Vipi Wadau?

I am a newbie on matters FTA. Thanks to you for the informative threads I have been reading here.

I have a GTV decoder, which I have used to nab Nilesat-201 and Eutelsat 7A birds on the 90cm offset dish. I just can't seem to tune in to the built in FTA Channels on Eutelsat 7A.

Today, I bought ES-9600. I was convinced by the fact that it receives MPEG2 channels. Attached is the effidence..

Was it a hit or a miss?
Thank you.

almost all decoders receive/dec mpeg2 quality feed. Next time focus on h265 but all is not lost. Hio Nilesat-201 unapata channel gani and whats your location
Hoping things will turn out well.
I locked on Nilesat-201 using a GTV decoder but the damn thing wouldn't allow me to receive any channel. And this is the reason why I purchased this ES decoder. I should be able to know by tomorrow and will update you accordingly.
My location is Eldama Ravine (60km NW of Nakuru).

Just realized this mess. But what to do now?
Anyhow, I received 29 channels on Eutelsat 7A, mostly French. I'll try Nilesat-201 in a few minutes to see if I can get more English channels.
But as for a better decoder, I'll need to buy it from Nairobi.
Thanks bro.

If you bought from a shop you can go back and renegotiate and get atleast an mpeg 4 decorder atleast that one will serve you for sd content but with that one.....

All will receive and decide MPEG2. It’s MPEG4 that’s not automatic. Just like some will receive DVB-S2 or DVB-S.
This is now where practice meets theory.
A steep learning curve.
However, all is not lost because I have nabbed NSS7 KU (with so many channels, MBC included) and Nilesat.
Tuseme tu ni ujinga nimekuwa nayo lakini as I said, this is a learning curve. I'll buy an mpeg4 decoder when in Nairobi.

Of all the decoders in the market you bought a vitz while just by adding a K would have got a Mercedes (freesat V7 combo) l
 I am mad with myself. I bought it at 3k. So you want to tell me I could get a V7 combo at 4k? Nimejibwaga.
I hope those who sold it to me will accept to exchange it for me.
