The Play2 uses a Single Tuner only. Its really only for casual TV use only because if something is recording and you want to watch a TV channel that is on another MUX its going to be impossible.....

Ok, but anyway I suppose that while recording a program using WP2 through its single tuner, I can see another one using the TV Tuners (obviously if a antenna cable is connected from WP2-out to TV....

Yes that works fine because the OTA TV signal is passed through the OUT tuner socket.

Yes, I've read about it, and this is one of the reason to move from Core to WP2, because seems that Core cannot be upgraded to Marshmallow in the future due to processor limitation. Is it true?

Usually its AMLogic that stop supplying Android OS updates as new Hardware is introduced. You can see the AML Android Software Development Kit cycle here:

Unsure what exactly is going to happen. No idea what WeTek have planned for future Hub / Play2 Android OS upgrades. We have seen Hub test MM Firmware surface. The Hub / Play2 are very similar to the S905X.

Ok, so I could setup the recording storage to my NAS, but...how? May I configure a folder using the Wetek NET Mounter App (and the using it inside WETV) or directly configuring inside Librelec (through TvHeadend)?
You would be a pioneer with the Play2 using both methods to record to a NAS. Its looks possible however if external Shares can be mounted. TvHeadend could certainly do it. Unsure about WeTV.

Quote:P.S. I asked to Wetek why the Core is not anymore available in their Shop. They answer me the is not foreseen to made it available in the next future! Does it mean that it will be retired from the market due to processor limitation (e.g. not possible to upgrade to Marshmallow)? Or simply is a supply chain/production temporary issue? What do you think about?
As per the AML chart above the Core will not get Marshmallow I would think. Don't know why WeTek stock is unavailable.
