    though I dont own them yet, Dreambox, and Humax should be the best if you know how to go through them.
    soon I will be buying the two.

    personal opinion depends on what you want to do also.
    they seem to have all the updates and softwares in any part of the www world.

    Dreambox 7020S is the latest model
    Humax users may give you more support as this STB is most common in Europe

    What makes Dreambox better than all other receiver is that it is "A computer inside a satellite receiver", based on IBM processor and Linux operating system, even equipped with a Hard disk.

    They provide their own reciever, I Live in the Middle East, and able to receive the signal on NSS6 95 East. I can buy the package(dish+receiver+card), but I don't know customs will allow me to bring the receiver here?

    tell them to send it via courier like DHL or FedEx, you can ask these companies for the customs and duty tax as they know it, if any.

    I think the latest for Dreambox is 7025 with two tuners. other options with similar features but aggresively priced is the TripleDragon.
