Avtex 164DRS twin LNB sat
Does anybody have more than one satellite tuned into their Avtex DRS tv.
As the title suggest we have an Avtex 164DRS tv that is about a year old, we also have the Oyster Vision1 which has been modified/upgraded to have two LNB's, the main LNB is set to seek to Astra1 and the second LNB is slightly offset to look at Astra2 this is supposed to get over the problems associated with tuning these old Vision1 systems with the changes that are happening on Astra2 the selection between the two LNB's is by a AorB switch. I say supposed to and in reality it does work OK but it seems to bring with it another problem associated with the Avtex tv and Satellite tuner, Hope you are still following this.
The problem that I have is that if I tune in all the Astra1 channels and then the Astra2 channels and sort these to the favourites 1 and 2 all can work OK for a day or two and then I will switch on the TV and find that the channel that I was last watching on Astra2 (usually BBC1) is no longer in the Favourites or main menu. I then have to go back and do a full re-tune and the channel will be there again. Avtex have looked at the TV and can find no problem but when it came back to us and I fitted it everything worked OK for quite a while now (longer than before) the one difference I have noticed is that when the TV came back from Avtex nothing was tuned in for the Astra1 channels and I have not tuned these yet as I dont need them in the UK. So back to the question at the top, does anybody else us their Avtex tv this way (I put it at the top as most people wont get this far in my opinion).
Thanks for reading
