So the suggested solution is
1. Get SLNB
2 Connection
Unicable A- Explora
Unicable B- Explora 2
Unicable C - Model 45 HD Decoder (not pvr)
Model 45 heartbeat cable to Main Explora
Correct the tuner settings

Or does Model 45 connect to universal port?

Is this correct or is the HB cable not required anymore wiht the SLNB?

First parts correct.

Now let's look at this;

It's not "model 45", it's a choice of either the series 4 (model 4136) or series 5 (4137) HD Decoder.
If the 4137 then the HB will work via the SLNB, but then you won't have RF distribution without adding extra equipment, which you need to understand something about technically. Not recommended.
If the 4136 then a diplexer is needed to do the HB this way.
In both cases then Unicable must be used (and needs a separate user band Index from the others in use).

With a Universal connection the 4136's HB can connect directly to the primary decoder (the 2A) instead on a separate cable.
With the 4137 - not easy, best to use Unicable if you do ever get this decoder.

The Explora 1 must either connect HB on a separate cable or also have a diplexer attached.


Any more will probably come from other Forumites, all the best with it :-)
