Two 4 tuner receivers with XBMC support about to be released

If you are waiting for a quad tuner receiver with both E2 and XBMC support, the wait is almost over. Two such receivers are coming to the shops. Already available some places is the Mutant HD2400 E2 XBMC Linux Receiver which is sold for 379 € at ac-sat-corner.eu with 2 tuners.

Mutant HD 2400

The Mutant HD2400 E2 XBMC seems to be a Dutch OEM release and XBMC for the receiver is apparently not ready until November 2014.


In September the German release from Opticum, the AX Quadbox HD 2400 will  be sold. It is the same hardware in a different chassis. The Opticum release will also not have XBMC until November.
