supported so that the re-

ard multi-feed antennas for
up to four LNBs just as well
as with multi-focus anten-
nas for up to 16 LNBs and
with motorised antennas
using either the DiSEqC 1.2
or 1.3 protocols. Big cheers
from us for such brilliant
DiSEqC implementation!
The channel memory can
hold up to 4000 channel en-
tries and in order to fill it
up a single touch of a but-
ton takes you to the chan-
nel search menu. On the
left section of the screen
there is a list of all avail-
able satellites for selection
(several entries can select-
ed at once), while the right-
hand section shows various
search modes and options
such as free-to-air chan-
nels only, radio or TV only,
network search mode, and
so on.
Once you have made all
relevant settings the green
function key activates the
automatic signal search. We
selected HOTBIRD 13° East
for our test and the Jiuzhou
DTS6695 took slightly more
than eight minutes to scan
the entire frequency range.
The DVB-T scan was com-
pleted in less than a minute.
If you need to add indi-
vidual channels at a later
stage you should perform
a manual search, which is
available for both DVB-T and
DVB-S/S2. In satellite mode
the Jiuzhou box even al-
lows manual PID input. The
modulation type is always
detected automatically by
the receiver. A search on
one of the major European
satellite platforms may eas-
ily yield 1000 or even more
channel entries, so organis-
ing and managing all those
channels is of the essence.
Luckily, the channel edi-
tor of the DTS6695 is your
Obviously the new Jiuzhou
box makes sure users in
many countries can ‘under-
stand’ its on-screen display,
and the choice of menu lan-
guages goes far beyond the
classics such as English,
French and German. Speak-
ers of Spanish, Italian, Pol-
ish, Russian, Hungarian,
Czech, Dutch and Romanian
will be happy to learn that
‘their’ language is available
as well. The selection of lan-
guages also goes to show
that the DTS6695 is geared
towards the European mar-
ket. The list of pre-set coun-
tries for DVB-T reception
underpins that impression
as it only includes European
Using the HDMI output
the video signal can be pro-
cessed in 576p, 720p and
1080i and we cannot praise
highly enough a dedicated
button on the remote to
switch between these set-
tings on the fly, without hav-
ing to go through a menu.
Now that the DTS6695 has
become a perfect match for
our TV, we proceed to the
next stage and introduce it
to our reception equipment
high up on the roof. Jiuzhou
ships its new box with a
list of 64 pre-stored Euro-
pean satellite positions, all
of which come with suitably
current transponder data.
As far as LOF’s are con-
cerned, the Jiuzhou receiver
offers a range of pre-set os-
cillator frequencies for the C
and Ku bands, as well as a
manual option for those out-
of-the-ordinary settings.
