Hi all,

I've just got into this satellite hobby, and I've reading this forum for a bit. It's excellent! Lots of answers. :)

One thing I can't understand though. There's a lot of talk about the MR being able to decrypt a lot of channels without a smart card (assuming you have the right keys loaded in it). Is there a list some where with the channels it can do without a card? Currently I'm only interested in 19.2E, and 13E because those are the only 2 satellites I can get (got a 90cm dish with a monoblock LN:cool:.

Thanks in advance for any help! :cool:

the MR 1.081 will get you the TPS package , the ABSAT package , the POLSAT package , and MULTIVISION too on hotbird 13 .
it used to get Taquilla 1-10 on astra19.5 but that has stopped about a month ago till someone cracks it.


regards Barry:)

Hi,
U can have some french & duch channels as well on Astra1 (19,2ºE).Duch channels are interesting 'couse all foreign programs & movies on 'em (mainly english) are in original language with duch subtitles!
Have a good day!

Hi, I have just done two new things: Firstly, I have moved to Italy. Secondly I have bought my first satellite system. An Italian friend went with me to the local shop where I bought a TELESystem TS4.4C reciever. Unfortunately, the shop was out of stock of dishes. My friend said, "No problem we have a spare one at home". Fantastic, off we went, retreived said dish, installed the lot. We found the Astra cluster at 19.2° very easily and I commenced upon the task of familiarisation. It didn'y take me long to realise that Hotbird at 13° was not far away and so, since the reciever was pre-programmed for the Hotbird channels, I selected BBC World, worked out roughly how far to move the dish and hey presto I found it in about a minute. Fantastic thought I: hmm, perhaps no quite so fantastic. Using the receiver signal and quality strength meters (the dish is on the wall easily reachable from the balcony) I adjusted the direction and LNB skew for max (interestingly the skew didn't appear to make that much difference), with the best result for BBC World being 94% Strength and 50% Quality. And so to the problem; whilst the image quality for BBC World is fine, perfectly watchable, the reciever can only find about 4 Hotbird transponders. It can't find any of the RAI channels or indeed anything other than Arabsat and one other, of which I have forgotten the name at the moment. What gives guys? Baring in mind that Astra is coming in beautifully, from what I have read, Hotbird should be booming in; I just can't understand it. Granted the LNB is perhaps old but surely if it picks up Astra at 98% Strength and 88% Quality it must be working OK. I just can't understand it. Please help me retain my sanity! Regards, Clivez

Quality for the Horbird should not be less than 80%.
You have to realign the elevation and to check the fixtures again.
LNB is ok since you have Astra in perfect condition.

Clivez, how big is your dish? I get all the Rai channels on Hotbird with a 90cm in East Anglia.
