    So i found a used sf4008 with 2x cable & 2x sat feeds for sale on another forum sub £200 inc recorded postage so i purchased it a week ago & so far im well impressed, im running it with a 500gb hdd & tuner a 2x cable & tuner b as single sat, the oscam was a breeze to set up & running the latest vix image with metric hd skin plus osram picons. the only pain was trying to figure out why my samsung k9000 series uhd 4k tv wouldnt work with it in 4k mode, i found you cant run pip with hdr chipset in the av setting on the sf4008 but all sorted now. Im still using my hd51 as spare room box in 1080p mode.

    thanks for that info mrxbox360, my next purchase may well be a 4K TV, does anyone else who has this box or a 4k box get the PIP issue? Anyone on openatv 6 with that problem?

    no worries i found i had to :

    1st : go to menu / setup / system / av settings / video chip mode to : HDR , 12BIT 4:2:0 / 4:2:2 no PIP - PRESS GREEN TO SAVE & THEN DO A FULL RESTART ON THE BOX.

    2nd : go to menu / setup / system / av settings / Mode select : 2160 - PRESS GREEN TO SAVE & THEN IT WILL ASK YOU TO CONFIRM THIS RESOLUTION IS OK SAY YES & DO A FULL RESTART ON THE BOX.

    You should find now you are in full 4k mode but it may depend on age & spec of your tv.
