Metronic Gemini STB

 

The twin tuner feature

Really slow putting picture on screen on a few channels when changing to different channel, also box has reset itself for no apparent reason

The only non-PVR Freeview box on the market with two tuners, allowing you to watch one channel while recording another. Reasonably good EPG - clear, fairly easy to use and includes the ability to monitor the current channel.

Seriously unreliable. Often (2+ times a week) freezes up and needs rebooting. After a couple of months the timer stopped working altogether - when the programme is due to start, the box restarts itself but leaves the recording channel tuned as it was...

Has twin tuner

1. Soft picture quality. 2. Thumbprint picture in EPG indistinct. 3. Slow to respond to remote commands

It has two tuners so it works very well with older VCRs or DVD recorders. You can set the VCR to record one Freeview channel and set the TV to watch another Freeview channel.

The EPG is not brilliant but it works OK

Metronic Gemini STB

 

Easy set up; excellent picture quality; no freezing; looks & feels solid & well made; ability to record whilst watching another channel; has off switch to save energy.

Remote is a bit fiddly, sometimes have to press button several times before response (minor niggle).

Its the only twin tuner freeview box I was able to find on the market, after extensive internet research. It seems to work fine.

It is a little slow to respond, but not too bad. The control logic of the twin tuner mechanism seems slightly perverse, but is OK once familiar

Simple to install and use. Useful to have the dual mode of watching one programme and recording another at the same time.

It's black! It's quite high compared with some digiboxes that I've seen.

Twin tuner so that I can convert both my analogue DVD recorder & and my analogue TV with one unit

I honestly haven't found any. I have 2 of these units 1 in the lounge and one in the bedroom both perform extremely well
