Zap times

Vu+ Duo (VIX2.0) 2.2 seconds
No flash of any channel, just a black screen, then the channel clears DM800 (original , nabilosat BH v12) 3.7 seconds
This actually cleared the desired channel in 1.9 seconds, then paused from 2.8 seconds untill 3.7, where it was then watchable

TM800 (DWiQ 3/7 v2) 2.6 seconds

This was with FastZap enabled, it flashed the last channel as a frozen picture from 1.7 seconds, untill the desired channel cleared at 2.6 seconds. With FastZap disabled, it took 3.2 seconds of plain black screen for the channel to clear. I used the same channels on each receiver for this test, switching from Sky Action HD to Sky Family HD, and back, and did this a total of 5 times (10 channel changes) and timed each one, on each receiver, to allow for things like ECM times etc, but each time was the same for each receiver
