GT Media V8 Finder 2

Post by Krees »

Hey guys,
Has anyone here purchased the recent sat finder 'GTMedia V8 Finder 2', I was impressed to know that it's charging port is a USB type C port rather than the usual round DC port. I would like to know if it also has an active tuner? By active tuner, I mean does the LNB power fluctuate when tracking or is it just fixed till you nail the bird?

Yes, I confirm that an USB type C port is present for recharging the device.
I don't understand well the meaning of the second question: do you mean when the motor is moving? If so, yes, the lnb poer is always on.

My unit is due in a few days and I can look then.

Do you mean does it offer an option for motor move speed?

A notice: for having Wi-Fi working, it's mandatory to have an USB dongle compatible with the Finder's hardware. I tested with a dongle with Ralink 5370 chip and it works.
