High thanks Peter for the great work on the firestick 4k. Mine is not 
reliable but that is possibly due to the local broadcast standard. I am 
receiving UK DVB-S2 from Astra 28.2 - Freesat which is 1280i 50Hz. Could 
you release a 32 bit binary of the latest build so I can retest. 
Incidentally I am displaying on a UHD TV, will try forcing it into HD 
when testing next time.

Has anybody else got reliable operation with UK broadcast standard?
