The Digital Devices MAX SX8 is a tuner card with 8 HDTV tuners on a single card with PCIe connector. The high density of the design and the choice to select the operating mode as well as Unicable® and JESS® support and only 7 watts power consumption makes the card ideal and flexible for DVB-S/S2/S2X applications.

The card can be used with Windows 7, 8, 10 and Linux operating systems.

The operating modes are „Quad“ or „Unicable“.

Using the “Quad” mode the card can either be connected to an LNB or a 4x multi switch. It supports one satellite.

In Unicable mode it requires only one coax cable to support 8 tuners using Unicable ®. Using JESS ® it can be connected to up to 32 tuners with just one coax cable.

1) requires Unicable®/ SCR / CENELEC En50494 compliant LNB or multi switch 2) requires Jess®/ CENELEC En50607 compliant LNB or multiswitch



Octopus NET Rack


The Octopus NET Rack is module-based system getting to be equipped with DuoFlex S2, DuoFlex C/T and the Flex CI Common Interface in various combinations.
