Videocon D2H - Installation and Tuning FTA Channels

After reading technical Review of Videocon d2h Review By, we are sharing a guide to watch FTA Channels on Videocon D2H. The TRAI regulations under which the DTH licenses requires that the STB be of open standards and should not be blocked and be allowed to view the services of any other operator or services of Doordarshan after the end of subscription period, Unless it is given under a rental scheme or the customer has moneys due to the operator. We know from experience that none of the other operators actually follow this rule and do everything possible to stop the customer from viewing anything by blocking the STB's. Let us see if D2H is any better in this regard.

D2H gives you proper bill for your STB on purchase, I was surprised to see the box actually working without inserting the card, It asks for the card only when it finds a scrambled channel. So decided to connect it to my DD-Direct+ dish and gave it a go. All i needed was to go to the Box settings-satellite management menu and add a satellite. It was pretty easy, Just click the Add satellite button and this screen comes up.

However you need to do some mathematics for adding c-band channels, The box has no auto-scan feature, also selecting the LBN type as c-band makes no difference. The box is not designed to scan the c-band IF range or it has some software bug, stopping it from scanning c-band TP's. So the old tried and tested method needs to be used. Let us say we want to add Luxe-tv from Asiasat-5, one of my favorite channels.

Well the frequencies to add is

TP - 4000
SR - 28125
FEC - 3/4

Adding these values after selecting the LNB type as c-band wont bring any signal, But do this if you want to add this channel

First subtract the TP frequency from 5150, I.E the lo frequency of c-band, you get

5150 -4000 = 1150

Now add this value to 9750, i.e., 9750 + 1150 = 10900

Now select LNB type as universal and add this value as TP frequency, Just that since the box fails to do high side injection for c-band and find IF values, we do it manually and tell it how to find the IF now, scan the TP, note that there is no need to change SR and FEC values, they are same.

Notice: If you are newbie in DTH boxes then it’s not advisable to do it without help of experts.

Dear warunasat, I would like to purchase an mpeg4 fta satellite receiver. The beetel mpeg4 satellite receiver purchased earlier is having some software problem. so it will not work well. If we can use viceocon receiver as fta receiver, it is better to purchase it because the price is less. Here i want to know whether any software is added by the videocon dth providers to block fta channels recentky please check the same and inform me.
