    Unicable2 FBC Tuner 2 physical wires - help!

    Hi All
    I just bought the Vu+ Ultimo 4k (from the sponsor). It has 1 dual FBC tuner and a dvb t2 tuner.
    I have a unicable2 lnb (also from sponsor)
    The cable is split with power pass splitter.

    As I have 2 cables from the lnb I understand I should attach them both to the physical connections.
    What is confusing me is that on the STB it says "Tuner A (FBC)" and it has 2 physical connections. The slot which says "Tuner B (FBC)" is empty.

    Are the 2 physical connections on "Tuner A (FBC) " actually Tuner A and B in the guides?
    What is the best way to configure the Tuners to maximise ability to record as many channels as possible? Thanks

    Your tuners A-H are using the tuner card in tuner slot A

    Yes they are.

    Thank you. I read that thread but it said 1 physical wire. I have 2 physical wires attached to the same slot.
    So does it make a difference having the second one attached?

    It does make a difference having two wires if using plugins like AutoBouquetsMaker and CrossEPG downloader.

    Did you read post 2 of that thread? Supplying both tuners with signal cable is better. This is what you have done. Please note, I said tuners, not tuner cards. If you had two tuner cards, you would have had four tuner inputs.
