Test Report for STAR SAT SR-X 220 CI


STAR SAT recently introduced their new receiver named SR-220 CI. With this receiver, lovers of satellite channels can enjoy TV channels without any disturbance and interruption.

The front panel of the receiver is nicely shaped. It has four buttons. These buttons are used for changing the channel and adjusting the volume directly on the receiver. There are two CI slots on the right side for pay TV reception. These slots are hidden behind a flap. You may enjoy 6000 channels with the help of this receiver. The current channel number is shown by the display. The rear connector panel comes with all of the standard jacks. The two scart connectors and three RCA Jacks contains the video and audio. A fourth RCA Jack delivers the programmable 0/12 volt PC output. The digital audio output is missing here. The IF signal from the LNB is looped through so that a second analog receiver could at some point be connected. The serial interface is used to upload new receiver software.

At first look, the SR-X 220 CI appears to be a very normal family receiver. Communicating with this receiver should not be a problem. The available OSD languages are Spanish, English, Arabic, French, Polish, German, Russian, Czech, Greek, Turkish and Farsi. Additional languages can be added to this list for one’s satisfaction. One may adjust the menu transparency and menu timeout according to personal tastes.

Selecting the local oscillator frequency has no limits. C-band and Ku-band values are directly selectable, while S-band needs manually entrance of these values. DiSEqC 1.2/1.3 and USALS permit the use of this receiver with a motorized system. The receiver comes with the 84 preprogrammed satellites. The spectrum feature graphically displays the signal strength and quality of the entire satellite’s spectrum. It makes the antenna alignment a fun. If you are not able to see the graphics during the alignment, you could always fall back on the variable audio beep tones for help.

With the help of automatic channel scanning, you have the choice of scanning one satellite or multiple satellites. You can also search for all channels, for FTA channels or for networks. If you are going to scan all the channels, a simple push of the button can select between FTA and CAS. PAL and NTSC signals are automatically recognized and displayed. Both 4:3 and 16:9 picture formats are also available.

With the help of Edit menu, you can organize everything that has been found. Channels can be deleted, moved or given a new name. Readers will become happy to know that this receiver has PID entry capability. Popular channels can be moved into favourite lists, so that they can be recalled any time when needed. There are eight groups of favourites lists. A simple push of a button is needed for a desired channel. Programming information is provided by the EPG. It has quite a fast channel surfing. You may control all the function via remote control and this feature makes it important.

The arrow buttons on the remote control can be used to make one of the other images “live”. Picture freeze and a sleep timer are standard features. It can take a section of the image and enlarge it. If you have nothing to watch, the integrated video games will give you the best company. Unfortunately, SR-X 220 CI does not have Dolby Digital output and S-VHs. Easy to read display, solid digital receiver, 6000 channels, fast channel surfing and fast channel scanning makes this receiver an extraordinary.
