Review Hyundai HSS-760A

NEW from HYUNDAI -- the HSS760A offers fast Power Blindscanning and friendly features

Korean Hyundai Digital Technology has just released an interesting new receiver onto the market in New Zealand and Germany.
Design, construction and assembly are of a high standard, as expected of receivers manufactured in Korea.
Fast performance is due to an ALI microprocessor running at 216 MHz (much faster than the earlier STi-5518 80 MHz microprocessor still used in many receivers, or the newer Conexant Brazos 133 MHz microprocessor).
A complete Power BlindScan of Ku transponder frequency ranges on any of 8 satellites with footprints covering New Zealand was completed within 70 seconds, extraordinarily fast.  Auto scan and Transponder scan of pre-entered transponders is also very fast, and the majority of recent transponders on Satellites covering the Pacific area are already programmed.
Lowest symbol rate that I scanned from NZ footprints was 3,070 SR. 
Specification is for Symbol Rates to be handled between 1 and 45 Msps, with storage of up to 4,000 channels.
Menu screens are very well designed, with all options easily accessible. 
The Users Manual is written in clear English.
The remote control has 6 coloured Hot-keys to choose options on most menus.  These coloured buttons also default to Teletext, Live picture Zoom (with steerable window) up to 16x, Multi-Picture preview (of 9 channels on the current transponder), Favourites channel group, screen size Ratio, Subtitles (TTX or Standard).

Other function buttons include Electronic Programme Guide, Sleep (preset turn-off), Timer (power on/off), TV/Radio, Auxiliary SCART in/out, Pause picture, Info (shows all parameters of currently viewed channel).

Satellite antenna setup allows for different LNB settings for each satellite, 22k switching, DISEqC switching of up to 16 ports, positioner control by DISEqC 1.0, 1.2 or USALS (Universal Satellite Automatic Location System).

DISEqC 1.2 Positioner control options are User, Go to X, Installer (slow rotation over about 30 degrees), and Advance.

USALS location appears to work correctly with Northern Hemisphere Motec positioners if your Local South Latitude is entered as North.

Sorting and editing of channel information and creation of Favourites channel lists is easily done, using clear menus and Hot-keys.

The Info button on the remote control displays a separate screen-full of information about each selected channel, and signal strength and quality meters.

The Extended Electronic Programme Guide will display any programme information transmitted, with detailed guides for 7 days ahead (if available).

You can Zoom a portion of the live picture up to 16x magnification, and choose the viewed area.

A Multi Picture option will display simultaneous pictures from up to 9 channels on any transponder.

The TV SCART socket allows viewing of Composite CVBS, S-video or high quality RGB video with stereo audio. 

Composite Video and Audio L/R outputs are also provided from RCA Cinch sockets.  Dolby Digital SPDIF audio out is available.
The switcheable auxiliary SCART socket allows A/V or RGB/Audio from another device to be fed through to the TV output SCART socket. 

It appears that I may have to provide a 12 volts switching signal to pass the Composite Video signal through a SCART adaptor from my other receiver.
There is an option to import SatcoDX auto programming data by RS232 cable from a computer download.
One of the Tools is a Satellite Guide, intended to calculate any satellite bearing and elevation, from the Longitude and your location Latitude and Longitude. 
This is intended for Northern hemisphere locations, and does work with 180 degrees added to the calculated bearing, but needs to be redesigned to input universal N/S and E/W locations. 
Calculations are fairly close to those provided by the useful Satellite Antenna Alignment programme available from www.al-soft.com, which I can recommend.
Currently this is a FTA receiver, but there is a possibility that a Softcam could be included in a later Firmware update, and a CAM-slot version may eventually be available for the German market.
My impressions after the first 10 days of using the new Hyundai HSS-760A Satellite TV receiver, are that it has ideal features and ease of use for my home living area as part of a television and home entertainment setup.
When the 18+ Freeview channels become available on Optus D1, I can see this receiver becoming a very popular choice in New Zealand.
I am continuing to use this Hyundai receiver in conjunction with my previous satellite TV receiver, the Korean Maxplus HTS-9300+ marketed by Hyundai's Hubtech subsidiary company, because the Maxplus has Softcam and subscriber card capability.
I feed the RGB video and stereo audio through a SCART cable to a Philips HDRW720 HDD/DVD recorder, and then the  output of the DVD recorder through another SCART cable to a Goodmans GTV17WLCD LCD TV receiver (Fujitsu 1280 x 768 widescreen panel).


The RGB picture quality is excellent, and the menus and remote buttons appear to have been carefully designed for ease of use.


I can find little to criticise in this receiver, a good quality product designed and made in Korea by a reputable company with over 10 years experience in manufacturing a wide range of receivers. 

Extremely good value at a likely market price of under $NZ250, for a reliable receiver that will still be working when the thousands of Chinese clones and pirate replicas have died.
