Free-to-air satellite receiver

Can't Post | Private Reply
After buying a new 4DTV digitial receiver for my satellite TV system, I discovered that I couldn't receive one of my favorite German programs: Deutsche Welle. So I bought a Fortec Star MPEG free-to-air receiver. Now I can watch Deutsche Welle, but would like to know what else I can receive with this equipment that I can't get with my 4DTV. Can someone recommend an online site with the information my technician would need for programming additional channels. By the way, my I ordered by Fortec I got an extra one by mistake, in case anyone's interested. Thanks in advance for any suggestions, Kim.

If you want some amazing TV from around the world and would like to also get unlimited access to Dish Network channels including PPV, then we highly recommend that you purchase the Fortec Star Lifetime Ultra. So many people want this product but the Internet is not educating people on what is best to purchase. If you type “free to air receivers” in a search engine you will see many people selling just that…. FTA: Free-To-Air Receivers.

The latest MPEG2 DVB Free To Air (FTA) receiver introduction from Fortec Star. Fast chipset, very sensitive tuner, easy menu, and the list goes on. The best BLIND SEARCH receivers on the market today. Super fast channel changing speed. Crisp picture with the S-Video output. Dolby Digital (AC3) S/PDIF audio coaxial output for your listening pleasure. Listen to AC3 broadcasts (Dolby Digital 5.1) when your Lifetime receiver is connected to a Dolby decoder.

Yep it was about a year ago that DW converted to Mpeg-2 technology. To learn more about the subject, try going to Mike Kohl's site and linking to the MPEG-2 SECTION . Er spricht kein Deutch

You will see that another good blind search receiver is the Pansat 2500a. I have one.

Don't buy such a receiver just to get The DISH Network signals for free. The DISH folks are upgrading their encryption technology to Nagravison 2. I'm told that once they do in the next 3 to 6 months that no one will be pirating signals from them anytime in the near future.

If you've got the time and can point your dish at different C band and Ku band satellites, you will have a lot of fun. As you will see from Mike's page, there are thousands of channels to choose from.
