What I hate is how my Samsung box is incompatible with this update and any incoming updates. It's like Sky are like Apple, telling you to 'upgrade'
Well it's been the case since R011 and the writing was always on the wall when Sky started taking over the production of the boxes. Since discontinuing support for the older boxes they only have to maintain and enhance one firmware version, since it's shared between the 890/895 boxes.
Anyway you can get the supported boxes for peanuts second-hand and do a manual install yourself. The DRX890 is probably the best bet long term wise because they came with a 500Gb hard drive as standard but you can stick a 2Tb drive in them, but only 250Gb is reserved on the DRX890 for the Showtime/Pushed stuff, whereas if you got the later box with 2Tb as standard, you lose a quarter of the space for Showtime as opposed to 12% on the older box with the bigger drive.
