Test Report for Mediastar Multibox Ultra Plus

Mediastar Multibox Ultra Plus

Mediastar Brand Digital Satellite Receivers are enjoying the best technology available from the beginning and aggressively encouraging our Principle Partners to take a leading role in the Industry to support, introduce and collaborate on our Research and Development, which has enabled Mediastar to be ahead of Digital Technology. Multibox Ultra Plus is a new addition to the Mediastar receivers.The window display is situated on the middle of the receiver. You will also come across different buttons on the front panel. Rear panel greets us with LNB input with a corresponding loop-through output, TV Scart connectors, three RCAs outputting the Video and Stereo sound, Digital Audio output, 12 volt output, RS- 232 port for updating a new receiver software and a main power button.

The remote control will not disappoint you in any function. After the first power-up and the welcome screen, clear and understandable wizard will guide you through the installation process.

First the box wants to know which languages you would prefer for the onscreen menu, audio and subtitles. Second screen allows configuring the local time, as well as the video settings. The menu options were simple and intuitive - Installation, System Settings, User Preferences and Games.

The next step was to scan for channels and we did this by selecting 'Installation' from the menu and then 'Auto Scan' In total, the Mediastar took around a 5 minutes to search 1332 TV and 528 Radio channels. The searched channels can also be moved, renamed or deleted in the preferences menu. Mediastar Multibox Ultra Plus supports all DiSEqC versions from 1.0 and 1.2. It can easily become the heart of your multi-satellite reception system. SCPC reception is not a problem for this box. Channel search can be performed in Automatic or Manual mode, with possibility to select a network search, to leave out encrypted or FTA channels, or to keep all. You do not need to worry too much about filling channel memory: Mediastar limit is 5000 TV and Radio channels. The multipicture display in either 4, 9, 10, 13 or 16 screens.

After you select multi picture, the television screen will be divided into the selected number of boxes, with the current channel displayed and live in the top left hand corner, and still shots of other channels in subsequent boxes. Moving the cursor across will activate that box, allowing you to see easily what is playing on different TV channels.

The Mediastar Multibox Ultra Plus also allows you to store groups of favourite channels. You can then use your favourites list in conjunction with the multi-picture display, thus allowing you quickly see what the frequently watched channels are currently showing. When you select a channel, the Mediastar displays relevant channel data in a large blue box at the base of the screen.

This includes the channel name, current time, and symbols for Teletext, EPG, Parental Lock information and most importantly - a graph for signal strength. This is a useful function as you can tell at a glance if there is any problems with your signal. The length of time the information box appears onscreen can be set between 1 to 5 seconds in the preferences menu.
