    Can you suggest an FTA set top box suitable for Q-band LNA input with inbuilt dual channel (2.4/5 Gb) Wifi capability with output video capability of 4K resolution for Android TV?

      Must check before buying that Set-Top boxes should be supported by the latest technologies like HEVC and DVB-S2X. Although you have an Android TV so you should buy a Linux box without wifi.
