ALi M3733 Dual Core ARM Cortex-A9 in DVB-T2 & DVB-S2 TV Boxes


Ali M3733 dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor will soon be found in DVB set-top boxes like Uyesee L100T2 with a DVB-T2 tuner. You can find out a bit more about Uyesee L100T2 and its user interface in the video below.


Ali M3733 also be found in EKT DSD7045 DVB-S2 hybrid set-top box (data sheet). The former is running Android 4.4, but the latter is likely based on Linux since it only has 512MB NAND flash.

Uyesee L100T2The EKT DSD7045 Satellite receiver runs SolidTV middleware with HbbTV, conditional access, and more features, and it does look like an interesting product, but I’ll focus on the Uyesse for this post:

Uyesee will showcase their L100T2 box and other products at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair on April 13-16, 2015.

EKT DSD7045The box runs Android 4.4.4 with a customized version of XBMC/Kodi with “dolby dts hardware decoding”. Uyesee box specifications do not have any codec listed, but I found some details on the EKT device:

I’m assuming the 720p limitation is only for transcoding and H.265, and that common codec like H.264 / MPEG-4, MPEG-2 can all be decoded in Full HD.
