Hey Matt/Rod or anybody else that knows ....
We have a media centre with 2 tuners .... wanting to get an additional 2 tuners for the big fella for his birthday.
re-reading what I just wrote, I may be referring to the wrong thing .... we want to be able to record up to 4 channels if we need to ... is 'tuners' the right thing I'm looking for? All i know is that we have 2 of whatever it is ... and we need another 2.
Can you point me in the direction of where I can go to get them/?

Tuners is what you need.
You will need to do a registry hack to enable the extra tuners to work.
The site you need is:
Give the guys there your machine spec's and they will advise on the best tuner for you..ie PCI / PCIe etc and the best brands etc.
There is a new PCIe card recently launched that has 4 DVBT tuners on it I think. You may want to look at that also.

I knew it was going to be too hard for me without letting John know about it!!
Is the registry hack thing going to effect anything else do you think??

Gav, I had a bit of a dummy spit about the cost of the media centre when John first bought it ... but now .... couldn't live without it!!!
Every home should have one!!!

Unfortunately the poor old fella' had his birthday 2 days after the wedding ... so it's a bit of an I.O.U.
He originally told me just to get them for christmas instead but then he decided that he was getting ripped off so he's told me to come good with the I.O.U.!!!!
So now I have to buy him an extender AND 2 new tuners.
when did it become all about him

Hi Marko The best thing to do is to have a look at your contract and see how the variation clause is worded. We use the NSW Fair trading contract and the way that is…
