Interestingly when you update from the Octagon site, the sw contains no PVR function, but from another site it does!!

A sample in C Band with Blindscan to 40 ° East (I'm only with 1.20 antenna).
There are also multistream found in T2MI.
No problem with the SX8, just with a little trick. (even 54 frequencies are found)
First: make a blindscan in blindscan mode (not blindscan multistream) He finds all transponders but not the programs that are in MIS or T2MI.
Second: scan all found transponders and there he really finds all programs
.Why is it? No idea . Octagon SX8 HD ONE (aka Mini or Magic)_1046528

Because it would take tons of time to scan each frequency with the so-called "blindscan" parameters since the table it uses for its virtual MIS/T2-MI discovery is getting larger and larger....

Could do with Octagon correcting the amount digits on display on the info bar for symbol rates. It will only display four when actually it is 29900. Bottom right on my picture. Octagon SX8 HD ONE (aka Mini or Magic)_1046731

I really don't understand why folk get so concerned about the occasionally missing zero. It really is nothing.

I know it is not a big issue, but if it can be corrected, why not?

It's easier to correct things on the SX88/+ as that's Linux and software based. The SX8 HD is chipset based and limited to what they can adjust in firmware.

Well it is is the Sony TV that is at fault. tried on a Toshiba and perfect sound on the French Multistream channels.
I've octagon 4008 connected to a 2016 sony bravia tv. french multistream audio is ok
octagon sx8 connected to the same tv with the same hdmi cable gives no audio on french multistream channels. (I've tried on 2017 philips tv also - same issue)
what's wrong?

then I've freezing on some french multistream like L'Equipe tv despite of 14,2 db and no problem on octagon 4008

thank you in advance best regards

The SX8 doesn't support Dolby D+

You need the SX88+ for that.

No.

The SX8 HD ONE is the SX8 you referred to in the post I replied to.

It is referred to variously as SX8, SX8 HD ONE, SX88 Mini or SX88 Magic, but it's the same device.

But if your TV is DD+ capable, it shouldn't matter which receiver you use.

Edit: @RustySpoons Snap!
