Thanks for the info! Unfortunately my NU8000 doesn't seem to have dual LNB selection, in the broadcast menu settings. It has an LNB power on/off option. Think it's to disable the LNB, if you are using Freeview? Got to comment on how useless the Samsung guide and help line are! A really great TV in every other way. Don't want to switch to another brand. If one of the others has a Freesat tuner, when it's time to change. The lack of support may be a deciding factor.

Is it unreasonable to assume when there are twin LNB inputs, it should be possible to watch one channel and record another one simultaneously? Didn't work and got nowhere with the Samsung Help Line. Just sorry it doesn't do that! Still it recorded, sometimes? Either got all of the recording or part of it or nothing at all. Now it will only record if the TV is on and tuned to the channel being recorded. Over the few months since I bought it, recording has just got worse. Had set top boxes from Humax and Echostar, with twin tuners and never had a problem recording. With twin LNB inputs both vertical and horizontal polarisation are available simultaneously! Why on earth can't Samsung get their act together? For such a large tech company it is very odd they can not sort this issue. One good thing is because Samsung now acknowledge this as an ongoing fault all owners who have this and not happy you can ask you retailer for a refund due to faulty goods.
