    Important Infos:


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Record one channel, watch another channel for multi-connection XC portals, what means this exactly?


    This means, your provider XC Api subscription need to have at least two lines/connections to record one channel and watch another channel. With one single line you don`t need even to try, because it will not work.

    Once again, Xtreme Codes Api (XC Api) connection with two included lines/connections works and with single subscription line not.



    Nice XC Api works, what is with MAC/ID Stalker portal connection?


    With Stalker subscription is recording and watching not possible. Stalker use always one single line/connection for iptv and registered MAC/ID address.

    Means, if you want to use this feature with your box, then you need to speak with your provider and change to XC Api connection.



    Does it works with M3U Playlist?


    Yes it works also with M3U playlist, but you should first speak with your provider if you allowed to use this feature with single or need two lines at same time for M3U playlist.

    The user assumes any risk of ban in this case! This depends fully from your provider and permission. Formuler is not responsible for any bans in this case. Pleas check this first with your provider before you use this feature with your m3u playlist.

  • Want to share with our Community some pictures from new Beta. Btw. the EPG loading text and icon are gone, loading in background ;)


  • Hello I hope I’m doing this right. Sorry if I’m not. Is it true with new update we can now record a different channel than what we are watching ? Thank you very much for the help. Take care 😀😀:):)

  • update looks great! Cannot wait to test it out. I am curious, what is the icon in the top right, to the left of the signal strength?


    I think it shows that you're connected by wire and not wifi (it looks like a RJ45 connector)

    Thats`s correct, if you are connected with wifi then the icon looks like on picture and Ethernet icon is gone.


  • Hello

    I must be doing something wrong. I go to setting/software/press 0227 and see red button with Beta test software, but when I press red button it changes to official software, doesnt give me option to upgrade to beta
