    Does enabling fallback tuner affect previously scheduled recordings? Had a couple of failures this morning and that was the only thing I changed.

    The tuner is chosen on the fly. It is not pre-booked. So whatever the current settings are at the time of the recording will determine what tuner will be selected.

    By pure chance I found this post and luckly I cant get additional help.

    * In my case I've got two locations (home A and home B).
    * In Home A I've got a dish pointed to Intelsat 27,5 for BBC satback. 1Gb/1Gb internet connectivity and Vu+ Uno 4k.
    * In Home B, my goal is to receive BBC channels from Intelsat 27,5 using the Home A dish. This is due to the lack of space for installing a proper dish in Home B. In this case, I've got a Vu+ zero 4k.

    I know I can stream the content from Home A to Home B as if it was IPTV. This could be done using a VPN tunel connecting both homes or through internet. However, my point is to explore this options of "sharing a tuner" from Home A with Home B. I would like to know if this is a better off solution for my goal.

    Any opinion?
    Thanks in advance!

    the benefit of 27.5W is all the services are on the same transponder, so as long as you can work out the connection side (I am not a network guy) it should work.
    In client server mode you specify the server IP address, so you need to be able to handle that.

    What do you mean by "sharing a tuner"? All that happens is Box B sends an http request to stream from Box A. Box B has no knowledge of what resources are available on Box A, or which tuner will be used to receive. If no resource is available nothing will be streamed.
