IKS is Internet Key Sharing.. it requires.. a receiver, that works with a dongle or hub.. or has an ethernet port built into the receiver to be able to connect.. it to your router/modem.. which has multiple Ethernet Ports.. on the back side of it.. to connect to.. with an ethernet cable..
There are only several working brands right now..
CNX....... Ilink..... Satzen..... and Sonicview....
Nfusion used to be a good way to go, but they have been down for over 2 months now.. Kbox is trying to come back up again. the last I checked.. which was awhile back...
Only certain models.. also.. Sonicview only works with.. the 8000HD and the 2 360 receivers, the Elite and the Premier...
You still need to be pointed and connected to the dish.. but you also need to have Internet connection... preferably.. high speed...
The Sonicview(SV)... uses a IHUB.. go to the Sonicview Ihub discussion area..
CNX.. uses a dongle. for the Nano it uses the IX-200.. the Nano 2.. uses an adapter, because the Nano 2.. has ethernet built into it, but does not have an actual Ethernet port.. built into it..
The Satzen and I-link use an adapter similar to the Nano 2 adapter..
All 3.. are on the same server.. most other brands, doing a form of IKS... though it is called EKS and other names.. is usually on a private server.. and they want to charge you a fee..we suggest you stay away from such situations.. because it leaves a paper trail. that is not good.. for you..
You are connecting to a server, that is using a legit receiver or receivers.. to get, whatever they are subsribing too... and that is what you get to watch.. this is not full time tv.. it is a hobby.. it is part time tv.. so do not think you will be up all the time.. .. hope that gives you a brief idea.. good luck.. txsgent
