Sorry, one last point... we need to type these descriptions often, hence the much needed abbreviations and it needs to be easily recognisable as well.
Suggestions for future reference?

Here's another one that's been cropping up quite a bit recently. In this case I believe it's the whole technical side of the industry that do this.

"Universal"

Meaning 1 - Refers to any LNB that allows for both KU Lo and Hi band reception and the usage of that.
Example usage - on HD PVR's, the option to select "SATCR Universal".

Meaning 2 - Used to describe the original standard LNB feed's system - on each such cable, only incoming signals of either Vertical or Horizontal polarity are delivered at any given time.
Also called "Legacy", perhaps the better term to use.

SATCR LNB's (one variation of doing Unicable) allows for both polarities by transposing Horizontal frequencies onto unused Vertical frequencies.

Hi or Lo Band remains always being a feed choice on either system, it's never combined. (Unless anyone is using one of the most modern developments, such as what's now called a "Wideband" LNB.)

"Single-view" decoders.

All decoders are single-view except for the older DualView and SD PVR models, so identifying the 1110, 1131, 1132 and the 4136 HD Decoder (4U/4S/4S2) as "single-view" is confusing.
The other much older models, the 4 HD PVR models and the two Explora models are also single view.

EDIT: What is believed meant with this description is that those decoders can't view more than a live broadcast channel - no buffering, recording, CU or BO. Perhaps best to then call them something like "basic view".
