Andy We meet a guy who just bought all the items he needed and then took his decoder from home and the card and adapted it to his van. Had no problems with the fact he wasn't at home. Maybe you could ask for a smaller unit in replacement of the bigger unit, at home with out giving them the true reason . Lorraine

Dave The Satcom product is not what the guy from Cronulla is importing - it is a respected US product that has been on the market for a couple of years. Andy

Andy,
Correct, nevertheless there are many reasons why it may not be suitable in
Australia.

I will say it again for the benefit of those wanting the facts. The Austar,
Foxtel and Aurora cards will work successfully in many decoder boxes other
than the ones supplied by the pay-tv providers.
Do not be intimidated or mislead by TravellersSatellite1 who obviously has a
vested interest in promoting his product.

TravellersSatellite1,

I have no beef with you, you are not an issue for me personally. Your
misinformation is of concern to me and should be to other Boggers.
My personal experience and the facts are:
The older Aurora and newer MYCRYPT Aurora cards work with IRDETO1 + 2
CI-CAMS in most decoders and certainly in all newer decoders which can
process IRDETO1 + 2 CI-CAMS. There is no guarantee that the older Aurora
cards will continue working for the next 5 years. If and when Aurora , who
have no relationship to Optus other than transmission rights from the C1,
change their channel-ids, then the older Aurora cards will cease operation.
This is why older pirate cards can still receive Aurora channels but no
longer Austar and Foxtel channels.

There is no guarantee that the older Aurora cards will continue working for
the next 5 years.

If the Austar card does not work in your decoder then I suspect that your
decoder is not capable of IRDETO2 decryption. Do you have evidence to the
contrary ?

Unlike you, I have no vested interest in this subject, however I will
continue to correct misinformation that you are stating which may adversely
affect a Bogger's decision when choosing a satellite tv receiving system.

David

Andy,
The new Austar decoder boxes are in fact quite small. IMO the Austar
software is quite user unfriendly. I don't even use my Austar box, instead
use 2 emTech boxes with excellent software each with 40 GB harddisks for
recording into which both the Austar and Aurora cards work just fine
simultaneously.

Dave et al I have been chasing around gathering info & have to say that pretty much everything you have posted has been confirmed by suppliers some of who carry the unit that TravellerSatellite1 is offering. Viz: Anywhere north of (about) Townsville 90cm is a minimum The eMtech200 will accept the Austar card - the locking software is in the Austar supplied recievers. The flat dish system have an operating frequency such that you can not use them with Austar or Foxtel. This firm offers a "Carapac" for $649 - Digital Receiver, Dish, LNB, Cable, satellite finder meter & inclinometer. Thanks for the warnings. Andy

Andy, could you please expand your last post? "This firm: Please identify the firm offers a "Carapac" for $649 - Digital Receiver: Which one? Dish: What size? LNB, Cable, satellite finder meter & inclinometer: Balance of details. This carapac, is it going to work all of the free to air stations all over Australia? How easy does it appear to be to install and tune? Thanks, tgintl/jay

Andy,
Seems like a reasonable offer if the quality of the decoder is good. You
will need all the items listed. I am interested to know the model of the
decoder and whether it comes with an external CI-CAM supporting IRDETO1+2?
