    Installing Cable tuner in DM7020

    I have been offered a DM7020S receiver for around ?150, and was wondering if anyone knows if the tuner can be replaced with a cable tuner. I have looked on many sites which mention that a cable tuner can be plugged in, but i have looked inside this DM7025S and it looks to me that the tuner is soldered to the main board.
    Any experts on this subject?

    Re: Installing Cable tuner in DM7020

    I was not looking to watch cable and satellite at the same time, but was asking if anyone knows if the satellite tuner can be replaced with a cable tuner. Like I said above most sites quote a pluggable tuner, but as this receiver is not mine yet and have only taken the lid off, it looks like the tuner is soldered in. I could be wrong though.

    Only the 7025 has plug and play tuners.

    Re: Installing Cable tuner in DM7020

    DVBseller.com (chinese clone selling site) sell tuners for the 7020 in cable version. I guess this now raises the question if they can be used in the clone 7020 boxes successfully?

    I will e-mail him and report back.
