    Default CBNsat Receiver


    I have a CBNsat receiver provided by the Sri Lankan DTH service provider. The receiver is okay but compared with modern receivers, it lacks a lot of useful features. Furthermore, watching FTA channels other than those in the CBN package is blocked. The recveiver is badged as CBNsat but it is really a COSHIP CDVB5110D

    1. Is there a way to view other FTA channels on the receiver?

    2. Can I use the ****** card provided by CBNsat in another CAM or receiver? I have tried it on Humax 5400 that has ****** slot but doesn't work. Haven't got an ****** CAM at the moment to try.

    Thanks Shakeeb

    I also tried DM 7000 with Newcamd but no luck either. I should be getting an original ****** 2 CAM soon. Will try and post the results, but I suspect it will just be the same.

    Like you said CBNsat is probabily using a different version of ******, or perhaps the card is locked (married) to the receiver like the Conax card and DishTV receiver.

    It is correct,you can not use the card in any other receiver or cam.
    I have signal strenght of 64%
    and signal quality of 60%
    on the CBN Set Top Box
    and my DVB-S Card which is more sensitive is showing 88% level and 100% quality.
    And in Sri Lanka the signal is very stable.
    But in the Maldives (where?) you are just at the corner of the beam and you really need a larger dish.
    For the footprint see: http://www.panamsat.com/global_network/pas12_ku.asp
    With the DVB-S card I can see other channels from PAS if I want, in the CBN Box these channels are blocked.
    I was scanning other frequencies,found good signal with the CBN Box and got the new channels,but therafter a message 'service is not authorised' appears on the screen.
    May be it's due to government restrictions that they don't allow the reception of Tamil Eelam TV (from the Tamil Tigers)?
    My original CBN dish has 60cm and I had only on one day a signal loss for a few minutes due to very heavy rain.

    Thanks Hikkaduwa

    So it looks like we have to live with the limitations. I was just hoping to use the card on a better receiver.

    @Shakeeb, Try an offset dish instead of the 6ft prime focus. Offset dishes are a lot better for Ku band signal. The 60cm dish that CBN gives may be a bit small when you are not actually in the **** print of the signal. I think a 1m dish will be good enough. The LNB and its setting are also important when the signal is weak.

    Default CBN SAT Rx

    yes ,i think the receiver's software is programmed to block the FTA channels,by replacing soft with normal loder provided by COSHIP company,receiver may work for FTA,but you may loose the pay tv channels.
    i also tried to COPY/READ their card in vergin condition-using CAS 2 with the software provided by DUOLABS, but card only allows to read EXTERNAL EEPROM,not allow to read INTERNAL EEPROM,
    by detecting the card it gives this
    ATR Card : CE BC 7C 40 7C 42 8E 4C 30 4E B0 B0 72 CC 00 BC 80 CE 40 8E 72 3C B2 B2 3C C2 80 BC 3E
    does any one know the meaning of this keys ?
    does any one have the software for cas2 to copy /read the cards - other than DUOLABS.i'll be appriciate if some one can.

    Its a second generation ****** card so I dont think there is any chance of copying it (yet). You may be able to get the ATR, and thats about all you could do.

    I don't remember seeing the serial number on the screen (finger printing). It may have appeared ocassionaly, but certainly not as frequently as DishTV.
