Hi,

I while ago I purchased a satellite receiver but I got it isntalled only a couple of days ago. So far so good.

After watching a few channels and looking through the menu of the sat receiver I decided to get help from people that know what they are doing cause I haven't got a clue.

The SW version is $SPHA333SS170EC
Database version is 00600009
Boot version is 0011.1

After reading a little bit I have a few questios to ask:

What's the advantage of a new firmware? I know that I might get new menu options etc but how do I benefit from that?

I'm interested in channels in English an Spanish, I can watch about 4 channels in Spanish and only 2 in English - is there any way I could get anymore channels?

What else can be done to enhance the receiver?

Thanks in advance.

Salvador

New firmware comes in two varieties for some receivers official and unofficial. Official manufacturers software may be a quicker scan speed or a menu revision as you mentioned. Unofficial software know as a patch contains built in software which allow you to view encoded channels without a subscription so I believe.

Probably but you do not state what satellite you are pointing at

Search the forums using the search facility to learn if you stb is patchable and then use the links section to find a site that has the required software.

toppervte33h,

Thanks a lot for the information, it really helps to understand a bit more what I'm getting into.

The satellite I'm pointing to is Hotbird or something of a similar name.

Thanks again for the help.

Well, it doesn't look like the Arion AF-1700E is patchable:(

Is there anything else I can do to my sat box to see more channels?

Thanks in advance.

Hi toppervte33h,

Just to confirm I'm a newbie, I don't have a clue what a cam is :confused It definitely does not have a card.

The Arion af-1700e stb can be found here:
http://arion.co.kr/global/product/product_view.php?idx=19&l_code=2&m_code=6

A friend of mine says that you can enter codes through the remote control but I don't see any menu options that could use these codes.


Thanks


Salvador

Unfortunately I have enough language packs in my PC thanks so I'm afraid you will have to hope another Arion user can answer your question, or the 'friend' can explain what to do. My understanding is that a patch or a cam can be used and if you do not have either of those facilities then you will have to remain FTA or buy another receiver but I hope someone can prove me wrong!
