Maximum T-8000 CX-CI

31.05.2008

A new digital set-top box: Maximum T-8000 CX-CI (the old Topfield started to be a bit unreliable and out-of-date). This new one has more powerful processor (=faster in certain areas), more HDD, HDMI output and an ethernet connector to the LAN. Minuses so far: no automatic search programming from EPG (this was a TAP add-on in Topfield, hopefully something similar will be developed for Maximum, too) — and an irritating bug: if recording starts when the box is in stand-by, the recording will work ok, but the box will remain unresponsive until you exit the recording. Thus, it is best to keep it turned on all the time and not use stand-by (great, no power save benefits). Otherwise a decent box. More: http://www.5wwwww5.com/maximum/index.php?mforum=maximum
