Hi all

I got my DVBlogic & TVButler yesterday, installed on my NAS Synology DS215j and I`m happy so far. I installed DVB Link Viewer IOS App on iPhone, the same for Windows and finally on iMac.

Just a short question:
how many user can watch live tv by DVB Link Viewer at the same time, only one user or do I need a second TVButler when my wife and me are watching at the same time with different devices?

Kind regards from Hamburg and thanks in advance for answers.

You may watch up to 8 channels at the same time, But if channels from the same transponder.
Otherwise you really need as many tuners as you want to start simultaneous streams/recordings.

Thanks for answering, I appreciate!

If I understand this correctly: two watch tv with two different devices at the same time I would need a second stick, is this right?

Be aware that some of the NAS usb ports are not so powerful, and it could be that tuner(s) may work incorrectly. if you have a powered USB HUB, better connect tuners via it.
