1. No, only occ. feeds are available via ORION F1 and INTELSAT K
2. There are no B-Mac decoders available to the public. It is not wise to 
buy a B-MAC decoder on the black market. The system is adressable and this 
decoder is nothing more then a good looking box with a lot of electronical 
spare parts.
3. It depends on the tv-set. Some sets show a b&w-picture with less lines 
and others cant find the vertical sync.
