    Hello all.New member here. Installed c-band stuff in the early 80's up to the 4dtv stuff and got out.and have and old c band I was using for Nasa tv. can I still use an old fta receiver for nasa tv or do I need something newer. this is just going to be used for nasa tv in my radio/electronic shop so don't need a lot of features.

    Thanks for any info

    :welcome to SatelliteGuys NasaNut54 . :) Well if you really are nuts about NASA, you will want a new receiver. They have a 4K broadcast now as well as the other channels. What is popular here right now is the Edision OS MIO 4K. A Linux based receiver running versions of Enigma2 STB software. Highly configurable STB and a lot of fun.

    Loving my os mio I got from Brian at Titanium.
    First Enigma2 receiver was a Zgemma H7.AC. It just kinda' sits there since getting the Edision.

    The Edision OS Mio is great, and was my "holy grail" receiver I'd been looking for, for years. I don't at present have a 4k tv set, YET, this receiver can receive 4k sat transmissions (including NASA), and downconvert them to 1080p so I can watch them. It still looks extremely GOOD!

    I can highly recommend that receiver. It's not something a newbie should start with, but you appear to have enough experience to learn how to use it fairly quickly. You can buy one at titaniumsatellite.com

    If you enjoy the Nasa channels, the 4K feed on 127W is awesome with the Edision OS Mio on my 4K TV. The first channel I wanted to test out.
