I recently dished Sky and I have another Satellite for the wife to watch Spanish TV.

I had initially set on an Ax HD61 UHD 4K receiver because it has 2 tuners, one for Freesat and the other for the other Satellite, however, we currently distribute all channels, from both satellites and two receivers to the rest of the house through RF signal and my wife insists the Spanish channels can be watched from any room in the house and I don't think that would be possible. So I decided to keep her satellite receiver and distribute the signal.

So now I'm after a new receiver, the Humax 1100s seems like it would be easy to pause, rewind and record, etc...but it's quite old so maybe there is something better.

Reading this forum I learnt the receivers based on e2 {linux) might be the wrong route for us..... so is there any other that can do what I need, receive Freesat, pause, forward, record channels, apps like BT TV, Netflix, YouTube, etc.

Your help is much appreciated.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Yup - most of them do - there are very few fta Spanish channels. There is the international service & the TVE news on 13E & a handful of regionals on 19E. Thats about it - anything more will require a TDT Sat receiver & dish aligned at 30W.

It was for the o/p to answer, in case they have a subscription service, or were planning to, which would affect the receiver choice.

@salvador
when you say Freesat,do you mean free to air or the Freesat platform?

I have a HDMI modulator which distributes the picture to all the TV's in the house. The picture is perfect HD rather than an analogue signal with RF.

The annoying thing with Freesat at the moment is with their official receicers you have to manually tune in Channel 4 HD. Something else to bare in mind.

Humaxs flagship product is the FVP 5000T Humax FVP-5000T Freeview Play Recorder which can record 4 channels at once however it's terrestrial Freeview instead of satellite which they seem to be pushing more these days.
