Default Single view to xtra view install

Hi there

I currently have a single view setup with a single lnb. And what to upgrade to be able to view 3 channels in 3 different rooms. Is this only possible with a SD and HD decoder combination, or could it be done with 2 HD's?

Welcome to the forums. Glad to hear that you want to go with XtraView.
As a start, I would suggest that you read the information on this page (including the full FAQs)

The only XtraView combo which will give you 3 independent viewing environments is the SD PVR and HD PVR.

You will the the minimum of a dual LNB installation for this installation.

Although DIY is an option, we recommend the use of an Accredited Installer for all XtraView installations.

Once you have read through that page, please come back with your queries as you'll need to decide from the various installation options available.

Thanks. And the SDPVR is only available second hand? What's a reasonable price to pay?

SD PVRs are available in the second hand markets (check online classifieds).
As these are second hand, we cannot provide guideline prices.
