The DINOBOT 4K is a new receiver and the first one that I have seen which combines Android 7.0 & Enigma2 operating systems. My German friends at OpenAtv are developing the enigma2 support, and it will be interesting to see if other groups join in the support of this new receiver. I will see what I can do about getting one of these receivers to test.

This receiver is new and many things do not work right now. It will be interesting to see if a receiver built like this will become popular. To date, nothing much with Android has performed well in fta. We will see...

I am always happy to see Open Source software.  I'm surprised their isn't more of a development crowd around enigma2 boxes. Granted I haven't looked at the source for the box you gave me but with other Linux based devices someone somewhere has a full blown linux distro fully ported to them. Might be fun to play with porting debian +Xorg +xfce4

There is plenty of development going on with enigma2. You just have to know where to look and have a desire to get involved.

Android is a stripped version of Linux, so a lot of things in enigma2 will not work in Android without modifications.
The U5pvr or DINOBOT 4K SE has been released for quite some time, and nothing much seems to have been done with it. The DINOBOT 4K SE is a 200-250 dollar box that was aimed in part at North America because they went to the trouble of including an ATSC tuner option. A Chinese Ma'am explains the DINOBOT 4K SE in this video:

The smaller DINOBOT 4K that was mentioned at the beginning of this thread should be ready in November or December 2017. It looks like these receivers have some potential, but a lot of work will need to be done to them.

Here is a video showing the DINOBOT 4K at start-up.

Hard for me to see this receiver being much of anything for fta. Looks like a glorified media box to me, and fta will be added as an afterthought.
