May 2007

Q.1 : Q: I am from Kuwait and I have a Humax F1-CV digital receiver with Viaccess smart card reader. My problem is that I want to receive the Show Time channels, and it needs Irdeto card reader, and I do not know what to do because I do not know if Irdeto work with my receiver and if it work, we do not have it here in Kuwait yet. (Lal Jan Baloch, Kuwait)

Ans: Your Humax got an embedded Viaccess-decoder and the suitable card-slot but no Common-Interface. This means you should change to the new HUMAX F1-VACI, which comes with embedded Viaccess (like you have now) and a 2-slot Common-Interface which works with Module (OCMCIA) for Irdeto, Conax, CryptoWorks, Nagravision and more. But be aware: Irdeto-PCMCIA are not available yet to the public! Another way to use Viaccess and Irdeto at the same time is the new MICONIK 1000S with Multi-Access Interface. Here you can use the old Irdeto Conditional Access Module, Viaccess and you got one Common Access Slot free for other services.

Q.2 : : I visit your website frequently. It is a great website. It provides a good knowledge base for satellite questions. My question deals with SCPC services. Is there a listing of what services are available on each satellite? I've never seen one published in any form, either in a magazine or publication dealing with satellite TV. (Mujeeb Rahu, Multan)

Ans: Usually you will need so many as possible handbooks of the different satellite-providers and the ITU-listings. Most stuff comes from own experience and from friendly sources. All this is partly packed into the pc (and never find it again!) and kept on thousands pieces of papers (taking 50% of my time to keep them more or more less in order). Real books on this are not available, but from to time we publish actual listings Dish Channels.

Q.3 : Can you please tell me how many channels I can receive, without subscribing to any packages on different satellites. Can I only receive free-to-air channels or can other channels be received (without D2Mac Decoder) and how much can I expect to pay for a complete system in Qatar? (Mohammad Ibrahim, Qatar)

Ans: Living in the same geographical area as you (Middle-Europe), one can receive this moment around 1300 programmes and fee-channels in C- and Ku-band between 80 degree East and 53 degree West (TV and Radio). All FTA! The costs of a system can vary between Qatar, depending on what you want. Just read the different tests in Dish Channels to get the picture.

Q.4 : : I have problems with the reception of the Racing UK channel on Eurobird, any idea what's wrong? (Azeem Samar, Karachi)

Ans: Racing UK recently moved to a different transponder on Eurobird. You can now find it at 11.224V, symbol rate 27500, FEC 2/3, encrypted in Videoguard

Q.5 : How we will get Indian channels at the moment in Indonesia. However, we just understood that we can get SUN TV Network through DTH beamed from NSS 703. We would like to know if there is any other network such as TATA Sky or Dish TV [for Indian channels such as ZEE, Sony, Star Plus, NDTV, Ten Sports etc that covers this part of the world, and if yes, what do we need to do to view them. (Patel Sharma, Indonesia]

Ans: None of the DTH platforms in India cover Indonesia. There are many regional satellites covering Indonesia like Asiasat 2/3S/4, Measat, Optus etc that carry many Indian channels. Most of these channels are 'Pay Channels' and received only through a set-top-box from the distributors of these channels. You may contact a particular channel office to get the contacts of their distributors in Indonesia.
