    Default Re: Changing From sky to a zgemma

    The in-laws had a Zgemma Star 2S which died last week so I've just setup a new H5.2S for them which is a very nice little box for the money and even has a nice remote which is always a bonus with these things.

    The 2S was totally dead and just showed the red light on power up but without the boot message. Tried different power supplies and no joy.

    Brought it home today, took it to bits and bizarrely it fired up as I pulled the heatsink off the Broadcom SoC so guessing it's a dry joint somewhere or a bad connection. It's 18 months old. I was expecting it to be a dead Winbond flash chip so I was pulling the heatsink to get a SOIC clip on it and just lucked out

    I've just finished configuring the old 2S as a slave so they can have it back and stick it on another TV and watch everything from the new H5.2S master box via the second tuner.

    For anyone wanting to do that the Channels Importer plugin is new this year in various OpenXXX builds and works a proper treat and sorts out bouquets, EPG and fallback tuner settings.

    The Whoosh Build is bang on and they're a fan of the films they can watch via iptv now as well (the old 2S was just running an old OpenVIX image).

    I bought it the sub from aliexpress, hardly a decent supplier . I rarely use it so will just wait for it to run out.

    What Edison do you have the OS mini? Is it worth getting that over a zgemma?

    I'm looking for a decent IPTV box.

    Yes mate I've had the mini for about a year - few glitches here and there but on the whole an excellent purchase for 99 (Twin tuner)
    It runs iptv via the xcplugin no problem at all!

    Good box - I'm looking at getting a second one for another room as my Vu Duo is on its last legs

    That's the last box I had and found it was great.

    It's still going but I've had to change the capacitors and the HD fooked up - now the memory can't keep up with the bouquet and epg updates

    Ditto with my duo, changed the caps and every time i use it it's frozen on the EPG or bouquet update.
    I bought a mutant hd51 to replace it in the lounge decent box nice and quick to respond.
