I could bet that it gets too hot
I’d certainly also buy the heatsink and fan.
The whole idea was to cut out the “big” dbv-s2 receiver box and just have one small kodi box.
I have this receiver: https://www.amazon.de/AX-4K-BOX-2160p-2xDVB-S2-Receiver/dp/B01G461NTU
Got it new for € 70,-
I don’t think it has SAT > IP. It can run Kodi but last I checked I had problems like hevc playback etc…
On the box itself I tried different Images based on OpenPli like OpenATV but I wasn’t very happy with them: I put some time in it to set everything up, backed up image, backed up configs only to find out later that after an update it wouldn’t boot anymore. New flash and restore configs also ended in unbootable box.
Before the update there was even a prompt saying: “Old version detected, manual clean flash recommended” lol
Started over with another OpenPli based Image, after setting everything up again, I got a python error and now cannot reboot anymore, just can restart the Gui.
Can’t say much good about these enigma2/OpenPli/Open… Images.
But yeah, I guess I’ll keep my current setup for now. I got the S905x box for € 17,-. With your great work and CoreElec on it I can safely say that this is the electronic device with the most value for the money I own! It’s crazy how important good, dedicated software is.
Ok ok, this is getting very off topic, sry guys. I just have one last question:
Currently I use this Enigma2 plugin to get my channels to my S905X box.
Problem is, if the receiver isn’t running on Kodi start, the plugin throws an error and can’t find the channels.
Restarting plugin doesn’t help. … I don’t wanna have the receiver runnnig all the time.
So the question: What is the recommended way for live tv if you have Kodi and such a receiver? Or better said what would you guys recommend?
Have such a tvheadend server run on the receiver and on Kodi have some tvheadend client addon?
I never used tvheadend, after a quick research I decided that using the enigma2 addon is the easier way, since the receiver already runs open webif where you already can stream tv channels.
@Shoog I just saw now, that you didn’t mention a receiver, it is such SAT > IP server/converter and also smaller than my receiver. That certainly is an option
