When we’re talking about Enigma in the context of “Set Top Boxes” (STBs), we’re talking about a Linux-based operating system for satellite receivers (DVB-S), cable receivers (DVB-C) or terrestrial receivers (DVB-T).
Main differences between Enigma1 and Enigma2:
- CPU type: PPC – MIPS
- Supported Number of tuners: 1 – 4
- Can deal with HDTV: No – Yes
- Onscreen GUI supports HD GUI overlay: No – Yes
- Programmed in: “C” – “Python“
Enigma is mainly used on Dreambox receivers but has been ported to other receivers as an alternative OS.
