I’m new here. Visited as a guest first, in the hope to find more info about the Ugoos X3. Didn’t find much, but while searching, I saw some threads, that refreshed my initial idea about a device with built-in DVBS2 tuners, that would run CE and so act as a TV receiver and a proper media player.
I saw these two being mentioned:
- Ferguson Ariva ATV Combo
- Mecool K1 Pro / KIII Pro / …
Maybe there are more.
Do I understand it correctly, that because of Android running on such devices originally, the DVB drivers are accessable, allowing to create CE builds, which support those built-in tuners and contain TVHeadend server and TVHeadend client, allowing to receive the signal from the tuners and to process/dispaly it - all in the same device?
If that’s correct: what do you guys think about such a solution? Is it reliable in both departments? (TV and media player, all from within CoreELEC without to need Android)
If so: what device would you suggest to use?
I know, mostly using a SAT>IP server like DigibitR1 etc. is being suggested, but somehow I’m not that comfortable with that idea (yet), so am thinking about a single box covering both areas.
