KE 220 Digital Satellite Receiver

Kaon Media is expert in manufacturing of world class digital satellite receivers. The world class expets of Kaon Media are playing a key role in establishing a digital convergence world and multimedia home platform to provide high quality home entertainment. The new KE 220 digital satellite receiver is top of all. It is blessed with digital technology that brings viewers top quality pictures and sound. Lets check what funs the box have inside.

The front panel of KE 220 is designed simply. There are total three buttons on the front panel used for power and channel up and down. There is also a flap on the right side for 2 CI slots in order to watch pay channels. The four digit display in the middle of the receiver shows the current channel number and time in a stand by mode. The rear panel is also designed simply. S/PDIF output for connection to a digital amplifier, RS-232 for uploading a new receiver software, RCA jacks, RF out and IF loop through. No scart connector was found on the rear panel. The remote control is well designed, large buttons having access to all function with out any trouble.

Before you can view the Television or Radio programme, you must perform the installation procedure first. Therefore you will see only Easy Installation Menu at first when you plug in your system. The Easy Installation gives you the convenience of selecting various languages, adjusting the time and channel search. The first option is the language selection. The available OSD languages are English, Spanish, German, French, Turkish, Russian, Arabic, Farsi and Dutch. Every user may select the language of his own choice. All the local oscillator frequencies for C and Ku-band are preprogrammed. The receiver supports DiSEqC 1.0, 1.2 and USALS protocol.

Once the initial setup has been completed, the fun can begin. Its time to find the channels that you would actually watch. Here are two options for channels searching. Automatic or manual search. 793 TV and 411 Radio channels were found in 7 minutes and 40 seconds. It is also possible to search for frequencies with specific symbolrates. These can be added once full mode has been selected. The scanned channels can be delete, rename, sort and moved to one of the eight favourite list for easier recall later time. If you want to rename the favourite channel, press the info( blue) button.

After the TV channels have been programmed, you will see the information box each time you change the channels. Every time you change channels, you will receive programme information for a few seconds. During Channel Banner is appearing, when you press the Green button, you can get easily Now Information Banner. KE 220 also supports the multi video function. Press the “0” button to get the multi video view when service is being received. Multiple channels will be displayed on your screen.

If the Auto Power is set to On and power is Off, the box turns on automatically and turns in to the channel mode, which you were watching before power breakdown. The receiver software has been designed with the editing of data in mind. In every menu, you have the ability to edit nearly everything: channels, satellites, favourites, frequencies or tanasponders. You can also add, modify or delete transponders. Another menu is available named User Preferences. When selected, the user can set the Timer, Local time, Time Zone, Changing pin code and Banner time.

Switching from one channel to another on the same transponder required about one second. This makes channel surfing quite a fun. There are also graphical symbols that show if the channel is free or encrypted. Picture of your favourite player may be brought closer with the help of Zoom function. Sensitivity is very good and the receiver copes very well with weak signals. Symbolrates starting at the rate of 2.45ms/sec were processed easily during our tests. Other functions include sleep and wake up timer, EPG, Calendar, Calculator and video games.

The KE 220 is fairly fast and simple box. Two CI slots gives plenty of opportunity to watch TV channels. Model: KE 220 Function: FTA Digital Set Top Box Channels Memory: Unlimited DiSEqC: 1.0, 1.2 USALS: Yes EPG: Yes Scart Connector: No Symbolrates: 2.45ms/sec SCPC: Yes C/Ku-band: Yes
