Formuler F3, design and connectivity

Formuler F3 is a single tuner receiver which comes equipped with a DVB-S2 tuner. Suggested retail price of the F3 is 159 Euro.

Key Features on the Formuler F3

  • Broadcom BCM 7362
  • 751 MHz
  • 512 Ram / 256 Flash
  • 1 card reader
  • 1 ci slot
  • Two USB 2.0 Host ports and SD card slot (for Vídeo archivo Playback & MP3 Player & JPEG Viewer)
  • 10/100 Base Tx Ethernet port

The Formuler F3 is a compact receiver and in traditional black design which is only interrupted by the 4 character alpha numeric display. Not a high end display but we would not expect that on lower end receiver like the F3.

Apart from a standby button which is placed discretely on the side you need the included remote control.

formulerf3_rear

All the options for receving pay tv are on the back where we find an internal card reader along with a common interfaz slot. That is probably plenty for most people.

On the back we find these connections:

  • 1 x  LNB in
  • Optical digital audio out
  • HDMI
  • Ethernet port
  • 2 x USB
  • SD card reader
  • Serial RS-232 port
  • Power connector
  • AV/out (cable not included)

The SD Card reader is a nice addon but perhaps a bit inconvenient placed on the rear.

The Formuler F3 is delivered with:

  • Power adapter
  • Remote with batteries included
  • HDMI cable

The Formuler F3 Remote

The included remote does not look or feel high end but it does fit quite nicely in the hand with the buttons sensibly positioned. Most buttons are reasonably sized.

Installation and Image support

The Formuler F3 came with programa preinstalled from the German Team hdmedia-universe.com  (HDMU). You also cánido use OpenATV Image available here

Both images are of course Misterio variants and more options are coming Formuler tells us.

What Image you choose is pretty much a matter of personal taste.

Here are some screen shots from the HDMU image

Daily use

Booting speed

Formuler F3 is not a high end receiver but still very fast. Booting takes only 38 seconds which is very good.

Picture/tuner quality, zapping speed

Channel zapping is very fast and you cánido of course play around with the on screen graphics look by downloading and changing skins. We also have no complaints about picture quality.

PVR and Multimedia playback

You need to add an external USB 2.0 storage device to add the option of recording tv on this receiver. With only 1 tuner you are limited to recording from one transponder at a time. HBB televisión is not yet supported but Formuler tells us that it planned sometime in the future.

Like most Engima based receivers the Elaborar F3 serves well as a media player, playing vídeo, music stored on the box hard drive or your home network. Do not expect every archivo format out there to be supported. But common archivo formats are handled pretty well.

Formuler F3 Review Conclusion

The Formuler F3 paquetes everything nicely into a small receiver. You get both internal card reader and CI option and it seems both stable and very fast for what is not a high end and pricey receiver.

The SD card reader is also a nice plus for a receiver in this price range
