Hi all :)

I currently have a satlink 2700 digital sat receiver and we want to upgrade to PVR.

We have dual dishes set up for Optus D1 & D2.

I have narrowed down my choices to the DishTV S7010PVR and the Strong SRT4300e.

WHich of these units is the better or are they much the same?

Appreciate comments, user experience with either of these

No it isn't, you are thinking of the S7090PVR. If you're serious about getting a satellite PVR then look for a double tuner model like the Vu Duo. A single tuner model cannot let you watch or record TV1 and TV3 at the same time. The S7090PVR is a double tuner model but it looks like it doesn't support the EIT EPG used by non Freeview channels.

Thanks for the advise guys. I went with the Dish TV unit. Looks well supported locally and is a really nice small size.
