What is Dual Tuner? and the difference between Dual Tuner and Single Tuner

Sep.12,2017   |   Ken

Every digital cable converter box features a digital tuner, a device that — as the name implies — actually tunes in the channel that the DVR is recording. The earliest DVRs had only one tuner, meaning that if a viewer were to record a program, they had to stay on that program; if the viewer changed the channel, the recording would cease. The invention of dual-tuner DVRs solved this problem.

What is Dual Tuner?

At one time, dual-tuner digital video recorders were at the cutting edge of DVR technology. Having a dual-tuner DVR meant you could record two shows at one time, record a show and watch it while it was recording. A dual-tuner DVR may be all you need to accommodate your viewing needs. They come with larger hard drives than the dual-tuner DVRs to accommodate the increased recording capability. 

Difference between Dual Tuner and Single Tuner

In essence, a single tuner is convenient, and it will tend to be much like the existing VCR; you’ll use it if you go out, of if two important things clash. Dual tuners open up a whole new range of possibilities – especially those that will allow you to record two shows at one time, or record a show and watch it while it was recording. 


Cable TV providers, satellite TV providers and private manufacturers, all offered dual-tuner digital video recorders at one time. Geniatech is now introduced to dual- tuner DVR capabilities in TV set-top boxes. DVRs made pausing, replaying and fast-forwarding during a show possible and popular. The current models of DVRs support all the dual-tuner DVR features along with other improvements.
