Reccomendations for a “French” TV decoder for fancy new TV

After 8 years with a Samsung 46inch we have finally bought a new fancy up to date smart TV.
As this is our main TV we were prepared to spend.
Finally chose a Samsung QLED Q9 55 inch.
We have a dish with a double LNB in the garden with two decoders connected to the TV.
A HUMAX for U.K. TV that has a hard disc for recording and a STRONG for French TV which does not record and is quite old.
One of the fancy things the new TV does is allowing control of the Decoders on screen which means the “one remote” which comes with the TV can control everything.

However small problem.
When the TV was set up it immediately recognised the HUMAX but while “seeing” the STRONG did not recognise the model. While it can be switched on as it comes up as “unknown HDMI 2”
Channel changing needs the use of the “old” remote.
So looking to buy a new “French” decoder Perhaps with RECORDING capabilities in France (we live just across the border in Luxembourg)
Has anyone have a particular recommendation for a decoder and have I heard correctly that there are some changes coming in 2019 with French Satelite TV.
Thanks.
