I'm deciding between these two.sacthegreat666 wrote: ↑ I got a BuzzTV XPL 3000 also in addition to the Formuler Z7+ that I already had.
I was impressed with the BuzzTv for a day. The UI was different and good. (Not better than formuler. It was just different)
But later, I felt the channel changes were a little slow in BuzzTV. Also the EPG was a little slow to load in BuzzTv.
I had the same IPTV service on both the boxes. And this would take a good 1-2 seconds to change to next channel. But with Formuler, it was instantaneous. I will be returning the BuzzTV and ordering another Formuler now.
For any considering the Shield TV, I tried on this also using the STB Emulator app. It was very very similar, but the colour was slightly washed out in Shield. (Slightly - I mean really really slightly). Also the app was not allowing me to fastforward VOD. This prompted me to use a dedicated box instead.
lol... As I am replying in this thread, I am thinking why not use Shield TV itself for IPTV! I think I will experiment with Perfect Player and check once before going for one more Formuler!
The buzz definitely has the better UI and nicer looking EPG. Was the channel changing noticeably slow or is it only because you have the z7+ right there to compare it?
