Hi all,

I just got into satellites and I'm already looking for my next receiver :)


I read some reviews for Technomate TM-1500CI+ and I'm very impressed, however, I'm somehow disapointed with the luck of people producing software for the receiver.

I own an ARION AF-1700EC, the receiver has its limitations but I found that there is plenty of software available out there, mostly thanks to all the clones.

If I had to buy a receiver at this moment in time I would go for a receiver that is easy to upgrade and the Technomate TM-1500CI might be an excellent unit but it would not be in my shopping list.

I'd like to know what other more experience people think about this issue.

Hi salvador, I'm somewhat puzzled with the above statement, can you please explain because I'm a little on the slow side.:confused

I have been using this software for the last five months and have been very happy with it.

Thanks
Rob

Rob,

What I meant was that it seems to me that only one company develops software for this stb. Everybody points me to alsat.co.uk but what can you do when this site is down or may even go altogether.

I'm still a newbie at this but I know that software for my stb is produced by several companies / people. There are Russian's, Polish's Turkish's Greek's, Korean's versions of the software and you can get hold of them in several places. All that is good news when it comes to upgrade your stb.

Perhaps, there are more versions of the software that I haven't found yet.

See what you mean now, and yes you are right. There is Turkish software available for the Technomate but as yet I have not heard of any more. I would think that their will soon be more s/w as these receivers are still fairly new, and people will start writing new s/w for them.
What confused me with your orginal post was that you said "I'm somehow disappointed with the LUCK (Lack) of people producing software............."
I assume you meant lack.:-doh! See how easy it is to confuse me.:D

@ vienna123, I think you will find that the software on Laurals and a few other sites is supplied by Alsat.

Thats what you put in on the entry page....
Password: alsat
pin:alsat

Took me while....but if you actually read the page behind it says put that in the box. Its to stop any machines hacking the site.

On a seperate issue. i cant find anything for the 1500 on the site. Am i looking in the wrong place?

Depends where you are looking.
If you look in the technomate section there is plenty of stuff on the 1500
