Galaxis MPEG

In one of the older issues of Telesatellite, you introduced the Galaxis
IRD500. Is this receiver a FTA-type and would it work with scpc?
T. Kourtis

No, this one is not FTA (free to air) and not able to accept scpc.
Galaxis offers for FTA the model FTA-1 and later in january the FTA-2
for scpc, running from 2 to 45 Msymb/sec. The FTA-1 stores up to 1000
channels (depending on the software-version) has a IF-loop, RS 232 and
aexpansion-port (with MPEG-decrypted data 8-bit takt, status signals and
PC-bus signals). Both types are currently running at the TSI-lab under
test-conditions and results will be published later in 98.
