Hi,

I have atm a single DVB-S2 tuner card.

Recording one channel and watching another one on the same transponder works !

BUT if I record one channel, switch to the other on the same transponder and press "Record" again it obviously stops recording the first .. is it a bug or a feature ? I guess if I could watch a channel it should be possible to record it ..

What are your experiences, possibly with other backends ? How does it work with a multituner setup ?

PS: what I miss - if a channel is recoreded it would be nice if the channelslist would only show the really available channels like the satellite recievers do ...

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Server, Xfce, XBMC Gotham, Skin reFred, tvheadend tv backend
ASUS P8H61-M LE/USB3, Celeron G530, Geforce 210, 4 GB DDR3 RAM
16 GB CnMemory 300x CF, 1 TB Samsung 2,5" HDD

I have one DVB-T tuner and a Dual DVB-S2 tuner. I can record multiple channels at once, so I don't really check to see what tuner it is using.


I agree it would be nice to see that list somehow - how do another satellite recievers do it? I haven't used a Sky-HD box for a while...

Have you tried different ways like timer or instant recording ? I tried it with timer recording too - and it didn't work :-(

My sat-receivers simply cut the channels list to what is available. If you press "channels" or simply switch through the list with +/- there are only these channels that are accessible. .. I guess it would require some tv backend work to enable it .. Any ideas if VDR or MythTV master that task ?
