    Might sound a bit thick here, how do you loop through?

    What's transcoding? How does that work ? Is it like a sky go type thing? What can you view? How many devices?

    What did you get installed from suppliers vix or bh?

    Sorry for all questions I'm very interested

    The receiver comes supplied with a lead and I just added two adapters on each end so that the output can be connected to the input on Tuner slot 2.

    Yes i believe it only works on one device at a time and it does use one of your tuners when in use. Works on wi-fi and you can get it to work outside of your network but be careful as you'll need to secure it properly.

    I use Vix and no skins etc.

    Thanks very helpful, think I have decided now

    Last question, what adaptors go on end of cable, is just one feed in then? Sorry that might have been 2 questions

    Depends on how many tuners you go for, if it's just the dual tuner then it'll be one rf to coax male, and if it's two tuner cards then it'll be two male and one female.

    If it's two you'll need a splitter as well obviously.

    The Vu+ have a loop through feature which negates the need for a splitter

    Both great boxes but the Uno 4k and Ultimo 4k are the next generation. My personal preference is for an internal HD on boxes, just neat and tidy but if I were to upgrade it would be an Ultimo 4k. I just like the displays so i can see at a glance whats going on.

    The H2S can also do this if the transcoder is set up

    Set box up this afternoon and running a treat. Have set up from scratch and then added Sky Q skin. Only issues in set up for m having is I cannot find Kodi or Exodus, I'm sure I've seen these set up but cannot find them?
    Another issue is the picons, I have on LCD screen looking great but they will not appear on EPG?

    Thanks again guys for all the advice and help:)

    Can I ask, how many lines do you need for this box? I know 8 tuners is probably an over kill but have been looking at the Mutant HD51 4K but the VU+Uno 4K looks like its better value for money. Especially that most things we record tend to be on at similar times and overlap and I have to go looking for repeat showings to record in some cases.
