Thanks. We've been told that the UBs chosen won't make a difference (except to only share tuner 3 when one has to, such as with 3 decoders) and it has seemed that way so far, but will definitely suggest giving this advice a try before the dreaded re-format if it seems that is needed by someone again.
Hopefully just getting the software version right on the troublesome box is enough to resolve now.

Anyway, it looks like the problem is starting to disappear as there's a lot less enquiries about it now.

It does show a date/time-stamp but how does one know it's the latest catalog version?

Yes that is the best way to combine 3 RF outs signals and provide power to the combiner. then one would need a normal single input SLX for says 4 viewing points? getting complicated and messy.

yes! agree.

But then there are other TRIAX products which I suppose one should look at on their website that may make this process easier.

Got home yesterday and box office showed 2 movies (3 movies by the evening) and catch up had additional content.

I'm thinking it did a software update overnight, as nothing else was changed.
