Most receivers require only two items be entered, the frequency, and the symbol rate. All of these channels are compressed onto one transponder.I know that I can receive this bouquet because column five indicates that the signal is MPEG-2 and no scrambling system is noted.
With most MPEG2-FTA receivers, programming is done via the remote control.
Fortunately, once the information is entered, the information is stored into the receivers memory.
Since most receivers are made for the Asian markets it is not unusual to see satellites such as Asia Sat programmed into memory.
Fortunately, all receivers come with the ability to delete programming.
Originally the receivers required users to calculate L-band frequency, PID, FEC and to manually enter this information into the receiver.
Today much of this is automatically calculated by most receivers. I have scrolled to a group, we call them a bouquet, of Saudi TV, Palestinian, Dubai, Jordan, and other channels plus some radio stations.
and Canadian Cable industry distributes their programming largely via products sold by Motorola and a few others, the rest of the world chose the MPEG-2 format.
Equally important is the way the programmers get the their product to their retail outlets such as DBS and cable. Dish Network uses the Nagra system of encryption, Direc TV uses a News Data system, and full view big dish primarily uses the Digicipher system.
No mention is made if Digicipher, Viaccess or IRDETO or other scrambling methods.
