There have been of course many different decoders one can think of. Nevertheless, what if it can provide some stability and less expensive too in terms of Sports and Movies.

Powervu Gsky V6 is one decoder that is able to telecast live matches from Sports 24 and Sky Sports. The decoder is able to search for and capture channels with BISS encryption to open them. Including Champions Tv channels. It is yet to be confirmed if it can open Bein Sports channels too.

The Decoder has an in built automatic BISS key which replaces old ones or when new ones are available. Since BISS keys are easy to change, it is of paramount importance to get one decoder that is able to automate things.

However, it might be a bit expensive. The decoder alone would cost around GHC250 depending on where you buy it from. Unfortunately, it does not stop there. The minimum required dish size is 1m with C-band LNB. These would also be around GHC 200. The installation would also cost much though. So in all around GHC 550 – 600 would settle everything. But should you have one of the needed stuffs, it would have helped beat down your cost in acquiring it.

Apart from its outstanding feature, it is still able to include other feature of modern satellite decoders like the RF out, HDMI Input, RS233 among others.

Finally, should you have one Q26 or Qsat 28g, you could also download the Soft cam and upload it on it. Either way, you would still have your Sports24 and Sky running. The only problem may be the changing of BISS keys ‘regularly’.  With all these scramble factors on Qsat, Powervu Gsky V6 could proof an option or?

‘It is only a fool who would not use the same yards of cloth to cover himself during cold weathers but always lie on it’ says one school of thought. FTA satellite receivers have been doing a great work. This is because they allow for other satellites to be installed on them. However, there are some misconceptions that consumers have laboured within themselves. Apart from Dstv, Canal + among few others, most satellite receivers in Ghana are FTA.

  1. Firstly, Strong decoder to most customers is for strong channels only. Which I greatly disapprove off absolutely. A colleague of mine told me he installed Multi tv for one Customer on the Strong decoder and there was a misunderstanding thereafter. The customer claims Strong decoders are for Strong only meanwhile, he did not specify which he wanted to be installed. In one other case, he installed a strong channel for a different customer using a strong decoder and he was disgusted with him though he explained to him the channels it has. And so many other examples to think about. Strong decoder is from Strong, but they do not own the FTA channels solely. This means it can be viewed on different FTA decoders around the world. One can use Slicker Sat to view Strong channels without any difficulties. Maybe the name ‘Strong’ would make you rush for it, it is ok. Nevertheless, you do not have to buy Multitv receiver when you want to watch those channels. Just go in for an LNB or a dish and there you are. However, do not forget to get a disceq switch if you do not have one. Better still, asks your installer to help you get them or contact me for one.
  1. Secondly, Multitv is among the most widely used decoders in Ghana. Since they have their own channels as such to telecast, it does not necessarily imply that it takes only their channels. You may have head of Azsky Dongle. As of the time that Azsky was working well, one could easily add either G1+ or G1 super to Multi tv Ca plus Series and enjoy the Dstv channels on it. That was what was done to cut down the cost of watching Dstv since Q-sat was a bit costive and not stable then. The same Multitv decoder can be used to view all FTA strong channels. These are over 100 channels so to speak. Though most of them are Gospel, it is enjoyable. You would here many tell you, “Multi tv is boring”. It should not be a problem, just order for a different satellite to be installed. That’s all.
  1. Thirdly, Q-sat has done well to establish itself as a Dstv and Canal Sat based decoder in West Africa. With an account on it, one could easily watch full Premium channels on it. However, as you may know, Multi tv, Strong among others can be viewed on it. This is not hugely contested since it does go scramble often, installers do advise additional satellites been installed. Though it came with Dstv in mind, hopefully, you can use it to watch Canal + too. If you try using it for the Champion Tv channels, only the FTA would open.
  1. Fourthly, Wiztech is a new decoder in the system though they have survived for long. This particularly, you would not hear a customer demand you give him Wiztech channels. It came during the times that Azsky was working perfectly. For it does open them quickly. This is due to the fact that, it has an RS232 port behind. You can hopefully get this decoder at a cool price from D-tymes Technologies.
  1. On the final note, Slicker Sat, which is an S2 and T2 decoder is noted for its 90cm dish wide. There was a high demand though not for the decoder but the dish when Being Sport can be tracked using 75 and 90cm parabolic reflectors. This one too is good for viewing FTA channels with the T2 optional; you would know your digital channels are secured. It does not come purposely with its own channels as Hotbird 13 does. It may cost high a bit but one thing to note is that, you can use a small dish for it too; with respect to the Sat you want to track.

On the whole, Strong and Multitv can work obviously the same. Only Dstv, Canal + among others whose decoders are not FTA. Even that, they have FTA channels on them for viewing; peradventure not to keep you boring when your 1 month or so subscription has expired.

