Very popular HD model, with familiar Technomate menu system and layout All at a great price

First a warning! Despite its title being TM5502HDci+ it is NOT ci+ compatible, technomate were just using this terminology before everyone else.


The TM5502HD gives a great picture in both HD and SD

Like its sisters 5302 5402 this model has the useful ability to store your channel tuning and settings on a USB memory stick .

Tuning was very quick for the auto search functions, not so fast with blind scan, but to be expected and the receiver was very thorough, not leaving any channels out on a search.

Storing and putting channels into a favourite group was easy and will be familiar to anyone having a technomate receiver in the last few years, the menu system has remained very similar for years, with extensions of course for new functions.

For 'tinkerers', there is software for the newcamd and ccam functions available on 3rd party websites,

It handled motorised dish and multi satellite dishes up to 4 LNBs via diseqc switch, without any hesitation. Although it is a few pounds more than the Icecrypt and other new HD products, with its superb backup from Technomate uk - available on the phone!!


With the latest software loaded, the multicrypt is capable of handling Conax, Viaccess, Iredeto and Cryptoworks cards. recommended!
