In order to access the programs below, you need to ensure that you are eligible for VAST. To check for eligibility, complete the following steps:
For those of you living in any state other than WA, the channels available via the VAST service are:
VAST viewers will be able to receive all ABC digital television services including those from other states.
VAST viewers will be able to receive all SBS digital television services including those from other states.
Regional news feeds are also available (see channel 4 on VAST). These news feeds are broadcast at various times throughout the evening. This enables the viewer to catch up on local news as well as national news from the commercial and public broadcast providers.
For those of you living in WA, all of the ABC and SBS channels will be available to you also. However, instead of receiving the commercial channels Seven Central, Imparja and Ten, you will receive Prime and Win. See below:
Our systems are professionally packed and shipped with transit insurance for peace of mind. We use Australia Post and Startrack Express for Australia wide delivery to ANY address. We offer a full 12 month warranty on all of our products.
Altech UEC have released an upgrade pack that enables the DSD4121 satellite decoder to record your favourite shows direct to a hard drive thus making it a personal video recorder (PVR) - requires an external harddrive or flash drive (not included). The upgrade pack includes a new design PVR remote control with serial number to enable recording to an external drive. Keep in mind that this decoder, being a single tuner, can only record one program at a time (whichever program the decoder is set to). You cannot record a program while watching another. You can however watch a recorded program while recording another channel so this is useful. Of course, full PVR functions such as rewind, fast forward, pause etc are standard. If you'd like this PVR option, please choose it from the option box above where the 'Add to cart' button is. We also have available, 32GB flash drives so you can record hours and hours of shows direct to the drive. Again, if you'd like one of these brand name, quality drives, choose it from the options above as well.
Choose roof type mount from the drop down selection box above.
NT and WA buyers please note: Due to the very expensive charges we incur in shipping large items like dishes and kits to NT or WA, you are now required to choose the delivery state above when ordering. We NEVER profit from freight and in many cases we lose. This extra charge only applies to dishes and dish kits. Thank you for your understanding.

Just a note to say thanks for the satellite kit. The reception is absolutely brilliant.
You may get some more orders from this area, a couple of friends are keen to see how I got on and I’ve also mentioned it to our rural postman. We are in one of the last areas to be turned off so people will most likely wait till after December when the commercial stations become available. The TV people in this area seem to be unaware of the free to air satellite system and simply say that you need a new aerial or coax etc.
I also found it easy to tweek the dish using the satellite finder (I didn’t have someone to watch the TV). To find the satellite was easy, because they are almost due north they all have the same elevation, so I found one using the info you gave me, locked the vertical and panned the dish till I got the right one (no 4).
To tweek the dish using the satellite finder, after finding the satellite I simply turned the knob to the left till the needle showed about a quarter and I found that I barely touched the dish and the needle moved, so I moved the dish till the needle started to drop back, then locked where the needle showed the highest reading, locked the horizontal and repeated the process for the vertical. When I checked Menu on ‘Advanced-Signal’ I got Signal Strength of 83% and Quality of 42.
Thanks again for a brilliant product.
Hope I can steer some more sales your way.
