Test Report for Digital Telecom X 400

Digital Telecom X 400

One of the latest receivers from Digital Telecom is X 400. The receiver presented a very pleasant look. The stylish layout of this box will enhance any living room rack.

An easy to read display is located in the middle of the front panel and either shows the selected channel or the current time in stand by mode. Three buttons are present on the front panel and allow using the receiver without remote control. The rear panel is equipped with a TV scart connector, RCA jacks, serial interface RS-232 for uploading new receiver software and other necessary connections. The remote control will not disappoint you and have an easy access to all the commands. The user manual is available in English. It is clearly written and will answer all your questions.

Make sure that you have properly installed and connected the cables of the receiver well. If the receiver has factory status, there is no programme list, when power on. The Main Menu window will be displayed on the screen. The Main Menu consists of 5 major main menus. The pre-programmed channel list is not enough updated.

The Digital Telecom X 400 supports DiSEqC 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3, so that really every user should be able to connect their system to this box. This box has the facility to store 5000 TV and Radio channels. Various updated satellites from worldwide are also included in this box.

There are three ways to search channels. Single Satellite Search, Network Search and Multi Satellite Search. For a Single Satellite Search, press the button specified for it on remote control to select the satellite in circle. Or press the OK key to pop up the drop down list, then select the desired satellite in the list and press OK button to confirm. The user will have also to decide here to scan only FTA or all channels.

For a Network Search, select between No and Yes. This item turns grey when Auto Scan is selected. For the Multi Satellite Search window, you can search several satellites at the one time. Digital Telecom X 400 has very fast channel search. 1332 TV and 507 Radio channels were found in 4 minutes and 50 seconds. As soon as the search is completed, the receiver first save all the channels and then goes 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.

The searched channel can be added to one or more of the favourites lists. These come pre-programmed as Sport, Film, Music and Children but these names can be edited as required. The EPG is a little cluttered, but the quick navigation speed helps. A timer is included, so you can set the receiver to switch to a channel when the selected pro programme starts. The time can be taken from the satellite or set manually. A sleep timer and power on / off timers are also included.

Zapping is fun with the Digital Telecom X 400, as the time it takes to switch from one Channel to the next is around 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. One can also find the Teletext services. If there is no Teletext, system will inform "No Teletext Data". Press the exit key to exit.

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.
