Hello guys, i'm on OpenVix.

I connected this tuner and in tuner config on vix its showing as DVB-S2.

I'm trying to set up on 28.2E.

How do i get it to work as DVB-S2X can someone help or advice if i need to do anything?

It displays as: Tuner A Si2166D (DVB-S2)

Thanks.

Multistream channels exists on Eutelsat 5 West (France and Italian Channels) and Eutelsat 12 West (Italian Channels). And a few other satellites
There is none on 28.2
And yes it should show up as (DVB-S2X) in Tuner Configuration

It is not as clear cut as that. For example, the TBS 5925 does not say "S2-X"but it can receive the services. I don't have the receiver so cannot confirm what it should say.

Google ' Si2166D (DVB-S2) ' you will find some interesting reading, then decide what you have.

Edit ] Ihave just ordered this ' Octagon SF4008 DVB-S/S2/S2X Twin Satellite Tuner Module ' If it does not report itself as such it will be returned.
