Hi guys,i live in the US and i'd like to get hispasat,i'm located in the east coast,i'd like some info about which channels i can receive here and the hardware and software i need as the type of dish and ird with smart card,any help will be really appreciate it,thanks
Firstly even on the Eastern sea board ( in which area do you reside) the 30.0 orbital slot is low on the horizon. secondly the vast majority of the transponders and channels are directed to Europe and not the USA.
12.172H is directed to the USA along with 12172 V
Take a look at the channels with a footprint listed as America
Both the Europe and Spain listed transponder channels would require a very very large dish in the USA, and is not an easy option at all !
There are many other satellites that can be accessed from the USA however- what would you like to recieve?
You wont get anything from European satellites m8, as they are well below your horizon. Your only option would be to look through Lyngsat website and see if there is anything you can get on the USA based sats.
hey m8 u guys know more than me about hispasat,i live in the US and i get DTV,DISHNETWORK and BELL EXPRESSVU,but i was doing some research and take a look at this here,i live in INDIANAPOLIS and they have service there and azimuth,elevation to point the dish,check it out and let me know,thanks a lot

What you see there is the overall footprints for all the beams.You need to look at the individual footprints.The channels you are after are all on the European beam, and not the American beam so you wont be able to receive them.
ok m8 thanks for all your help,now here' this package that i'd like to get in US,is RTVE digital package from hispasat,here on this page they say that with a 20inch i can get the signal,etc please let me know the following:
receiver? access card? dish? programmer? etc
i know is encrypted in NAGRA so i have to extract the boxkeys and stuff like that,please help me put m8,thanks
I cant advise you what equipment to buy as i dont know anything about the US sat scene, or what type of equipment you use over there.Sorry i cant help you more, but maybe one of the mods on here can direct you to a US based forum.
k m8, i got a signal strengh from hispasat of 91%,here in USA,right now at this moment,but i have an echostar ird from dishnetwork and that's it,i know that the palco channels are in nagravision,can u tell me what kind of receiver,smartcard,programmer,jtag,etc i need at this point,thanks a lot
The channels that are transmitted from 30W (the Hispasat cluster of satellites) are listed here, together with information such as encryption type and the beam on which they are carried: http://www.lyngsat.com/hispa.shtml
Where only a provider/package is mentioned, click on its "DIG" icon to see the individual channels. For RTVE you then get this page: http://www.lyngsat.com/dig/rtve.shtml There you can see that those channels that are encrypted are encrypted in Nagravision.
All of those footprint maps indicate the strength of the signal in dbW at particular locations within the footprints. To get an idea of the typical dishsize needed for a particular signal strength, use this: http://www.mlesat.com/calculat.html
In order to decrypt Nagravision channels, you either need an official subscription (which is paired to a particular identifier, or boxkey, in the CAM or receiver) or else a pirate card. The easiest pirate solution is to use a suitably programmed Funcard (using the so-called 6-in-1 files) though I'm not sure offhand whether those files contain the keys of the particular provider you are interested in. Such a card can be used in combination with one of the various multi-encryption enabled CI CAMs (eg FreeCAM, Magic CAM, etc) or else with one of the receivers whose software can be patched to make its internal CAM act like freecam/etc. Such receivers are the Humax 5400, the Samsung 9500, and more. I have no ide whether they are available on the US market, but I do not believe that your standard US-market Echostar/dishnetwork box will suffice.
