Hi Jeff,

For me and the vast majority of my customers, we want a well built Quality unit that works best as a satellite receiver.  One that can play the most of the different signals that we have available here in N. America.

Then the various other features.  If it does not take away from processor speed and does not effect signal sensitive or blind scanning, then 1 - 3.0 USB port and 3 - 2.0 USB ports.

But again, I would gladly give up some USB ports, if the unit can play and record all of the various satellite signals.

Thanks,

Rick

yup..there is already plenty of "media tanks" out there and plenty more to come.

+1 on the servo..all chipsets have pwm's..should be trivial.

btw what is the chipset?

I think 2x3.0 and 2x2.0 is better than what you propose.  Can someone use a hub with the 2.0 ports?

I don't believe that I have had any issues using 2.0 devices in a 3.0 port, but I haven't done much testing with that.

  I use 2.0 devices in 3.0 ports all the time, and have never noticed any difference. In fact, I had forgotten which were which.  The only issue I've run into has been that recently I've been using one of my 3.0 ports on my laptop for the little wireless plug for my mouse.  It works fine usually, but I found that if I play video from an external hard drive in the other 3.0 port, that my mouse gets very sluggish, whereas if I plug the mouse thing into what I think is a 1.0 port (used mainly for charging), that the mouse works fine while playing video. 
   But I'm having a hard time figuring out why one would need more than one 3.0 port, and more than two ports total.  I have 2 or 3 receivers with two USB ports, and I think that only once have I had more than one device plugged in at the same time.  This makes me think that this receiver (and maybe other receivers that are newer than the ones I have) might use USB ports for things that I don't know about.  Ie, the only uses I can think of are perhaps using one for a mouse/keyboard and one for an external hard drive, with maybe a third for a thumb drive.  I assume that I'm behind the times relative to USB uses.
   So my question is, what other USB functions can these USB ports be used for, and which of those, besides an external hard drive would need a 3.0 port?
   Just curious.

An example of 2 USB 3.0: 1 for flash backup and one for SSD.

Many questions to respond too.

One person had a question of what you would use all the USB ports. Yes, since you can run Google Chrome on these units, one would may want Skype, and wireless keyboard and mouse as well.

Then use the rest for storage or copy files.

The other question or yes you can use USB 2.0 on 3.0, but you cannot the other way around.

The flash and record for USB 3.0 is understandable for larger storage capabilities. But understand then you have to use a USB 3.0 port to play them back it has to be on a USB 3.0 device. I think we will keep the one USB 3.0 which will be on the side of the box.

Waiting for SW changes for demo units we are using and KODI 16 version 2 to come. Looking at end of August release for this unit.

This unit have rocked on the scan and blind scan very well. The tuner is the best we have seen on the market and uses a Korean made tuner along with the ATSC side as well. Mike Kohl is getting Low powered stations on the demo unit and this over 70 miles away. We have not seen any issues there. It really comes down to SW and making sure with all these medias inside they don't conflict with each-other. The Beta guys have done an excellent job at going through and identifying the issues we still need to resolve. Which the SW engineers are working on.

Price, it will retail for over $200.00, but we hope to keep the cost under that. The residuals we pay for each box is very heavy in H-265.

Anything else you need know, let me know.

Thank you for your interest and support.

Regards,

Jeff Schumann

I'd like to suggest dedicating the model name for this receiver after the guy that has brought so much to the industry of FTA, Rick Caylor.  Without Rick, we wouldn't have this site and the great people he's brought together to share their vast knowledge and support, not to mention all of the great products he offers us such as the Manhattan receivers.

What does everyone think?

Thanks for the kind words.  But have to give props to Jeff Schumann for continuing all of his efforts to bringing units to us in N. America that are being hand tailored for N. America.  Takes a lot of time, effort and money to make that happen.

Happy 4th to all who visit here!

All new computers are being delivered with USB 3.0 ports.  I don't understand the concern here.

My Vu+ receiver comes with 2 USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port (which you must use for upgrades).

Having 2x3.0 and 1x2.0 ports is much more flexible than 1x3.0 and 2x2.0.

Thanks for bringing this receiver to market.  Hopefully it will perform as well as it sounds.  
Few questions which perhaps I missed.   Just to confirm OS is Android and if so which version, 5.x or 6.x?   Processor?   S905X?  S912-H?  S905D?    Curious if it is similar to Wetek Play 2S?
What is current status of 4:2:2 and can it receive/decode both mpeg2 4:2:2 and h.264 4:2:2 feeds?

I have vu solo 4k. its a solid receiver but its more of and end user receiver. It doesn't do 16apsk, 4.2.2, multistream or blind scanning. Not good as a media player either.

16apsk can be taken care of by using tuner network sharing. The amiko alien mini receivers tuner can be network shared to the solo 4k which kills 2 birds with 1 stone as the akimo tuner also handles multistream.

As for 4.2.2 the solo 4k handles hevc 4.2.2 8/10 bit no problem but h264 is a no go. Unless you have an Nvidia shield which will decode 4.2.2 h264 [smile]

Theres no magic 1 receiver does it all solution yet.

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.
