sorry I don't understand so I ask for your kind help:
I've an octagon 4008 connected to a sony 2016 tv (55x8508c): no problem with french multistream
what do I do with sx8 connected to the same tv?
thank you
best regards
Your TV has built in Dolby Digital+/AC3 etc so the TV will decode the audio signal not the satellite receiver, as long as you connect it with HDMI it should just work.

Octagon SX8 is the worst Linux receiver that I have ever bought.
It has no audio on the French multistream channels from 5°W.
There is only English sound on Animal Planet, Discovey and Science Europe from 0.8°W.
My Edision Primo has Bulgarian, Czech, Polish, Russian, Hungarian and Turkish audio on the same channels.
Primo parle français aussi, il n'est pas bête comme l'Octagon SX8.
The Octagon's remote is too small and with a very limited number of buttons, it's really uncomfortable too. The cables from all sides are a very bad solution.
For now, I use it in the kitchen mainly for the multistream channels from 39°E, but I may replace it with a second Primo, because of the lack of the languages mentioned above. I'm not keen of being a beta tester of Octagon's products because I don't speak German and I'm not able to comunicate on their forum. This little toy Octagon SX8 may be suitable for italian kids living outside Italy.

We must compare with receivers of the same price.
We don't compare a Fiat500 with an Audi Q5.
People still want to buy cheaper,
you have to know what you want.

How does the FTP works with Octagon SX8?
The FTP clients FileZilla under Linux Mint and WinSCP under Windows7 can not connect to the receiver.
Octagon is connected to the router ( 192.168.0.101) with it's password and YouTube works from Internet.
What am I missing ?

does anyone knows how to edit channel list via software? (also if this software is used for other gx chipset based receivers)
I just have a .bin file I don't know if it's editable...
otherwise I think I need to buy another receiver able to permit that (e.g. edision primo ip s2)

thank you in advance
best regards

People still want to buy cheaper,
you have to know what you want.
Let me clarify what I want.
I'm trying to motivate my 11-year-old son to learn English seriously.
I explain to him that if he knows English, he will be able to watch a lifetime for free many TV channels by satellite.
In our house we have 4 TVs in different rooms, 3 Fransat receivers with three valid cards, 3 Linux receivers and 5 dishes in the garden. We do not rely on multistream to watch french channels from 5°W. As you can see in the picture, I use 6 Quad LNBs. The role of the Linux receivers is to open the BISS, Irdeto2, PowerVu and the multistream channels in Italian, Greek, Russian and Bulgarian. But the Octagon fails with PowerVu for the audio in Russian and Bulgarian. Yes, I understand different European languages, my Belgian wife too. She even studies Chinese now. That's why I'm interested in satellite receivers.
I know about the existence of the Atlas200HD receiver and it's dongle, if I buy one, my son will only watch French TV because it will be easier for him. But, I want him to watch English channels in order to learn this language. He has its own computer with Acestream under Linux Mint connected to a 50" TV via a 7m HDMI cable. This way he can watch the channel "English club" from Internet.
Voilà, I just try to be a good father.
By the way, the previous Belgian queen had a car Fiat500. If she can have Fiat500, why should not I have a right to own one Octagon SX ?

And that's as far as discussion of such matters can go in this Forum, unless you are using valid subscriptions entitling access.
