Taylor Enterprises is now able to program their receivers with most of the stations viewable in North America making them "plug and play".
This is a special service they offer for their customers only.
Most receivers require only two items be entered, the frequency, and the symbol rate. I have scrolled to a group, we call them a bouquet, of Saudi TV, Palestinian, Dubai, Jordan, and other channels plus some radio stations.
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.
A couple of thousand dollars an hour for a better bird are not unusual for part time use.
WHERE DO YOU FIND LISTINGS OF WHAT IS AVAILABLE The answer is simple, you find it on the Internet. Every day Christian Lyngemark spends a few hours updating information from every broadcast satellite in the world from his office in Sweden. He relies on information from the programmers and satellite owners plus an army of volunteer spotters located around the world. Today, unless you live in an area with no phone access, there is no excuse for not being on the Internet. Starband is available from Dish Network, and Pegasus Express is available from Pegasus that use satellite rather then phone or cable lines.
Power Vu is a Scientific Atlanta system and can sometimes be received with MPEG-2 FTA receivers. freq under a satellite setup and may note it elsewhere on the setup page.
At the bottom of the page I see that all MPEG-2 non scrambled listings are highlighted in a light yellow color. The receiver uses these two frequencies to calculate the L-band frequency that all receivers use to tune the channel. This is the rate the size of the digital package transmission, akin to a modem bit rate.
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.
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.
