Folks... Are you a skilled Freeview satellite user and pretty good with Android? Something is cooking here. Something cool and you can be involved.

I'm looking for someone who can configure their satellite receivers and is comfortable around Andoird.

Post a reply with something interesting about your setup or your experience. Who knows what can happen next?

90cm dish, DiSEqC rotor. Two non Freeview set-top units hiding in a box somewhere. Hasn't been used since we got the TiVo boxes though.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Linux box running Myth TV on one dish, and a freeview box on another dish. Multiple Android devices running custom ROMs, including one running Cheapcast and acting as a Chromecast (badly).

Mmm android on a raspi as a DVB-S receiver with media centre functions? Sounds fun!

VuDuo = brilliant Sat receiver, and there's already a free Android app that allows you to remote control it.

This looks seriously interesting. What has piqued my curiosity isn't the android apps, it's the fact that this is the first satellite recorder that I am aware of with a DLNA server to share recorded material across a home network. I have a network in place, but only a satellite connection to one room. Given the pricing, acquiring one of these and networking it has just gone on the possible Christmas project list.

Looks very nice ;)




If you have to run heating in winter, you don’t own enough computers.
