A Small ElegantHDTV Receiver 
HDTV Satellite and IPTV Receiver 
AZBox Ultra HD
The series of HDTV boxes from AZBox has a new additionto the family: the small AZBox Ultra HD that just like its bigbrother, the AZBox Premium HD Plus (see our test report inTELE-satellite issue 04-05/2010), is also shipped from thefactory in an elegant package. Upon opening the package,
you’ll nd that there are two separate boxes. One of the
boxes contains the receiver while the other box has theexternal power supply and the remote control.
We here in the test centerlike this arrangement for two
reasons: rst of all no exces
-sive heat buildup will take
place within the tight connesof the AZBox Ultra HD and
second, if the power supplywere to ever fail, it would
be easy to replace it. AZBox
continues to be a frontrunnerwhen it comes to features likethis.
The AZBox Ultra HD is
completely black and comesoff as being noble and digni-
ed. On the front panel aresix buttons that can be used
to control the receiver in theabsence of the remote con-trol. There are also two status
LEDs for power and LAN.
CI slots are not to be found

AZBox Ultra HD
Fully Equipped Satelliteand Internet HDTV Receiver 
although there is a card slotlocated on the side of thereceiver. This card slot wasnot activated in our testreceiver; this option has been
saved for future rmware
versions.The receiver is nicelyequipped: it comes with a
DVB-S2 tuner input as well
as a looped through output,
an HDMI interface, three RCA jacks for YUV, a 0/12V jack,an RJ45 and USB 2.0 inter
-
face, three additional RCA jacks for CVBS and analog
audio, an optical digital audiooutput and a main powerswitch. These interfaces canall be found on the rear panel.Its technical data such as a
Linux operating system, two128 MB DDR memory mod
-ules (one for the receiver andthe other for the video dis-
play) and a 300 MHz CPU pro
-vides an overall very positiveimpression.The included remote con-trol is somewhat small such
that, for example, the PVR
buttons are sitting so close toeach other that some users
might have difculty withthem. Otherwise the overall
workmanship of the remoteis quite good as we have to
come to expect from AZBox.Since this receiver is fairlynew, our test box didn’t come
with a user manual; but onewill be available by the timeproduction begins. And if theuser manual will be anything
like that for the Premium orElite HD, then for the UltraHD it’ll be just as detailed and
valuable.
As soon as the box is turnedon for the rst time, theAZBox Setup menu appears.Since this receiver can receivenot only DVB-S2 signals butcan also be used as an IPTVbox to access the Internet,it’s not surprising to nd a
multitude of different set-tings. It starts with select-ing the desired languageand setting the clock to thecorrect time. In addition toEnglish, French and German,the receiver can also be set
to Portuguese, Dutch, Czech,Russian, Spanish, Polish,Serbian, Hungarian, Greek,Bulgarian, Slovakian and
Turkish. The desired audioand subtitle language can beselected directly in the set-tings menu.
As you would expect with
any decent digital receiver,
the AZBox can adjust the
internal clock automaticallyvia satellite. Thanks to thenetwork connection and theresulting link to the Internet,the receiver can also get thetime signal via the Internet- this is a new feature for asatellite receiver.
And while we’re on the sub
- ject of the Internet, in orderto make this receiver com-patible with a network, thereare naturally some additionalsettings that need to betaken care of even if this only
means acquiring a valid IPaddress through DHCP.If the network doesn’t havean integrated DHCP server,then the IP address, subnetmask, gateway and DNS
server can be entered manu-ally.

The OSD shows that a
network connection canbe achieved not only with
the RJ45 jack but also withWLAN. Unfortunately wecouldn’t activate the WLAN
option during our tests and
the technical specications
also did not suggest that thenecessary hardware was evenavailable.
Since the reception of IPTV
requires a fast Internet con-nection, the manufacturer
included a Speedtest in theAZBox so that you can check
for yourself to see if yourInternet connection is good
enough for IPTV and other
media content.
The AZBox uses every
aspect of a network connec-
tion so that, for example, anFTP server as well as a le
server and a Telnet serverare available; they can be
activated and congured asneeded in the Setup menu.
The manufacturer eventhought of the use of a
dynamic DNS service so that
the receiver can be accessedanywhere in the world not
only through an IP address
but also through an easy toremember domain that youcan set up for free at www.
dyndns.org. More on this sub
-
 ject can be found for exam
-ple in TELE-satellite issue
06-07/2010.Just like with the external
power supply, the manufac-
turer also opted for an exter
-nal hard drive. In so doing,
AZBox has remained true to
the concept of simplicity andabove all leaving the harddrive choice up to the enduser.To make sure that the cus-
tomer doesn’t have to rst
open up the receiver in orderto install or swap out a harddrive, the manufacturer fash-ioned a cover on the top side
of the box that is held in place
with just a few screws thusproviding easy access to thehard drive. This makes it easy
for anyone to add or exchange
a hard drive. Through a cor-responding entry in the setupmenu, the hard drive can beformatted and made available
for use in the AZBox.
Thanks to the integrated
DVB-S2 tuner, the AZBox is
perfect for reception of high
resolution content. Naturally,the matching HDMI video
output must also be there
and can be set for 576i, 576p,720p, 1080i and 1080p.If your TV doesn’t have anHDMI input, the video signalcan also be supplied via YUV,S-Video and CVBS. Along with
that, there are a variety of modes available to display a
4:3 signal on a 16:9 TV.The AZBox has a multitude
of audio settings options let-ting you match this receiver
