BGT3600 Vs BGT3630


Standard Member

I'm not clued up on TV cards but have done a bit of research and decided on a BGT3600. My problem is that this model seems to be out of stock anywhere selling at a reasonable price (£170). I then noticed the BGT3630 which seems to do a similar job. The main difference seems to be the dual connection for DVB-S2 and DVB-T2.

Is this the only difference?

If so, does that only mean that I can't record a channel while watching another? this wouldn't bother me but I have one standard dish and also a 1.5m dish which I wouldn't mind converting to a digital LNB in the future so if it's possible to connect two dishes pointing at different satellites I would hold out for the BGT3600.

Thanks in advance

if you require 2 dishes then yes: BGT3600

Yes, one of the components for the BGT3600 is causing building issues at the factory. This has caused a gap in the production stream, and Tony @ BG is saying its going to be the end of the year before they arrive back into stock. He'd like it to be quicker but he's being realistic.
