is this DVB-S2X standard much different from HEVC?
Do octagon receivers manage both systems?
Or is it another French originality like Secam had been in the past century?

DVBS2X and HEVC are two different areas. One is a modulation standard, the other is a compression standard. I think channels on 33E actually use both.
What you want to compare is DVBS2X with DVBS2. They are not that different, but the former is an extension of the normal standard, and if you make use of the new features, a DVBS2 demodulator can't receive a DVBS2X transmission.
I know SF4008 can handle the 33E channels, at the moment.

Many modern tv satellite tunes do S2X natively too. Our LG does and its a round 3 years old now

I just tried with my LG and yes sure enough they show fine and even TMC auto selected the English soundtrack but...as with the SF8008 France24 'crashes' also after a few secs with a blue screen which I can't remove

What receiver ?

Edision Primo.

Shouldn't matter, though, as France 24 is standard DVB S2 8PSK with no encryption. Any HD capable rx should get it.

That's true but the box must haver the HEVC codec of course, but don't understand why my LG 4k TV and my SF8008 both give blue screens only when I go to the channel, weird. Fine on my SX88+