Have you any other possible FTA Satellite Decoders you think I have left behind; want to ask any question, you can hopefully state it below in the ‘Have your say’ section.

‘The toad does not run in the daytime unless it chasing something or something is after it’ says one Nigerian Proverb. With SS3, SS3Ni, SS3NW off as of the time of writing, you would agree with me SS1, SS2, SS4, SS5, SS6, SS7, SS9 may not suffice the matches you would love to watch. There are some channels which does the same work as SS3.
1. Maximo is a Spanish word translating greatest possible. It is prefixed Max. Max 1P is a Spanish Version of SS3. Though it hardly opens, you can still give it a try. It shows live matches just as SS3 and co. However, this is in Spanish so you will need to change the audio. All steps as to locating these channels and their respective audio are stated below the article.
2. Max 1 is the channel that opens more frequently. As of the time of writing, it was working well. Generally, all matches played on Super sport are transmitted there too. It is for the Spanish people in mind. Though they sometimes show MotoGp racing and some other programmes that SS1, 2, 5, 7 and 9 would telecast, it is nonetheless a good place to watch your matches when SS3 is scrambled. Though I cannot guarantee it stability in terms of not showing Scrambled Channel often, they do well too in major matches as SS3.
3. Moreover, Max 2 if I should say is a Grand Master. It is does same work as Max1. However, it is quicker to telecast SS3 matches than Max1. In any case, it is a good deal to watch especially during this Copa America, CAF, and the Europe Qualification matches.
4. Finally, Max 2P serves as a direct substitute just like SS3Ni and SS3NW to SS3. It does behave like Max1P. Hardly opens but of course as it is there it will come definitely. It is a Spanish channel too.
In a nutshell, these channels are Spanish based channels and play same role as SS3.

To make things easier,
a. Press Ok on your remote
b. If it is on Eutelsat 36 satellite already,
c. Press the Green button
d. And select M
In this case, it would show all Channels starting with M
And there you would have all the Max channels listed
Press on any that which you like
Enjoy yourself

If you are on a different satellite,
a. Press Sat on your remote
b. Locate the Sat name where you often watch the SS3
c. Press Ok
d. Press the Green Button
e. And select M
In this case, it would show all Channels starting with M
And there you would have all the Max channels listed
Press on any that which you like
Enjoy yourself

There is one other way which is dynamic.
Thus, using the numbers directly
In my case,
Max 1P=169
Max 1=162

Also, the audio can be changed by pressing
a. The Audio Button on your remote.
b. First make sure it is on any of the Max channels.
c. Select Stereo/Audio
d. Right/Left

NB: I would not advise you use these numbers though it can work for you as it did for me. The fact is the numbers varies. Due to the different satellites installed for you and probably the arrangement of the channels.

Have you any other possible channels you think I have left behind; want to ask any question, you can hopefully state it below in the ‘Have your say’ section.

‘It’s all down to the weakening of the satellite signal, Avanti say “as it passes through raindrops, fog, heavy cloud cover or high winds”. Avanti, a provider of satellite broadband packages, would tell you if asked. There is Satellite up in the Sky, which receives transmissions from An Earth Station Up Link which then converts it and resends it to an Earth Station Downlink which then distributes to our digital receivers finally. Note that, when there is an interruption, it would probably affect the quality of channels you watch.
1. Multi tv channels in particularly have been hurt so much on these phenomenon. For the past 4 weeks ago, it has been showing ‘Service Unavailable’ on most channels. This became very intense on the night Juventus was playing against Barcelona in EUFA Champions League final on Tv3. As at that time, it was only 4 Kids, and Joy News that was working. Most customers who put their minds on Tv3 were disappointed with their digibox. Even now, some channels do behave so. Fortunately, it does come back. However, when it does happen when you so much need one programme to watch, you can imagine how frustrated you can be. Hopefully, it is not a fault of your own which needs an Installer. It is the insurgency of the rain and wind. When it rains, it makes it difficult for the Satellite in the sky to resend transmissions to the Earth Station downlink, talk less of your receiver catching it. It is experienced not only in Ghana or Africa but Europe too. It is the main reason why Sky Tv and its network use C-band. Though it does affect it also, it may minimise. Mind you, it is not only Service Unavailable.
2. Moreover, you can also face the issue of Bad Signal. This does begins when it looks like there is a scratch in the programme you are watching. For those having good signal qualities, it would have to rain heavy before you can expect anything of that sort. In any case, after the weather is clear, it is supposed to resume. Nonetheless, when it does not, you may have to call your installer to check it for you. It is all due to the transmission of signal through the atmosphere. The worst that can happen is for the dish to be faced with trees or be removed entirely because of the heavy down pour. I will advise installers to be careful when installing dish at places where there are trees. Both users of Qsat, Multitv, Strong among others would face these problems. Though it is less when using a C-band. On the other hand, it does not help people with Ka band since their dishes are very small.
3. Finally, users of Qsat may have double of these. You would agree with me that Q-sat uses a sim card in operation. Since the sim card is network based, the same instance does happen to networks too. Give it a try. Tyr surfing the web whiles it is raining. Whiles Q-sat users may be having bad signal, they would have to wait or contend with ‘Network Connection Success’ which does appears before ‘Welcome to server…’ With those with Wi-Fi, you may experience some difficulties too but not as those with the sim card. Peradventure bundling the data may be worse. Hopefully, this does happens to people using Sim card based receivers to watch Dstv or Canal Sat only. You cannot control this though; you could hopefully wait for the rain to subside in order to continue watching.

