Cable & Terrestrial with a DVB-C/T/T2 tuner?


Forum Supporter
Is it possible to view both cable and terrestrial together with a DVB-C/T/T2 tuner? I.e. can you combine both the terrestrial and cable signal into one cable and tune in both cable and terrestrial channels together or does it have to be cable OR terrestrial.

I would like to be able to use terrestrial version of certain channels (i.e. Channel 4HD, FreeSport HD) as the cable versions can be unreliable. I don't currently have a terrestrial aerial just now to be able to test this myself.

It depends on what box you have and whether it's a twin tuner or dual tuner.
If there's only one input then both tuners have to be configured to the input source.
If there are 2 inputs you can use one for cable and one for terrestrial.

Say for instance I have a single tuner and a combined cable for both terrestrial and cable tv and tried to tune in DVB-C, would it only see cable channels or might it pick up the freeview signal too? I understand there could be some clashes where frequency is the same but assuming they didn't clash, would you expect freeview to be tunable via DVB-C?
