Yesterday i tried to get the FTA Channels in my 2201 Videocon LCD TV. Its having in built settop box. I can add the TP's but while searching no channels found. Signal strength is gud and quality is also gud. Can't able to tune.Then another option i have tried. entered the audio & video PID and tuned. that time, i can view the channel but can't stored. How can i get FTA chennels using the inbuilt STB. Any chance to change the firmware which is support for FTA?
I have another D2H stb, that is working fine with FTA channels (Tuned Dish tv freqencies and CBand channels).
On Videocon D2H only Tarang Music and NGC 3D channels is only available on FTA mode. You can't do anything on your D2H box, better use FTA receiver to watch FTA mode channels.

Your 2201 Videocon LCD TV's inbuilt Satellite Receiver software is locked for fta channels. You can only do a Video Test by entering PIDs, but Saving fta channels is disabled.
You are lucky to have FTA Videocon d2h stb. Do not tune to ST1/2 Ku-band at 88° East, a software update can lock your fta d2h stb.
Very good Vishwa, but TRAI does not take action against these companies.
Anil Khera and Saurabh Dhoot contacts may not be available easily, but d2h grievances department may reply.
Ofcourse they have no intention to unlock STBs or Satellite Receiver LCDs ;)
Anyways. Wish you Good Luck !
they are locking this because DTH receivers are available in low price comparing to FTA receivers ..
