QBox Mini - High Definition Linux Set Top Box
After the big success of the QBox HD, Duolabs is glad to introduce in the market the new QBox Mini.
DuoCrypt Conditional Access embedded.
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 Mini 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 HD - Front View
Main CPU, 32 Bit Co-Processor Storage memory and RAM:
QBox Mini 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 1GB (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 contents.
Operating System and environment:
QBox Mini is based on Linux Operating System kernel release 188.8.131.52 (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 networking.
QBox Mini uses as middleware the popular Enigma 2 with all its features and plug-ins.
The filesystem is hosted in an external USB stick of 1GB 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 QBox Mini can have larger room to host more files, videos etc with NO space limitation. QBox Mini and QBox HD are the first Set Top Boxes having this feature available.

The QBox Mini 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 included.
