Hi

 

 

I am using now vu+ duo for IPTV. I am very happy with openpli image for IPTV. It is very stable and smooth.

 

I want to buy a new box . My VU+ Duo is not able to stream high quality movies. It hangs. There is not enough memory.

 

However I don't need a satellite or cable tuner. I want to use a receiver with Openpli image only for IPTV. 

 

I am thinking to buy VU+ Solo 4K however it does not make sense to pay 350 Euro for Tuners that I don't use.

 

is there some box  that i can use that does not have any tuners at all ? 

 

It needs enough memory and CPU and should be able to handle 4K.

Not one that we support. The only one was the zgemma i55, but that is a simple entry-level box.


Currently in use: VU+Duo 4K (2xFBC S2), Amiko Viper T2C (T2), SAB Alpha Triple HD (S2+T2), Zgemma H3.T2C (T/C), Zgemma H6 (fallback), VU+Zero (fallback)

Which IPTV provider and which 'quality movie stream' provider is offering legal services to run legally on an enigma2 based receiver ?

 

And if they excist, my guess is that they have a customer support that can advice which box to purchase ti use with their offered services.

Hi,

 

STBs are not real multi media players so this is quite a non sense to purchase a STB just for IPTV.

Purchase any chinese Android TV box you will get them for a cheap price and they will be perfect for what you are trying to do and you will be able to also properly run Kodi if you like it.

I guess that your IPTV provider has an Android or Kodi application to run its service and you will get more feature than using a STB.

Hi,  Thank you all for your reply. 

 

I have experience with these products:

 

My provider sold me the subscription with android box  Q-BOX 16GB. Remote control was not very intuitive and slow and my hand started to hurt. Switching between bouquets was really annoying and slow.  (tried multiple android applications without any Luck. GSE IPTV, Perfect Player IPTV , simple IPTV client  etc  )

 

Also tried MXQ Pro Android Tv Box 4K. same as Qbox. really slow and does not play  "avi" streams and was not able to stream some 4K movies.

 

another 2 reasons why android box was not a success. EPG was not working for all channels  also ssh to the box is not working.

 

My provider has also Mag250 which does not support 4K.

 

That is why I tried My VU+ duo and to my surprise I had really great experience. Remote control is smooth.  I have installed Rytec XML TV and now I have EPG for almost all channels   (only recording is not working and EPG for Arabic channels is nowhere to find.)

 

 

Even though openpli is not really an IPTV box, I have the best experience with it now. I think I am going to buy this one.   VU+ Uno 4K

If you're not interested in tuners, the VU+ Zero 4K might be better value.

I use zgemma i55 with OpenPli just for streaming and it works without a hitch.
Very nice little machine that does it work and never needed a reboot.
The only ugly thing is the remote control but you could probably buy a better one if needed. It is really small as well and I have hidden it behind the telly so it's practically invisible.

I would highly recommend it as a slave for example to my Ultimo 4K or Uno 4K.

Cheers

I use a Vu Zero for that purpose. It comes with an IR extender zo it is easy to hide behind the TV.

WOW, does it come with the extender as default or is it an extra thing you'll have to buy?
