AzBox HD Premium i Elite as published have error in hardware but only on CI module ( Official modules works like Irdeto, Viaccess ... only Diablo CAMdont work ).

Somebody has write that OpenSat will change processor on Azbox, this is lie.
OpenSat is make another AzBox but this is multimedial player witch dont have any SAT equipment and uses indentical software as Azbox HD Premium and Elite reciver and uses Sigma 8635 Chipset.

Hardware error are not present on all devices. This error doesnt influence on any other function of reciver but only can recognize Diablo CAM but internal emulation for certan packages doesnt work.

Another thing, OpenSat was intentionally issued that error to public that people see and understand that this is not a deception of customers, and that anyone who want to get rid of that bug OpenSat will fix reciver without any additional payment.

I will also pointed out that the OpenSat acted very correctly, as opposed to Dream Multimedia, was aware they have problems with the tuner and other HW started sale of DM800 and never publicly apologize to customers or addmited the tuner bug, overheating .... etc.

So you can sleep peacefully and be satisfied with your Azbox.

...shortest ban in the history of the board...

Taken from another forum just to put peoples minds at rest.

Mono, Portugal, 28 July 2009
Dear valuable Azbox users,
In order to calm down some opinions that appeared on internet, Opensat wants to clarify its position
referring to those issues:
1) We frankly don’t understand why this excitement around AzBox arises now, but we have strong reasons to
believe that it is only a commercial retaliation.
2) It is false that OPENSAT plans release new models based on other processor than the Sigma, we even announce
that our integration with Sigma chipsets are bigger every day.
3) It is true that Opensat will launch a new model, called media player without any possibility to plug tuners (the
model already presented at ANGA CABLE 2009), the target is to compete with MMP devices (like Popcorn, egreat,
…) and will be used a Sigma design chipset.
4) Obviously in the future some new models can be launched to better fulfill our customer’s needs. At the moment
we don’t plan to release any new model soon, and even if this happens in the future, definitively will be a Sigma
Chipset device and software will be compatible with all other HD receivers (Premium and Elite).
5) About Hardware issue, is true that with time we discovered some problem mostly with some non official cam’s.
In order to increase compatibility we decided to use the 2 slots with different voltage in the newer productions, so
all kind of cam's should work now. Due to this problem some of our distributors suggested to make those changes
manually in some motherboards previously sold, free of charge to the customers that requested the modification.
Opensat will fully support those distributors sending all the needed components to make the Hardware changes
and also support them technically to solve the issues. If user want to make the modification by at home can
download instructions at Link censored, click here to view our rules.
6) Opensat Never run away from its responsibilities with users and society, probably Opensat is in the restricted
number of companies that have all portfolio licenses such as: MPEG LA (MPEG 2 VIDEO, MPEG 4 VISUAL,
DTS and finishing IGR licensing.
As is public knowledge, in case of DTS license we pay 3 USD per each sold receiver so users can enjoy this
technology. Probably AzBox it’s the only Set top box at free market with DTS output by HDMI. Our biggest concern
is the satisfaction of our users needs.
7) About Twin tuner issue, as is public knowledge in the datasheet from Sigma chipset, it's possible, and we follow
all chipset manufacturer recommendations, however at the moment Sigma didn't presented us with a working
solution, se we are working very hard developing it by ourselves (actually this is the reason of so few updates on last
3 weeks). Soon we will have solution to this problem.
8) In order to provide best support to the users we are planning to launch an official forum where people can report
their problems faster and also help us to find the correct solutions.
With Best regards,
Hugo Condessa
Opensat C.E.O.

too early for me, saying that so is the 800hd :D i'm going to see how both unfold over the coming weeks. Actions speak louder than words, hope it happens as for AZBOX as its a fantastic saving over a dreambox but will it perform as well in both support and user satifaction....
