Hi Smitha,
So far nobody posted any experience with Tata sky in Bahrain,though it is being recieved in Qatar with 80% signal(with humax Rcvr). For That also, we dont know whether Tata Sky Card can be used in humax without any Software/hardware modification to rcvr or some modification/upgrade is required. So all user are requested to share there experience on forum so that others can learn if it is worth to buy/bring Tatasky Rcvr to Bahrain. @ Smitha.. if you have access to humax rcvr and Insat dish please try to connect and insert your Tata sky card and see if you can rcv any thing. or if you are not familiar with thease things, I can help you. mail me on no email.

thx

Hai Marshal

Tata Sky only coming good in Oman. While in UAE still not so good. But coming.
Difficult in Qatar,Bahrain and Kuwait. Do not waste time on that.

Tata Sky card will work on their receiver only. Other receiver it will not work but you will check signals only there with Humax.

However if you try with Dish TV with good technician you will get all channels. Here LNB plays good role . Get some good LNB like Philips or Inverto 0.2 db. Try it you will get it nicely.

Hareesh,
Never heard any such report in Bahrain. A friend of mine brought DishTV Rcvr 3 months ago, without any problem. I dont know if any restrictions are implemented recently.

Hi,

First i tried lucky star quad output lnb .3db,as 3 of us are using same dish.As there was some problem with some channels,our technician changed it to premiumx quad lnb .3db.After the change,reception improved(I mean better than before).I strongly recommend premiumx .3db universal lnb.You can try other different lnbs also as they are cheaper,may be 1.5 or 2 b.d.One of my friend using Invocam lnb .3 db,its expensive(single output ,he got it for 16 B.D!!) and its not better than my premiumx lnb.

Anybody using newly introduced dish tv VGA box?

Dear Suja
Invocam lnb is very good but for this u need seprat feed horn, premiumx is good LNB but not same to Invocam.
Keep in mind Primiumx model which i found in markeet is bascally for off-set dish, it will NOT give good result on primfocuse dish. try to find Sharp lnb IT IS GOOD & CHEEP THEN Invocam.
A good LNB must set properly, most tech dont have idea about prime focuse & offset dish diffrence.

Hi,
I thinkthe dish we r using in bahrain for nss6 IS off-set dish.So,premiumx 0.3db is best.

My Technician told me that Tata Sky is available in Bahrain and I am planning to bring the receiver after one month.
Presently I am using DishTv with Kaon Receiver But I am not satisfied with the Signal Quality for many important Channels like Star Cricket, NDTV Profit and so...

pardesi,
I am currently in India with my tatasky receiver with a view of just giving it away to someone who can use it..your reply has made me start to hope again..
I am returning to bahrain on saturday.. i had checked with a guy called prashanth who runs a cable network in manama, and he said dish tv will be received, but not tatasky..So i brought it to india with me thinking it is useless there..
Is there really any chance that tatasky signals will be received in bahrain? Then i will retain my receiver..
Can you provide me contact details of your technician who said signals are being received?
Or could you re-check with him whether he has tested the signals and how much further investment would be required?
I would really appreciate it.
Thank you.

Hi Smita,
When i Installed DishTV in My Flat the Technician told me that recently he found that the signals for tatasky is available in Bahrain. And Channels are Much Clear than DishTV but not All the Channels available, So i told him that i will change from DishTV to Tatasky. I just need to Tune my Existing Dish to Tatasky Satellite. No other expenses involved.

I dont have the contact number of him but his name Is Paresh and his shop is in Joofri Street near a Gujrathi Cafeteria where 4 roads meet.
