mings so that – for example
– re-runs of already recorded
events are not picked up for
duplicate recordings by de-
fining certain time frames.
It is also possible to define
specific days of the week and
channels that should not be
considered for the Auto Tim-
er routines.
We haven’t mentioned en-
crypted and pay TV channels
so far, but obviously the Giga
Blue HD Quad Plus will be
happy to process those, too.
Two common interface slots
are available for all current-
ly available modules. If you
want to make use of the two
integrated smartcard read-
ers you need to activate the
receiver’s softcam mode. By
default, this box is shipped
without any softcam exten-
sions installed.
With all those smart fea-
tures and useful functions,
youmight think the Giga Blue
HD Quad Plus does not call
for any additional validation,
but there’s one more thing
that might be of interest to
you: Two different standby
modes are available to cater
for two rather different pref-
erences: If youwant your box
to wake up almost instantly
after pressing the ON button
this can easily be fulfilled, al-
beit with a higher power con-
sumption in standby mode
than with the so-called deep
standby. The latter hardly
draws any power at all from
the mains during standby,
but takes some 45 seconds to
fullywake up. Once again, the
choice is yours.
In summary, the entire test
team at TELE-audiovision
was overwhelmed with the
first quad tuner PVR from
Impex-Sat. The overall con-
cept turned out to be thought
through to the very last de-
tail, and the user experience
is just as remarkable. With
up to four individual tuners
in a single box you can never
blame your receiver again for
missing a great broadcast.
