Nokia MediaMaster 9800 S

Known to everyone: the Nokia 9800 is one of the first digital satellite receivers and since it is still often used at home and it still can be bought in stores we will describe it a little more.
By its looks it is equal to the newer model 9902 S with the difference that it is held in black. On the right side there is a LCD display that shows the number of the program and other operational information. When the Nokia 9800 is turned on the display will show details about the receiver, software version and other. When the receiver is turned off it shows the time.
On the left there is a lid that hides the viaccess card slot and only one CI-slot for additional modules. There is also a button for using the basic functions of the receiver in case you loose the remote control.

On the backside there are the basic connectors- LNB input, apparently ther is no LNB out as well as on the 9902 S. There are RF connectors for the classic connection to a TV,VCR via a coaxial cable. There are two scart slots that should be used instead of the RF connectors, since they give better sound and picture quality. Also there can be found cynch audio outs, a digital audio line out for the connection to a amplifier or a stereo and there is also a RS 232 port for the connection to a PC, which is meant for the installing of upgraded software, but therefore there is also the option downloading the software from satellites- Astra 1, Hot Bird and Sirius. There is also a connection for the modem. Thatís it. Not very much but it is what it is.

The remote control is similar to the one of the 9902 S, except for the fact that it is black. It suits the hand very well and it serves for handling all functions. It is very sad that youíll have to wait to see something happen after you push a button, but that I so because of the slow software of the Nokia 9800 S.
Thanks to the well done menu the installation is very easy. You have the option of receiving programs of one satellite, two or more satellite if you use the DiSEqC 1.0 switch or the DiSEqC 1.2 protocol in addition to the use of a compatible motor. Older software versions sometimes make trouble with the installation of a motorized antenna.
After the welcome menu you have to enter the basic parameters, choose a satellite and start searching for programs. The program search is very fast and lasts about five minutes for Astra 1 at 19.2°E. after you have finished the search you can start to adjust the program list- delete, move, rename or create favorite lists. The moving and adjusting of programs isnít done that well since it is very slow.
The main advantage of this receiver is the built-in viaccess module so that you can use any viacces card without a problem. Another problem is that there is only one viaccess card-slot since there are many providers emitting in viaccess. Also a great problem is the fact that there is only on CI-slot so that you will have to please yourself with just one additional decoding system, otherwise you will constantly have to stand up and change modules. This is very dull and inconvenient especially since the 9800 S likes to freeze at this operations. Therefore you are best advised to unplug the receiver before changing the modules and cards.
The CI-slots is compatible with all available modules: seca, viaccess, irdeto, conax, nagravision, cryptoworks and any other future system.

The Nokia 9800 S is still a very popular receiver that despite its lacks has many fans. The biggest lacks are the often freezing and the slowness, therefore you will have to unplug the receiver often. Also it is for todayís standard unacceptable that there is only one card slot and only one CI-slot.
Non the less the Nokia 9800 S will display a perfect picture and deliver perfect sound under any circumstances.
