Default FTA is Far from Over (TDG)

Thanks to coders recent efforts we are all STILL enjoying TV, but the industry itself is in a slump. People are afraid to buy FTA receivers now, due largely to the legal scare tactics used by providers, and the constant barage of ECM's. This is exactly what they wanted, to scare enough people into believing the end is near. This is FAR from the truth! They've thrown everything at us, including timer specific, clock specific, map calls & combinations there of. Each time coders from the various Teams have beaten the providers nastiest ECM's, and shown some true ingenuity in finding solutions. Competition has been excellent and down time has been minimal. We've seen who is on top of the game and surprisingly, MANY have responded and shown their market tenacity to stay in this game. I'm not here to push one brand over the other, quite to the contrary, I'm simply stating for the record, that this game is far from over. We've seen many different manufacturers and coding Teams respond very quickly to the hurdles presented by providers, and this is good. Competition is always healthy for every market. This keeps manufacturers on their toes and brings benefits to us all. What everyone needs to realize is, these last few weeks, providers have pulled out all the stops to try and frustrate coders and testers alike. This has had the desired effect on the market and sales have slowed, but it has also led coders to certain break thru's that just about guarantees less downtime in the future. A few very smart & talented people pooled their info & knowlege and have come out with an actual emulator that works with out a card. The new emulator is actually able to duplicate and emulate all map functions, as well as timers & timer functions, and is clock cycle specific & accurate down to 1 clock cycle. While a complete emulation of the Rom is currently too large to fit in the individual bins, they can now get very specific information that before was hidden. Timer responce times can now be logged, as well as map calls and clock jitter. VERY accurate files can now be written and much quicker than ever before. Barriers between coder groups have been breached. Knowlege is being shared now better than ever before, and much has been learned about providers ecm's and their own limitations. As I stated earlier, I'm not here to push any one brand over the other, I am here to ask you all to take a minute and reflect at how far this entire industry has come. We have benefits and features that were thought impossible at one time, and FTA has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry! Don't let providers win! Don't give into their scare tactics & don't believe that its anywhere near the end. The way I see it, they've already hit us with their best shot, each time we rallied and came back. That in itself should be comforting enough for all to have Peace of mind enough to make an informed decision, and subsequent purchase of your favorite box without fear that it will all end tomorrow.

Simply put, that aint happening, not tomorrow nor anytime soon. It's "far from over"

Thanks to TDG (Veracity)

ppl do not understand that the FTA was out before there were any DN or Bev receivers..bedfore dave..they had FTA receivers since they have had a BUD...it was a add on to the dish mover..then they added a power supply to the FTA and all was good till they added a VC then they had a extra box to add to the FTA or the all in one receiver..then they started adding the VCII to the receivers...but a FTA has been around a lot longer than anyone of the so called small dish's were released
and DN ( echosphere or Houston Tracker before that ) is the world largest FTA manufactured around...so all a FTA is a competition for them in other countries they sell there stuff at....all a DN or Bev receiver is....is a FTA without the extra satellites but there own and a card slot...and now they don't even have that

Nobody worries.. In the near future, anyone can broadcast any event through Internet with a HD Webcam from your own TV, so everybody could see it. No more Boxes, FTA, Bin Files. OK?

I was going to say the same thing, but you say It so much better. I was going to say BUY, BUY, BUY and support the companies that provide the equipment and info we need to test.

I decided to go FTA not too long ago. At first time the Bin Files used to last 3 to 4 months.
Im a cable TV subscriber and watched games that I cant see in my cable connection. Now with the Bin Files lasting only 3 days and going Black Out for a week, FTA is going to be thing of the past. People would get discouraged and would invest in FTA receivers, and other equipment. I was thinking in getting a new Receiver but now I might not do it until I see a change. Many people would think about it and the sales of FTA equipment would go down.

This is what providers want people think.
