    VU+ Upgrade to HVEC Any recommendations?

    Hi All

    Looking to upgrade my vu+ duo2 to another box which is capable of playing iptv / hvec and hopefully using the openvix gui, anyone have any recommendations.
    Thanks

    I would look at the Mut@nt HD51.
    Also take a look at the new Octagon SF8008 which looks really really promising.

    An OpenViX image will be available once Devs are happy with everything and release it. No time frame as yet, but shouldn’t be too long I imagine.
    Yeah plugins will be available just like the Vu+, so you should be good to go!

    current vu+ has internal hard drive 2 dvb inputs for recording would like the same kind of setup.
    looking at google the specs are the same apart from the 4008 can have internal hd and extra dvb.
    Just checking that im not missing major difference between the two.
    Thanks

    sf8008 has fixed DVB-S2X & DVB-C/T2 tuners, sf4008 has more choice.

    Kodi is Hardware as apposed to Software based. Stalker plugin for IPTV, can’t confirm if Stalker is available for SF4008.
    You are limited to what you can get with a budget of £200.
