Even though the new AB-
COM receiver runs using the
Xbox Media Center as the
operating system, at first
glance it doesn‘t look any dif-
ferent than any other stand-
ard receiver.
As usual, a push of the OK
button opens the channel
list that can be refined with
another push of a button to
show only channels from in-
dividual satellites, Favorites
lists or those that are en-
crypted. It‘s also just as easy
to sort the list alphabetical-
ly and if desired, all the HD
channels can be moved to
the top of the list.
If this new receiver is used
with a motorized antenna,
after a channel scan the
channel list will undoubtedly
be stuffed with hundreds if
not thousands of channels.
That would mean it‘d be time
to bring a little organization
to the list.
Thanks to the cleverly de-
signed menu, all you need
to do push the ‚i‘ button on
the remote control to access
a variety of channel editing
tools such as deleting, mov-
ing, renaming or locking with
a PIN code.
We also liked that the re-
ceiver blends in a functional
description of each of the
buttons so that user will al-
ways know what each button
