MinitiounerPro

Postby VK5YYY » Mon Aug 14, 2017 1:03 pm

Hi Noel,
I note the French version MinitiounerPro has been listed for Pre-sale on REF website shop
https://boutique.r-e-f.org/kits-et-comp ... r-pro.html
Is this something BATC could cross pollinate with F6DZP, or maybe it's competition for the existing board, which you've already committed too
The first batch is due mid October
I guess it would come down to a financial decision based on demand and cross Channel cooperation
Cheers Roger

Hi

Yes, we are working with the MiniTiouner Pro team - in fact I have had emails with F1TE and F6DZP on the subject today.

We see the pro working alongside the standard "BATC" MiniTiouner which we will continue to sell and support as we believe it does everything the "average" ATV operator needs. The additional features in the pro include dual channel receive and DISECQ control, neither of which are needed for normal ATV operation.

Also due to the terrible £ to Euro exchange rate, the pro cost at 68.50 euros (£62) plus a tuner at £27.50 is significantly higher for UK members than buying the BATC parts at £56 plus a few additional components.

So it is business as normal for BATC with MinTiouner and we wish the MiniTiouner Pro team well :-)

Nice looking design. The price isn't bad given it has effectively two USB boards, though I think combining both streams only one USB would have been preferable. The existing MK2 tuner board has facilities to take out the second transport stream and a relatively simple daughter board could be designed for this if necessary. I have enough trouble finding one signal to receive, but EsHail Sat may change all that.

I would be interested to know if the TFT uses the available header signals as that would be a useful addition. I wonder if a PI might also do the tuning and display part to save needing a laptop.
