I have just upgraded from 3.2.2 to 4.1.1 as part of a Tuner upgrade.
I now have two BlackGold BGT3600 cards which each provide 2xS2 and 2xT2 tuners (Hence a total of 8 physical tuners). In my TVSource setup, most channels are made up of S2 sources only. There are a few channels which are only available on the terrestrial network, hence these channels consist of 4 T2 sources.
The standard 4 virtual tuners in Media Center is enough and no channel has more than 4 sources, but the T2 only channels are not showing up in MC. The Wiki refers to the 8 'Virtual' tuner build. Do I also need this version to support 8 Physical tuners as in this config?
When 4.5 is released I plan on adding another 2 cards to a dedicated Connect Server with the intention of feeding 8 Virtual Tuners, most of which will be configured with 8xS2 sources and a handful with 8xT2 tuners (hence only 8 sources for each channel). Will the 8 Virtual Tuner build support this, or will I need a '16 Tuner' build?
Other posters have noted that each Virtual Tuner in MC allocates a tuner buffer, so I do not really need a 16 Virtual Tuner Model, just one that maps 16 physical tuners to 8 logicals
Please can you clarify the versions I need and will need (if available!)?
