How we rate the receivers
Here at Linux-TV.com we give a Overall Rating Score for all our reviews. This rating given is a number out of 100%. Our rating score is based on our combined experience while testing the unit.
We look at rating elements like:
- Design and Connectivity – A look at the general design and front display, card readers and ci slots and the connections the receiver offers.
- Ease of use – How is it to use. Things like boot speed, zapping speed,installation, updating, remote control usage are considered.
- Technology – Includes CPU speed, Multimedia support, Hbb-TV support, Picture in Picture HD support, Pluggable Tuner support.
We rate every product category (single.twin,triple,quad) on its own. So it is possible for a single tuner receiver to get a higher rating than a twin tuner receiver.
The review is usually made during a period of 1 – 3 weeks where we have access to the receiver. For some reviews we may have the review unit for a longer period and are able to update the review to better reflect the evolution of the software and drivers.
