What is on 16APSK and why should I care?  I haven't been paying too much attention to the thread that discusses it, but you folks make it sound like a deal breaker.  Just how many sats are transmitting that modulation and why kind of programming is on these transponders?

I just wanted the forum to know that Manhattan will have a 4K triple play box out later this summer. We just got the new chipsets approved. This will also be in an IP/ATSC configuration as well. 

We have been using an older chipset to test and work on the SW. Which is very extensive to match-up. We are getting very close to completing the SW and the chipset has just been released. It was delayed over 6 months. 

This chipset will support
Dolby ATMOS,
USB 3.0 
802.11 a/c
Bluetooth
Several different remotes including air remotes. 
Android
3500 IPTV channels and we have over 2000 loaded.
13k satellite channels. We can increase this number if needed. 
Will have KODI loaded. waiting for 4.2.2 from Kodi or we can perform our own SW for this. 

These are just some of the features for this unit. 

A question to the board. The model name. Any suggestions of a person in the industry to dedicate this too. We welcome your suggestions. 

We are very excited about this unit and look forward bring this unit out for people who are looking for an all in one box at a high level. 

Regards,

Jeff Schumann

Jeff, I'm hoping 16APSK reception is in the specs?

And the standard servo (3 wires) polarization control as Pansat Linkbox 9500HDX.

As noted above, 16APSK has become a 'must have' IMO. Also 10-bit High Dynamic Range UHD, and an ethernet port (not just 80211 WiFi).

I would add a gigabit Ethernet port, fast Ethernet doesn't cut it anymore.  Also USB 3.0.

Guys,

Thank you for your response on this. Great suggestions and must haves!

USB 3.0 is a given. But you have to think about your situation on USB recording. Because 3.0 will not play on 2.0 devices. So be careful how you record. But it will have at least one 3.0 port. We could have two. We thought about this a great deal and think one is appropriate at this time. Let me know your thoughts as well. 

Currently we are using an 8bit unit to test and get the SW in order. It plays the NASA Channel brilliantly. Even on a 1080p TV and a 4K TV is fantastic. That is in UHD not 4K as it chokes on the 4K programming. 

The Gigabyte input, let me check on this for you. It makes sense. Ethernet port is a given. It will have a built in antenna for short range and then you can add an antenna for longer ranges. 

16 APSK & 32 are a given. The tuners in this earlier version kick! I think Rick can verify this as well. Both the S2 and ATSC tuners have not missed anything according to the BETA guys along with Mike & Myself. Same with IPTV, we see no format issues on this unit. 

I'm off to meet with TPC and get this 4DTV situation resolved. The service is not going away, just moving to 256 quam. Arris is being a pain in the rear over getting us new hardware. Doing everything we can to get the hardware to keep this going. 

Thank you for your support. Greatly appreciated!!!

Hopefully the new chipset will not choke on the 4k.

I would also like to know if it would be able to pick up the Music Choice channels on 125W that are in ACM? Those are located at 125W 4140 V 30000  3/4  S2/8PSK.

Have you tried recording anything in 16APSK ? Like over on 97W and if so has the recording been ok with no problems?

I have heard with some earlier Manhattans this was an issue and I would like to know if this receiver will blind-scan by polarity? So if I wanted to scan a satellite only on Vertical polarity it would do so.

Thanks.

This new unit sounds very promising. If it has a reliable ATSC guide for recording and the ability to playback TS, MP4 and AVI files this will be the all in one unit I've been waiting years for to replace my pc based unit. [biggrin] Also the second USB port would be great to have the dedicated media drive on.

I've never quite understood the difference between "UHD" and "4K" since most advertising seems to consider them to be the same.
  The only specific definition I could find that is different for the two is that 4K is supposed to be at least 4096x2160 while UHD is apparently defined as at least 3840x2160.  Ie UHD would seem to include the 4K resolutions, but the 3840x2160 apparently isn't true 4K.   On the other hand, the above definition I found also indicated that true 4K must also have 12 bit 4.4.4 color.
   So I'm kind of curious re what 4K programming did the receiver choke on? I haven't seen any examples of 12 bit 4.4.4 content on satellite.  I've seen both 8 and 10 bit on satellite, but I think they were 4.2.0 and 3840x 2160.
   Anyway, where did you find the 4K content that choked the receiver?  Just curious.

I just wanted to update you on the 4K box.

There will be a gigabyte Ethernet connection.
The Wi-Fi will be dual band.

I wanted to ask the forum on the number of USB ports.

The factory came back and said they want 2 USB 3.0 and 2 2.0 ports.
I would rather have 1 3.0 and 3 2.0 at this time. The reason is why would you want more than one 3.0 at this time since most of your devices can only handle 2.0. It is not backwards compatible.

The reason for so many ports is that when you have a wireless keyboard, camera with mic, these take-up two ports from the start. So that leave two ports for recording.

Let me know your thoughts on this.

We will be adding a micro SD card reader with the standard SD card reader. With new phones today, they are incorporating the micro in the phone. Although I'm not a fan of such a small device. We think it would be convenient if this was included since this is a multi-media player as well.

More surprises to come.

Regards,

Jeff Schumann

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
