Guys,

I am looking to buy a reasonably price receiver for UK cable, 28E, 16E and 19E. What combo box do you think is best?

I was thinking OCTAGON SF8008 or Edision OS mio. I really need something with a decent DVB-C tuner. I previously have a Vu+ Solo2 with a USB DVB-C tuner, it was great when I only used it for satellite. However, it was continually crashing and in the end I offloaded it.

OCTAGON SF8008 4K UHD Linux Enigma 2 2160p H.265 HEVC Dual Wifi Multi-Stream DVB-S2X & DVB-C/T2 Combo Receiver

Edision OS mio 4K UHD Grey 1x DVB-S2X + 1x DVB-C/T2 Linux Enigma 2 Combo Tuner Digital Multi-Stream Receiver H.265 HEVC UHD PVR

Any views would be much appreciated.

for me zgemma h9 twin is the best stb in the year 2019....the best Linux stb PRICE range wise...above all in this range no other LInux and multi operting stb... HEVC 4K...quadcore processor...dual wifi antenna...Tuner is really awesome which must be a quality of a stb...hyper sensitivity of its tuner makes it a master box...it is really a gift for all those sat trackers who are fond of tracking out of coverage satellites...recommended....

There is no blind scan with Opena.tv 6.3
My Mio 4K does not show any signal level for DVB-T2 channels from Germany and France (DVB-T), but finds them all. Some of them are very weak and I use an amplifier. For the belgian (DVB-T) channels I see the correct level before scanning.
I use toys like this one:

For satellite channels you have to download a plugin outside the official openatv's repository, but it is easy to find and comes with very good list of ... you know what, don't you ;)
It seems to have auto update that works fine so far.

Does this box do T2-MI transponders natively (without astra-sm)?

Inspired by this post I acquired an H9S and am quite pleased except for one thing. If I try to set it to 2160p and auto resolution disabled the screen goes blank and my AV unit reports "decoder off". After a while it sets itself back to 1080i and the picture returns.
I can see the 4K demos in 2160p if i use auto resolution but don't like the consequent long delays on channel change.
Am I not allowed to set 2160p permanently?

As I mentioned above my TV does support 2160 24Hz, 25Hz, 30Hz,50Hz,60Hz
. Further research today suggests that I might have to set a lower fps than the 50/60 hz available on the menu possibly because of my AV amp.
This is what I found "Forcing the mode using "echo 2160p25 > /proc/stb/video/videomode" works and I can confirm the t.v has switched resolution and is displaying fine,"

Edit. I think I'm on the right track. Now watching the 4K demo at 2160 24HZ. Just have to find the right settings to retain control.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Strange, the AV amp isn't in your profile.

What brand / model is it ?

It was never important before.
Yamaha HTR-2067
Checked the specs and there we are "- 4K/30 Hz, 25 Hz, 24 Hz"
