Do you guys know if and when the viark drs2 will be put back on the market? I was told they stopped production due to chip shortage.

You will have to go onto the well known internet auction websites. I bought a second hand Viark DROI this way.

It's risky, but it has worked out well for me. Just ask questions before you purchase and insist on pictures.

I'm always using various function (Sat / Filter etc) buttons on the Viark / GTMedia which aren't on the normal TV remote so even with CEC it would likely be a bit of a pain in the bum.

This one of my earlier channels lists it has lots in it, it is your choice as you could just do a blind scan on both the sats you want.
I have a question regarding Sky DE and Sky Austria.
Does your channel list include Sky Sport 1-10, Sky Bundesliga 1-10 and Sky Sport Austria 1-8 ??
Thanks

I ordered it, it arrives on Monday 🙂💥
You should throw it straight in bin bud. You'll hate it. Why you bought one ill never no :rolleyes:

Ive a Gligablue UE FBC Tuners and the Viark 4k.

Guess what receiver i watch the most ! The Viark 4k half the price of the UE third of the price of your VU+ and neither of them have SP1 or will it open anything near what the Viark does.

Live with it's quirkiness and enjoy it. Continuingly berating it because you're comparing it to other far more expensive receivers has no place on this thread.

I know very well that they are two totally different decoders. It wasn't my intention to offend the viark, and it should be thanked because it gives us this possibility.. I was just looking for something with a more modern interface, that's all. If one day E2 returns to give light... we'll talk about it again, but I see it hard 😔

Actually no idea mate until i get home and have a look at at the channel list. Probably not as i think i did not do a blind scan.

I find it a bit silly that you have to scan Sky DE every single day if you want to watch all the football matches that are on additional Sky De channels like for example Sky Bundesliga 2-10, Sky Sport 2-10- Sky Sport Austria 1-8 )
These channels are available only during live games.
There are few live broadcasts at the moment
