Well according to the Tuner Status under Help || General - Tuner 1 is working (80% Strength, 100% quality). Tuner 2 also works when I am recording (thanks for that info Optimist). Tuner 3 however shows nothing but the EPG is defiantely working and there is content on CU and BO (whether its updating with new content I am not sure)

Correct on Port A and B. Port C is however capped and rather the HD PVR 4 T is connected to the Universal Port. Also this is not direct as the HD PVR 4 requires 4 cable inputs so it first goes into the ES as one cable for the LNB then splits into 4 cables to the HD PVR 4 although from previous posts I see that I can just use the 1 port on the HD PVR 4 direct from the Universal port on SLNB. I will remove the ES and doe this although with my current setup using the ES it is working though
