Sure it's a tuner failure, not cap?

No for months I've had trouble with 'tuner fail'  from standby. I would turn of at wall, leave, sometimes up to 30 mins and it would be o.k. I've flashed and rescanned channels. Eventually it got to the point of NO tuner B and very few channels on tuner A to total tuner fail. Today I did a factory reset. Then I had no optus d1... but remembered this box came from Germany and that initially I had to download from http://satellites-xml.eu/.  So did that today and popped in folder but after that on boot box just freezes on front wallpaper. I'm away for a week but when I get back I will flash again but I'm pretty sure it needs to go for the repair. Lnb is working fine on a spare single tuner set top box. Just want name of a repairer. I'm a little bit over technology at the moment. Too many things (expensive things) dying around here. laptops pcs smart phones and tablets all in 1 week!

Freezing on boot is a symptom of that capacitor failing - I'd suggest replacing it, and see if it resolves the problem.

Replacing a couple of caps is pretty straightforward so any electronic service place should be able to do this. Maybe a post in the wanted section for someone in your area who could do it for you?
