Default Instructions in Portugese

Hello,

I am wondering if anyone can advise me?

I have a TV Cabo Box and dish complete with a viewing card I bought as a package from Portugal. The box is a TV Cabo Power box by Octaltv with a card slot.

If I set this up what can I recieve free or is a subscription required and which satellite if any could I recieve a signal from other that the Hipasat 30W with this box?

Thanks

Assuming it to be a standard satellite receiver box and dish, then you could get all sorts of FTA channels without involving the card slot.

You say you bought it in Portugal - is it in Portugal that you propose to install it?
If so, then for some English channels you could use Astra1 at 19E - if that is what you want (I use these in Spain, pending an upgrade to a large dish). The main channels are on Astra2D, which will probably need a larger dish in Portugal.

You can find some detail of channels and satellites on http://www.lyngsat.com

Thanks for that, I bought it whilst on a trip to Portugal as it was on offer in a supermarket, I intend to use it in the UK but was wondering about the card slot, would this be for TV Cabo use only, or could I get a card that would allow me to view Channel 4 and 5.

Now I know it will pick up the FTA ones, I wish I had bought more than one.

You can get C4 without a card now, but C5 isn't available FTA (free to air) at present - predicted to be later this year (possibly).

Card slot - no use for Sky and ITV(need a Sky box for that), but there might be others you can get (I just don't know this game).

It occurs to me that often the box setup allows choice of language for the menus (which includes any on-the-box help). You may also get the chance to decide which language you want to see channels for.

Thanks for the information, I think understand what I need to do now to get it up and running.

I will also scan for Channel 4 on my existing system.

Thanks again.
