    It has been tested by some but none are DISH folks. I guess I was expecting too much but I heard that the DIRT Team read and posted here. Either it is or either it isn't and either it can or either it cannot but here there are conflicting responses with no way of knowing which is correct.

    Well, you can call DISH 15 times tonight and get 30 different answers or you can believe what people have posted here.
    Are you claiming the answers here are false?

    If you want an official answer (or 30) from DISH you will need to contact DISH directly. The intent of our website is users helping users - and I believe that has been done in this thread.

    I was hoping to hear from the D.I.R.T folks but I have either come to the wrong place or they don't post here any longer. The posts here have said both yes and no but tend to lean toward yes. No documentation appears to exist that there are 2 tuners but it does appear to work that way only if the unit is setup with a hard drive, the DVR service activated and when using a standard home style antenna/LNB setup.

    The Wally will only really "enable" two tuner mode if its on a DPP (includes Trav'ler)/DPH antenna, or DPP44/DPH42 switch. Once you run the test installation (check switch), you'll notice tuner 1 and tuner 2 rows of satellites under switch status.

    The Wally will not enable two tuner mode if its on a Tailgater or any other similar automatic single LNB dome antenna. This includes if you're using the Wally on the secondary port of those types of antennas too. (no switch, single sat).

    Side note...: With two tuners running and a dual tuner OTA adapter plugged in, I have actually been able to record two satellite and two OTA channels at same time on the Wally.
