Installed the SLNB. Changed the Tuner settings and the error is gone. Do I still need the heartbeat cable between the expl 1 and 2 or will the SLNB be sufficient?

You would need to insert a diplexer behind the Explora 1 for that HB (Heartbeat) option to work. The 2A model has a built in diplexer.

If in the same room, easy enough to cable link. Just make sure that the RF port used is also so selected in the menus of both Exploras.

And here's the signal values guide (now updated) to check your SLNB installation was done ok;

You need to check both polarities, so use both of these channels for testing tuner 1 (and 2);
