    receiver vs. demodulator

    Yup, I've made sure to get a very detailed description of the receiver since as you pointed out it'd be a waste of money to realize after the purchase that it won't demodulate the signal I bought it for in the first place (8psk in this case). The seller is looking for a board that has both LVDS...

    receiver vs. demodulator

    Hi ftarock and thank you for your input. I've been looking for one of those asi to lvds converters for a few months and have not been able to find one. I'll keep a search open on ebay and hopefully one will pop up soon. Rod's dvb-spi is down to $299 now, so it would be an awesome deal but...

    receiver vs. demodulator

    Excellent, got my tax return the other day so I need to spend it on something :p So like iceberg was saying you only need an IRD if you want to be able to watch the pic on your tv, whereas a demodulator can be combined with an ASI card and it will work fine via TSReader. Thanks again for...

    Dish size for DVB-S2?

    You will not be able to lock that tp with the skywalker as the skywalker only supports Turbo-coded 8psk. Sorry :( I forgot to say that as long as you have a 30-33" dish you should have no problem with that tp, however once again you need a receiver that can demodulate 8psk (some call it...

    receiver vs. demodulator

    Thank you for your quick reply. So if I were not to care about outputting it to my tv, but rather watching everything on my monitor I could just go with a demodulator with ASI out and this would allow me to record / watch the stream on my monitor? Thanks

    receiver vs. demodulator

    Hello, I'm a little confused so I was wondering if someone could shed some light as to what are the differences between a demodulator and a receiver. Looking at the specs of a demodulator vs. a receiver I cannot see any differences, both seem to have inputs/ ouputs, be able to process the...

    Problems with twinhan software

    Ever since I came across tsreader I could not go back to any application I've tried before. In my opinion it's an amazing piece of software: it scans extremely fast, it allows to record individual pids, a single program or a whole mux, uses very little cpu, works with numerous switches, and I...
