DV7810-T2 is a Quad Core DVB-T2 Android Receiver with a CA Slot, Conax and Novel-SuperTV Support

Orange Pi Development Boards

There are a few Android TV boxes on the market with digital tuners (DVB-T2, DVB-S2, ATSC..), such as WeTek Play or VideoStrong K1, but unless you install some “special” app like OSCAM, you’ll only be able to watch Free-to-air channels. Shenzhen SDMC Technology DV7810-T2 Android set-top box adds a conditional access smartcard slot to work with the built-in DVB-T2 tuner.

DV7810-T2_BoxDV7810-T2 specifications:

  • SoC – Amlogic S812 quad core Cortex A9 processor @ 2.0GHz with an octa core Mali-450MP6 GPU
  • System Memory – 2GB DDR3 (1GB optional)
  • Storage – 8GB NAND flash (Options: 4, 16 or 32GB), SD card slot

  • Tuner – DVB-T / DVB-T2 Tuner (MXL608+AVL6762) with RF In and Out
  • Conditional Access – CA smartcard slot. Supports Conax and Novel-SuperTV solutions.
  • DRM – Verimatrix, Playready, Widevine
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Misc – IR receiver, power LED, LED display on front panel. 3.5 mm IR jack

  • Weight – 326 grams

Amlogic_S812_DVB_ConnectorsThe box comes with a remote control, a user’s manual, a power adapter, and AV and HDMI cables by default. This set-top box is running Android 4.4, and is said to support Beenius and HbbTV middleware, but I’ve been told the European standard HbbTV has not been implemented in the box yet.  Seven days EPG, USB PVR, Timeshifting, program playback, and “timing playing” are other features supported by the system.

SD Card, USB ports, and CA Slot

This box is probably not suited for selling directly to individuals, as I assume some sort of conditional access integration with content providers is required (TBC), but the company lists its Android set-top box on Alibaba, and on its own website.

Thanks to CSylvain for the tip.

it’s been a while that we are waiting for that box, in fact the only box supporting DVB S2 with AML S812, I hope that the price will be reasonable
in the mean time they are only VENZ K1 DVB S2 aml S805 with a steep price to match 98.99 USD

today they just published the T2 version with a more affordable price

I think I will be waiting for the DV7810-S2 or the K1 to drop under the 70 USD that’s the fair price to pay for an S805 device

@taki
thx taki, then for the moment better go with the VENZ K1, if there is a port of OPENELEC on it, the S805 seems more stable

According developers Wetek had even did not start on a housing S805, because from their tests, the TS is less efficient on an S805, as a box MX. http://www.wetekforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=127&p=1630#p1630

The box DV7810-T2/S2 remains the best market with its slot CAS, and even guaranteed 4K.

I see, like I said I was waiting for T+the DV7810-S2 for months now but it’s seems that it will never get to customer market :p I had my doubts about S805 the cortex A5 isn’t great far from that, but the VPU seems very solid with a good playback, this morning I read that VENZ is interested on making an S812 DVB box but no release date was delivred.

the real question that I always asked why they never use Rockchip RK3288 or AllWInner A80 chipset for DVB boxes, it won’t be that hard to have the AVL6211 (the only tuner that seems to be used) DRIVERS for example and compile it with the kernel to get it work

Sorry for the double reply moderated, you can delete it.

@natsu
Everything is detailed here for the S805 : http://www.wetekforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=127&p=1630#p1630
I also considered this issue to be able to DVB-S2/T2/C, and according to my analysis, Amlogic does not provide a solution to the DVB modules on their “GPIO” but that a.

Solutions “USB/DVB” are not always stable and lack of compatibility with a Kernel 3.10.xx.

To my knowledge, only Broadcom provides in their “SDK” such a solution, with “DVB” card slots at low cost. Example : http://www.satshop.tv/DVB-S2-Sat-HDTV-Tuner-for-GigaBlue-800SE-800UE-800Quad-800SEPlus-800-UE-Plus

if they dont support real dvb-api then no difference between some dummy receiver. I will wait wetek for new box with S812 and then buy it as they have best support at market

because RK3288 and Allwinner are closedsource from factory….

@kusta
if you want some real support for DVB-API and V4L, just one solution for now, OPENELEC, and for half the price of wetek, that could be a good alternative

@natsu

Vigica and others who run OpenELEC dont have DVB-API as their driver is not DVB-API compatible for DVB, and only one who make it full working was wetek, so they can use all juice at DVB
