Digital Free To Air BLIND SEARCH

Satellite Receiver

FORTEC STAR Mercury II TM

Free To Air Satellite Receivers

Reviewed in Tele-Satellite International Magazine as one of the most reliable, feature-full and easy to operate FTA receivers on the market. The M-II is one of the few consumer receivers that will identify the frequency, symbol rate, polarity, FEC and even the PIDS for positive lock to any KU or C-Band satellite. With the “BLIND SEARCH” feature there is no need to manually go through the set up. Simply aim the dish and let the receiver download and save the channels for you! The features are excellent for motorized systems, one of the fastest receivers on the market. Some of the easy to use conveniences are: 1 button search, edit function. Channel memory back-up, component video output, Dolby Digital 5.1, picture in graphics up to 16 channels at once, data transfer and more.

Tele-Satellite Magazine Review

MERCURY II is a powerful satellite receiver ideal for satellite enthusiast. The receiver has an easy-to-use Menu, yet is feature-rich. MERCURY II comes with a comprehensive Power Scan for blind searching satellites. Users can back up their channel list before upgrading the software, and then restore the channel list, all from within the receiver’s own menu. The front panel has 8 buttons allowing complete control of the receiver’s functions without the use of the remote. The back panel has all the connection options you would need, with RCA composite jacks, component jacks (Y,Pb,Pr), and an S-video connection.

Watch Free-to-air International & ethnic TV and Radio Channels  on Intelsat America 5 (97W), Galaxy 10R (123W), AMC4 (101W), Galaxy 3C (95W), 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.

 

The Fortec Mercury II has a button on the remote control titled "edit". When you are on a channel and press that button you can then:

Features:

 

* 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 symbol rates 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.
