Infomir MAG boxes are popular for people running their own IPTV network with content managed using Linux servers to store media files and run Stalker open source IPTV middleware portal developed by the company. A new company has now launched a competing set-top box compatible with Stalker called BLOMC ONE.

The company informed me that BLOMC ONEC and ONES models are also coming with respectively a cable and satellite tuner. You’ll find the firmware for the box on the company website’s software page, which is upgradeable via USB mass storage. The video below explains the simple procedure to configure the box to connected to your Stalker portal.
BLOMC ONE can be purchased for €57,02 on JASAT Multimedia website. However, while searching for a 667 MHZ CPU with LQFP144 package, I found the box is also known as Maxytec i100, compatible with both Stalker and Xtream Codes, and a Maxytec i100 S2 model already includes a DVB-S2 tuner. If you already own one of those Stalker compatible STBs, you should be able to watch IPTV on other devices with StalkerTV Android app or Kodi together with the Stalker Client add-on.
