MAG256 support?

Postby sdeens » Sun Oct 28, 2018 10:40 pm

Does server support these newer faster MAG256?

I’m thinking of testing this after years of modified
Dish-Charlie’s VIP-722s

Any possibilities for future DVR support or at least HD-recording support with any of these STBs?

The last answer I found from 6/15/2017 suggested only the VOD channels worked and live streaming showed “bars”...

So the only public answer is NO the MAG256 does not yet work with radio IPTV as of summer 2017

Can any mod please verify this for Fall 2018?

The Moderators need to answer this hardware question. Does this server accept MAG 256 or MAG 322 compliance?

Why ask this question 3 times?

Because the MAG 254 is already obsolete or other
servers based on the H.265 upgrade to all channels in the 2 next years.

This is EXACTLY why a technical accurate answer is mandatory from the servers administrator and not the membership.

I’m surprised this hasn’t already been answered

I believe that if the devices that you guys mentioned was supported it would have said so in the front page of the webpage, but since they are not it would be fare to assume that they are not.

Unlikely, that’s not how it works when new hardware is rolled out. These might work partially on VODBut not live channels

The key is the MAG256 supports the new 3rd party Stalker protocol that can exponentially increase access to many simultaneous servers in one STB box. Also the 256 is dramatically faster on HD content reducing possible micro freezing.

Or something like that...still trying to understand that Stalker thing.

I tested using demos the MAG256w2, on two urls
via reseller. It works great, fast channel changing, on all live streams and VOD content. WiFi (N protocol) was very smooth no micro freezing. The remote is inadequately small and only IR. The DVR
capabilities are lousy, but nothing compared to my
Dish VIP-722.

Buy this machine, made in Odessa Ukraine

They need to find a way to enable external DVR
via s firmware upgrade, so we can have better DVR
with recording..
