the only reason i stick to my Xtrend 9200 is that no other STB's seem to do hardware blindscan...maybe they do now? been off the scene for a bit.

i had a solo 2 when they first came out thought it took a while for blindscan to be added certainly on BH ,in a later driver revision i thought?
Except its a pain in the arse getting anything to run on it yet.
I'd love one for the future,but no way I'd buy one yet as practically nothing is written with ARM in mind,although that is indeed slowly changing.
Sorrybut thatīs complete nonsens
On the Vu 4K runs anything you want from MediaPortal to Kodi
from Oscam to Gbox from Merlin MusicPlayer to Enhanced Movie Center ( EMC )
an so on the List should be endless
The one and only think that bothers me is that the Vu 4K could not Play
Video Files in Ultra HD H264
Tell me what did not Work for you i guess Sonic1 from the BH Team
or another Person,maybe i,could Tell you a Solution
again on my VU 4K runs anything i want to run
Im not talking about basic plugins, of course they will run.
Im talking about more complex usage that includes things written in C++ that's been compiled for mipsel
Anything that uses a .so .po or .mo extension for example just isnt going to run ( a good example would be theTVDB plugin,but there are many others)
There are many other things too that simply are not going to work until the things written in C++ are also compiled for ARM (we are also talking binary's here) I cant be arsed listing all that wont work,but trust me there's loads. ( it would be a far shorter list to name what will run than name what wont )

And thats my point and the whole point of this thread.
The blindscan plugin is one of the plugins that WONT work on the 4k
Full circle me thinks.
TVDB Plugin for example Works
Sure itīs a mipsel File packed as an .ipk but if you extract it
and FTP the File to /usr/lib/enigma2/python/plugins/extensions
reboot the Box and here we go but anyway ......
Its the TMDB plugin then I couldn't recall exactly which of the two it was that uses C++ files,but I knew it was one of them.
Anyway,thats not important as this is not a debate about the 4k and its long list of limitations. What is important is that the Blindscan plugin doesn't work properly (yet) on the 4k and because of this its been removed from most image feeds until its fixed,which is what the original poster was asking about.

Try it for your self
If you have tryed it we will Talk again
Could not Upload Pictures to proof that it Works,Sorry
but look at the Pictures here
nothing more to say cause you think you are the experts
btw BlindScan did not Work with the FBC Tuner thats right but,and there is always a but,
if you use one of the available Plug and Play Tuners,for example the BCM7356,BlindScan Works also
on the VU 4K but iīm pretty sure that you Experts know that too.

What are you waffling on about ?
Yes its a tuner issue as to why Blindscan wont work on the 4k and this is well known. But tell me,who on earth wants to spend top dollar on the VU+ Flagship box only then to find that to get a plugin such as Blindscan to work they then have to go out and spend more money to purchase a USB tuner ? Its just madness !
This is without all the other problems associated with all C++ stuff that's been compiled in mipsel,which simply will never ever run until its been compiled in ARM by the writers of the software. This is fact regardless of how much you argue about it,this fact will not change.
As stated,one day it will be a great box,but not today.
The fact is Blindscan doesnt work on the 4k (yet) and that's what the original poster asked about.
