Amiko 8820 CI-CX (FULL HD) - Combo Receiver - good buy at €125?

http://www.satworld.ie/product-info....er-pid402.html

Anyone know if this is the best to buy at the moment? I like the option of pause/record, once I connect an external hard drive.

why not get a ferguson, cheaper and it lets you record one channel while watching another but if you like this box here is a nice review.

I have an Amiko 8820 and find it a great box, you CAN record terrestrial while watching satellite and vise versa

And is there full 7 day program details for both the satellite and saorview channels? I was reading in an earlier forum that 7 day info is NOT available ofr saorview channels, but this was the case a few months ago - it may be sorted by now...

Most combo boxes do not have 7 day guide for Satellite.
