In Topic:Still can't grasp the FBC and Unicable setup possibilities

11 juli 2018 - 18:16

@Erik,

 

Assuming a twin FBC scenario, can I feed both (2x8 tuners) with 1 cable in one of them, or do I need a 2-way splitter

 

Yes, but as you can see, the question was explicit about two FBC tuners.

 

Yes, I meant two FBC tuners.

Sorry for the misunderstandment, sometimes it's difficult with english not being your native language. And to help we have dual twin tuners and stuff like that hahah.

@Erik To clear things up:

 

If you have a Unicable setup, you need a splitter. If you have a legacy setup, you need two more cables for the second tuner. There is no internal loop-through between the two FBC cards.

 

I will need a simple splitter and two cables, one for each FBC tuner as @WanWizard said (Unicable II setup),

since there will be no way of looping tuners IJKLMNOP through A.

 

After out discussion and a lot of reading I understand how these technologies work.

I'm very tempted in pulling the plug on Ultimo4K + multiswitch with 32SCR. Going for the ultimate setup hahah.

Luckily I'm using fiber LNB and everything can be done without going to the roof.

 

Thanks a lot for your help guys! And I hope this read helps someone else in need. =)

Finally,

Assuming a twin FBC scenario, can I feed both (2x8 tuners) with 1 cable in one of them, or do I need a 2-way splitter with 1 cable going into each FBC?

 

Not sure if this is just a software thing, of if the second FBC also needs its own cable feed for 8 more SCR.

I tried to edit the previous post but was too late.

 

It seems I was mistaken, where this ( https://www.gionline...q-dscr-gtu&sm=4 ) supports 16 SCR per output and input in fiber which is perfect for my setup...

There wasn't too much info on their site, but deepwebz ( https://www.bauckhag...S-dSCR-GTU.html ) shown that it has 32 SCR total...

I've been reading for the entire afternoon about this topic.

I think I finally grasp the means of all this.

 

I wanted to upgrade from a Duo2 into an Ultimo4K not only because of the 4K for future proof, and also because I would be able to use more transponders.

 

At the moment I have my setup with a Fibre LNB, and at the other end a quad GTU which is basically the same as a quad LNB.

Through all the read I gave into the topic, I understand what is SCR, and it doesn't have SCR ( https://www.gionline...Quatro - 02.pdf ).

This would be the closest possible (https://www.gionline...nal version.pdf) however given it does only give 4 SCRs it's not an improvement over what I have given I'm not a Sky user and that I already have a "quad LNB" connected to the STB ...

 

I very much like this ( http://inverto.tv/mu...h-1-legacy-port ) however it doesn't look like it supports Quad LNB as input but only quattro.

Unfortunatelly I cannot find a multiswitch that accepts quad LNB input (I can find quattro through) and outputs Unicable support with 16+ SCRs which would be enough for the whole satellite :(

 

So I either keep the current setup as it is and use the FBC with standard quad LNB (4 transponders), or invest a few and will be able to use the full technology of FBC paired with Switch with many SCRs by changing the quad to quattro and adding a Unicable switch (16 tuners).

It confused me at first because of the "Full band" keyword. Given that my LNB actually sends the full band down the fibre, and then converts it to a quad output I though that it could be something related, and that each output of that quad GTU would be the same as that Unicable technology people have been talking about.

But it seems Full Band Capture is a synonym of any transponder to a maximum of 8 SCR, and not an actual full-band coming in any format.

What about the fibre solution from global invacom, does it work the same as those Unicable LNBs from inverto, since it sends all frequencies down a single fibre ?

No clue here.
 

Basically FBC tuners can use all quadrants from a single sat, is this right ?

No. In a regular setup they're just two normal tuners and six "leaf" tuners that enigma connects to one of them when required. In a SCR setup they're eight independent tuners.

 

 

Its in this SCR setup that I'm interested in.

These FBC tuners working in a SCR setup have to be paired with specific LNBs so that they can use the 8 separate tuners, right ?

I assume only the tuners in unicable.xml are supported and, besides these, the tuner will work as a regular setup?

 

 

I'm sorry for the questions but there's so much information around and nothing that one can actually read and understand the whole picture :(
