I have some questions

Hello.

I'll probably buy a Wetek Play 2 but I have some questions I'd like to be answered before I buy it.

My goal is to replace a Sat Enigma2 box. Will Wetek Play 2 android be up to the challenge? I'm willing to give up the "sat box feel" in order to have a fully functional kodi and media center in the same equipment. I know WeTV is not the best but will it be a good choice to watching TV as primary function? I know emulation of card is needed but I'm not going to discuss that as Wetek doesn't officially supports it.

Is it possible to make WeTV app open and play automatically after booting in order to have a more TV box like feel?

Thanks.

    Yes you can boot straight into wetv or any app.

    I personally don't watch much live TV, on demand and catch-up are my main use for tv (kodi and other apps). But it works well for watching live tv and does all I need it to. I believe card sharing does work, but I don't use it.

    I'm not sure about the recording, it works, but not really used it enough to know if it's reliable, but i do know the EPG is really poor for UK users, you only get now and next, which as far as I can tell makes scheduling recordings impossible?

    The box runs really well, best android box I've had, and I like the interface of the classic launcher. I would recommend it, I've had no issues with it.

    Thanks Dandroid! Recording isn't really a problem for me but I would like confirmation from anybody just to be sure.

    kcmtno, of course you need a subscription to watch netflix. There's no such thing as "netflix free". Wetek Play 2 is just a media/tv player.

    @Thrall can you confirm the issue with EPG only showing now and next and so limiting the recording to current and next show? Thanks

    Yes i can confirm this happens with some services, as we are limited to the provided signal we receive from the provider.

    But our team is currently working intensively on this matter, to implement a new way to have EPG information.

    Good to hear they are going to try and sort the EPG. Needs to be from data stream.

    I've been researching and I don't think I'm really into Wetek Play 2. It's good to be able to have a media center with sat channels but it's not really the most practical think for the family to use. Since it comes with a tuner I suggest Wetek support it more like integrate a proper **** emulator otherwise it's just a "waste of tuners".

    I think I will buy a Wetek when it has proper enigma2 support or a very good sat integration on android. Maybe they should make an enigma2 dedicated box or a good multiboot enigma2/android. That would be awesome.

    I guess I'll stick with an enigma2 box and a separate media center because currently no company has made a good job making a 2in1.

    Enigma already exist for wetek play 2, although we do not give support, some members of the community are already using enigma2 for wetek play 2.

    That's nice for the people who had already bought the Play 2 but someone who's yet to buy a receiver I think it's preferable a dedicated enigma2 with lower specs but more stable than a good specs Play 2 but with some (maybe a lot) of bugs and no guarantee that someone is going to work on it. I like Wetek as a brand so I'd love to see an Enigma2 dedicated Wetek. When and if that happens I'll buy one without any doubts.

    Really? Team is working to implement a new way to have EPG info in order to bypass now and next carrier limitation?
