Very easy to set up like the SX-88 & Edision H265 unlike the previous generation of Linux these receivers do not have a steep learning curve & are very user friendly.

William is this receiver not that available in the UK? Most of the Google shopping related results came from Germany, Croatia amongst others.

Mine came from here :- Sat-Shop.co.uk | Official UK and Europe Web Store from Lavatroni

New firmware available online via the Ethernet for the A4K new version 1.0.39.
Updates this version:-
Google Play,
Clean Memory,
My TV (update your current settings),
After a satellite search the receiver stays on the satellite you are searching the previous versions used to go to All (A satellite at the start of the list)

Curious:
1) The A4 Combo seems to have been discontinued and replaced by the A5 Combo, which seems similar but with twice the flash memory - any thoughts about that one?
2) As well as having 4K o/p capability, can either of these receivers downscale UHD to HD (I have yet to buy a 4K TV or display!!)?

PS: neither Sat Shop UK nor WoS appear to be stocking any Amiko stuff at the moment.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

All UHD machinery (with an HDMI port) will provide the lower definitions.

Ah, I stand corrected. My aerial assistant has just mentioned Sky prevent downscaling of the Astra 4K transmissions to a 1080 tv with their Q system.


I haven't seen it myself but that is what he says.

Not planning to buy a Q system ANY time soon - so that's not an issue! :D

No I am currently using Octagon SX88-4K as it has a better blind scan & HEVC that you need for the UHD TV channels :) this is not available on the Amiko A4K :eek:

@william-1 do you still use the TM5502 even to this day ? do you use it for blind scanning or just for finding feeds using the spectrum analyser...?
