    Hi everyone
    I’ve just bought a new duo 4K and have a problem to configure the tuners to be able to record few programs and watch one. I have unicable and one standard cable coming from lnb (inverto I thing). Can someone help me with this. Thanks in advance Greg

    To configure a Unicable (SCR) LNB you must know, first of all, the frequencies of your LNB's "channels", because a SCR uses at least 4 and up to (usually) 32 independent channels to work, and each one may be assigned to one of the FBC virtual tuners of your STB (if you've got at least one of these FBC tuners, of course, like in your Ultimo4K. Notice that Ultimo 4K is also equipped with two tuners, one FBC and one normal...).

    So, let's say you've got a 4 channels SCR LNB, usually its frequencies are
    1210
    1420
    1680
    2040

    but it's much better to know the SCR model or, at least, its frequencies (because you can set your tuner for a "User defined" LNB and set whatever frequencies you like.

    That said, imagine you sat is 13E and your tuners are named, for instance:

    A
    C
    D
    E
    F
    ...

    where A is the "real" tuner and C, D, E (or more) are the FBC virtual ones. You'll need to set them as follows.

    Tuner A
    =======
    Configuration: advanced
    Satellite: 13E (or whatever you've got)
    LNB: LNB 1
    Type of LNB/device: SCR (Unicable/JESS)
    Manufacturer: (yours, for instance Inverto or Humax which is a standard)
    Model: (yours)
    Channel: User band 1 (usually 1210)
    Connected: NO (this is important)

    then, in case, DiSeqC mode, but let's assume you can't connect a SCR to a DiSeqC switch for now...) and the other parameters, too, should not be needed.


    Tuner C
    =======
    Configuration: FBC SCR (....)
    Satellite: as in Tuner A
    LNB: as in Tuner A
    Type of LNB/device: as in Tuner A
    Manufacturer: as in Tuner A
    Model: as in Tuner A
    Channel: User band 2 (usually 1420)
    Connected: YES (this is important)
    Connected to: Tuner A (or any else already configured as SCR)


    Tuner D
    =======
    (Everything like Tuner C)
    Channel: User band 3 (usually 1690)
    Connected: YES
    Connected: YES (to Tuner A or anyone else already configured as SCR)
    Connected to: Tuner A (or any else already configured as SCR)



    Tuner E
    =======
    (Everything like Tuner C)
    Channel: User band 4 (usually 2040)
    Connected: YES
    ....


    and so on: if you've got a SCR LNB with more than 4 channels, you'll use
    User band 5
    User band 6
    User band 7
    .......

    but always
    Connected: YES (to Tuner A or anyone else already configured as SCR)
    Connected to: Tuner A (or any else already configured as SCR).


    This is the basic system. If your SCR channels work at different frequencies you'll have them shown in your setup.

    @Alexwilmac you are the best.
    Thanks for the quick response. I was quite close with this settings (I think) but without your help I would never ever get this right.
    Hopefully this help other vuplus-community members
