There are also details of two other Dr HD receivers on the link, Grand and Grand Triple (with three tuners). There is a good video about the Grand Triple.

...Hmmm
Being one of the biggest fans of the original F15 ..I will wait to see if there as any real advantage to the 'ahem upgraded' ..box ..
Sounds like the gimmick level has increased but what about performance ?
No interest in wifi dongles ..or multituner support..
For DXers the all important features such as gain - lock stability..broadcast dvbs format support and storage space are paramount.
When I bought the F15 the exceptional gain was what sold it to me..
not the built in games ..etc.
Sometimes Less is More..
We shall see.

well even this new model is not available now, i had a look on the irish seller link from the dr hd site and its out of stock.

yes the tuner gain and this spectrum analyser thing is what got my interest. i missed out on the f15 and now looks like i've missed out on the new model, unless its in really short supply at the moment.

I looked at this before deciding to go for the Grand Triple, and the only difference i can see is its a different CPU and the Tuners are the same as what are inside my Grand Triple so put all you F15 owners at ease Tuner sensitivity is exactly the same as the F15 no difference from what i can ascertain so far.

Also looking at the Specification it has lost the SD card reader and a USB port on the rear apart from that it pretty much identical, The speed has increased i noticed this with my Grand Triple over my F15 the scanning rate speed is incredibly fast, Blindscan is as the F15.

If you have the F15 stick with it Support is still there so why change

Hi,
Is there a manual available for this latest model, D15?
And one more thing. Does it support Ethernet connection using a wi-fi USB stick?
If so, does it have to be a particular manufacturer? A particular chipset?
Anyone know?

As regards GI dongles, maybe it is one of those:
gi.ua/en/catalogue?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=110&category_id=28
gi.ua/en/catalogue?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=127&category_id=28
I don't think they are available where I live, though. Do you know of any other brands?
If you remember where you saw the Russian manual, I would be greatful for letting me know.
Any more information on D15 would be much appreciated from all who have got something to do with this model.

It's missing a Scart socket! Useless to me as I need a decent RGB output for my Vulkano to stream...

As it only has one USB, I wonder if it would be possible to use an active USB hub in order to use a wi-fi USB dongle and a USB stick to record stream.
By the way, is recording to USB stick supported? Or does it have to be a decent USB HDD?
Because as I understand, it is not possible to accommodate an internal HDD?

I got one of these a few days ago great unit D15
I also have a Blade 7000
The one think that does not work is the 7 day EPG only now and next
I have been onto the factory about this who are trying to get it working
they have sent me a firmware for the F16 which will allow them to get the TP streams and sort this problem
but I dont have one of these units.

Hi,

Have read the various comments regarding the D15, can you tell me as there is no scart how I would connect it to my existing units, Panasonic TH-42PZ70B TV, TM 6902HD receiver, and a Panasonic DMR-EX78EB DVD recorder.

thanks

macx.
