You have to look for the PowerVu Model D9223 from S.A. Its a little more
costly (about US$ 1250,-) but offers you more flexibility for
MPEG-reception. This commercial unit works on MCPC and SCPC signals and
provides variable bandwidths. The output is in PAL or NTSC.
With a little programming trick you can adapt this receiver to different
MPEG-standards. Have a look on my advice regarding this changes on this
pages (Sept.17).
