Digital Free To Air BLIND SEARCH Satellite Receiver

FORTEC STAR Lifetime ULTRA TM  

FORTEC STAR Lifetime ULTRA TM   New 2005 Model

  

Discontinued - See other

receivers

MPEG2 DVB Free To Air (FTA) receiver from Fortec Star.  Fast chipset, very sensitive tuner, easy menu, and the list goes on.  The best Korean made BLIND SEARCH receiver on the market today.  A blind search receiver can find every feed signal.  Super fast channel changing speed.  Crisp picture with the S-Video output.  Dolby Digital (AC3) S/PDIF audio coaxial output for your listening pleasure. Listen to AC3 broadcasts (Dolby Digital 5.1) when your Lifetime receiver is connected to a Dolby A/V amplifier (decoder).

What does BLIND SEARCH (aka SMART or POWER SCAN) mean?  It means that the receiver will do an automatic scan of the incoming satellite signal in small steps for active symbolrates to determine if there are any live transponder signals transmitting Free to air TV or radio channels.  In this special search feature, the receiver will not only identify the frequency but also the symbol rate, polarity, FEC, and PIDS.  It will then store these transponders and any FTA channels it finds in its memory.  Any encrypted channels it finds will not be displayed, instead you will see "BAD or ENCRYPTED SIGNAL".  These are not FTA and will require subscription.

The BLIND SEARCH feature comes in handy if a channel has relocated to a new transponder or if you have a motorized C and/or KU band dish and enjoy surfing the satellites for available FTA channels.

Watch and listen to the Free PBS stations on 

AMC3 satellite with this receiver.

Watch Free-to-air International & ethnic TV and Radio Channels  on Telstar 5 satellite, Galaxy 10R, AMC4, Galaxy 3C, and other satellites.  High quality and fast system! One of the fastest consumer receivers in the market today. Switches channels in a fraction of a second.
