In one of the very first sat-moscow issues I quoted the article in "MK"
newspaper, 
where I found words about NTV Plus digital plans to switch to MPEG-2 in
late summer 1997. At that time, of course, nobody believed in that article,
because 
NTV Plus bought a giant ammount of analogue recievers and decoders to
re-sale.
But during last week I recieved a piece of information from one of people,
who work in "General Satellite", that NTV Plus really has digital plans.
But the source didn't advise to publish this information as an official one
yet. He confirmed, that the switch
date will probably be ... late summer 1997 ! Like in "MK" !
But it's pretty hard to understand what NTV Plus and General Satellite is
planning
to do with thousands of analogue "Strong" recievers and "Gals Decoder
Syster" devices, but let's return to the supplied information.
Right after switching to MPEG-2, NTV Plus will broadcast totally 16
channels (that means that 11(12) new ones will start). An "american" MPEG-2
will be used - probably DSS or PowerVu. Also the price of the entire kit
(0.6m dish, LNB, and a digital IRD) is named - 300$. According to the
source, "regular" NTV Plus clients (probably who bought an analogue system
in NTV-Sat), will have their analogue recievers and "Gals Decoder Syster"
devices freely replaced.

Maybe, most of you, after such headline thought that the 5th transponder on
Gals satellites works fine, and it haven't failed, as it was known before.
No way. NTV Plus
just wants to earn more money, probably for realisation of their digital
plans. 5th
NTV Plus channel - is an erotic-movie channel. Yes - it is now comes
separatelly from "Mir Kino", but still uses same frequency. For decoding
this channel you will need one more key, and if you want to watch the
entire NTV Plus package now,
you'll have to pay extra 10$ per month - totally 22$. This information also
came from "General Satellite", also was confirmed by "Radiotehnika".

In Sat-Moscow Digital Special vol.2 I have already written, that not so
long ago
lost the possibility to recieve channels between 11.900 and 12.750 GHz, I
thought that I lost them because of having my d-box connected to a PC just
before that crash.
But as a matter of fact, it is not so. On the same day, some minutes later
after connecting the d-box to PC, I discovered (with help of same FAQ) the
second
secret menu of d-box - "blue" menu. This menu is called by following
sequence:
"Menu-Einstellungen-0000-0000".  There was nothing interesting in "blue
menu", and I soon left it by pressing TV. Here all the trouble started. As
a matter of fact, there is
a bug in d-box's software - simply entering the blue menu will kill 22 Khz
band switch. This thing happened to my d-box - I lost the ability to get
"Ku-High".
There are several ways to solve this problem, for example using external 22
Khz switcher. But this way is hard, and you will have some problems. The
ideal way out is offered by Stefan Hagedorn. Thank you very much !
In red menu, you have to press "6" to enter "Installation menu". Now press
"down" button untill you will see "Select 22 Khz on/off ?". Press 1 and OK
here.
Exit to main red menu by pressing "left". Now press 8 to enter "Reciever
setup menu".
Press down to get "Select to save parameters ?". Press OK. Now press
TV-RADIO-TV to leave red menu. Press MENU, choose Einstellungen, enter
0000, choose 
Satellitenantenne, press OK and press down to choose "Antennenanzahl".
Change number 1 here to 2, by pressing right.  Press up to choose "Weiter"
and press OK.
Press TV to leave the menu. Now return to the screen where you entered 2
instead of 1. Change the number back to 1, then choose Weiter, press OK,
and press TV.
After this, d-box will "forget" about your visit to the blue menu and
everything will work fine again. Again, greatest thanks to Stefan Hagedorn
for solution !

Unfortunatelly, last week I had a lot of things to do (outside the
satellite world). The furthercoming week will probably the same. Sorry if I
didn't answer some e-mail letters - I will do as soon as possible. This
issue should be bigger and include
following topics, but I'll include them in next issue.
