The Portsdown will work with the BATC Version 2 MiniTiouner (using the Serit FTS-4334 and FTS-4335 tuners only) to receive DVB-S and DVB-S2 signals over the frequency range 144 MHz to 2450 MHz. The receive symbol rate is limited to the range 66 kS to about 5 MS; reception at below 66 kS is not currently possible.

The receive functionality was recently enhanced in the Portsdown 4. The new capability is described here.

QO-100 or Terrestrial?

The receiver has 2 sets of presets; one for QO-100 and another for terrestrial. Most receiver parameters are also stored separately for each of these bands. You can switch between bands using the top left button on the receiver screen. The Configuration Menu title also shows which band you are setting the parameters for.

Receive Modes

There are now 4 receive modes. Each uses a different video player or receive scan method.

RECEIVE

The button labelled RECEIVE starts the receiver scanning
