Electronic Programme Guide For French, German and Uk Channels
As usual no one can agree on a common standard for EPG ( Electronic Programme Guide ) so if you buy a Fransat or TNT box and also have Uk or German channels tuned in, you won’t be able to see whats on! The same problem occurs with the FreeSat Uk system, because it is a licensed system, if you want the ‘Whats on Guide’, it will only work on the Uk channels, when you tune the French or German channels, you are then unable to access the full functionality of ANY of the Guides including Freesat.
For those wanting French Channels, the box is capable of receiving most of the FTA ( Free to Air ) channels, so a dish with multiple LNBs is required.
UK Channels – All available list of Uk channels incl. BBC and ITV
German Channels – All available free German Channels incl ARD and ZDF
French Channels – A good selection including the main ones TF1, M6, W9, France 2,3,5 and o BFM and Arte
By attaching a simple USB hard drive unit, recordings can be made from any of the channels tuned in. Setting the timer and channel for the recordings is dead simple, with the point and click recording setup page. You can of course manually extend times or enter all data manually if required.
Twin Tuner Version
If you plan on making a lot of recordings, there is a twin tuner receiver available with the same EPG capability, so you can record from one tuner, whilst watching another channel. The tuners operate completely independently so a German channel , say Das Erste on tuner 1, could be recorded, whilst watching East Enders on tuner 2.
I can supply a receiver, which downloads the EPG information from your network, totally automatically, once a day. You can program it to download only the languages you want, keeping download time to minimum and set the time of day you want it to download, avoiding having to do it manually.
There is an additional benefit, that once connected, the whole internet can be accessed! You Tube and many other services are pre programmed into this great receiver.
