Test Report for Nanoxx 9800 HD

 
Nanoxx 9800 HD

The front panel of 9800HD comes with six buttons used to operate the receiver in lieu of the remote control plus a seventh Standby button that is illuminated in blue while the receiver is in use. Of course the most important of these would be the two satellite IF inputs for DVB-S and DVB-S2 that also sport looped-through outputs. The 9800HD can be connected to a TV or projection conference calling system using the HDMI interface, the three RCA jacks for YUV, an S-Video jack, a CVBS jack as well as two Scart connectors.Exceptional audio is supplied by optical and coaxial S/PDIF outputs. The detailed, fully illustrated user manual printed in English and German will answer any questions you might have regarding the operation of this new Nanoxx receiver. The manufacturer gets a nice pat on the back for this effort. After the receiver has been connected to the satellite antenna system and the TV and it has been turned on for the first time, the Installation Assistant immediately appears. It is a very helpful tool when setting up the receiver for the first time. For the OSD (on-screen display) language,25 choices are available including English, German, Turkish, Russian, French, Arabic, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Danish, Dutch, Polish, Czech, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Greek, Serbian, Hungarian, Croatian, Albanian and Farsi. All in all, a very international receiver.

The Nanoxx concept sees to it that the satellites are set up and activated during the initial settings phase so that later on during a scan only those satellites that can actually be received will be available. The user simply checks off all of the satellites that his system is set up for. Each satellite has its own configuration menu in which numerous parameters can be set up. In addition to a variety of useable local oscillator frequency (LOF) values, there are also LNB settings available based on the SCR standard. Manual LOF entry lets you set up other LNB's such as those for the S-band. Natu-rally the Nanoxx 9800HD also supports all of the DiSEqC protocols: 1.0 for multifeed antennas up to four satellites, 1.1 for the expanded version for use with up to 16 LNBs, as well as 1.2 and 1.3 (USALS) for motor control and naturally also the SCR standard (Unicable). Before the installation assistant permits a channel scan to be started, the final set up step involves deciding how incoming signals should be routed to the two tuners. This could be separate cables with identical switches, separate cables with different types of switches or a loop through connection between Tuner 1 and Tuner 2. The receiver stores the selected options thus completing the initial installation. Before the owner of his newly purchased receiver actually gets down to using it, there are a few recommended additional settings that can be handled via the main menu. The installation menu will only be needed again when looking for new channels or when new satellites need to be added; everything else was already taken care of in the initial installation. Here you will also find a variety of other options that, for example, would allow you to reset the receiver to factory settings plus among other things load one of the preprogrammed channel lists.

The Nanoxx 9800HD comes with four different modes. The first is the automatic scan. In this mode the user only needs to select a desired satellite and choose between ALL, NIT, Fast, Free, TV or Radio. These choices can be set up individually for as many satellites as needed. Manual scan mode lets you search on one transponder. The well thought out and logical operational concept of the Nanoxx receiver can only be appreciated when you see it for yourself. For all you DXers out there we want to point out that of course a manual scan with PID entry is also possible. It is also possible to delete a group of channels with the push of one button plus you can transfer channel data, system settings and timer entries to an external medium so that this data can be worked on using an Editor program on a PC. A second push of the Info button displays detailed reception information on the current channel. The more channels that can be received, the more important it is to have a decent electronic programming guide (EPG) since in the end the user wants to maintain an overview and always be kept up to date on current programs. To that end, the Nanoxx comes with two different EPG modes: a single channel view and a multi-channel view in table format. Which of these is more useful will depend on the user; both functioned perfectly in our tests. PVR Nanoxx with its 9800HD has remained with their external hard drive concept and for good reason. Today's external hard drives are not nearly as expensive as they used to be, come with plenty of space and can be easily carried around from one place to another. The receiver can also remember where a playback was stopped so that it can continue from the point it was stopped the next time playback is started.
