View Full Version : 2 Tuner system keeps losing signal

I have had a single Hauppauge DVB PCI tuner in my backend/frontend for a couple of years. Everything worked fine with the tuner. A couple of weeks ago I added a USB tuner and they seem to fight over the signal. I don't know if that's the problem, but it seems to be an accurate description.
I will occasionally (sometimes frequently) lose the lock on a channel. Regardless of which tuner it was using, switching to the other one usually brings the channel in. Sometimes this happens when tuning to a new channel from another one.
Does anyone have any suggestions or insight about this?

How are they connected?
If they are just connected via a splitter,the signal will be divided between them, and will be poorer and less stable as a result.
You should really have a powered splitter/amplifier.

I did think of that. I went to the store and could only find amplifiers that said they were for antennas, not satellite, but I figured a signal was a signal and bought one. It didn't work. So, rather than order an amp or go to a specialty store, I figured I'd ask if there could be any software or component issues causing this.
I'll add another tick (after my original one) to the signal strength tally.

What do your logs say when the signal is lost (backend log specifically).

What do your logs say when the signal is lost (backend log specifically).

I think this may include a time I was having some problems.
Thanks for the help.

Sorry, did not realise it was a DVB-S card.
They have a 50V line carrier, and are a different frequency to Terrrestrial DVB.
You may still need an amp,satellite signals should be connected in series via paasthroughs, with a terminator at the end.

I guess I really can't be sure that I have the right DISEQC settings as I just picked "Universal Western Europe". I'm picking up the normal German stations on the Astra cluster and the dish isn't mine. It's on the rental house. I have no idea about its specifics.

Have you got it set right for BOTH tuners?

Both are set to "Universal (Europe)". However, I don't know anything about the LNB on the dish, so I hope it's the right setting.

I am inclined to believe this is due to signal strength, but I just can't confirm it because I can't get an amplifier to work.

I bought an amp that says it is specifically for satellite, plug it all in and get no signal lock at all. I've played with the adjustment screw—up and down—but nothing. While it was trying to tune in a channel, I started to unscrew the the cables and just hook everything up directly through the splitter and as soon as the connector touched the post of the splitter I got a signal lock.

Every time I plug an amplifier into the line it kills the signal completely. I just don't know what to do.

I understood that each tuner needed its own LNB and downlead.
