Edision mio 4k Unboxing and Design

The receiver Edision OS Mio 4k comes packed with a cardboard box of medium / high quality, with good silkscreen and colorful. This box in the back contains the technical characteristics of the receiver that we will see in this analysis in more detail.

When we open the box we find first the user manual and below it what is the receiver and other elements of the receiver, all well accommodated and covered with a bag to avoid unnecessary scratches.

In the Box

  1. Receiver user manual

  2. Wifi antenna connection to the receiver

  3. Remote control

  4. Receiver connector to the electric current

  5. HDMI cable

  6. Batteries for the remote control

  7. Infrared connector for remote control

The receiver Edision OS Mio 4k is a receiver of reduced dimensions that can be found in black and white colors, in a grid pattern with rounded edges and vertices to soften its design, this having the lower part and sides designed for the ventilation of the same, having in the front part screen printed the 7-segment luminous receiver and LCD model that basically shows the time, as well as power and channel change buttons.

  1. Two connectors for the wifi antenna that the receiver incorporates from the factory

  2. Connector for the power cable

  3. Input for satellite tuner and tdt 

  4. HDMI input

  5. Entry for two USB

  6. 1/100 ethernet input

  7. Entry for the card reader

  8. IR input for infrared remote control

  9. Input for rs232 connection

The remote control for our taste is large, with a mechanical type button and not very sensitive, is one of the things that I liked the receiver less, being somewhat uncomfortable in use compared to the remote control of other receivers.
The receiver Edision OS Mio 4k has a CPU to 1500 MHz of 2 cores , which give this receiver a great power, which make enigma2 work with great fluidity, the receiver in addition to being very fluid in the handling of any enigma image2 , the processes like restart of guy or complete reset of the receiver we have carried out a test of time that takes in different actions:
  1. Gui reinforcement: 12 seconds

  2. Full restart: 55 seconds

  3. Search channels: 8 minutes 23 s

  4. Blind search: 9 minutes 10 seconds to find 1375 in astra satellite

  5. Access to kodi: 1 second

In terms of RAM the receiver Edision OS Mio 4k has 2 GB of DDR4 memory sufficient for handling enigma2, and a flash memory of 8 GB, in terms of ram memory to mention that the use of the system only leaves about 700 megabytes free , I think that in this aspect could improve since other receivers with this size of ram leave us free around 1.2 GB, also commenting that the flash memory is partitioned in 4 partitions of 1.7 GB each, being able to introduce in each partition a different image and independent what is called multiboot.
Regarding tuner as we mention the Edision OS Mio 4k has a satellite tuner AVL6261 DVB-s2x that allows us to view multistream content as well as a tuner dual TDT / cable VL6762.
The change of channel between DTT and SAT and vice versa has hovered around 2-3 seconds.
In general, the satellite tuner, although its operation is correct, we have noticed a reduction of signal with respect to other receivers, as well as with suitable LNB its operation is not so fluid when it has to take a signal for the first time.
Another aspect that we liked is that it has built-in wifi antenna to make network connections without network cable, which is a very appropriate extra, and if we want to connect via wifi because we saved a USB / wifi adapter, the receiver in the box contains the two antennas to make the connection in its back
Regarding the ethernet card of the receiver Edision OS Mio 4k is a weak point of the receiver since it supports 10/100 speed, that is to say, it is not gigabit, understanding that it is another of the extra aspects where the manufacturer has reduced costs.
The image enigma2 that the receiver of the factory takes is OpenAtv version 6.2, of which we have made a screenshot of information of the same one:
This image as any other receiver that we use allows us to use the receiver with the typical and general functions of all enigma2 receivers, although to mention as extra information that it is compatible with:
  1. Pip to be able to split the screen in two

  2. HBBTV for channels that use this function

  3. Kodi that allows visualizing multimedia with the own Kodi player

  4. Blind search

CONCLUSIONS

  1. A receiver Edision OS Mio 4k that in power and capacity CPU is a high-end deco, with 2 GB of RAM

  2. That has satellite tuner and tdt (combo), for users who want to have both broadcasts.

  3. Another positive aspect is the incorporation of internal Wifi

  4. The materials used in both housing and interiors are of the middle class and original and small design.

The price of the receiver is around € 160 that perhaps once made several tests and compared with receivers like the octagon sf8008 perhaps in our opinion is somewhat expensive in price quality. 
In my opinion, it is a perfect receiver for those who want to start in this of enigma2 receivers, and do not need any extras, and basically want it to watch satellite channels and tdt.
In general taking into account characteristics, price and quality I value it in 6/10.
