuners still available?

    As the title says, are there any Enigma boxes with multiple terrestrial tuners still available?

    I am looking to replace an Xtrend ET7100 and Zgemma H9 Combo with a box with multiple T tuners, but can't find one.

    VU+ Uno 4K SE T2 not available from WoS, and dual T2 tuners for the VU+ Ultimo 4K are currently unavailable, but could be back soon.

    I think the Zgemma H7C has two T/T2/C tuners and one S/S2/S2X tuner.

    Thanks for all your help everyone.

    Are manufacturers moving away from terrestrial receivers - I'm sure there used to be more offerings.

    I'd like to buy from WoS as they've been so reliable in the past - should I wait to see if any new products come to market, or is that unlikely to happen?

    Youíll not get a Terrestrial only receiver Iím sure, they are either Combo or Satellite variants.

    Are you willing to use USB tuners? Sundtek do double tuners. They offer best support.

    Zgemma are normally on higher Linux kernel so should support most tuners.

    I think they may not do them any more
    I've spent time looking for anyone selling Sundtek USB DVB-T products on the web and can't find any.

    I've come to that conclusion too, but there doesn't seem to be much provision for terrestrial at all. I presume there's no market now, otherwise they'd be available.

    I seem to be in the minority having only terrestrial tv, no satellite or cable here. I feel inadequate .

    Two of our team are Terrestrial only users, so you are in good company.

    Yes, choice is limited. Most people will watch TV on the TV set which does not have the functions of E2, or online. The STB manufacturers are there to make money. Pluggable cards increase manufacturing costs and reduce profits.

    I picked up three USB tuners for about £20 last year.

    I just want to be able to watch Freeview channels, record to my network and be able to view on any tv (with a box) in the house. The Enigma/VIX boxes enable me to do that. I'm just finding that I'm limited to what live TV I can watch while I'm recording.

    Thanks everyone for you help, its much appreciated.

    The problem is that the T tuners are also C, and C has gone pretty much so no call for it.

    Manufactures need to realise, that people using E2 devices now are not really after hacking pay TV but just prefer the interface and sharing around the house that you can do with a E2 box rather than a freeview / freesat box
