we tested a pre-production model of the Lemon and the first model from
the production-line did not arrive yet here. The tested version was been
a true Free to Air (FTA)-receiver. Without any CAM. This means not
suitable to receive pay-tv. The unit could cope with all available
satellite-types (c- and ku-band) and broadcasts in MPEG-II (DVB) and
partly in PowerVu (again only FTA!).
Analogue reception-standard in Europe is compatible with the standards
in Africa. So problems can occur here.
