from past experience a refurb is a not first quaility it may have a scracth or a cosmetic delmish or could have been previously in someones house and they used it and returned it eitherway it's not new
Since this is a refurb. I will be thoughly Testing the new TV tuner for OTA on it's own to make sure it's working 100%.
?1.so I can't just disable each current tuner logicalley (in contol panel, device manager, disable) and just leave plugged in?
?2.I can easliey unplug the 950 becauce it's a USB however the 1800 is a internal PCI type that would be much more involved remember I have my PC inside a TV wooden cabinet.
?3.When you say "You could also simply disconnect the existing tuners while running setup and then plug them back in when you're done. This would be the simplest solution, IMHO."
is this unplugging the antenna feed so the module won't get signal? or physicalley removing module? I like the simplest solution
The third option could be a option for the future.
