That's what I was going to ask if the box got hot or ran cool unlike my vantage x221 which can lockup if it's been on a while.

the main pcb looks a little small or is that how they are these days ?

Yep ...thats all they need to be Wod..
Dedicated integral decode and graphics chip ...with a single block heatsink ...and best of all ..no noisy fan ...
..and it still runs cool..

As you may have guessed ..
I luv my F15..
If they supercede it with another ..
I just hope they have the good sense to make it equally high gain ..or better

well a twin tuner model with hard disc features would be ideal and hardware blind scan.

I think there would be a market for a serious satellite receiver with all the good features of the f15 and more but no one seems to be interested.

what colour is the front led of the f15 because i've had enough of the bright blue used on some boxes.

There's a red standby LED (not too bright) and green channel numbers/time. You can switch off the time displayed on the front when in standby (energy saving, apparently).

Lacking the Twin tuner of course ...but the F15 does have hardware blind scan ...and you can connect an external usb hard drive ..fully controlled from the receiver.
What IS missing from the current design is ability to handle 4:2:0 and 4:2:2..
I was surprised at this ..because the receiver is touted as an enthusiats receiver aimed to some extent at dxers.
And they need to make it possible to store more that 65 sat positions.
Fixable in firmware I guess ..but only on usals ..I assume not possible with diseqc 1.2.
They got soooo close to the perfect box ..but missed .
I've said it before ...they should ask the customer what they want ...what they are prepared to pay ...then go away and build it..

If they build it ...they will come..

Yes, add 4:2:2 and the tuner from the TBS6925 card and you have a killer box.
