One of the largest manufacturers of tuners, the company is Strong, introduced its new product: a digital tuner DVB-T/T2 with possibility of Internet connection - Strong SRT 8530. The tuner is already on sale, its price is around 40-45 dollars (1150 UAH), so it is natural that this model has attracted interest from potential buyers, because the same media box with the ability to view digital channels are at least 1000 UAH. more expensive (about $ 100.e.)
Let us examine in detail what we offer for the money that you can and know how Strong SRT 8530 let's Begin, by tradition, with external inspection. The front panel of the tuner is quite nice and informative (well, finally, in less than five years ). You have a good bright display, button local control (on/off and channel switching), as well as a USB slot under the cultural cover - that is all that is needed and would like - is.
The rear panel has a pretty good set of sockets for connecting and switching equipment. Have a second USB slot, antenna input, a connector for connecting the tuner to the Internet socket digital audio out (given the presence of Dolby - you can expect a good five-canalso sound), HDMI port, analog outputs image and audio to 3 RCA type "Tulip", a Jack for external blopa power supplied and the power button-do not disable consoles. I guess the habit is still stuck in the inscription Japan , that was something from the Japanese equipment, but manufacturer - China honestly is specified on the rear panel.
A system Irdeto Cloaked CA guarantees the viewing of channels in that case, if our hedgehogs again to resolve them to code (remember that at the moment all channels are open and they can make any console or TV with the DVB-T2 standard). As for the rest - nothing has changed, the same 32 channels, the same functions as its predecessors.
Very pleased with the system Dolby® Digital Plus (E-AC3) and sockets digital audio output, thanks to which you can connect a normal audio receiver and enjoy multichannel sound.
Entry - Yes, but! all with the same limitations: you can record any TV intensity on the external flash drive, however you can play your recording only on that tuner or similar, alas
It's nice that finished media unit, it now supports almost all known formats besides ISO images and some other "pirate" type, but if you swing films from the Internet in a week or two after its release and like the quality, don't worry.
Tuner Strong SRT 8530 is connected to the Internet portal Strong, which gives the ability to access audio-video files, news, weather, entertainment portals, social networks... but only those who are registered on the portal strong, anything else you add there will not...
Why? And because it's not on Android and its code-the firmware is closed and controlled by the manufacturer. What does it mean? Well, at least the fact that on play sheets m3u or m3u8 with portals and online stream of their channels you can forget you download.
YouTube is there, but ex.ua, megogo.net and other our favorite portals listed here (maybe someday will be - unknown). Instagram is, but there is no Skype, a bunch of foreign language channels there. IPTV from your ISP will not work as long as the provider does not contract with Strong on his stream.
If Strong SRT 8530 was the operating system Android it for the money, it could be called one of the best offerings on the market, but it's a little late, about three years, at least. The advantage of Android is that it can stick to anything, just download the playlists from well-known forums and here you have a bunch of favorite online applications with their channels. Some banned? Not a problem, the output will be found... and then - oops, what you watch and what is not is decided by the manufacturer
Flash Strong SRT 8530 new firmware just got easier, now update software) can be done not only over the air or with the stick, but also through Internet online.
