Octagon just sent me these links, might help anyone if they want one, feel free to delete if not allowed?

Satking desktop:Octagon SX88+ CA HD HEVC Full HD Stalker IPTV Multistream Sat DVB-S2 Receiver
Satking mobile site: Octagon SX88+ CA HD HEVC Full HD Stalker IPTV Multistream Sat DVB-S2 Receiver - SatKing GmbH
Amazon Germany: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07BB4R6YR - Tried this and doesn't ship to UK as it's not from Amazon's warehouse, but I would
imagine more options will show over the next few days on that link as stock reaches other warehouses.

And the eBay item Lazarus posted is the same item number as what Octagon gave me, so that's legit.

I suspect it doesn't come with a 3pin plug for us in the UK?

Will come with an EU "Schuko" but you can get really good adapters, ones that screw on that a lot of things come with these days.

The last 3 receivers that I have bought come with this type of plug with the help of a screwdriver on the earth pin they work OK.

The DD+ is supported by the SX88 Plus.
The sound of French multistreams is here.
What is remarkable is the list of satellites that is in the original setting of the SX88 Plus.

Looking forward to your review ........ :Y
Credit where its due, it is a really good receiver, For those interested the French Multistream channels have a 5 day EPG handy if you like setting recordings. I'm still trying to workout how I can stream channels from the SX88+ to my PC via Kodi all the channels appear but for some reason don't want to play, maybe I'm missing some software? I've also compiled a list of bugs/improvements which I think would make the SX88+ an ever better box, some of them are miner but it would make life a lot easier.
