Extra info: (couldn't edit my last post)
When a recording starts, the turning wheels kick in, and the VUDuo becomes unresponsive to the remote controle. It does still record the program from the timer, and I'm able to watch the channel that was active sometimes. Only a powercycle works to get the VUDuo working again.

Rassi: Thanx for the links.

Ofcause I did found those documents in the past, otherwise I couldn't watch anything on my VUDuo ;)
What I ment is: I can run the sundtek installer, that will fetch and install the latest drivers.
But I don't know how to install a specific driver manually (i.e. the driver atilaks mentioned)
I tried to read back the installation tutorial, but I have no idea what I'm doing with chmod 755 for instance.

What I tried:
cd /tmp
wget http://www.sundtek.d...21027.112338.sh
chmod 755 sundtek_installer_121027.112338.sh

But that clearly didn't work somehow, still had the latest installed driver (late november) And I don't want to irritate people here with my lack of knowledge of the command line, so I was hoping there was a course online for this.

My problem only occurs when both adapters become active, ie with a recording while watching another channel. I had Sundtek on Skype yesterday, and he blames my VUDuo. He advised only to use the latest drivers via sundtek_netinst.sh script. He also says there must be something wrong with my USB.

But I'm using an external powered USB hub, so it can't be the power, and one stick is working fine, so I guess it was a gentle way to send me off in the woods... :unsure:

I'm a novice user on the commandline. Sundtek told me that with /opt/bin/mediaclient --build I can see the build of the driver. Now I see that it's from november 28. So the last install didn't work out fine.
Where can I find the correct syntax to install the driver?
(And were can I find a tutorial for the command line?)

I had connected both adapters to different ports on the back. Sundtek support told me that the USB ports of the VUDuo didn't have not enough power to feed them both. So he suggested to place an active externally powered USB hub, and connect the adapters via the hub. But it didn't help...

I'll do that. Starting with the current build of a few days ago, and with the driver version you advise.

Edit: Yes, it works with one tuner. I only have problems when using the 2 tuners at the same time.
