Requirements... 1,2,4&7 are common to every STBs (except FTA) having 2 CI slot and may be any encrption embeded.
But its difficult to find 3(Blind Scan) STb in India. And Quality wise always European good are better which are made to work in weak signal too.

So my suggesion: Import from Europe the brands like Technomate,Manhattan,...

Something like a Technomate 1500 series receiver should fit the bill nicely on mosts counts.

Havent a clue how they would be on the international market for import into India though.

Well I am sorry but I take offence with this post, firstly the tone of the post is out of order
I think all people here would spend some time to answer my need
secondly only Asian posters could answer this as only Asian posters will know the requirements for that particular region. You can suggest many different STB's but how can anyone apart from someone from the region know what is available in that region. The O/P is not being up front as to what he wants to watch apart from everything and no STB on this planet will cover that.

Dear URPradhan
Blind Scan STBs are widely available in India every cheep
Chinees STB comes with Blind Scan but with out CAM, EPG and other
features. Beetels SD 96 is a good one with Blind Scan, EPG but with out
any CAM slot .

Hello Mehra,
The Technomate 1500 is fully patchable, with common interface for a cam and a card slot. I bought one when they came on the market and I am a very happy user.

I realise that when we translate a language the warmth and feel for the topic can become slightly muddled [my Spanish is debatable] but please ask again if you need further help. Thanks.

dear topper, first of all i could not understand what "wrong":-Nooo did u find with my post. secondly i have addressed this post to all in common. whether asians or europians. as far as requirement is concerned I have already told it pointwise, so no question arises that any one belonging to this region opnly is expected to answer it. actually i have kept all the options open like to purchase it locally or importing it from west. i m sure i m wrong nowhere.:p

Hi mehra,

I think we have a language difference here, when dealing with people from India I always find them very polite but the trouble starts when you put your "speech" into written English.

I have noticed this in a number of post's that when asking for something it comes across as an order or command which most English people would find annoying.

Not sure of the answer but both sides need to be open minded when dealing with such post's.:)

Let me just point out that the requirement for a patchable receiver probably wont help much in India at the moment, as far as I am aware theres not much open easily available in India at this time.

I say "easily available" as Im discounting things like TPS thats only available on huge dishes.

Certainly everything broadcasting direct to India are secure at the moment.

I have no idea if an official Dish India card would work in one of the multicam receivers simply as Ive not seen any reports on anyone doing it.

EDIT - let me also point out that the only reason I suggest the Technomate is because they are easily available in Europe and are very well regarded by the hobby fraterity as easy to use and have good unofficial patch support for the European pay sevices. You may well find that they arent suitable / suported for Asian services.

Now now lads - no sniping / flaming please - this is a friendly forum - lets keep it that way.

Misunderstandings are easy to make when writing stuff, lets draw a veil over the earlier posts. Any more sniping posts will be removed without warning,and if they continue the thread will be closed. Theres some useful stuff on here for our Indian friends and we dont want that.

END OF DISCUSSION of the earlier off topic posts or I'll just remove everything off topic - we are supposed to be discussing better receivers instead of the semi crippled boxes thats supplied for Dish and Tata in India.

Theres plenty of info about typical Dreambox features right here on the forum in the DB sub section.

Basically it a linux box built up as an advanced satellite receiver. Multi decrypt possibilities with various official subscriber cardsin over a dozen encryption types, and easy loading of keys where keys are known.

Please note they are high end enthusiasts receivers which take months to learn how to get the best out of.

The one I bought is the DM7020 which using the www.xe.com currency converter which at current uk price (about 350 ukp) works out at around 30,000 rupees at current exchange rates,although could probably be bought cheaper somewhere like Dubai or China :D

No idea what the Indian import prices would be
