Another generic receiver. Have no idea how good it is.
This isn't good: Not support DTS Dolby Digital AC3 Auido Decoding.
For 20 bucks though, it is up to you. You will most likely get no support, so what you get is what you get.
Looks like it would be good to take out to the dish for tuning, unless it really crappy.....or it may be a great box minus AC3 audio decoding.

The demodulation spec indicates that it would receive most, if not all of the North American FTA channels, minus certain types of audio like KE4EST said.

"•Video output resolution:576i; 576P; 720P_50Hz; 1080i_50Hz; 1080P_50Hz"


The video output concerns me since its 50Hz. I'm not sure if all TVs support that? Or maybe it supports 60Hz too and they forgot to list it? Would be a gamble.

I know V8 is good and even owned one. But this says Symbol Rate 2 ~ 90MSPS that is what I was interested.

Never saw much over 32-35. You will not see anything that high in HD on DVB-S2, on this side of the pond. To me, no AC3 = no sale.

What you will miss are symbol rates below 2000, and there are quite a few here in the States. The claim of 90msps sounds a bit of a stretch and probably advertising hype and not factual.
