Yes, I'd noticed that. My TT works fine for most channels with both tuners 
except for one (SBS) which has less signal strength, both tuners fail on it - 
my single tuners don't.

Another dual tuner (Lifeview TV Walker) has similar problems.

All my tuners are feed off a powered splitter so I presume the problem with the 
dual tuners are they split the signal internally.

I'll give the alternative driver you posted a go.
