After the big success of the QBoxHD Duolabs is glad to introduce in the market the new QBox mini.
In response to consumer demand for higher-performing Set Top Boxes Linux
Operating System based Duolabs has worked to develop the evolution of
the successful QBox HD.
QBox High Definition is the latest frontier for HDTV Set-Top-Box, it is
capable of delivering the features and high-end performance Multimedia
Machine with many native peripherals such as USB connection, Ethernet
connection via cable (10/100Mbit), multiple plug ‘n play tuner input,
HDD support for PVR (Personal Video Recording) functions.
All the above technology and much more has combined with an exclusive
colored box design and cap-sense technology integrated for front-panel
functions together with a brilliant 2,0 inches TFT display.
Diablo CAM with DuoCrypt CAS technology is embedded as module like the Q-Box One.
QBox Mini is also an advanced Multimedia Center.
IPOD, IPhone connection (first Set Top Box in the market having this function)
MyTube Player (IP TV)
And much much more...
Q-Box High Definition is based on ST chipset model STi7101 (ST40 with
SH4 Core) with working speed at 266Mhz with 8MByte of NOR ROM for secure
bootloader storage and 128 MB of system RAM.
As co-processor there is a 32Bit MCU embedded in the Diablo CAM module
internally installed operating at the speed of 50Mhz. This co-processor
will manage the streaming input delayer function for better PVR operating.
Internally mounted there is a USB stick of 2GB (this
capacity can change, please check on your sales configuration) for
application and content storage. This user space is very necessary for
developers to store and run their applications or simply to store some
QBox mini is based on Linux Operating System kernel release 184.108.40.206
(or higher) and DVB-API version 3 and version 5 (DVB-S2) which
represents the right answer for open source based Set Top Boxes.
The Linux DVB API (Application Programming Interface) lets you control
these hardware components through currently six Unix-style character
devices for video, audio, frontend, de-mux, CA and IP-over-DVB
QBox High Definition uses as middleware the popular Enigma II with all its features and plug-ins.
The filesystem is hosted in an external USB stick of 2GB slim format
which can be easily removed from the back side of the receiver and used
in a PC to download the new firmware inside the receiver.
The USB stick is used instead of internal memory so that the QBoxHD can
have larger room to host more files, videos etc with NO space
limitation. QBox mini is the first Set Top Box having this feature
The QBox High Definition has two different and independent DVB Tuner
slots where users can mount Plug ‘n Play tuners module. DVB-S2, DVB-T
and DVB-C can be installed. Please check the sales configuration before
purchasing. Multiple LNB-Switching control (supports DiSEqC) is also
QBox mini has a LAN connection at 10/100Mbit via cable connection and it
also may host a WLAN Module as plug-in easy to plug and play.
