Stacking Tuners

Post by Charlyc »

I have a setup where I have 2 tuners one on top of each other has anybody have had any issues with interference? Should they be apart from each other?
Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks

Hello,

I have a Scribe Duo and a Connect Quatro 4k. I have had them "side by side" and I have had them "Stacked". I have never experienced any issues, neither signal interference or degradation.
In years past I had three Primes, also stacked, with no issues.

I would avoid stacking not for interference reasons but rather heat dispersal reasons since heat rises and is a major cause of electronic device failure. The stacked units will almost certainly run hotter than unstacked.

I have a ATSC 3.0 4k installed now and the surface temperature on top 80 F & bottom 83 F so heat should not be a issue. My quarto never got over this temperatures also and I am waiting for my warranty replacement so I can stack and monitor their temp's. This will be a vertical stack on my utility panel (open).
