I’ve had this quad tuner about 3 days ago. it works well with my window 7 media center. – it is very easy to setup the card on pc. Running Win7 media center on an I7 home built HTPC, the card doesn’t seem particularly problematic with incoming signals.I was deeply impressed by the scan speed of this card, which only took three and a half minutes to scan all the satellites. Every search can be restricted to free-to-air channels only, which is particularly helpful.Now we\'ve had all 4 channels when the busy several times -Long awaited, and an excellent product!!

I have a requirement for recording 25 satellite channels 24/7 for one whole year. Purpose is monitoring view/review search based on time of day/thumb nails etc. I came across this product. Now I feel I can do it economically. My plan is to record RAW transport streams from 4 transponders to DVR for as long as it fill up the hard disk like 10days or so, then copy the data to an LTO-5 tape and start recording again. That way I am hoping I can hold the 25channels D1 resolution for one whole year. Will it work please comment?

Dear Muhammad Jamil,
lots of customers use 6984 for record TS data,but most of them use it under linux,because linux is more stable than windows.

Was this review helpful?

Dear Sinead,
Yes, TBS6984 is a quad tuner card, so you can watch 4 separate transponders at the same time. But it quites you have to have a quad LNB, or 4pcs singel LNB as well.

I built an HTPC a few years ago. At the time, the only option to get HDTV in Windows Media Center was use a TV card with single tuner. There is a rare of quad tuner card. I was one of the first people to receive this card. I must say, this is the best tv tuner card I have ever used, Without question, this card is awesome! The speed of scanning is fast and the signals are stablel. I am so pleased that this quad tuner records 4 shows at one time without any problems.

Awesome and perfect!Absolutely Five stars.

I\'m living in Switzerland and I am interestied to buy TBS 6984 card. I need it to watch swiss TV and Canalsat programs. Now, I have a standalone satellite receiver with 2 common interfaces and two PCMCIA card readers. With TBS 6984 is it possible to use two card readers (for TSR on Hotbird and Canalsat on Astra) and what model is the best for my goals ?

Hi Sir,

You are highly appreciated for asking about TBS6984 card. But, I am sorry that TBS6984 card is FTA receivers. It is without common interface. So, you can not use your PCMCIA card readers (I think what you mean is the CAM) with TBS6984 to watch TSR on Hotbird and Canalsate on Astra). However, if you know how to use phoenix cardreader or smargo card reader with TBS6984, you then can watch that encrypted channels without any problem. If you have any other question, please contact us by
