The FORTEC STAR 786v3 satellite receiver provides digital free-to-air satellite reception. A state-of-the-art consumer decoder that employs the latest in MPEG-2 digital technology.


Watch Free-to-air International & ethnic TV and Radio Channels  

on Telstar 5 satellite, Galaxy 10R, AMC4, Galaxy 3C, and other satellites.  High quality system!

No monthly subscription fees to pay! 

The intuitive On-Screen Display (ODS) provides immediate identification of channels when using the fully automatic channel scan, update and storing features.  With the ability to move, delete, and re-name channels, bouquets or satellite information, it's simple to reorganize your channels the way you want them.

This competitively priced receiver is also a perfect choice for slaving to your big dish analog receiver or 4Dtv systems. It ships with the latest software.  Receiver and channel editing software are available for your PC here:  COMPREHENSIVE SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD SITE *

Advantages over other receivers:

  • 10 Event VCR timer.  That means, if you want to record a program on your VCR when you are out of the house, you can program this receiver to turn ON and OFF at a certain time and go to a certain channel to record your favorite program on your VCR.  Other receivers don't have that feature.

  • EASY HH Motor control and setup.  If you decide to add an HH Motor (STAB) now or in the future to move your dish, this is the best receiver available to control your motor. It has the USALS feature which makes searching for other satellites in the sky a very simple procedure.

What is NIT (Network Information Table) SEARCH?

When searching channels using this method, the receiver will first Auto tune the TP’s in the receiver’s database. Then, it will search for any NIT information, which may be broadcast by the satellite service provider, from the signal available and subsequently tune those TP’s which are not included in the receiver database.
