Test Report for Star Track ST-IR 5000

Star Track ST-IR 5000

Digital satellite TV and digital satellite receivers have been around us for quite a long time. In recent years not only the number of satellites that serve TV station signals have increased dramatically, also the number of stations per satellite have gone up significantly. If you are looking for a listing of all satellites that are currently up there, we suggest you to favour for Star Track receivers.

The new box from Star Track is ST-IR 5000. The front panel has all the necessary buttons for controlling the box without remote control. The rear panel is equipped with a TV scart connector, RCA jacks, serial interface RS-232 for uploading a new receiver software, programmable 12 volt output. The manual supplied with the box is clearly written in English and will answer all your questions. The remote control will not disappoint you.

After connecting the receiver for the first time, it is necessary to select an appropriate language for communication. ST-IR 5000 has English, German, Portugues, Spanish, Turkish, Arabic and Russian languages for communication. It comes preprogrammed with 3200 TV and Radio channels. The ST-IR 5000 has updated satellite list from worldwide. ST-IR 5000 supports DiSEqC 1.0 and 1.2 protocol for various antenna systems.

Before setting the receiver for searching, it is necessary to select All or only FTA channels for searching. 1292 TV and 564 Radio channels were found in seven minutes. As soon as the scanning is completed, the receiver first saves the channels and then turns on the first channel found. The receiver switches automatically between PAL and NTSC signals. By pressing the OK button, the channel list will be displayed on your screen. It switches automatically between PAL and NTSC signals. The edit menu deserves special mention as it is a very effective tool: channels can be renamed, moved, deleted or sorted according to all kinds of parameters as well as protected with a PIN code to make sure your little ones don't watch anything that's not suitable for their age. Switching from one channel to another takes less than one second. During our tests we did not come across any problems regarding symbol rates starting at the rate of 2.45ms/sec. Very especially after excessive use is the fast channel switching. The receiver also offers zoom function.

Pressing the info button will display all important information about the onscreen channel. You can also make the digital receiver turn up and show your desired service at your desired time using timer function. Pressing the TEXT button will open a Teletext page. Select Teletext pages with the numeric buttons on the RCU.

You can protect your installed data and information by locking the menu. Channel lock allows you to lock the channel with the password in order to prevent from accessing of the channel by your children or some unauthorized person. You may transfer your favourite channels to one of the eight favourite lists. The Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) provides full information about the onscreen channel. Weak signals are not a problem for ST-IR 5000.

The ST-IR 5000 design coupled with reliable software and a wide range of functions is specially designed for keeping in mind the beginning users. Various video games are also provided not to let you bore during the long commercial breaks.
