To choose an FTA receiver can be overwhelming but with information it becomes easier to make a good decision as to which receiver best suits you
for what you need.

Not only is there a variety of FTA receivers but there is a number of different prices and services that the receivers offer. The FTA receivers works by entering FTA keys that decode the signals and allow your TV to display thousands of channels. There is the basic receiver which introduces you to the wide world of TV for prices as low as $100.00. The next level of receivers run from $150-$250 and then the top of the line receivers used for high definition go for $400-$500. The more expensive the receiver the higher the quality the more features they come with.

Some of the new and advanced features that some higher quality receivers are equipped with are Electronic Program Guide (EPG), zoom into picture
programs and picture in picture set up. The receiver can also come with a built in Personal Video Recorder(PVR) and or dual tunes which means you can record a channelwhile watching another channel. There are other features such as S-video and a Blind SearchPower Scan that quickly locates all the channels being transmitted by satellite and last but not least the feature ON Screen Display(OSD) which allows you to move, delete and rename channels to make it easier to have the channels you want to watch quickly available.

To start your FTA system you will need a FTA receiver, a Satellite dish and a connection cord. The cord you are looking for is a satellite coaxal cable which are available at tons of different electronics stores. That’s it your ready to go. Thousands of channels and no rising monthly charges.

Occasionally FTA receiver will get «zapped». This basically means that your TV channels will go down and you will need to update your box in order to get your channels back up and get you watching your satellite TV again. The updates that you need to find are called autoroll bin files. Autoroll bin files are files which automatically renew your keys. Keys are a series of numbers which you enter manually into your receiver to get your channels back up and running. This can become a pain in the neck because you can be required to enter these FTA keys multiple times daily. This is why people download autoroll files.

When buying an FTA receiver you should research the particular brand and model that you are interested in. This is very important because some of the boxes on the market today are absolutely amazing. They are easy to use and easy to setup while some other brands can be rather difficult and down right annoying to get working. One of the biggest things to keep in mind while buying a receiver is the downtime. When the receivers are zapped, which one is the first one to release new FTA files. This is probably one of the most important things to consider because being down for a long time without TV can be very frustrating and aggrevating. Some receivers will release new FTA files within hours of being zapped where as other brands can take days and possibly weeks.

FTA satellite TV testing is a hobby for many people and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. If you know this is something you would be interested in please make sure you do your homework before purchasing anything because they can be a little pricey and you want to make sure you get the receiver and satellite setup that you desire.
