Hi


I just picked up a UTV RCA 490 and upgraded it to 3.7(finally).


Is there away to test the two tuners before subscribing to DTV?


Thanx

I ran a line in and got good signal strength on both tuners. Would that mean that both tuners are working correctly?

If you checked each transponder that you will be using on both tuners (I forget which ones are unneeded) it should be fine. If not, D* has a Tivo 4U. :)

Hi,


If you had "two" lines and tested them side by side you'd probably get better results.


Let the system warm up some before you decide if they are 100% or not. (Remember during operation to keep your UTV in the open for cooler operation) Not sure if the History Log still works on an unsubbed UTV, but that is easy to test... Put both tuners on-line and then take one off... There should be a tuner status change entry in the History Log...
