Anyway going forward, as I cannot get any answers from TM owner anymore, no replies to emails etc regarding issues which need resolving etc I will not be persevering any further with this stb.

As I cant use a diseqc switch with motor/fixed dish as the sw won't allow it, it's of no use to me and I was only helping further to help others.

Unless you have a card that needs reading or you need scart, buy the Mini One for half the money, it's no better or worse than M4 according to @kippysat and half the money so is a bargain.
Just remember theres no way to renew the fs.
I live in Hertfordshire, but have friends in Mill Hill, Barnet and the North London area, so it is easy for me to get to the Edmonton store.
I bought my first satellite box the 5402 M3 from them a few years ago
and then continued going back for other bits every now and then and
also calling a lot for help.

As a result I developed a good relationship with them. I was enthusiastic and maybe a bit of a pain always asking questions, but
I was just curious. I am not a tester, just an end user who is a
bit geeky.

As they got to know me better I asked what the future plans were and
they explained that an upgrade on the M3 was coming and then hopefully
a twin tuner version after that. I gave them my name and telephone
number and asked to be called as soon as the new M4 arrived.

The M4 ended up being delayed, so they suggested I buy the Mini-One
instead as it had just arrived. That's why they called me. I then
started playing with it and let them know what I thought. It was
good at some things, but didn't have Multistream which I wanted.

Fast forward to this year and they let me know that Multistream was
now available on the latest software that they had. I asked for
help on other stuff and they pointed me in the direction of this website.

After, joining the forum and finding it wonderful, I went back to the
store and sung it's praises. He mentioned that he knew the "Manic" name
and that you were a great help to them and had been communicating for
ages.

I sincerely apologise if I have caused any offence by being so open,
but I would appeal to you to not give up on them please.

They strike me as nice people, but currently under enormous pressure.
I asked about FS and 7 day EPG as well and he just said it was
being worked on but needed more time.

I am more than willing to loan you my Mini-One if you want to test
how well it works with a motorised setup. I can only attest to the
disecq working via a 4 way switch very well, but can't say if it
controls a motorised setup well.

The FS can not be renewed which is a very major issue also
and diseqc switch needs supported ...

@ kippysat if you do have some source that you can contact regarding these problems it would be very appreciated if those problems could get looked at sometime soon ??
as it is just small issues that separate this TM5402 M4 from being a really standard box to becoming a very decent box IMHO .
Hi Barney,

I have been told that there is a new software update available for download from Technomate website that fixes all the
CAM module issues. I haven't tried it as I don't use that
facility at the moment, so haven't loaded the software.

What I have worked out is that FS is renewed in the sense that at the moment if you bought either the M4 or the Mini and started today, it would run until End of Oct 22.

Then in Nov 22 buy a new one and you get 15 months again.

Obviously not ideal, but until there is a fix that seems to be the
only way to do it.

@kippysat
Just so you know a renewal for fs is £15-20 for a year.
Only a madman would buy a new stb every 15 months?
Without renewal facilities, the M4 is overpriced 1080p stb, with renewal facilities its a decent price.

Last patch available on dl centre is 5 july latest official sw on TM site is july 5, I sent barney test sw 13 july for cam issues, it did not resolve it and also messed up the functions on stb.
There is still no editor, which means it has no long term support factored in , as you pay extra for editors

This is what was feared by most. Who throws away any sat box after 15 months ? Let alone just to renew a FS sub. All the other FS boxes can renew when expired . If this is the case and i hope you are wrong £100 for 15 months for a HD box is ridiculous and once more Technomate fail again.

Anyone reading this under these FS renewal terms buy yourself a Startsat or Viark model.

Blade,

I can't argue with your reasoning, it's a fair point.
