Just FYI for whatever it is worth..... That receiver uses the same brand chip set as the Manhattan 1978. Just tossing that out there.


 Edited to fix any missunderstanding..... Added the word "Brand" so people wouldn't get confused.

Does the Manhattan 1978 have the same bugs/ video problems as the SX88?
What about the motor controls for the Manhattan 1978? Same problems/issues as the SX88?

Would be nice to see a proper review of the Manhattan 1978. It seems no one has bothered to do that.

Video hiccuping and the motor controls. There is a problem with a few that don't have some kind of filter in front of the ir sensor that allows interference, but to the best of my knowledge that is being dealt with as they pop up. Not everyone has competing remotes. If I remember correctly, those were the first units? Been over a year.... minds not as it used to be... But I think that's the deal.

GX 6622 is in the 78. All I was referring to was the GX brand of chips for crying out loud. Excuse me for not being specific.

Over 3 years later, The Octagon SX88 is still getting regular firmware updates with the latest firmware dated 9-27-2020. Other receivers with similar chipsets made  a few firmware updates over a few months until the receivers were sold and then abandoned all support. Octagon is noted for extended support for their closed sourced fta products.

Over time, media plugins such as YouTube and Stalker will quit working unless they are updated. Octagon has shown enough concern to keep the media features operating while making additional tweaks and adjustments to the SX88 receiver.  It would be nice if other receiver brands would continue supporting it a few years after the fta product has been sold instead of supporting it initially then dropping it like a hot potato a few months after it has been introduced.

I have seen threads comparing the blindscan feature of different receiver models. It would be nice to see a thread that compares the length of firmware support for different receiver models. Right now, the AzBox Premium+ and the Optibox receivers would probably be at the top of the list, with many years of enigma2 firmware support for each of these models.
