Best S2 Tuner?

Postby spawnstah » Fri Nov 18, 2016 9:54 am

Hi all,
I've had my TBS 6984 (Quad S2) Tuner for at least 4 years and even though it's doing it's job I feel it might be time to replace it with something else.
And before just buying a random card, I figured I would ask the community or maybe Oberon himself?

Anyone who's got some recommendations for which cards are working very well with DVBLink and have got fast channel switching etc? I'm running a Windows server, so working drivers are of course important too, would like to avoid bluescreens and other issues.
Price range? I've really no idea. Looking at http://shop.tbsdtv.com/dvbs2-tv-tuner-pcie-c-2.html their Professional Quad card costs $350 USD so I guess a price range of $200-400 USD, with some wiggle room.

Thanks a lot!

I guess the most reliable are Digital Devises tuners.

Could be. As i know they have a good drivers for Linux but not so reliable for Windows.
