RE: WeTek Play2 - 4K PVR - HD Audio - Dual Boot - Specs & Reviews - Sheppard - 2017-03-30

Is there any development build for Android 6 for Play 2?

I was checking but I've only found one for HUB, but HUB got Android 6 by update.

I would like to check if the Play 2 will have a the same improvement as HUB did.

Thanks

We are preparing Android 6.0 for WeTek Play 2 with all goodies, like on WeTek Hub that already received Android 6.0 Marshmallow update.

Hi!

We're currently working on Android 6, but porting the whole WeTV to Android 6 is more complicated, some drivers need to be changed and it takes time to be able to accomplish this.

But as soon we have some news, you'll be the first to know.
Here and in our forum

Best regards

I'm thinking of getting a Play2 but not sure which Tuner to get.

Can you buy the Tuner modules seperatly at a later date and what would be the price in the UK and where to get them from.

Hi

In UK, it depends on the region you're at.
It can be by Satellite, or DVB-T
Please bear in mind that WeTek Play 2 only allows you to see FTA channels.

You can check our webshop at our website wetek.com

And yes, you can buy the tuners separated.

Best regards

Thanks for that, I guess the DVB-T tuner can get Freeview HD channels

For regular Freeview yes

For Freeview Play, you need specific devices.

Best regards

Has anyone compared the picture quality of the Play 2 to that of the Mede8er 600X3D (or 800 or 1000)

You need DVB-T2 not just DVB-T for Freeview HD, but I believe the Wetek is DVB-T2 compatible.

Also - beware that Freeview HD (like Freesat) doesn't use regular DVB EIT for the EPG - and instead uses a proprietary Huffman compression scheme for it (Freeview SD channels use regular EIT stuff with no problem). TV Headend includes support for this, other software is more hit and miss.

This is the major problem a bunch of Freeview UK / AUS / NZ users have with the Play2 and WeTek's WeTV App.
The Auto 7day DVB EIT for the EPG simply does not work with the WeTV App at all. (Unless it has been fixed recently)

Having to select each individual bunch of grouped channels to pull up EPG Data is not how users want to to go about easily viewing a EPG.

TvHeadend has all this Auto EPG data sorted out and it works well.
