I think you're correct about it being targetted for US market. Dual tuner and SCART aren't needed for most people.
If it can decode everything like the ELITE/PREMIUM and has hardware blindscan its at the top of my list.
Actually, I'm starting to think that it might be a low end US version of the PLUS. Reason is that looking at some of the specs, I see a few specs that appear in the ULTRA and the PLUS. Really pretty hard to tell though. I do like the USB in the front though.
I've sent an email again and will post whatever response I receive. I saw the posts from Rick on his forum and agree something doesn't make sense. Not sure why anyone would pay more for the Ultra over the Elite if it has no advantage, unless you are allergic to a SCART connector. I would invite anyone who's interested to also send an email and ask as well.
Can you tell me if the new Azbox HD ULTRA satellite receiver has hardware blindscan like the PREMIUM + or if it has software blindscan like the PREMIUM/ELITE? A few people are reporting that they are receiving information from AZBOX that the ULTRA has software blindscan. Can you help clarify this issue regarding the ULTRA blindscan capabilities?
