    best dvb-s,dvb-s2 satellite receiver?

    I realize this thread is a couple of years old, but am putting a bump here to see if anyone can make any further suggestions. I've been out of the loop on fta a few years, but am thinking about getting back in to it in the next year or two since we just got a new place to rent that has a perfect...

    Is pansat 3500 sd still ok to use?

    what about AZBOX? Read somewhere that it is only box that can do 4:2:2? Also, if these new boxes do hdmi, do you have to have a tv, or can you just plug them in to a computer monitor?

    Is pansat 3500 sd still ok to use?

    I haven't used my fta receiver in a few years since we went to using roku, but in the near future we are contemplating getting rid of dsl and a phone line to save a few bucks monthly as we are going to have a lot of new expenses we never had before long (Baby's due date is in July! :) ) Is it...

    Roku vs FTA Television

    Roku is awesome. Got mine last Sunday after we decided to get rid of cable. I had to get rid of my fta stuff for now because we ended up moving in to a small apartment that doesn't have a 'commons' area attached to it directly where I could put up the dish. I could theoretically put it on a...

    What anoying and crazy things happen with your FTA set-up?

    TP overload is always a pain on the pansat here. It really does wonky things like assign tp 99999 to things, not add channels when they are found in blind scan, etc. It's all a memory leak junk. The variance in tp signals is on 30w is probably because of L vs V or the fact that there's a...

    What s your primary receiver? Poll

    Pansat 3500 sd is currently main and only receiver. I used to have a dvb worldbox, but we left it in the attic where the computers used to be when we moved the computers to the main floor, and it was up there with no heating or cooling since there's no central air up there... it got fizzled out...

    Is ONN really gone, or just a weak signal that's very hard to get? It always was weak for me...

    Hunting eastern end of Arc

    most stuff between amazons and hispasat is hard to find for me unless the weather is just right. I have seen stuff on 45 degrees west before. 58 - forget it unless you have the right sort of lnb. The others, it's hit and miss. Of course, if your on a bud, I guess you probably might have...

    125 West

    Soundblaster Creative Extigy external sound module works, and I love it. Lots of various inputs and outputs for sounds. Makes it possible to do a lot of things, like not just having the input from the reciever to get dolby digital tv sound, but also hooking up a long audio stereo extension...

    Why are broadcasters so afraid of FTA?

    Lets see... Equity ran unencrypted, and was an FTA Godsend. Where are they - oh yes, they went bankrupt and are no longer on the air for the most part. Lets see... White Springs TV was unencrypted. Where is it - oh yes, they ran out of money to put stuff on satellite so now only broadcast...

    What is "Offset" or

    Uh, where are you located? Here in the Midwest, we can't get past 30 degrees west. Most of the US is that way unless you are on the coast maybe? Offset has to do with the way the lnb is twisted in it's holder. If you are using a motor, the moter itself does the offset sort of.

    The question is - now that they are not doing "tests" there, where are they doing them, if they are doing them at all? ;)