In a nutshell, they are the basic problems that you can face during the raining season.

Although Qsat has offered enough to suffice our desire for Dstv, Canal Sat among others, there is still some pros and cons about it.


  1. Firstly, Qsat is the cheapest way to watch Canal Sat or Dstv in Africa. This is because one can view the full Premium channels in the case of Dstv and Canal Plus full channels too. You can get the decoder only around GHC340 thereabout. Whiles the full set can cost GHC400. The interesting thing is that you don’t pay any extra cost after installation. You begin to watch full Dstv premium channels for 1 yr free after which you load an account on it again.
  2. Moreover, it has the highest sale in Africa. This is because of the Dstv monopoly and somewhat Canal Sat. So if you want to deal in it, it is a cool choice. Many Ghanaians and Nigerians and some African countries ejoy using it. Implying the demand is very high. Nevertheless, be careful when you want to be a dealer. As there are some fake ones among them. Or probably some hitches after importing or buying them like no account on them and just to mention a few.
  3. Also, Qsat is fond of releasing software to ease the hitches that dealers and customers face alike. Interestingly, they have every in mind. They do well to provide software for older models like q11, q11+, q 13 and just as you can think off. Though the company or producers cannot guarantee how long they would stay in the business, they have in any case established themselves very well. Having a website, many productions, and more dealers in Africa and across, you can be rest assured they may solve your problem. One thing to is that, there is always a solution to whatever hitch a customer may face. So you can imagine yourself not having a problem at all. Though the server can let many down as it happened back some 4 to 5 months ago, which let many to demand for Beinsport; it can be managed after all.
  4. In addition to that, Qsat is the only receiver as of the time of writing this article currently opening Dstv and Canal Sat channels. All other dongles Receivers like Zoro Box and just to mention a few including dongles like Azsky are off. There is a server problem. I hope to update you as they begin to function.


  1. To set the ball rolling, there is no service centre for Qsat decoder repairs. As in the board or any other parts getting spoilt. There is no accredited centre for services of such decoders. Nevertheless, depending on the problem, it may be solved by either using software or someone electronic minded to do it for you. In this case, you do it at your own risk. So be careful whiles using it.
  2. It can be boring sometimes using Qsat. In that it can go scramble when at a pivotal point of some movie or sporting event. It once happened to me. I was watching Chelsea vs. Manchester City in the FA Cup semi- finals last two years ago. It so happened that when Fernando Torres was about to score, it went scramble. After everything has calmed down, it began working again. The same thing when I was watching one Nigerian Movie on Africa Magic, suspense was very high and in no time, scrambled channel came again. It does happen so often as if it has been programmed to behave so.
  3. Qsat, either 11g, 15g, or 28g, all are controlled by servers and network. In this vain, no one fellow can guarantee how long it would take to be stable and not see anything like scramble. Even the manufacturers themselves have no definite power over the server as it is alternated from different sources. One thing for sure is that, they it can be made stable but for how long is not guaranteed.

So you see, whenever you want to buy Qsat, do consider these options. Nevertheless, it is a good product on the average.

“It is only the hunter who knows what actually happens in the forest” one school of thought claims. Installers generally have a way of relating to a customer. Depending on so many factors like experiences, motive, mood among others. However, there are 7 things they would wish you do not know yet.

