    You may be right about SCD since this features in response to a question...

    "Q: I've learned that the iCord Evolution has four tuners. But there are only two antenna inputs; how can this work?
    A: Even more independent recording and streaming possibilities result with a "" one-cable solution "" and four "" user bands "". Give us a call or contact us by e-mail. We would be pleased to provide you with further information on this topic! "

    From the link I posted

    Important note:
    Quad Tuning - This receiver is capable of quad tuner operation when used in conjunction the a SCD system. Under standard LNB conditions the unit operates as a twin tuner.
    DiSEqC - is availanble under DiSEqC 1.0 and 2.0 allowing simultaneous reception of up to four satellites via a DiSEqC switch. A large range of satellites are pre-stored with the facility for the user to add their own.

    looking at UNICABLE II. It would appear you can also use a QUATTRO LNB via a SCD Switch
    See http://www.inverto.tv/guide/?p=25.

    So far the silence is deafening

    Other than the original press release it's gone very quiet.

    ARRIS have been selected by Freesat as the partner for the new G3 set-top box. Could we be seeing the end of Humax involvement with the platform?

    It would have been better to have selected multiple partners, however I am glad the idea of a G3 unit is still alive and well.

    Does anyone know who Arris is/are? What are their credentials in producing this type of hardware/software i.e. better than or worse than Humax.

    Personally I will be sorry to lose the Humax brand. The other issue of course is there's still precious little UHD material so it could be a product ahead of its time.

    So, they acquired Pace, Sky's old set top box manufacturer. They used to make some decent kit, so there may still be hope of something good then.

    I wonder why they are dropping Humax? simply down to Arris coming up with a better financial proposition or some other as yet unknown reason
