This Amiko model gets my vote for the best in its price bracket, for picture quality, functions, menu design and ease of use. For German and Spanish language channels, this is pretty much unbeatable for value.

The Organiser function ( top left on main menu ) is perfect and really easy to use, to save groups of channels as your favourites, then re-order the channels in each of your groups , just as you like them. Very intuitive, easy to use, correct any errors you may have entered.

For Turkish too, there are advantages, blind search on the 8150 will find all the many channels on the Turksat satellite, with their incredible variety of symbol rates , without any problems.

My only gripe, is that the encrypted and clear channels are not identified when you are storing favourites, so it's sometimes a little difficult to ensure you have the right ones.

Once you have all your channels grouped and sorted , always make a backup of the settings with the menu/system/upgrade function, onto a memory stick, its available then, to get back to full operation, if you ever accidentally delete any channel or satellite

Its possible to copy web-stream addresses (.m3u ) and create a simple text file, from which they can be loaded into the 8150 and easily watched from the menu. This simple function is quite impressive, for a box of this price.
