    That's not an easy question.
    Let me in turn ask you a Question or Two.

    Not an easy Question that you are posing there.
    Let me ask you a Question (Or Two);
    How important is a PVR /DVR Function to you?
    Do you have any short-medium term plains for HD (or DVB-S2).

    The Dreambox runs on Linux and IIRC it can be made to fit a Laptop (2.5" HDD), inside it. Since it's Linux your not limited to using an External HDD via a FAT32 (<4Gib Max Filesize!).

    If this *Linux OS* is also true with the Clark? IDK

    As for the QBox, well that should be a Linux OS Receiver just like the Dream, I think you could modify it with a Laptop (2.5" HDD), as well but, I'm not 100% sure on that though.

    In any case the biggest difference between the QBox and Dream, is that the QBox has a built-in Daiblo CAM in it, this means that you ~should be able to~ receive S*xV**W, on 13.0E (et.al), and a few C*N*X Packages on 16.0E, 09.0E, and 08.0W. Which you could only currently open up with an updated Diablo (Rev 2.3), CAM

    Hi Ighijoe,
    thanks a lot for your clarifying reply!!
    I have to say that I don't really care to have PVR or DVR functions.
    I'm only looking for a satellite receiver that is "open" and make me able to install software or plugins easily!!
    I know there are on the market really good receiver but at this moment I don't want spend too much money because, I'm a software specialist, but I'm new in the satellite transmissions field!!
    If you know other type of good receiver I'll be happy to listen your advice!!
    Bye.
