There is an issue on german xtrend (et-view-support.com) forum.
 

It is not a real problem. Maybe a little bug which could easily be corrected:

 

et6000
DVB-S connected
DVB-T connected (USB)

 

Services available via DVB-T are configured as "alternatives".

 

Main menu - Setup - System - Customize
Alternative services tuner priority is:
DVB-S/-T/-C

 

But it seams like DVB-T has highets priority.
Switching channels always results in using DVB-T-USB (if service is available).

 

Anything that can be customized (setup)?
Or may be a little bug?

 

Regards Martin

Hi Dima,

 

thanks for your reply,

But I don't exactely see your point.

 

Example:

Service xyz available on DVB-S and DVB-C

 

Select service xyz,

add alternative:

1. xyz (DVB-S)

2. xyz (DVB-T)

 

Is there a more convenient way to do that for each service available on DVB-T?

 

Regards Martin

Why?
Everything works, it is a global setting.
In my opinion it is primarily for recording.

I believe this is the problem... it doesn't seem to work!  If the tuner priority is set to DVB-S/-T/-C then you would expect that the DVB-S version of the program would be the default.  The OP advises that instead, the DVB-T version seems to be the default.

 

So Dima73 says it works correctly... that is it uses DVB-S in preference to DVB-T?

 

So it works diferently for Dima73 vs Martin_B?

I am using alternatives (DVB-T + DVB-S/S2) with tuner priority set to DVB-T/S/C for a few years now.

When I switch to alternatives service, DVB-T is picked-up. The same for recordings. All my alternative files have a sequence: DVB-T service followed by DVB-S service. I put them that way to be on the safe side. Moreover, I had a DM8000 with 2xDVB-S2 + 2xDVB-T tuners (one of them USB). I could put alternative into PiP and switch to another alternatives (another frequency) and second DVB-T was used. It was on Openpli 3.0 for DM8000.

 

Now I switched to Openpli 4.0 on vu+duo2 and the following happened (tuner priority set to T/S/C too):

I switched to alternatives service and DVB-T tuner was  picked - ok. Then I put it into PiP and switched to another alternatives service on another frequency and DVB-S2 tuner was used. It was ok too as I forgot to set up my second DVB-T tuner.

 

But here comes an error:

 

1. Alternatives on DVB-T is in PiP, alternatives on DVB-S is 'full screen'.

2. I closed PiP and switched to another channel. Then switched back to 'full screen' alternative from 1. It was DVB-S again (wrong!) it should be DVB-T that time (DVB-T was not occupied any more).

3. After another few channel switches, 'full screen' alternative was back on DVB-T.

 

Can it be that tuner availability is not checked when 'previous in history' rc key is used?

 

Regards.

No, it is checked.
