Hey guys anyone heard of BlackBird Stealth 2000 FTA receiver. I know someone who is selling it for cheap and I want to buy it but first want to make sure if it can get G25? Couldnt find anything on it on google. THanks
The Blackbird was used for hacking but hasn't worked for that for a long time. It should work for FTA but how well I don't know. If it is really cheap get it other wise get a coolsat4000/5000/6000. Those coolsat models are going on ebay for 20-40 dollars now and will work.
If it doesn't have a blind scan it should have some kind of autoscan that will scan the channels that are on transponders that are stored into the recievers memory. These may possibly be out of date and may need to be edited. Worst case would be if it has neither option, then every channel would need to be entered manually.
The Coolsat family will blind scan and find all the transponders, and the channels on them.
I would not waste my time with some old relic without knowing much more about it.
Nor my money.
What is your time worth?
Up to you.
edit: I just looked on eBay.
Found several possible 5000's and 6000's
Gotta watch the shipping charges, of course.
Several members here have recently reported getting 5000's or 6000's for $35, delivered !
I also saw one Mercury II for a good price, and it'd be an excellent choice, too.
Wasn't impressed with the Pansat nor Traxis prices (two other possibilities with blind scan).
