Last week there was a huge flame in Europe - DF-1 was about to send out a
software upgrade for Nokia d-box. New software has version number of 2.1.
The flame started from announcement in sat-digital saying that version 2.1
will kill
reception of all digital channels besides DF-1. Also, it was expected that
key sequence for accessing red menue will change. 
Finally, the announced day came, and 2.1 version went to all d-box users
having their dish pointed to 19 deg.east. In reality, the new version
didn't turn out to be so bad, also DF-1 officially declared that it will
not "kill" free channels.At first I kept my dish off Astra to keep "the
best" version - 2.0. But
after recieving the English translation of DF-1 letter, I decided to take a
risk, but now I think - I shouldn't have done this, after having lost MTV
Germany and MTV Europe from Viacom package. At first new version didn't
look very bad, all clear channels were still easy to recieve. But the
trouble started when I decided  to watch one of my favorite shows - Beavis
and Butt-head. I turned my dish to 13
deg.east, tuned to Viacom's package (selected Bloomberg channel), entered
red menue and put in Video and Audio PID's, but the screen remained black.
I followed the
instructions given by Stefan Hagedorn in his Transponder News Special, but
- no MTV ! Maybe, I'm doing something in the incorrect way ? If you have
upgraded the
software version of your d-box to 2.1 and still see MTV's in the Viacom
package, please send me a e-mail to greatdx@usa.net with description - what
do you
do to watch MTV's there.

I can remember the way "Hot Bird" reception systems installing companies
attracted Formula-1 fans after "Russian Univercities" stopped broadcasting
the races. Of course, last year it was not a problem - 0.9m dish allowed a
F1 fan to
enjoy full coverage from Eurosport. But after loosing rights on 1997
championship, Eurosport made russian fans of Damon Hill and Michael
Schumacher to worry a lot.Channel "Russian Univercities" doesn't exist
anymore after NTV expanding,
"NTV-Plus-Sport" did not succeed in getting rights to broadcast F1
chapmionship. But now it seems that the problem is not existing anymore.
Scandinavian channels are likely to help us very much. Already long ago DR
advertised F1
races to be broadcasted on it's channels, and today, while browsing
SuperSport
Nordic Teletext, I found them there, too. Now a F1 fan in Moscow has to own
a 0.9-1.5m dish, a Nokia d-box (for DR1/DR2/Sportskanalen) or for
Supersport a D2-MAC decoder and a pirate smartcard. Thanks God, there are
lots of pirate
smartcards sold in Moscow.

Seems like good music channels will not pay attention to Russian viewers
for next years. But suddenly one string from SATCO DX update message was to
change everything - it said "VIVA 1 started on Hor Bird 1, 11.371 H, in
MPEG-2". Unfortunatelly, that day I didn't have a switch-LNB yet, and I was
able to watch only vertically-polarized channels with my d-box. After
reading this message I hurried to order a switch-LNB, and became glad that
good music now became
recieveable on a small dish in Russia. But it's not the way to be. It
always happens the same way. Next day I read "Viva 1 have left Hot Bird 1".
But there is still a digital carrier at 11.371 H, so let's hope VIVA will
be back.
