Multi Tuner IRD

Post by silky459 » Thu Apr 27, 2017 5:53 pm

Does anyone know of an IRD on the market that has multiple tuners. I am looking for 8 or 16 tuners in one box, or more if available.
I know that DVEO has their SatBlaster but it is very expensive at over $10K each.
I need to support up to 96 channels. I am open to buying a 4 tuner box if there is total cost savings.
The IRD needs to support DVB-S/S2, MPEG2/4, and output IP.
Thank you,
Ed

I would just setup a Linux server and install some dual or quad tuner TBS cards in the back. The DEVO for 10 grand in basically the same thing.
You can find old Dell servers for cheep that have more then enough power and resources on-board to make a nice and low cost multi channel satellite receive, encoder, HLS streamer.
