Opticum AX-Quadbox HD2400 Coming in September

Opticum is releasing new receiver in September 2014. Specifications are good and on pair with other receivers for moderate initial price of 399 EUR but design could be better. Maybe in real life receiver will look better than on pictures that are available on the Internet.

As you can see it has lots of flash and ram, 2 cardreaders, 2 CI slots, 3x USB connectors, transcoding support (Xtrend still hasnt implemented transcoding for ET-10000), WOL two HDMI connectors (IN/OUT – I really do not see added value for HDMI-IN, but others might be using this on ET-10000), OLED screen (better one good screen than one good other one bad – VU+ DUO 2), space for 2.5″ HDD inside the receiver, external power supply, etc.

This might be good alternative to existing receivers and I really hope they will provide good support for drivers and excellent remote control. Support might be good as they already sent needed patches to OpenPLi team so we can expect OpenPLi image from the beginning! Images cannot be downloaded yet but I expect that they will be available in September. OpenATV on the other side already offers images for this receiver. Regarding remote control. I am allergic to receivers with amazing specs and poor remote control. Good remote control should have quality buttons, good range and instant response! I hope they will deliver.
