Mine will be here tomorrow so I'll be able to look for myself. Hopefully my OCD will be put to rest with the new driver in, but as you say if you are satisfied with the performance then no real need to go poking.
The bit that makes me paranoid is my H2S was pretty snappy until I loaded a big channel list on and hooked up my rotor. That's when it seemed to slow down, which I assumed was memory related rather than CPU. But I'll see it all for myself soon on the SF4008 enough [emoji5]️
I was going to post yesterday as I saw there was a kernel update released. I don't think they would try and stiff customers in that way on the memory. I just view it a bit like a bios update on a pc that reports the incorrect memory size.
So they have indeed just patched the memory reporting rather than enabled more ram. People on the Octagon site aren't happy...
I suspect what's actually happened is some of the RAM is allocated to the GPU, similar to how you configure a raspberry pi. My box seems to perform OK, but I'll probably get a usb3 pendrive for swap or something too.
Looks like there have been a number of driver updates recently which have added new bugs. Waiting on a new build of Vix to get the one with bug fixes in, although I'm contemplating switching back to ATV.
even with a slight memory difference, I haven't noticed any problems, mega quick fast box. I believe the box has its own type of memory clean up auto, which should take care of any issues. older boxes require something like cache flush to be used.
