The NEW MAG256 IPTV Set-Top Box with EU Power Supply

The new MAG256 is a high-performance Set-Top Box solution with new STiH301chipset. The STB is using HEVC technology for provision of high quality video with more velocity. Owing to enhanced capabilities of MAG256 Set-Top Box, it became possible to playback the video of quality up to Full HD and to use intensive applications

Our Test - So Far
We have been running the New MAG256 in our office for most of this month, and its working fine.  However sometimes when we reload the portal the sound just goes, so you have to reload again. On changing channels we have noticed that the picture is choppy for about 5 seconds, it looks like this is just when filling up the buffer, as the box have double the memory. But once loaded its fine,

The MAG256 seems to give a far more stable picture than the MAG254. I think if you do not mind having to update the unit for a bit, until they sort the bugs out, then its worth getting one. But we do NOT recommend this for new customers buying one of these until at lest a few more months in the field.

Please Note The MAG256 does not come supplied with any IPTV portals already loaded, In order to view TV channels you will need to purchase a subscription.

Faster and more powerful media processor ARM Cortex A9 1.5 GHz; HEVC support; USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports to connect external carriers and Wi-Fi adapters.
