Our Superview820 satellite receiver recently gave up the ghost which means we can no longer watch the Hungarian Duna TV.  So I need to replace this and I am looking for some advice as the best option.  I would prefer not avoid the cheaper end of the market and if at all possible have HDMI output.  Not sure if I need a PVR or not (we can record to DVR) but would consider that.  I don't need Freeview or Sky capabilities as I have devices for those already.   My view is I would prefer quality, reliability and functionality so don't mind spending a few bucks.

Have a look on Tredeme.
Several Superview models there quite cheap.

Something with HDMI will give you better picture quality.

The Ultraplus 720HDMI is cheap, has HDMI and can record to USB.

The Ultraplus 720H looks like it is specifically for Freeview - or at least has been tuned to Freeview for the New Zealand market. Duna TV is broadcast via the Opus D2 satellite and was hoping for a STB that would receive signals from that satellite.  As i said originally, I would prefer quality over price.

Not always true.
