So far, we’ve seen two dual tuner set-top boxes powered by Amlogic S905D processor with Sen5 Android STB and Mecool KI Pro, but earlier this year, Foxconn launched Bandott set-top box based on the processor, with any tuner, but two HDMI inputs, and Widevine L1 and PlayReady 3.0 support allowing for 4K video playback for premium services like Netflix (see Bandott page), CatchPlay, iqiyi, and myVideo.

They have an official website here https://www.bandott.com/
The retail price is about US$57 which includes three months pre-paid CatchPlay, a movie streaming service that at least used to be part owned by HTC https://24h.pchome.com.tw/prod/DMAA9Z-A90080SFW?q=/S/DMAACF
The inputs appear to only be to re-transmit signals from set-top-boxes, game consoles etc. and can’t be used to record content as far as I can tell.
