All parameters of channels, satellites and color-systems you will find at
http://www.satcodx.com and in the recent issue of TELE-satellite
International. INTELSAT uses in Ku-band linear and in c-band circular
polarization, Hispasat: both systems, Orion: linear, PAS: linear. Brazilsat:
linear and Nahuel: linear.
In order to receive PAL and SECAM colors, you should use a multi-color TV
set. A wide LNB for Ku is fine, but your receiver should have a IF-range
from 900 to 2150 mc.
"Leicht" is not known to me. PowerVu and Irdeto are access-conditions for
digital systems. PowerVu is used by Scientific-Atlanta receivers and IRDETO
is a conditional access system, used in Europe, South Africa and the Far
East. B-MAC is an outdated transmission standard, not very much in use
today. Nagravision a analogue encryption, used in Europe and Digicipher 1 is
encryption-system used in the USA.
