      The development of the Blind-Scan engine is made by CrazyCat. I think, Their have plan to add support for other compatible cards, like TeVii 470/660 .., Prof7500 (if Prof fix a issue in the driver) and possible others dvb cards.

    only for PUBLIC PROOF m8?

    • Cjcr
      #11 written by Cjcr 2 years ago

      No, I did not say that! I mean, I think your card (ssh2) will never be compatible with this program because it has no blind search hardware. If you want to do more things, better to buy another card!

    If I bought a TBS6925 card to work with this software, would the software let me view 422 feeds and how quick would an average blind scan be?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kev.

    • Cjcr
      #22 written by Cjcr 2 years ago

      yes, you can view 4:2:2 feeds. But I not known the average time of tbs6925 in blindscanning, but for Prof7301 is 15min avg (depend of the satellite and number of transponders).

  • Name (required)

      #24 written by rruunneerr 2 years ago

      What TBS6925 will not work with this software now?

      What TBS6921, is this good card for blindscanning?

      • Cjcr
        #25 written by Cjcr 2 years ago

        no, TBS6925 works fine with EBS and CrazyScan software. I say no have reports of the blindscan speed time.
