Hi,

I am considering purchasing (importing) the Relook 400S satellite receiver for use in the UAE and was hoping that someone might be able to give me the heads up on this.

Specifically, I am planning to subscribe to Showtime Arabia (Nilesat), which as I understand it, is encrypted using Irdeto. What I would like to do is migrate the smartcard from the free issue receiver and if necessary purchase a CAM to install in the Relook box. I would then like to supplement the Nilesat dish with a separate dish aimed at Hotbird. I plan to include disceq switching units so that both tuner inputs can select either satellite or either polarity using dual / quad LNB’s.

My questions are:-
a) Does this sound feasible
:cool: Will card share features work for me to be able to watch and record
separate encrypted channels simultaneously.

I am already an experienced Linux user and this looks like a neat solution for me.

Many Thanks for any advice.

if you aren't intersted in card sharing
there is an offer from showtime
( they will give you a reciver called showbox, it's twin tuner and has HDD
you can watch one channel while recording another one with more great features)


i was considring this one ( i have showtime subscription) but my friend have didturk subscription and i want to watch these channles, also for him he wnat to watch showtime , so i have to buy a reciver which have this feature with the ability of recording and watching different channels.


if you have purchesd relook 400 i hope you let me now , i have some questions before purchsing a new one


now i am using dreambox and i am very happy with it( but it doesn't have twin tuner and HDD)
