At the moment the solution I have to view 4:2:2 feeds, Octagon SF 8008 streaming to RPi5 with Libreelec, E2 client addons, works perfectly with 4:2:2 HD feeds.

Discrete GPU is relevant.
Try watching 4K (3840x2160) UHD 4:2:2 content on a GPU that does not have HW support for H.265 HEVC + HDR/HLG and you'll get yourself a slideshow.
CPU with integrated GPU also isn't the best solution, as it sucks on 8K (7680x4320) UHD 4:2:2 HDR/HLG content.
Hobby of watching just about everything in 4:2:2 isn't cheap, so be prepared to invest some money if you want to enjoy it smoothly.

I stream 422 to my Nvidia Shield using the E2 Streamer app. Works well 80% of the time but there is the occassional feed that won't play ball and can stream a bit jerkily! Most feeds are 420 anyway so the amount of times I've watched 422 I can count on one hand last 12 months. Champions League are mostly 422 but there's usually one or two 420 too.

Aye, easy to input the key into an Ericsson RX8200, done by a browser interface menu screen.
These receivers are not generally tied to a broadcaster, they are like a SIM free phone, buy one, stick a CW into it and use it.
You can insert the keys also using the receiver front panel, not only from its web interface.
It is a very simple operation. When yyou have the key, switch on the receiver, tune the right frequency, enter the key and go!
No streaming, no PCs, no additional cards, no advanced skills needed.
But.... yes, expensive.

That is not accurate, you are making it sound as though an RX8200 is an easy unit to operate. It is not a simple unit to operate for a newbie.
You failed to mention:

1. There is no remote control handset.
2. There are no on screen menus on the TV.
3. The polarity voltage has to be manually set at 13V or 18V.
4. The L.O. has to be manually set depending if the precise frequency you wish to tune is high or low band.

For most users there is a learning curve to be able to operate one of these units quickly and efficiently.
Add in the fact that the noise coming from it sounds like a jet taking off and it is not a receiver for a home office or a living area.
It needs to be out of the room where viewing is to take place.

If your decoder is Enigma&Appletv :


1.Install and configure VuplusTv(appletv)
2.Scan the desired satellite and save to Favorites or however you have saved your channel list.
3. In the VuplusTv application it should show you the channels you have scanned and just select and watch TV!

Yes, right, it could be all true. But my analysis was against streaming from an enigma2 receiver into a PC. In this case, RX8200 usage could be easier.
Obviously a consumer box is easier and easier than a professional one, but it does not decode 4:2:2.
About the noise: well, yes it is noisy, but I do not agree it can't be used in the same room where you are watching.

Do you think it works also with Dreambox DM920 or only with Vu+ receivers?

Just this afternoon I was doing tests with someone who has an ECHOLINK V9 OCTA and played 4:2:2 without problem. It didn’t last long, so I can’t say how long it would last in continuous operation.

Any receiver that can send a stream (4:2:2 decoding is done by the client, not the server)

This android uses the same SW as GT (4:2:2 SW decoding)

Tested. Very useful app! And so simple to configure and use.
Many thanks!

Hi there

I have laptop DELL icore7 (2.8 GHz) + RAM 32 GB + 5GHz wifi ... + 5 GHz wifi router

I receiver 422 feed to Octagon 8008 mini and stream to laptop with MP-HC (it looks better than VLC)
Than i send pic to my 65" TCL tv set by mirroring pic to TV ... but i still afraid beacause procesor still is on 28%
during this process ... this works quite well

I tested with CL feed at 1w and with tennis ATP 500/1000 feeds at 7E
