High Definition Satellite & Terrestrial PVR Set-top-Box

The name of the receiver is F16, same as the name of the well-known jet fighter. Coincidence? Let’s take a look…
  • Rapid-fire guns (high-speed card-reader, two CI slots, fast channel zapping time)
  • Telemetry systems (full-time connection to the Internet by Ethernet via LAN)
  • Black Box: HD PVR-ready (via external USB and eSATA) for recording the programs; time-shift and trick-mode
  • Easy-to-fly: The PVR-recordings of the F16 - can be played on the PC without any conversion
  • Effective armor: equipped with full protection against short-circuit of the LNB cable (really rare function nowadays)
  • RADAR: pro-grade SPECTRUM ANALYZER embedded 
The facts and numbers:  
  • 2 tuners for reception of both satellite (DVB-S) and terrestrial TV (DVB-T), including MPEG-4 DVB-T SD
  • Quality HDTV picture: watch both SDTV and HDTV
  • UPSCALE function allows convert SD channels to resolutions up to 1920*1080
  • PVR ready: recording and Timeshift functions (external HDD needed, USB or SATA)
  • D.I.Y. dish installation: professional grade SPECTRUM ANALYZER embedded
  • Blind scan of any satellite
  • No need to buy CAM for most original cards. Possible to use up to 3 smartcards (using CAMs) if required
  • Smartcard channel zapping time is so much better for some of the via-providers : see and experience for yourself
  • Ethernet port for connection to LAN and to remote servers via Internet for software upgrades, etc.
  • Adjustable speed of RS-232 connection
  • DVB-S and DVBS-S2 (new!) compatible
  • Decoding of MPEG-2, MPEG-4 SD, MPEG-4 HD, H.264 AVC
  • Supports 576i, 576p, 720p, 1080i
  • HDMI output for best digital picture quality without any conversion loss
  • PrPbY (CrCbY) component signal output for best picture quality
  • S-Video Out
  • USB 2.0 port for firmware updates
  • Media player features: playback of movies, music and pictures from external USB drive
  • RF-modulator for signal distribution
  • S/PDIF optical digital audio output
  • DiSEqC 1.1 support for connection of up to 16 dishes
  • DiSEqC 1.2 and USALS functions for motorized dish control
  • Subtitles and teletext
  • Parental control
