    IPTV Recommendations for MB Mini

    Hello

    I would like to convert my Miraclebox MINI to a dedicated IPTV Streamer. I tried to download the plugin, but was disappointed by the performance.

    Looking for recommendations please.

    thanks

    Try Suls plugin. Your provider needs to support it mind.

    Is there any point of buying a separate IPTV box, or can my MB do the job?

    thanks

    I would not use the word flawlessly as there’s no such thing as a flawless device, but I’d suggest the Octagon SF8008.

    Fair point. Currently when I used my IPTV plugin, the system goes for a long long walk....... That's why I asked.

    thanks

    The old mb mini is very old tech, single core 750mhz cpu.

    SF8008 is UHD 4K quad core 1.6ghz. Will be like a Ferrari compared to the mb mini.

    Sorry for any daft question. The IPTV part in the Octagon SF8008, is a plugin or it launches like a separate OS?

    The is a Stalker plugin or there’s other ways to add iptv. Others might be able to give more advice.

    The SF8008 is an excellent single tuner receiver (1x Satellite & 1x Cable/Terrestrial). Also added bonus of the Stalker plugin for IPTV. Also has Hardware Kodi support too.

    Can the user swap between IPTV and Satellite on a fly? Sorry never used hybrid boxes before.

    If your provider allows to use Suls, then that creates Bouquets for you so your Satellite channels and IPTV channels are together. The Stalker is an application, a bit like Kodi where you have to launch it operate. Hope this helps.

    Anyone with screenshot of the IPTV section of the SF8008 please?
    I saw MAG 251 and quite liked it.

    For simplicity I would opt for a MAG.
