Sorry... but wth is this device! The one think is that it doesnt work with spaun diseqc switch, ok, i can use emp switch (not happy), it works, but the blindscan is parody... I use two dishes one with usals motor (Diseqc A) and second for C-Band (diseqC B ). An the funny blindscan scans on selected satellite, both LNBs not only the LNB written for selected satellite in setup! And of course, the C band with Ku Blindscan is a little bit strange... stupid!

were there realy so important changes in this 4 days? The box is new, i have to contact seller if i can change the sw without lost of warranty and be honest, i dont think that it helps. The SX88 has perfect fast and almost complet blindscan. 8008 blindscan has at my side this bug and it found for example on 26E about 100 channels less than sx88... slow and uncomplet blindscan. The Kodi and other multimedia parts of the box are ok, but the main part - satellite... i don´t know... will do some tests more

I tested blindscan on multifocus dish diseqc 8/1. Manual and auto search works ok. But blindscan realy not. My setup is LNB1 Input 1 39E, LNB2 Input 2 28.2E... and i blindscanned 28.2 and got Transponders for LNB1! See below. And no channels!? - So it seems blindscan doesn´t work (probably doesn´t send diseqc command at the start of searching (or send bad command). And before channel searching it sends righ command and i got no channels. Will phone seller tommorow and i will do up or downgrade...

Sorry Octagon-Germany, but it consume quite a lot of time (like my bug reports on Octagon SX88 -sorry, but your testers do bad job. I can do this job for you, write PM, if interested, will write more about myself...). And i only wanted have a nice gift for x-mass for my family...and now im sitting second day in front of pc and study your device :-D

Scopus, Thank You. It is positive information. Can you please look into Infromation screenof OpenATV and write the dates? I can check older builds of OpenATV 6.2... It can be problem for my box only, but the strange thing is that diseqC works normally on already scanned channels and with manual and auto search. It works ok. Only the blindscan does this problem...

I tend to go for the nightly updates, so mine will be the latest. Perhaps a complete reflash with the latest image might be the answer...

Also had to replace diseqc switch with another model (strange)
Forward/back is not working well in recordings or other media files and dvb-text is out of sync in recordings.
T-channel change is sometimes very slow to lock..
Everything else seems fine, OpenVix 5.2.19 (drv 2018-12-12)

Hi, accordingly my previous informations about bugs in Blindscan plugin i did on second 8008, that i changed from previous one, a lot of other tests, while on this second device i noticed just same behaviour like on the first one. But from shop i bought from, i had information, that on his side DiseqC worked... so it was strange and i need to do more detailed tests and results are:

Blindscan search:
1) Motor Usals - OK, works

2) DiseqC 1.0 switch 4/1 Mascom (ports A,B,C,D) - Ok, works

3) DiseqC 1.0 switch 4/1 Mascom (ports A,B,C,D)+USALS - Ok, works

4) Switch 8/1 EMP with DIP switch setuped as DiseqC 1.1 (Inputs 1-8) - Not OK - Works bad in range 10700-11700 (scans only port 1), Works ok in range 11700-12750 (scans all ports accrodingly selected bird)

5) Switch 8/1 EMP with DIP switch setuped as DiseqC 1.0 (A,B,C,D) + DiseqC 1.1 (Input 1,2)-Works ok for birds in ports A,B,C,D - input 1. Works bad for ABCD with Input 2 - still scans birds from Input 1!

6) Switch 8/1 EMP with DIP switch setuped as DiseqC 1.2 (Motor Commands) - Not OK. Scans only position 1.

7) DiseqC 2.0 switch Spaun 2/1 - Works bad in range 10700-11700 (scans only port 1), Works ok in range 11700-12750 (scans both ports accrodingly selected bird)

8) DiseqC 2.0 switch EMP 2/1 - Works bad in range 10700-11700 (scans only port 1), Works ok in range 11700-12750 (scans both ports accrodingly selected bird)

It seems that this Blindscan problem is with DiseqC 1.1!?

Already tuned programs switching:

1) -8) works ok! It means everything was correct setuped and and the DiseqC problem is only with Blindscan.

PLEASE: Can somebody who has 8008 and DiseqC 8/1 or 16/1 test the blindscan? It is necessary to check the results from scan, if founded transponders are correct from selected bird. Do the blindscan on other ports than port 1. If you want to do it quickly check only range 10700-11700,because only in this range i noticed blindscan problem.

Yes, thank you very much. I can test than.

And please look at diseqC 2.0 relays too (i have two realays 2.0 and both don´t work too). Only motor and diseqC 1.0. Thanks!

Btw. I read now Holyman issue again on DXtv.de | alle sonstigen Receiver-Typen | Octagon Sf8008 E2 4k Uhd and he had problem from the end of October, before was ok (so something was changed in this date). He used 1.0 (it works now at my side ok). I studied blindscan plugin.py today too, and i think that problem is not in this plugin? But may be could be fixed from this plugin with some diseqc refresh command on start of scanning...?? Dont know.
