    You are right faster menu display or faster channel switching is supposed to be basic thing and it should be provided. I would like to go for Wireless network or STB should have support for Wi-Fi network. It should be able to work on all kind of the video format with 1 TB memory.

    To have torrent support is totally useless and there is no need to implement that.

    I will also go for wireless network as it will save lots of time and cost for me. internet connection with STB will give you number of options as Internet TV has become quite cheaper. You will be able to share the Program listings with your friend and many Internet TV will have support for video calling through Skype.

    Apart from the above mentioned things it will be great if they have provided media player add-on for STB. It should provide best multimedia experience to the end users. i would also like to have Wireless network support since by using that we will be able to connect with internet as well.

    I think to have torrent support would be great idea but I donít think so it is possible since it could cause copyright issues.

    If possible please give me IPTV. Another thing, STB should be universal that means you should simply change the card in order to change the service provider. It will simply reduce the E-Waste.

    What is your opinion if STB would work as Wi-Fi router? If it gets happens we will be able to do Streaming from the computer. Wireless streaming between STB and Antenna and it will save lots of wire clutter. also i am hoping that it will provide support for IPTV and Video on Demand since people are searching lots of videos on the internet.
