Must have alternative software for many current DVB /s cards, like the SkyStar 1 / 2, or the Hauppauge Nova TV.
Very usefull for Center / South and Easter Europeans, for reasons a legal forum can't explain.
It is not a newbie - friendly, neither an easy to use program. It doesn't care to be that way. So keep that in mind: It is only for advance users with a before knowledge of those subjects.
It has various plug in's, which adds tones of features. Depending your location (country), some of them might be or not illegal.
A new plug in, allows to the nokia 92xx/9500/96xx desktop satellite receivers, to use progdvb as their own firmware, with all the benefits it has. Yeah, even the emulation works (tested by me...)
The author of the program is from Russia and most of the plug ins come from Center and East Europe (Checz Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Serbia, etc). So, most of the documentation about it, are not present in English (and never gonna be....). If you are native english speaking users and you don't wish to use online translators and dictionaries to understand most feauters of this program, don't bother with it. The rest, go get it! You won't believe the alternatives that gives to your cheap DVB/s card!
A perfect 10 for this freeware program. Get it!
