Thread: [TM-Twin-OE] Feedback


Forum: Technomate TM-Twin-OE Support

I find it very very ominous that there are no in-depth reviews for this receiver by now, and i can only see that as a sign that either TM them selves are unsure about the receiver

    Exclamation [TM-Twin-OE] Feedback

    I plugged my Twin in last night first time since Christmas to see what fixes had been applied to latest image (Beta) 8-10/3/12

    from what I can gather its not on general sale but is sold if you take up the trade in offer ? anyway to me they are not official beta testers and paid for there box, so have every right to post there findings

    Ive not tested everything but had a little play

    opentv is painfully slow downloading epg @ around 11 minutes, and still misses lots and lots of channels, after searching via FTP after 4 scans of epg there was no epg.dat file anywhere on the box
    just checked now and the epg.dat file is there but no ext.epg.dat

    Picture quality is very nice and audio levels are the same on SD and HD channels

    considering the amount of ram and memory it has I dont find it much faster than my clone dream tbh maybe thats due to the amount of code the box is reading before choosing the right command for the correct box ?

    skins are sparse in plugins but will try my own manually with IPK, dont like that it has a adult plugin as standard
    after pressing loads of menu commands and stuff I did before that caused green screens as yet I havent had 1

    saying all that there have been many many improvements and this is a vast improvement on the TM800

    I just hope a real source code is released so images can be complied by other teams and its not only Open Vix that can be compiled from but Open PLi too, this is debatable though from what Ive heard

    will try recording etc later


    any other Twin owners feel free to post your findings

    Re: [TM-Twin-OE] Feedback

    I've also noticed that now and next on the infobar doesn't update while your on the channel, if you stay on the channel for say 2hrs , 4 programmes at 30 minutes
    if you haven't switched channel it will still show the 2 programmes from the first hour

    hope that makes sense lol

    done a recording while Ive been out just played a little of it back and seems fine FF>> upto x128 and resumed playback fine, not watching it all but the 10 minutes Ive watched has been OK

    will soon try some media files

    Please if you have traded your 800 in or bought the twin we would be happy to hear your comments too good or bad

    I always set the aspect ratio to switch when the broadcast changes to 4:3 (older programmes like on Gold)

    this feature did work on the twin before as I set it up, just gone into A/V Settings to change this, you can see it change when you select it as soon as you hit green to save and return to TV the picture is stretched again
    looks as though with updates code has been disabled

    scanned EPG with Rytec and brought in pretty much everything so although OpenTV dont really work Rytec does so you can still have full EPG

    overall Twin is much better but after a couple more little bugs its going back in the box and plug the dreambox back in

    shame the others didn't want to add to the feedback

    I think the fact that you are putting it back in the box and replacing it with a single tuner DM speaks volumes atm mate. Only good value solid linux Twin tuner = Vu+ DUO?

    Hmmm silence is golden why no other reviews are you sworn to secrecy? And before anyone jumps on my back im sure there is a lot of potential buyers that are waiting for a review but at the moment cant access any info
