    Hello,

    I would like to tell you everything about my problem and need advice from you guys.

    I need a TV Tuner for my Mac mini and I looked in internet i found a lot ( Slingbox 500, HDHomeRun EXTEND and AverMedia TV .. etc )

    I own EyeTV Sat Free, its working perfectly with me, but I want to play 2 channels in the same time and EyeTV Sat Free doesn't support that. I hook it up with Satellite cable and i contacted Elgato support they told me it doesn't support 2 channels in the same time.

    I want to know, which one can be playing 2 channels in the same time. I prefer an application for the device not a webpage.

    One more question, Is there any device that support a card slot for networks whom using their own receivers like ( beIN networks ), they are using own set top box to view their channels. Its difficult for me to buy another subscription and another box for my office.

    I really need advice for whom tried these kind of Tuners and I will be thankful

    Are you located in USA, Canada, Europe... makes a big difference?

    I use a couple HD HomeRuns for US OTA broadcasts. Each has two tuners so I can view/record four channels at a time. That may be irrelevant for your case, however.
