    Lightbulb Freeview+ HD BUT with good interface?

    Hello!

    Recently bought a freeview+ box (luxor) but it has had a problem which results in it resetting itself about 4 times an hour.

    What I am looking for is a freeview+ HD box which has a nice and quick interface.

    I would love to find a box which has a slick interface like xmbc but not sure if this exsists.

    Any advice would be great!
    Terry

    +1 to that!

    My one has been brilliant.
    I also have Raydon's media and file server adn AV2HDR installed on it.

    It's now a full blown media centre that I can transcode and upload films to as well as copy recorded films from.
    Since buying, I've not had it do anything bad or found any stupidly implemented anything on it.
    I cannot stress how much better it is than using an HTPC that requires constant fiddling to keep working.

    I got the Humax as well and they currently have the foxsat 320gb model on special in Richer Sounds for around £150 which is a cracking deal.

    I think it's the freesat box that is that price, not the freeview box.

    I bought one of these, took it home and sat it under the tele. Wife comes in and says 'what the foxsat?"

    Have a look for the Digital Stream DHR-8203. AFAIK this is based on the same hardware as the Humax. The interface is decent enough and it works very well. Cheap too!

    Antec micro fusion + H55 board + i3 2100 + blackgold bgt 3620 = very nice HTPC with freeview HD.

    only problem is the remote you get with the case, had to pick up a better one.
