    Just wondered if anyone had tried Full Band Capture (FBC) tuners?
    I came across this advert this morning.

    The VU + Uno 4K offers Plug & Play Full Band Capture (FBC) tuners for the first time and thus speedy program changes. The built-in tuner slot provides space for a DVB-S2 FBC or a DVB-C FBC tuner. Great specification includes Gigabit LAN interface as well as USB 3.0 ports.

    What is a DVB-S2 FBC Twin Tuner?
    A DVB-S2 FBC Twin Tuner has 8 demodulators.
    For two conventional (e.g., twin LNB) satellite feeds, the tuner is comparable to two conventional and six additional tuners that operate in the loop mode. This allows you to view, stream, or record stations from 8 different transponders from two different satellites simultaneously.
    In SCR mode (Unicable) with 8 frequencies, this corresponds to 8 conventional tuners.

    What is a DVB-C FBC tuner?
    A DVB-C FBC tuner has 8 demodulators. This corresponds to a receiver with 8 conventional DVB-C tuners.
    You can view, stream, or record 8 stations at the same time.

    EDIT: Sorry, meant to put this in General Satellite rather than General Chat if a mod could move it please?

    I've got 8 now. I've been replacing my H2S's with ones that ViX support. I will have to start flogging off some of the surplus and buy one of these!
