Test Report for Kaon KVR – 1000 P

Kaon KVR – 1000 P

Dish Channels has always been and always will be a satellite communications magazine. We published in our April issue the Test Report of the latest product of Kaon and that was KSC-570. Now recently Kaon hit the global market with their latest product and that is KVR-1000P, a digital multimedia recorder, nicely equipped version to break into the basic receiver market.

The front panel is fitted with a set of buttons that allow receiver operation and programming directly on the unit. The current channel is shown on an easy to read display. Upto 8,000 TV and radio channels can be stored. The two slots for use with CA modules are hidden behind a flap. New software can be uploaded and upgraded through RS-232. There is also a modulator, so that the KVR-1000 P can be used with older TV sets. The two smart card reader hidden behind a flap are used for embedded CAS like Conax / CAS – 5, cryptworks and nagravision etc.

The Kaon KVR – 1000 P has two tuners. These two tuners are used for decoding and recording systems. Communicating with this box should not be a problem. The available languages for the menus, audio and subtitles are English, Spanish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, French, Turkish, Italian, Danish, Dutch and German. The scart’s video parameters can be selected. Unlike a satellite receiver, here you can go straight to a channel scan. It you know the channel you are looking for, it will be automatically scaned in just about few minutes. At this point you could sit back and enjoy the channels you have found if you wanted too. But perhaps some organization in the channel list is needed first. For this, there is a well made edit menu. Unwanted channels can be deleted and renamed. You may add your favourite channels in a separate list. There is no delay in switching from one channel to another. The KVR-1000P is SCPC and MCPC receivable from C/Ku band satellites.

The KVR-1000P also comes with a Build in teletext and subtitle function, so that these services can be displayed on a monitor or on an older TV set. The box comes with a 40GB hard drive. As an option, this multimedia recorder can be fitted with large hard drive (up to 120 GB). Operation of all the different hard drive functions is very similar to a VCR. These functions include fast forward, remind, quick search and the specially timer facility. The programme is still being recorded while you are watching and will simply end a few minutes later. The same features allow you to watch a previously recorded programme while recording another live programme. With the help of Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), you may come to know about the upcoming programmes as well as for on screen channel information. The parental control function will keep you kids away from adult channels.

The remote control looks hardly any different than its satellite receiver cousin. EPG, language selection, picture format and subtitle activation are all accessible with the simple push of a button. The network searching is also available with in the KVR-1000P. An automatic scan of one or more satellites only adds newly found channels for that satellite to the end of the list. A 20-event timer is also provided to help make sure you would not miss any of you favourite programme. It has also the S/PDiF for digital audio or Dolby AC – 3 bit stream out put with PIP (Picture in Picture) feature. It also serves to provide a means to link the KVR 1000P to a PC. And there is a good reason for this: with the help of the video link software on the included CD, it is possible to record video and audio content easily on the hard drive of the PC.

Kaon has shown that with the KVR-1000P, it is also possible to find quality and well thought out features. It easy graphic menu guides you confidently through all the programming steps in such a way that even beginners should have this box up and running only in few minutes.
