    My other 4k box has no blind scan last time I checked, the above box has blind scan also does dvb-t and Kodi/iptv should be a nice solution for my needs, shame it doesn't do S2X/4.2.2 but I have other equipment that does,

    It should be with me by the end of the week I will give a run down on it when ive had a play £75 not a bad price for a 4k receiver with blind scan.

    one important tip to do as with so many boxes and other things with power supplies is mixing them up when putting in a drawer,use a white marker and write what its for then no miss match of power supplies when you go bad sighted.

    I had a little play with it last night S, its a bit buggy in places as expected with a new box, plugged it in set wifi and got a OTA firmware upgrade straight away blind scan appears ok will do more tests later tonight, I'm going to report the bugs ive found so far on the china forum hopefully they will be dealt with in the coming upgrades,

    Ill set it at the side of another box that's got a sensitive tuner and do some test and report back on sensitivity.