  1. Installers are profit conscious. In cases where you have to buy a particular good, there are of course same goods on the market but different prices. They are all in any case substitutes. For instance a Disec switch. One store will sell it at GHC 20.00 whiles another store may sell it at GHC 25.00. The fact is that one store too may actually sell it at GHC 10.00. In this case the installer would prefer to mention or refer you to the store which sells it at GHC 25.00. And when you do know where it can be sold at GHC 20.00, he tells you it is not of a good quality.
  2. It is a natural phenomenon to always want to work with different people in as much you keep your old customers. They sometimes when called upon to solve a particular problem would notice a different one which may begin to show up some few weeks later or months. When he is through with the required work called upon. He would not tell you of the upcoming one which could be easily prevented fully or at a low-cost. The assumption is that different work, different charge. So he would probably not give you his expert advice on making that problem dissolve. Instead for another day.
  3. Installers do not want to be questioned much. Yes, that is the fact. He wants you to just relax and watch what he does. Not complaining, commenting, or questioning. Sometimes it looks like you want to bite more than you can chew. So he might not like it definitely.
  4. In some cases, like signal loses, you would probably not want to pay much after a heavy cost in first time installation. Depending on the installer, he can choose to charge you high though the work required to be done are minimal. Peradventure the coaxial cable running from the dish to your decoder has removed from the connector. So it shows bad or no signal. As a lame man, you would think it is from the dish. Probably because a wind blew heavy yesterday before the rain began. So when you call him, since very experienced, he can detect where the problem is coming from with just some few checking not necessarily touching the dish. If it happens so you would prefer paying him small which he would not like. To end all those dramas, he would climb up, temper with the dish for about 30 minutes whiles asking you to check for signal quality. Come in and run some settings from the menu for about 10 minutes and then finally re-fix the coaxial cable which removed from the decoder’s back. Just to make sure he has done some really good work meanwhile he could actually do that on coming. So you see you may be compelled to pay high after the whole process meanwhile a little could have been ok.
  5. Installers like to really convince customers that they know best in their field. For instance telling you that he can install 4 LNB’s on one dish. Installing over 100 channels for you which are Free to Air {FTA} among others. Generally, a good installer should know how to convince a customer who may not be willing to buy or do so after all. If you ask a Marketing Student, you will hear “business strategy”. Where as you may not be ready to get a particular work done today, for persuasion, you would obviously. This is one of the techniques they employ.
  6. Charging based on statue or wealthy nature. I know this is not fair. Nevertheless, when an installer finds out that you have enough money on you, he will be tempted to give you high prices of things definitely you are not aware when needs buying. Or even the cost for installation, signal lost among others, he will probably charge you high if it reminds him that you have bunch. Vice-versa when you are not all that rich, he may consider and give you moderate prices for your statue sakes.
  7. Finally, though very bad on their side, you could imagine yourself calling them every two weeks or a month after a new installation has been done. Sometimes, an installer may not render to you a professional service. In that, he does a shoddy work after all. It means that peradventure allowing the bolt and nuts holding the angle bar to be loose behind the dish, using few nails to hold the stand, giving you a low signal quality among others. These obviously mean you have to call them back after a month because it has not been done well. If you are not lucky, you would be charged high to see them do it for you again. The worst of all is that the trend may continue in that after 3 or 4 months you have to call them again, why, there is a heavy downpour of rain.

“How does the whole Satellite Installation process look like? Why cannot I install one myself?”Satellite dish installation is a tedious task in any way. This is not saying you cannot install one. However there are five basics things you need to know before going for an installation.

1. Have the required tools like the spanner, screw drivers, pliers among others and materials like the nails, black tape, LNB connectors and just to mention a few.

2. Know the satellite you want to track and the Transponder Frequency including the Symbol Rate. Every satellite and the direction the dish must face. Basically they are East and West. Also to determine whether you are facing the East or the West, you can hopefully look at similar dish positions around the area you are but it is not guaranteed as one may face the West whiles you want to track from the East. You may get confused in this case. So I will advise you use the ‘Shadow Factor’. I discovered this personally on my own. When it is in the morning before noon and your shadow is on the left side, it implies that your right side is the East. When it is after noon and the shadow is on the right side, it implies East is on you right. Very simple.

3. Now you have the required tools and materials for the job, you know what satellite you are tracking, the next thing is to ask yourself if you want to use a Spectrum Analyzer or ask the Customer to watch for you. Definitely you will need one of them. Nevertheless the easiest way is to get a Spectrum Analyzer or a Satellite Finder. If the customer would have to do it for you, then he or she has to pay much attention to it.

4. Before nailing the dish stand, you should make sure it is nowhere branches of trees, ropes or lines interferences at they may block signal. They are major factors in that you can spend many hours on tracking signal if you do not have a clear atmosphere to deal with.

5. Finally, with the entire above mentioned in place, you are going to do the real job. Thus, tracking signal. This is what makes it an installation in most of the installers’ eyes. Do not be in haste when tracking even if you are ‘grand master’. Relax but pay as much as focus, 100% if you can. I tell you, it may be difficult. Nevertheless, you can. I wish you best of luck.

Have you any other possible steps you think I have left behind; want to ask any question, you can hopefully state it below in the ‘Have your say’ section.
