Hi,

I am new here. Can some one please help me, I am planning to get a Dish TV receiver and smart card. I have no idea about satellite receivers and its technicalities I am expecting members here to help me out.
I reside in dubai, and my building has common dishes on the roof for all the flats in my building. They don't allow us to keep seperate dish for each flat. I am currently using pehla via nilesat. I get free channels from Arab sat and NSS ku6 also..

I need clarification in the following before buying dish tv

Currently I am using a technosat IR 7000 plus receiver for getting all the above channels . Can I get dish tv using this receiver or do I need to bring a receiver from India?

Can I just connect the receiver directly to the lnb jock and receive the channels along with the free channels. Do i need to do some special settings in the receiver to get dish tv.

Thanks
moopan

You need a dish tv receiver to get them all, you cant view it on ur present receiver. Regarding getting from INDIA, Its critical to get till your place, why ? Check it in old threads regarding.

No Friend,

I get a good signal of 70% during 11 PM to 11 30 PM else it is 60 % all the time. I did a search of the channels during that time but no luck wiht the HBO, Cartoon network and other channels ......

I get 13 TP's
and 14 Networks , when I try to save the received Channels ie :104 . I get a warning that some of the TP's have still not received Channlels in full do you still want to continue or rescan , Rescan does not help so i save with the 104 Channels itself.

I noticed that some of the TP's do not have any channels listed in them .

This weekend at 11.00 PM i am planning to do a LNB move and check the signal strenght more and do a channel search and see that all the TP's have the channels listed in them and check if i get all the 127 Channels .

Kindly advise if you got any plan for me to follow .

Appreciate your followup In this regard

Thanks and Cheers

Vijay

12688 v 27500 (29/35)

when i do th splitter trick i gain one transponder but i lose one as well ( strange)
12638 v 13300 (40/50)
12534 v 40700 (47/55)
but i loose 12688 v 27500 (2/3)

when i tried to attach an in line amplifier I got no signal at all
Does any body know if this is due to disceq system istalled or something else

is there ant other way i can ampify the signal

when i use the same line with a diifent reciver (starsat) i get more than 60% signal for 5 dish tv transponders

uys please help

I am going to cairo. Can anyone tell which of the DTH services will work there? Tata Sky, BIG Tv or Dish TV??? I think coverage of BIG TV is more than tata sky.

I doubt any of the Indian services will be available in Cairo unless you have access to a very big dish indeed.

The MEASAT3 of BIG TV shows a comfortable coverage of the area. Infact almost entire africa. The satellite coverage over egypt says 36DBW EIRP in C band and dish size 145-180 cm.

NSS-6 for Dish TV says 50 DBW EIRP in Ku band and a dish size of 60 cm.

INSAT 4A of Tata Sky has no coverage.

INSAT 4B of SunDirect has 40 DBW EIRP in C band and a dish size of about 125 cm.

Now I understand that these are not the optimal signals that u may receive but with a bigger dish the same can be achieved.

I would request you to have a look at the satellite coverages especially that of MEASAT3 _http://www.lyngsat-maps.com/maps/mea3_global.html. I actually dont see any reason why one should not be able to receive the signals comfortably.
