    Not 100% sure but it seems SF4008 can show 27.5W image only using bbc script long mode. If somebody can test it and need details ask me and i can help.
    OE-A images no longer need the script for 27.5w, incorporated are the changes implemented by the SDG team, working without script on my SF4008.

    Parameters C:2600,f:400 just need to be added to all the channels using DBedit.

    What this no script exactly means, is it working like short mode or like long mode?
    If somebody can test it pelase try how it is. If it's like short mode then You can record multiple 27.5W channels same time or watch other tuner channel same time. Also 27.5W recording is working when tuner is in standby.

    Tested 27.5W without dvbsnoop and bbc skript. After lamedb changes it's working like "short mode".
    Can somebody confirm is it possible to record multiple channels same time with octacon sf4008 or vu solo 4k tuners?

    I tested for you and was able to record 4 channels simultaneously without issue (couldn't see the point in trying to record more).

    Also no problem recording in standby.

    Very poor support for extra tuners tbh, evidently they haven't implemented vtuners yet, seems they prefer to put their development time to implement unnecessary and waste of time Kodi !

    Only Sundtek USB tuners work but there isn't the abilty to watch one channel and record another, the recording stops after a few seconds so pointless really.

    Also ABM can't use these USB tuners and yet for some reason always chooses the Sundtek tuner to scan even though internal tuners are available.

    They above problems don't exist on the HD51.

    My solution for extra tuners for time being is to use a TM nano combo box which was sat here unused with fallback setup for extra DVB-S2 and DVB-C tuners

    Other USB tuners such as the DVBsky or PCTV 292e are broken in E2 since ViX 5.0.002 and other images I have tried and it seems the problem originates from Pli and they're not interested in fixing it although the DVBsky will work on the HD51 if using the USB3 port.

    If the new HD51 tuners turn out to be as capable as the SF4008 tuners (multistream and DVB-S2X) I will switch to that.

    My testing was done 3 or 4 weeks ago now so things might have changed but I don't intend to spend anymore time on it.

    Ok thanks...at the moment i got HD51 with DVB-S2 and DVB-T2 internal tuners + DVBSKY T330 stick in USB3.0 port.
    It seems i continue with this tuner for some time.

    Is somebody tested DVB-T2 tuner in slot A, is it really twin tuner if it's in slot A or no?

    Both have been good with support, Mut@nt more low key but have delivered 1st, Octagon have been promising more functionality and are extremely visable (like Kodi for Easter!) but still waiting.......

    Very difficult to choose between them. I use Octagon as my lounge receiver (in 1080P mode), HD51 as my test receiver (because of multiboot) (in 2160 mode) but picture wise nothing in it ... both excellent.
    I am stuck on which one of these to chose. At first i thought this thread would help, now it's thrown up more to think about

    Both are good boxes and both provide excellent picture on 1080 and 2160.
    Based on Octagon's initial "promises", if they haven't provided Kodi by the end of the month, I would go with the HD51.
    Reason: Mutl@nt have been very quiet but have delivered. Octagon have been very strong on the marketing, but have not delivered their promises (my view).
