TNT, The Caertoon Channel and Chinese Channel is not encrypted.
The D-Box is the problem.

TNT, Cartoon, TVBS (Chinese) are not encrypted on Astra. I can watch
them by entering the PID codes for these channels using my Nokia dbox.
Subject: Landscape Channel return ?

Following on from the announcement on SAT 1 teletext
page 515 about Discovery to start in analogue clear
off of Hot Bird, I see it is also announced that
Landscape Channel will return to satellite too on June
1, although it does not mention whether this will be in
analogue or digital.
Does anybody know any more about this or, better still,
the URL or their Web Site (if they have one) or their
e-mail address would be appreciated.

Subject: Dbox Setup Utility V2.1
From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Miguel Oliveira)

I finished a new version of the Remote Dbox Setup Utility. I'm calling
this one 2.1 and hopefully its free of all the bugs that affected the
previous version. It has a few new features as well, thanks mostly to the
users feedback and the helping hand from a few fellow DXers :-)
There are two separate ZIPED files for this release, one is named
UPDATE.ZIP and is destined to those users who already have the previous
version, and thus don't need to download all the files again. The other
one, named DBOX21:ZIP contains all the files needed to run the program.
I'm hoping to lessen the burden on the used servers this way as well as
minimise the download times.
