If you click on the embedded link to the Echostar Europe Site, it seems they are indeed alive and kicking:

Lots of News Articles, lists of Receivers still supported ...... all sorts

Mind you, their UK office is near the old Mill town of Keighley and I don't recall seeing any enormous STB factories there, so it's probably little more than Offices and a Workshop.

It has moved to a new location

Actually, the UK premises are bigger than I imagined!

The whole operation seems to be very much a going concern.

Closer scrutiny of the main Web Site reveals a comprehensive Support function, with Firmware, Manuals etc for a wide range of Products, new and old.

thanks for your input!
i was thinking the european hq is no more,coz all the software support,of the digital receivers,also dont exists anymore?

i recogneized,that the chinese company "echolink",has cloned,the complete Logo and Layout of the digital receivers,looks exactly the same,like in the old days,only the motor controll connections,are missing on the backside...
