    ABC's and 123's of FTA testing - Kinda like the birds and the bee's

    First guys just rember.. FTA is considered testing.

    I have noticed a lot of posts lately regarding people complaining about the dish and sats going down. In b3v and d!sh defence they are going to ECM (electronic counter mesure) becasue they want you to pay. So for me and i tell all my cusomers this if the FTA reciever stays up for 2-3 monthes then the reciever has paied for itself. Legit Sub (rom card with a pay package) for the highest package costs 80-100 per month for canadain and then another 80-100 a month for the us programing. If you buy your reciever for 299, then in 3 mothes it has paied for itself (not includeing PPV) but you get my drift.

    If your the kind of person that HAS to have tv all the time i recomend haveing a backup reciever with a left package. FTA testing is just that and will only ever be testing with onlt one garentee.

    IT WILL GO DOWN a month here a month there but in time IT WILL GO DOWN.

    There is other FREE programing for your fta reciever btw. you are not just limited to waiting for the fixes. FTA was orginally designed to pick up free channgel in orbit. There is some good programing out there but not equilivent to b3v or d!sh but free, will not go down. I have set up customers with this kinda system useing a disq switch and 4 dishes.


    The moral of this story guys is that we know your reciever is down. Viewsat programers knows your reciever is down. Just look at it from there point of view, there programs are lasting 24 hours and it's just annoying everyone. They have to program 24 hrs a day just to keep up so until the ecm's calm down just sit back, relax, drink a beer. And for you tv-hollics please have a backup PAY reciever.

    I think the programmers are doing an outstanding job and I feel VERY fortunate to have them and their support through out the year and in the future.

    best regards to all who have helped FTA continue and flourish - including the awesome moderators who supply a wealth of knowledge all the time. God bless you guys!!

    I will say compared to other recievers viewsat has one of the best program support. Last year when there was a Umm, i think at was sub 14 command (i could be mistaken) all boxes were down for 3-4 monthes. Coolsay was up with a sub fix and then viewsat came out with the sub-less fix. NOTE- viewsat was the only one with a sub less fix. Then a month later both providers droped the command out of the streem due to pay sub problems. Overheating - and pay sub problems. This little hickup is just like the others.

    BTW - If anyone is intrested in setting up TRUE fta lemme know and i'll create a FAQ on it.

    I would also be very interested in trying fta, I have a couple of extra dishes and switches around, as long as they are up to the task.

    Re: Thanks FTA programers and PbP Mods

    FTA is that rare example of something great "for free" - like a sunset....

    all thanks to the efforts of a few really talented individuals. 2007 was a pretty good year for FTA so thanks FTA programmers and PbP Mods.

    Stay well, and here's hoping 2008 will be another great year for all of you and FTA
