    Good for Gemini software.

    posted by Gioxannes on 11/27/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Easy to flash with Gemini software for key sharing. There is a lot of software available for this box. With Picture in Picture (PiP) it is capable of viewing 2 channels at the same time!
    Cons:
    Although there is a slot there is no card reader inside the box. It won't do high definition decoding, but I don't need that.
