    Yep, I expect it to be more than the single tuner model as well - just hoping there may have been a ballpark figure... :rolleyes:

    Cool! I rarely watch KU and do very little timed recording, so the one that I just got will work great for me. Thanks!

    Too many choices in the window. Right now I have KU sats on my Linkbox and C Band sats on my Amiko. I was selecting the wrong band about 50% of the time when I had both bands together.

    Huh? In OpenVix, it very clearly shows you which band in the menu.

    I see them fine. I was usually rushing and selected the wrong one a lot. Splitting them up made things MUCH easier for me.

    I had tested the U4 Quad and the reoccurring slow navigation in the GUI was frustrating. Combined with the sloth speed blind scan, I feel your pain. Didn't shed many tears to upgrade. LOL!

    The 64 bit processor in the Mio makes for an enjoyable experience. It is the first E2 STB that I have used that not only equaled, but surpassed appliance type STBs in operation and performance. But, if you are happy with your current STB, why upgrade? :)

    This is great news. :)
    Since the unneeded DVB-T2 tuner will be replaced by a second S2 tuner, maybe it won't be a big price difference. I would guess the production cost is similar.

    I'm not all that happy with my current receiver. I just like having dual tuners. If the price is reasonable I'll probably buy the dual DVB-S2 OS Mio when its available.

    How do you know it won't have two satellite tuners, AND a DVB-T2 tuner? After all, it's made for European use, and that's their market...

    I don't. Just an educated guess. (And maybe some wishful thinking thrown in too).

    Just received an update from Edision on the Mio+ model. It will add a 2nd fixed DVBS2 tuner and OELD display.

    Based on pricing of other brands, my guess is that adding these two features to the current hardware will increase the price by at least $75 to $100.
