I have recently purchased the above decoder and it seems to work well, except for one issue. When I use the EPG to set a timer to record a programme it seems to flick to that programme at the time of recording, then will not make some of the other channels unavailable ('service unavailable') for viewing at the same time.

Does anyone have a solution for this?

That is a single tuner model which means it can't lock on to two transmission points at the same time. Freeview on the Optus D1 satellite is spread across two transmission points and SBS is on another. So if you want to watch TV1 while recording from TV3 then you'll need a double tuner satellite receiver. The Ultraplus X-9200HD and the DishTV S7090PVR are your main options for two tuners in one receiver, short of a home theatre PC.
