Hi guys!

I've bought this decoder yesterday. I already knew that there was no support for it. 

Is there any chance in the future to see a official OpenPLI for SF8008?  ;) 

Thanks in advance for the reply!

We've been in discussion with Octagon for quite a while now. The ball is in their court, we're waiting for a working BSP so we can move on, but which they can't seem to produce.


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)

The Chinese developers seem to be to lazy to fix the BSP to our standard. And that has been reported to the reseller many months ago.
Mijn schotel is een T90 met 10 LNB's. Daarnaast voor de fun nog een draaibaar systeem met een Triax TD 78.

Dreamboxen heb ik niet meer. Verder nog een een VU+ duo2 met 500Gb harddisk + een VU+ Uno, Zero, Solo 4K, Ultimo 4K, Zero 4K, Uno 4Kse. + ook nog een Xtrend ET4000. Daarnaast heb ik ook nog diverse andere modellen w.o. een Formuler F4, ET8500, ET7500, Mut@nt 2400HD, Xsarius Fusion HD se en verder nog wel het e.e.a. waarmee op verzoek vanalles wordt getest. Iemand moet het tenslotte doen. ;) :)

Voor centrale opslag van media gebruik ik een Qnap 219P met tweemaal 2 Tb harddisks.

I prefer OpenPLi and use it on all my Vu+'s

But for my new SF8008, while waiting for an official OpenPLi release, I run the official OpenViX image which is the most similar to OpenPLi.

The most similar to OpenPli is SatdreamGR, which is openpli-based.

Now I'm using OpenATV on sf8008, but I'm sure that OpenPLI would be the best choice...!

And after SatDreamGr, Open Vision ;)

 

Users report Open Vision is stable on sf8008 but you need to compile a fresh image from our sources as we didn't release new images yet.

So I believe this is not enough to make SF8008 supported by OpenPLI: https://github.com/zhtq/meta-octagon

Maybe, maybe not.

 

We require the BSP to come from the manufacturer, including full (developer) support, and not from some unknown third party. If that were the case, we could make it ourselfs.

 

If they can't create a BSP, they will not have the expertise to provide proper support, in which case we're not even interested.

Ok, thanks for the reply.

I posted that link because it was posted by the "Octagon support" member on their forum, where there is a thread about future OpenPLI support.

Hi Jojoz,

 

The last time I had contact with ‘Octagon’, by heart I’d say ‘somewhere at the end of February 2019’, they appeared not capable to create a proper BSP. And as this is our main demand. So the answer is ‘I wouldn’t count on it’. But never say ‘never’.

The plugin needs a newer openembedded then Openpli uses. So it will probably not work on Openpli.

 

It's a Chromium browser build for Debian but they renamed on whatever reason.

 

On Openatv I have tried it on HD60 and Multibox and with some small adjustments it's working fine as well.

@Littlesat - as much their Marketing drives me up the wall, this is the best supported box (in my opinion) in the market - with continuous development and addition of features (how often do you hear that - usually its deliver, fix anything that doesn‘t cost money and move on)

- this popularity has nothing to do with Netflix.

They are often good at promoting add ons that have nothing to do with them (which is why I hate their Marketing) but overall a super 4K receiver.

....... and they obviously manage to do it without OpenPli.

Ow great I missed this branch ;)

I hope not with systemd as in sumo, this still need a lot of extra work in Enigma2.

 

Lets hope the warrior zeus will follow up soon ;)
