Radio and TV reception via satellite dish is still very popular, as it offers significant advantages over other types of reception. The costs for the purchase of technology such as parabolic mirrors and receivers are incurred only once. There are no monthly fees as for cable or Internet reception, unless pay-TV offers are desired. Despite all this, users do not have to do without quality in satellite reception. In addition to SD channels from all over the world, numerous German-language HD channels are now available via satellite. They offer a crystal clear picture and thus the best TV enjoyment. But to get the most out of the satellite dish, a suitable receiver is required. The market offers many different models in this segment, from simple digital receivers to HDTV receivers to new UHD or 4K receivers. The selection can be difficult.

Television & Home Cinema: Receiver Video Guide

Television programmes in HD quality promise an outstanding TV experience. In addition to an HDTV-capable television set, an HDTV receiver or DVB-S2 receiver is required for their reception. Ideally, the TV set and receiver are connected via an HDMI cable (“High Definition Multimedia Interface”). HDMI is able to transport the receiver’s signal to the TV in Full HD resolution (1080p), ensuring the best possible picture. For connection to older TV sets, many HDTV receivers such as the Xoro HRS 8660 have an alternative SCART connection. However, it should be noted here that SCART cannot transmit the signal to the TV in HD quality and that this transmission results in a considerable loss of picture quality.

More and more HDTV receivers support the practical timeshift function. It makes it possible to pause the current TV programme with an external USB hard disk or USB stick and to fast-forward and rewind it. The advantages of this function are particularly evident in live sports events and films. A receiver that supports timeshift is the popular Comag SL 40 model, which is also available with this and other USB-connected receivers for recording programmes and movies. Corresponding models are offered on the market with the addition PVR or PVR-ready. Some devices, such as the TechniSat S2, also bear the designation DVR or DVR-ready. The abbreviation stands for “Digital Video Recorder”. These devices also allow digital TV and radio broadcasts to be recorded on an external USB hard drive.

To ensure that the recorded programmes can be played back smoothly later, the USB storage medium should at least support the USB 2.0 standard. That means at least:

offers. In addition, the connected USB hard drive should be empty, as most HDTV receivers format the storage medium the first time they are used and erase all content.

Newer receivers are equipped with Ethernet ports and/or WLAN and can therefore be easily integrated into the home network. Devices with DLNA enable data exchange with other devices in the home network. This makes it easy to transfer your own pictures and videos to the TV set. Connected to the Internet, additional web services such as YouTube can be used via receivers such as the TechniSat TechniCorder ISO STC. This is particularly worthwhile if the TV set is not a so-called smart TV with an integrated Internet connection.

For an additional monthly fee, the range of SD, HD and radio stations can be significantly expanded. Prerequisites for this are Sky or HD+ certified receivers or receivers with a CI+ interface. Receivers like the Telestar Teledigi 4 HD+ are compatible with the HD Pay TV offer of the private TV providers and already bring along an HD+ access card for half a year. Occasionally, the receivers also contain releases for a whole year. In order to access Sky’s programme diversity, a subscription with the pay-TV provider must be connected in addition to the receiver.

Still new on the market are 4K or UHD receivers such as the Humax Digital UHD 4tune+ Quad Tuner. They can be used to view razor-sharp 4K content from the home network via DLNA on the UHD-capable TV set. TV programs in 4K resolution are not yet available, but pay-TV channel Sky is already planning to launch a UHD channel. In any case, the future belongs to UHD and 4K respectively.
