Advantage of 2xTV-Butler?

Post by jms » Fri May 22, 2020 8:07 pm

I have TV-Mosaic server running on my NAS with TVButler USB-Stick for watching DVB-C. Since it was annoying that I could not watch other channels while recording a TV program, I bought a second TVButler. But I cannot see any difference. While recording, I can watch other channels on the same frequency, but no other frequencies. What am I doing wrong?

Can you see the second tuner in the settings? If yes, do you have run the channel search also for the second tuner?

I have done the channel search for both tuners.

Have you tried the monitoring page to see the function of the tuners and the signal strength/quality?

Thank you for helping.
In the monitor, I see that one device is busy because I'm recording. But I cannot watch other channels on other cable frequencies. For some reasons the second TVButler is not used.

I found the problem: for Tuner 1 I did a scan for cable tv europe, for tuner 2 I did a scan for cable TV germany, so not the same scan type.
