Best tuner for UK freesat?


Post by kennyken » Wed Nov 24, 2021 6:38 am

As titled I've just got my first home and I have a satellite dish. May retire my terratec dvbt for Freesat? Any recommendations on a tuner for this preferably HD as my screen/monitor is 4k. Thanks. Ken.

I've always had good experiences with the tuners from TBS to be honest.

I had the 6981 for years (it died in an unfortunate coffee related incident), then I went to the 6982 and I also have the 6985.

I also use the 6280 for Freeview and that's been great too.

Obviously the stability of your setup can depend on motherboard manufacturer / the particular PCIe revision it has etc.

Anybody else have any other thoughts?

A network s2 tuner from Silicondust would have been great...
