I was looking at one of these at JB Hifi the other night. It had Sat1 and Sat2 inputs. What's the advantage of having two?

Yep, that's the one. what's the model or brand of the receiver? It's likely got a built in hard drive for MyFreeview Satellite

As above twin tuners give more options. Usually they are configured with a small cable that loops the tuner 1 output to tuner 2. Or you can allocate the 2nd tuner to a 2nd dish or lnbfs configured for other satellites.
