I purchased a Vodafone TV aus android tv model a couple of weeks ago and have been playing with it for a week now

Costs $140aud.

If your not familiar

It's a technicolor stb with 4k HDR support and 2gb ram with an 8gb rom.

Remote is really responsive and high quality

Has a built in freeview tuner, when plugged into known working dvb-t socket, receives no channels. And no option to deep dive into settings.

Currently on android TV 7.1, Vodafone au have confirmed an upgrade to 8.0 oreo soon.

Similar to Xiaomi international TV android tv stb.

Would reccomend it you want a nice ui and remote. But you need someone in aus to post forward it to you.

I'm using it mainly for Rugbypass casting from phone as you are able to change DNS on phone and stb. As chromecast itself has no DNS settings configurable.

There is surely a config file somewhere onboard to change the 7/8 MHZ channel scan for the Freeview tuner.
