    Thanks as I intend to buy the Humax 2000 HD receiver there. These are not sold in Thailand despite the fact that the HD tv's are available in every big store and we can receive Luxe HD tv on Eutelsat.

    yes i heard like that, and also they sent a warning to all the people which live in Jebel Ali to remove the personal dish , i afraid that itis just a starting to remove all the dishes around the UAE.
    Technosat, Humax, Starsat, Metabox, Kaon, Dreambox, Nokia, and echolink all i have in one room.

    so what authorities intend to do? play cowboys and lasso every dish in a residential area? Dubai has the most electronics items you could ever find from cellphones to satellite receivers, computers etc blah blah are they gonna sieze these satellite receivers too
    and yes, i heard that too in ksa over 20yrs ago but still you can find every rooftop filled w/ satellite dish it can hold (ha! ha! ha! oh come on lets get it on)
    No GUTS!No GLORY!

    If the restriction only to India's DishTV ... then remove coverd packet and any logo/sticker from the STB, and say its another brand. I dnt think they will put the receiver to a dish and TV to test inside the Airport And buy separately a small dish of Rs 500/- INR equivalent there.
