I have the same problem as Hanno, the FF card is too slow to handle the incoming data rates of some channels. If it is possible to disable the tuner I can install my skystar2 card again and when this works stable I will buy a Technotrend S2-3200. There are a few HDTV channels but I will use FF card as output device for SDTV and make some recordings for test on dvb-s2 HDTV channels.

I would like this feature added too.
