Qviart Dual 4k Uhd Linux Enigma2+Android 9.0 Combo Review & Setup Guide

receiver.jpgremote5.jpg

With a spec DVB-S2X+T2/C H.265 IPTV 2GB RAM 16GB the Dual is fairly well specced to feature Android and Enigma 2 on the same receiver.

The Android side of this box is capable of using Forever SP codes. The Dual in my option is priced on the high side considering unlike the Viark range there is no attached Forever sub and you need to seek a SP code for it.

Booting up the box seem quick and the initial setup is time date and location.

Once booted we need to Flash the latest firmware.

There are two options

Qviart DUAL PT (1.07) This is to be used if you have a Dual already and have flashed PT firmware previously.

DOWNLOAD

For most if you are setting up the dual from the box youll need the following firmware.

Qviart DUAL (Special)

DOWNLOAD

To flash this firmware is simple download it and extract the rar file to a fat32 formatted USB stick.
Insert the usb stick in the front slot of the Qviart Dual.
On your remote, navigate to Main Settings-Update-USB
Select the update bin file and press ok.

Now Factory Reset the dual and then flash

PT 1.07

DOWNLOAD

Go make a coffee or beer you'll need a beer later :ROFLMAO:

After booting youll be greeted with a very clean and well laid out UI

At this point we need to do a factory reset this is very important or the receiver will not behave properly.

To do this on your remote navigate to Settings-Personal-Reset
Select reset all and press ok.

Complete the basic settings and then we can start to setup the sat side and channels.

On the front screen select Channel search.

You be greeted with this

Scan & Motor Options.jpg

If you have a motor scroll down to usuals first and enter your coordinates

Usuals Setup.jpg

Exit that and then select motor

Motor Select Sat section.jpg

On The satellite option at the top scroll <> on the remote and select all the sats on your arc and set each one to usuals and exit.

Now Select Antenna Settings.

Her first setup you LNB

At the bottom you see the Start Search option, this has multiple choices and this is where the Dual has bugs.

Satellite search does not move the dish after hitting OK
Multi Sat Search will cause the box to freeze as you start the search.
Blind scan also freezes the Dual but a second attempt may complete it scan but its not a given.

So here is my workaround to manually search all sat positions and get the motor to move to the correct position in the arc

Ant1Move Motor Use.jpg

On the top option of the Antenna Configuration, Highlight Satellite
Press the ok button and select the first position you want to scan and press the OK button, then again this will move the dish to the correct position.
Scroll down to start search and press ok

Ant1Ant2.jpg

The search will now reliably start

After the search completes, reboot the box fully and commence with your next search till you have completed your full arc.

I'll attach my list for those that want to save time it includes all major sats from 45e to 30w

If you need your serial number youll find that under

Main Setting-Device-About and select status and press ok.

The EPG on the Dual has a Nice UI but like Viark the EPG itself is not full

The remote for the box is excellent smooth operation no clicking but i could not get the learning feature to work.

From the Android UI you can boot directly into Enigma 2

E2 Android boot.jpg

Four slots are provided and ive loaded them up with my favourite e2 images

E 2 slots.jpg

On the Enigma 2 side, there are no bugs to report the dual works in the same way most multiboot image boxes would do.

The enigma 2 side is fairly quick not Octagon sf8008 quick but quick enough to deal with stream relay with no issues at all.And quicker than say a H11.

My thoughts on making this box a real winner are fixing the bugs on the Android side.

Fix the freezing on Multi Sat search and blind scan.
With the blind scan im positive, the freeze occurs when the box tries to add the new TP's found to the database.
EPG needs to be more complete, an issue with most Forever boxes which never seems to get fixed.
Putting the box into standby from the remote does not work.

What firmware are you running ? The channel database was done on 1.04. You dont look to be on the correct firmware and a different launcher.

You need to also install via USB -Update like you would if you were updating the firmware, not by searching usb stick as it pops up on screen from inserting USB stick.

Could also be the name of the file rename to qviart_database_20230424180007


Ive factory reset my dual 3 times and used my db on each occasion it works.

If you still have no luck i will video the process to prove it works 100%

hello, does it also like the DRS under prometheus or other emu or else you need to have your own clines and make it work with oscam or ncam
a+
bonjour, est-il aussi comme le DRS sous prometheus ou autre emu ou bien vous devez avoir vos propres clines et le faire fonctionner avec oscam ou ncam

I have a motorised dish on the way, i may gift my dad the viark 4k and get this box, would you recommend?

Or should i try to get a Viark DRS2 or Droi?

Do you think it will be able to handle UHD stream relay if we get a reliable
Source?

Read what i have wrote it is a fair review of the box.

Its getting better although it still has all the bugs mentioned in my review. I have be told they are working on these so maybe some new firmware soon, it would not take much on the android side to make it a very good box.

At the moment i prefer my Viark 4K over it.

I suspect it would handle UHD streams ICam wise but ive not seen it.

From what I understand, you have both the qviart and the viark. I have the viark 4k, but I wanted to try the qviart.. can you tell me, in terms of vision quality (sharpness and colors) is it better between the two?

Viark 4k is sharper picture quality wise with the dual on Android.

When the Dual is in E2 mode it is a match for the Viark 4K

View attachment 23591

Sono disponibili quattro slot e li ho caricati con le mie immagini e2 preferite

View attachment 23593

Sul lato Enigma 2, non ci sono bug per segnalare il doppio funziona nello stesso modo in cui farebbe la maggior parte delle caselle di immagini multiboot.

Il lato enigma 2 è abbastanza veloce non Octagon sf8008 veloce ma abbastanza veloce da gestire il relè del flusso senza problemi. E più veloce di un H11.

I miei pensieri su come rendere questa scatola un vero vincitore sono la correzione dei bug sul lato Android.

Correggi il congelamento sulla ricerca Multi Sat e sulla scansione cieca.
Con la scansione cieca im positivo, il blocco si verifica quando la casella tenta di aggiungere i nuovi TP trovati al database.
EPG deve essere più completo, un problema con la maggior parte delle scatole Forever che non sembra mai essere risolto.
Mettere la scatola in standby dal telecomando non funziona

New Full Motor List

55 East to 30 West No major sat positions missing this time :D but im still hung over 😂

All positions were done under blind scanning option.

Install list under Backup and Load options.
Set your USUALS coordinates and your good to go on a Universal LNB.

Took some doing this with all the Dual's scanning issues, so i hope it helps some of you set up quickly.

Hello, I installed FW 1.04 and I wanted to know if I can put the original Firmware 5.0 back?
I would like to repeat the FW 1.04 installation procedure because I noticed that there are several bugs and I don't want it to be due to an incorrect installation of FW 1.04
I found that the decoder does not turn off from the remote control, I can't record, I can't take screen shots, there are no epgs, it doesn't keep the settings...

Thank you
