Specifications and features

The one feature which is a great boost for those wanting to see the French channels in other rooms, as well as the room where the box is installed, is that the Wisi has an on-board modulator. That is to say it can put the picture signal on an aerial cable link to the second room.On a recent installation the modulator was adjusted to Uk tv standards "PAL I" and it then tuned in on a Philips UK tv just fine.

If you want the Wisi receiver cabling to an existing aerial distribution system, this can be arranged. Don't forget to ask me before the day of installation though!

Overall the Wisi product was well made, the remote responsive and the picture quality very good on both scart output and modulator outputs.

The card should be inserted with the contacts upwards, the card slot is on the left and not in a flap unlike other Fransat boxes.

Tuning Fransat satellite is very simple and automatic, the box software just picks out the Fransat frequencies and tunes very quickly. You can also choose recherche globale if you need to tune more of the french free channels or the other ( non French ) channels on the satellite.

The favourites list feature is a little disappointing, despite the instructions saying that multiple lists can be created, I could not find the ICON onscreen to do this, several installations have been achieved with the Wisi box but non had the necessary icon displayed so I must assume it is a mistake in the book. However, with careful choice of WHEN to store each favourite channel, a satisfactory arrangement of channels can be stored in the single available favourite list..

Fortunately the receiver does a good job of positioning the channels anyway with TF1 at the top of the list followed by France 2 , etc.

After installing the receiver searches for software updates and prompts you to install, which takes about 5 minutes.

Picture quality was very fair and over the course of the last 2 years installing these, no faults have been reported at all.
