It's a quad tuner device. 2 tuners exclusively for recording, 1 exclusively for viewing and the 4th used to push content including box office movies to the drive for instant playback rather than waiting.
abababab: A couple of quick questions about MySkyHD I wonder if anyone knows the answer to.
1. I have heard that the quality of HD over Satellite is considerably lower than Terestrial HD due to bandwidth constraints. Does anyone know how noticeable the difference will be between FreeviewHD and SkyHD and how this difference can be quantified?
2. Will there be any quality degradation when broadcast material is saved to the MySkyHD harddisk? I was wondering whether there might be some lossy compression involved to increase the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.
Which makes me think of 2 more questions.
3. How big will the MySkyHD disk?
4. How many hours of material can be saved on it?
