That is the good, now for the not so good: There is no way to rename satellites. Over 125 sat names are available, but most are for the ones over Europe where this unit was intended for. There is no way to rename channels. Whatever the broadcaster names them is what they are - at least with the current firmware version. There is no way to manually enter PIDs. On some signals that are -both- in HD -and- 4:2:2, there can be a flashing green bar at the very bottom of the picture, about 2 inches high on a 56" screen.
Functionally identical QS1080IRCI model also in stock. Models differ only in front panel styling and the CI version has a slot for CAM module in addition to the functional single IREdto slot common to both models.
