    Default PC DVB in Thailand


    I have an SS2 system (which I find to be quite good) in the UK, but also spend part of the year in Thailand, where at present I only have older CAM-based receivers. I do not have fast internet access in Thailand. I had been thinking for a while that I would get a USB PC DVB box like the Twinhan Starbox to use in Thailand, and bring the latest softcam file with me on my notebook PC for my Thai visits. I'm wondering whether to do this for the summer but then had the thought that things may now have moved on so much that I will not gain many channels. Can anybody tell me what I could hope to receive other than the usual FTA stuff I will get anyway? Have C (motorised 8ft) and KU (6 **** solid + 70cm) dishes.

    Please don't tell me to get a Dreambox (may when I have broadband). Thanks for your answers.

    with your Softcam file you cant open many channels here and also you know the FTA Channels its not good here you can trie Dream TV on Agila 146° but you are in south thailand not aviable with your Dish size also you musst edit your Softcamfile evry Day and also very soon no keys aviable for this Provider the latest key you will find here for Dream TV

    another way you have any ISP connection GPRS ok with 115 kb/s and use Gbox ore Newcamd with your PCI Card

    Thanks. No surprises then? I knew about Dream but wondered whether HKC or any others were possible. As far as I can see the keys for HKC don't get published regularly.

    I bet you were wrong ! Unless you were in expat Pattaya 95 percent of Thais would not be interested in Dream as they dont understand English . More likely the dishes were pointing 8 degrees further west to the porn channels which 95 percent of young Thai men ARE interested in watching !

    Daeng as usual is right. Nothing much to see fta and especially so if you cannot understand Thai, Malay, Chinese or Hindi which forms the bulk of available channels..almost all .
    Why not consider Daeng's suggestion of gprs for internet access. Many expats living in the rural areas use this ands its not expensive in Thailand.

    Thanks for the extra information.

    (a) I suppose that GPRS is a possibility, but on my last trip when I went to buy a 1-2-Go sim in the MBK centre nobody could give me any sense, beyond that I would need to visit an AIS office to set things up. I used to have a monthly AIS account but don't now. Incidentally are people thinking of standard GPRS or edge?

    (b) I did mean HKC on Telstar, though I am also interested to hear about anything else like I-Skynet.

    (c) My location is central Isaan - not Pattaya. Hence no broadband.
