Hi William-1,No need atm as the latest Firmware (Software) Update V10532 16-09-2020 (#58) has solved the picture glitching,
Pictures are rock steady now on all satellites.
Thank you Octagon
No there are still issues with the DiSEqC motor if you switch the power off at the mains the motor will not move to another satellite until I go into DiSEqC 1.2 & select go to position,
Then select DiSEqC 1.3 USALS & after a bit of prompting the motor commands are restored to the SX88-4K.
If you leave the receiver on standby the motor will respond when you re-start the SX88-4K,
There is another problem that has come to light with the SX88-4K,
When I use the remote extension the light remains green on standby ?
But with the SX88+ on standby the remote extension turns to red the same as the receiver.
The Diseqc 1.1 functionality is poor. I have ten LNB inputs and it either failed to switch between them or was very very slow. The only one that worked was KA Sat 9E (Saorsat). Also, I tried another type of Diseqc switch but it made no difference. I never had this issue with any other STB in my experience and the SX88+ worked without problems with regard to Diseqc 1,1. It seems to get stuck on LNB Input 1 (in my case 28.2 east) and then struggles to change LNB input or doesn't at all. This has to be some sort of software bug but it is an essential function to those of us who have multiple fixed LNB inputs and should not have been allowed to happen. In addition, the SX88 4K does not appear to be able to receive the Abertis DTT muxes on 30W (even in the absence of keys) as the SX88+ and its versions can - so it does not appear to be equipped to handle TLS. UHD picture quality was good but without Diseqc 1.1 functionality, it is useless to me, so I sent it back to the distributor today for a refund. Very disappointing.
