    X-FTA: Private Server?

    Hey guys.

    So like many I am trying to get my Viewsat Ultra to work again. It seems that the new thing is the X-FTA router. I can get one no problem but I am not entirely clear on what I need to use it.

    After reading the tutorial 'Viewsat and XFTA: how to...' a few times, the instructions do not seem too hard to figure out at all, but I have seen talk of private servers on a number of posts and forums. Do I need a subscription to a private server for the XFTA to work and for me to get my TV again? Or do I just make the XFTA work with my internet connection, plug it into my VS Ultra and bing-bang-boom, it works again? What is a private server for?

    It seems to me that there are no clear answers for all this XFTA business.

    Thanks!

    You need to purchase a private server sub. then they will give you the info to connect to their server.

    Oh ok. So it's not a one-shot deal like with the WF?
