Fortec Star is one of the most popular satellite brand on the market, not only in the USA, but also in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.  The Fortec Star Fortune is made in Korea with quality components, supplies and parts and comes with a full 1-year warranty.  This receiver is the most user-friendly satellite receiver and easy to setup.  Hobbyist's favorite.  It's customers number 1 choice because of the component video output and excellent picture quality.  Below are some screen shots and brief explanation of the menu and the receiver functions.


Colorful & Interactive screen with over 20 languages.  These languages are:

















Croatian Czech
Danish Dutch

You are prompted to choose your choice of language the first time you turn the receiver on.


Under System Setup, you can change your language of choice to any of the languages listed above, you can choose your TV type, like PAL or NTSC.  in the USA, we use NTSC.  You can also take advantage of the Parental Lock option to lock a certain channel or the menus.  You can setup your time for the front panel of the receiver.  More details on this function is below.


Under channel manager, you can edit your channel list, you can rename, change it's specifications and much more.  You can also sort your channel list according to different criteria.  You can also create a favorite channel list by different categories like Movies, Sports, Etc...


The receiver comes with 100 programmable satellites and 6000 programmable TV and Radio stations.


By pressing a single button, the user has access to the full channel list and can sort the list according to satellite, network, etc...


Similar to POWER Scan, this function will scan in the TV stations, but it only scans them based on the transponder parameters ( Frequency, Symbol Rate, & Polarization) that is already programmed in the satellite receiver.



One of the most popular features of this receiver is it's Channel Backup & Recovery system.  When you setup your channel list, simply back up the list.  When and if you accidentally erase the channel list, you can simply go to Channel Recovery and bring the exact same channels back according to the way they were previously programmed.  No need to program the receiver again!


Excellent sound and picture quality.


Simply press the "info" button on the remote to display the channel parameters including Audio PID, Video PID, PCR, broadcasting transponder frequency, symbol rate and plarization.


Another useful function which is not abundant on other satellite receivers is that not only does the clock of the receiver function according to the satellite, but you can also offset the time by the exact minuites.  This is important as the satellite times are not always correct. 

Excellent installation choices under the Installation Menu.  Your options are Setup, Auto Scan, TP Scan, Factory Reset and most important the powerful POWER Scan | Blind Search Function.


Under channel manager, you can edit your channel list, you can rename, change it's specifications and much more.  You can also sort your channel list according to different criteria.  You can also create a favorite channel list by different categories like Movies, Sports, Etc...


This is where  you setup your antenna.  You have a full list of pre-programmed satellites.  You choose your LNB type and frequency here also.  You can choose your DiSEqC ports and 0/22KHz switching.  The receiver also recognizes the carrier automatically.  The receiver has DiSEqC1.2 ( Motor Control ) also which allows you to automatically turn your dish from one satellite to another.


The receiver comes with a powerful POWER Scan function with editable parameters controlled by the user.  User can set starting frequency, ending frequency, and a full range of Symbol Rate.  Also you can choose the type of stations you'd like to scan, Scrambled, FTA, or both.  You can also change the polarity to Vertical, Horizontal or Both.  Blind Search or POWER Scan allows you to find new Transponder frequencies and new channels for you.


By pressing a single button the user can check the quality and level of the signal and also can use it as a signal meter to help align the satellite dish


Similar to Auto Scan, TP scan only scans 1 Transponder that is already programmed int he receiver. 


One of the better futures is the timer on this receiver.  Simply program your VCR and Receiver to turn on at a certain time and turn off at a certain time to record your favorite shows.  Choose how often, and choose for the receiver to turn on, turn off, or change channels to a a certain station.


The Fortune receiver also offers 4 different multi-channel functions.  Click here for a video demonstration modes of channel.  This is great to still watch your programming in the center of the screen while seeing what else is on other stations.


Another great feature of the receiver is the Signal Beep Sound.  When turned on, this function beeps as you lock on to your satellite signal.  It's an excellent and useful tool to use when you can not physically look at the monitor while aligning your satellite dish.
