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.

Een Dreambox DM 800-SE Verder nog een een VU+ duo met 500Gb harddisk + een VU+ Uno. + ook nog een Xtrend ET4000 en een Vu+ Zero erbij. Inmiddels heb ik ook nog een VU+ Duo2 erbij, een Vu+ Solo 4K, een Formuler F4, Xtrend ET10000, ET8500, ET7500, Mut@nt 2400HD, Xsarius Fusion HD se en nog het e.e.a.

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.

Anyway there isn't yet a stable SatDreamGr image for SF8008, only images under development...;)

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.
