There's close to 1000 chaneels on all the Hotbirds, would you care to give someone a clue as to which you are referring to?

Ok lets talk about the Eurosport and TPS for example. I have seen some software to plugin with some software to make those channels open but are there instructions for that process to know exactly what to do. Such plugins come with out instructions.

Not sure that there's much you can do with the Echostar software wise.

Plugins are normally for Linux boxes and PC satellite cards.
