Thread: Clarification of DVB-S2 and HD
12-17-2012 11:44 PM #7
I started my FTA years in the early 90's here in Germany and have continued with it off and on since then. As a full time RVer for the past 8-9 years, FTA has been a challenge. I am now using my MotoSat steerable dish to lock onto a satellite and watch with my MicroHD. I canceled my Hughesnet satellite service and now use a MiFI for internet service, so the Motosat system can be used to scan any Ku sat. It is a lot slower to move from sat to sat but I can fine tune and peak any sat that it can see. Whenever I am stationary for a while, I set up a tripod with a second dish.

Media Markt is an amazing experience. Great thing about the German market is the availability of quality products.
In Europe, HD marketed STBs are S2, MPEG4 and h.264 capable. Don't expect much from functions such as blindscan and motor control since most receivers are connected to fixed dishes on one or two satellites for 24/7 channels.Satellite AV, LLC (Gold Sponsor)
