Test Report for Opentel ODS3500CICW

Opentel ODS3500CICW

One may think always the same that any satellite receiver that comes along with a hard drive should also have two tuners as a standard feature. Because it has the ability to record one programme while watching another. With Opentech’s new ODS3500CICW, another receiver can be added to this list.

The front panel of this box looks like a typical receiver from OPENTECH. It is cryptoworks CAS Embedded and fully MPEG-2 and DVB compliant. Two CIA slots that can accept a variety of different CA modules for pay TV reception can be found behind a front panel flap. The two slots are for common interface for viaccess, conax, cryptoworks, nagravision, irdeto and SECA. Here you will also find the controls for channel selection and volume. Normally these buttons are used incase of when the remote control is out of order. Five buttons on the front panel are used for power on/off, channel up/down and volume up/down. The rear panel looks very attractive. There are two IF inputs, one for each tuner. The signal can also be looped through from the output of tuner A to the input of tuner B if desired. One may connect the tuner B output to an analogue receiver if needed. Two scart connectors link the ODS3500 CICW with a TV and VCR. If the scart is not recognized, video and analogue outputs can also be found on a set of three RCA jacks.

The PLL RF modulator accepts all known PAL norms. PAL or NTSC signals are automatically recognized and handled accordingly. The serial interface can only be used to upload new receiver software and to update the transponder data. It has a room for maximum 4000 channels of TV and Radio programmable manual entry of all this data could take some time.

The ODS 3500 CI CW can communicate in English, German, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Arabic, Persian and Turkish. All possible antenna configuration can be handled since OPENTECH thought fully included Mini-DiSEqC, DiSEqC1.0 and DiSEqC motor.

There are no limits when selecting local oscillator frequencies (LoF). It means that S-band and C-band reception is also possible. In addition to the automatic scan, manual scan is also possible. Before starting the scan, you must choose the search whether it is for FTA, Encoded or All channels. SCPC signals with their low symbol rates 1.45 Ms/sec, were recognized and processed without any difficulties. It has a fast channel switching. Switching from one channel to another on the same transponder required 1 second. Each tuner has its own favourite list in which one can store his favourite channels for easy recall any time. Unwanted channels can be deleted while those channels unsuitable for kids can be locked out with the help of parental lock function. Channels can also be renamed or rearranged into a better order. It has the automatic detection of forward error connection.

ODS 3500 CI CW is very easy to use. On the remote control the buttons for play, record, pause, fast forward and rewind are clearly marked and thought fully laid out. It has the ability to mark programmes for recording in the electronic programme guide (EPG). It provides detailed information about the upcoming programmes in advance. It also starts the recording definitely at the right time. If you are disturbed, then all you need is to push a special button and the receiver automatically starts recording that programme. No information is lost in such a process. The ODS 3500 CI CW comes with an excellent assortment of features and it is easy to install and operate. Software upgrades can be downloaded either from the internet ( or via satellite.
