Because if you have multiple receivers it's extremely annoying if one remote controls more than one box. If this 'feature' can't be disabled then you couldn't have an sx88 & sf8008 on the go at the same time - both boxes would react simultaneously.
YES! exactly this!!! it looks like just you and me with this issue then! (which cannot be true)

i noticed your point was totally "glossed over" (ignored)

maybe the only way to disable it, is to uninstall the driver (if its driver based) - but otherwise, we're stuck on a old firmware forever!

very annoying!

why did they think it would be useful (and to even go to the effort!!!) to introduce functionality which allows one remote to control more than one STB. Absolutely ridiculous

This is a problem with other receivers as well.
I have two Technomate receivers with the same problem but at least they have on off switches at the back.
The SF8008 does have an on/off switch at the back which I keep off when not in use.

Hi,
does SF8008 support usb bluetooth dongle in order to connect my bluetooth mouse? I have a Plugable USB Bluetooth 4.0 that I use with linux ubuntu pc without problem. My SF8008 use MINI DUAL OS Linux SW V10534 31-10-2020 at the moment. When I insert the dongle nothing happens and the mouse doesn't pair.
Thanks

Netflix, YouTube. it would help in inserting text faster from the virtual keyboard for example. You could connect a Bluetooth keyboard too. There are cheap device that integrates keyboard and touchpad and connects with Bluetooth with tv.

still cant beleive there is no update to the remote control issue, why they thought it would be a good idea to do an update, to allow you to use a different receivers remote was a good idea, is totally beyond me.

wouldnt mind if there was an option to disable it.

this rules out having both boxes on at the same time, which is a pain - especially when you want to run tests

From memory you did ask for help about a month ago , what are your expectations ?

I would have to check (not easy with one box), but if one box is active, and the other is in standby, the remote 'on' button will do the job of alternating between the two, as long as both receive the command at the same tme.

Unfortunately trying that is very messy.
The remote of the SX88+ will switch both receivers on & off but the SF8008 remote won't do the same.
The button setup on the two remotes is not the same & only some of the buttons on each remote have an effect on the other receiver.
On top of that the receivers boot up & down at a different rate.
The SX88+ boots up & down slowly while the SF8008 will switch on & off instantly.

The only way I found around it is to switch the SF8008 off using the on off switch on the back if using the Sx88+.
I have the same problem with two Technomate receivers that I have as well.
At least the two Technomates have on off switches at the back.

The Technomates I have used in the past have a master setup (type 1 / 2) though you would have to order the alternative remote control.

er, i think my expectations are very clear.

i want stb 1's remote to operate stb1

i want stb 2's remote to operate stb2

NOT 1 working both - and therefore having to turn one off.

my point to the manufacturer - dont release an update, which does more harm than good - a totally pointless update, leaving a customer unable to enjoy two of their products independently without powering one unit off (if you have timers set on the one you have to turn off, you will miss your programs.)

at least include a DISABLE option! the workaround is to rollback to a pre June 2020 E2 image - but that means you're stick on old firmware without being able to update.

I remember that in the Technomates but seem to remember it didn't always work properly. I remember having to go into my TM7102HD & reset the remote because the F3/5 remote was working the 7102.
I haven't used my two Technomates in while now.

UPDATE: and its good news...

I can confirm that the GOLDEN INTERSTAR ALPHA X remote control unit DOES NOT interfere with an Octagon SF8008 - nor does an Octagon SF8008 remote control unit operate the ALPHA X (even though the remotes look the same, and the firmware is the same, but with a different skin\ look)
