  1. Thank for educating us about the installation most especially TSTV. But can i track Tstv here in Taraba state Nigeria now?

    1. Thanks for the comment, we just added the subscription button just because of your request! Keep on visiting, we appreciate your feedback.

  2. great work! pls there was power failure during blind scanning of my tstv, I completed the scanning when light was restored but I could not exit the “installation guide page”. I have scanned severally, I found some FTA. but to exit and watch those station, it will take back to installation guide page.
    your advice pls, thanks

    1. After scanning, switch off the decoder and unplug the cable from power outlet, wait for about 3 minutes and connect back.

  3. I am using Tstv on satelite:Eutelsat w6 symbol rate & frequency 11.087 (v) 29.999, but i not trak the signal now why?

  4. Weldon Sir you have tried it’s not easy….but I still want you to throw more light on multiple lnbf on a single pan…am Christopher from Benue….

    1. Track with the Dstv frequency and symbol rate, but you can be able to view only 3 Dstv fta channels while other channels are scrambled.

  5. Hello Techcrunch, I am from Bamenda, Cameroon. Please do you have an idea about the FTA satellite settings with which i can receive MBC Action on a 60cm dish. I think most settings that work in Nigeria will easily work well in this part of Cameroon too.

  6. pls i’m trying to track mbc but after the blind scan the only channels that come’s up are dstv channels. i used the correct mbc settings to track. what could be the problem

  7. I am new to this site and also novice to acquiring decoder.please, i want to know the best decoder one can use for free to air,where get software for installation and material. I want to do it myself because, the guy i gave #20000 to help me do it until now nothing has been done and guide. thanks

    1. You are welcome Mr.James. Strong HD universal decoder is the best for free to air satellite TV in Nigeria. The aspect of you doing it yourself without acquiring the basic practicals/training of satellite TV installation is not possible because the installation work is too technical! Of which a simple coaxial wire error or obstruction can make you track until next 1000 years without getting any signal.

  8. I have a Nokia decoder bought in Saudi came with a wide dish but rain have destroyed the dish..pls which dish can I use to revive the decoder..the decoder is still intact but not used for a long time now

    1. Is the decoder a universal one, is it customized for a specific channels? If no is the answer, you can use any satellite dish depending on the channels you want to receive.

  9. I also have a qsat decoder used with sim those days..please I want to know if the settings is back to life so I can abandon my gotv

          1. Hi! Can you pls help me with the following frequency and symbol rate:
