    I'm currently using a TBS6985 DVB-S2 quad tuner, but we have reception issues - seems to be caused internally in the server - I moved the card to another slot recently and it got a lot worse, moving it up another slot improved things but we still have occasional reception problems - the satellite tuner in our TV gives a perfect picture.

    So I was looking for a DVB-T2 card, and then stumbled upon the SiliconDust HDHomeRun CONNECT QUATRO, which is an external box, so can be installed anywhere, which seems a good idea, and will save a slot in the server - I'm looking to upgrade the motherboard in my server as it's ten years old, and newer motherboards that fit my requirements for other things seem to lack PCIe slots, meaning my current three cards will use them all up.

    So my question is, can Mediaportal record more than 4 channels with the HDHomeRun CONNECT QUATRO ?

    To answer my own question, yes it will if they are on four or less multiplex's.

    Just tried recording BBC 1 SD, BBC 1 HD, BBC 2 HD, ITV HD and CH 4 HD and it used just one tuner.

    What is the status of the fix? I seem to be hitting this exact problem at channel 24 (in Seattle it is KUNS-DT).

    No experience at all with sat stuff, but do TBS provide (or suggest) viewing/test software that will work with their cards? (You'll need to stop MP TV Server running when you do this - use the 'Manual Control' tab in TV server config to stop/start it - as it won't share tuners with other software).

    OK, this is specifically for people in Belgium (Vlaanderen) who are using Telenet Cable with MediaPortal 2. Next year (Edit: this year, in march 2020) the Telenet provider will stop broadcasting Analog TV and Radio signals on their cable, and make the switch to Digital (DVB-C). The radio signals will disappear completely, so you'll...

    I am still here, thanks for the input, so I have now settled on mp1, I am not afraid of a lot of tweaking. Good news on tuners is I can run side by side with my WMC setup, as my tuners are using DVBlink to combine channels for WMC, so WMC is using 8 virtual tuners from DVBlink while MP is using the tuners directly. Of course they are...
