MOI Pro AMD IPTV Streaming Server Supports Up to 16 Tuners

TBS Technologies is a company specializing in digital TV tuners, with their catalog includes various DVB-T2, DVB-C, DVB-S2 and ATSC tuner cards. They also happen to be the designer of Matrix board and Matrix 2 Android set-top box, both of which run Android or Linux and support some of the company’s tuners. But they also have higher end products such as MOI Pro AMD IPTV streamer based on an AMD Embedded G-Series processor, and supporting up to 4 tuner cards with up to 4 tuners each.

  1. well…depends Onebir

    for example i use one of these for the following stuffs:
    – nas & file server
    – web server
    – email server
    – streaming server local and over internet (to have my channels with me)
    – home print server
    – torrent box
    – steam machine
    – central unit management for lights , doors & windows
    – surveillance station
    …. and few more other stuffs.
    All these done with this embedded solution.

  2. Can i use this when i have STB with card? I guess the channels are encrypted since i use the card?
    The channels i get through the STB is cable based.

  3. @Fossxplorer

    You can use hardware CA but with simple CI not CI+ (almost any model Connax , Irdeto,Nagra 1 or 2 , Cryptoworks and Viaccess) or you have all the time the softcam variant of descrambling via Oscam.

  4. What OS does it come with?
    I need TBS to stream local tv (DVB-T europe) to my IOS device when I travel abroad.
    So, h.264 encoding is necessary in order to preserve bandwidth (actual upload speed around 2megabits/sec)

    Thanks guys

    The supported OSes are listed in the post, but if you just want to stream to your smartphone that server is overkill.
    You could instead get something like U4 Quad Hybrid -> http://www.cnx-software.com/2016/03/25/stream-live-tv-to-your-computer-or-smartphone-with-u4-quad-hybrid-kodi-and-tvheadend/, or a device similar to EyeTV Netstream with a DVB-T tuner -> http://www.cnx-software.com/2016/02/03/eyetv-netstream-streams-free-to-air-digital-tv-to-any-devices-at-home/

    It is an overkill, but I need h264 transcoding. Does MOI+ or U4 support that? I might need to configure streams as low as 50kbps in some of the countries I will be travelling.

    So far I have found only hauppauge broadway does h264 transcoding. HDhomerun extend is not available yet, same applies for netstream.

  7. @dinpap
    U4 Quad Hybrid is an HTSP client working with TVheadend, but I have not seen any options for transcoding at the time of my test. So you’d probably right that for your use case it may not work.

    The AMD MOI Pro should support transcoding, since the processor is quite powerful, and TVheadend also appears to have options for on-the-fly transcoding that are configurable through the Web UI ->https://tvheadend.readthedocs.io/en/stable/webui/config_streamprofile/

    It’s not something I have ever played with myself

  8. @cnxsoft

    So it appears that as for now, hauppauge has the only solution for someone who wants h.264 transcoding (not just decoding). I will get one and test it (although it’s a quite old solution)

    Thank you for your answers
