    Most new boxes have problems on first release but they're usually resolved quite quickly... apart from the 8500 lol

    There is only OpenATV and Open8eight at the moment. It's an Arm processor so uses oscam.
    Only had limited time with it but it's a winner so far. From power on to up and running in 20 seconds!... insane!

    Not yet havent tried, only had 1 hr so far, just going through the menus, did the service scan and ran the Abm. Just need to convert the nline. Will have a play after finish work. Like the image though, they work closely or are linked to openatv?

    I tried the second one and it installed ok but no sign of a softcam manager.
    Hopefully the openeight one will work.

    My Tech knowledge would be seriously tested if I brought now.

    By the sound of things I think I will defo wait for Openvix image.

    If I went with VM only whats the max number of recordings possible if I was watching 1 live channel?

    Think I read somewhere you can have upto a possible seven tuners but the unit can only use a max of 3..which I think means 1 to watch live and record 2?

    Don't get me wrong that's good but is that right?

    im using vm only and went for the 1 x twin / dual dvb-c so you can watch one and record another, that's really all I need. Yes you can have the extra tuner but do you need it?
    the factory openeight image is ok but you need to have a fairly good amount of knowledge behind you in terms of setting up the box. There's no software manager, until you load the right .ipk files to get oscam configured. its quite tricky.
    Just download Willo`s new build for this model. I ran out of time but it works and is very plug and play user friendly with a few tweaks here n there. oscam is there by default. Thanks Willo Great Job :thumbsup:

    Yeah there's some really good tools on that site. I found a universal softcam 4K ARM boxes. Installed the ipk and selected oscam_atv 1.2 11353 worked first time on openatv 5.3.
