IDL 400s

The airscreen Server™ is a fully compliant and certified SAT>IP Server with 4 tuners. The airscreen Server™ can receive up to 4 transponders and stream selected SD/HD TV & Radio programs to 4 Client devices over LAN/WLAN allowing users to watch live satellite TV on their tablets, smart phones, smart TVs, game consoles and connected video player devices with compatible software/application. The airscreen Server™ streams out programs that were selected by the SAT>IP Clients and maintains encryption (for pay-TV channels) intact. The airscreen Server™ features a DLNA/UPnP-compatible Server mode that allows DLNA/UPnP Client devices and applications (that are not SAT>IP compatible Clients) such as DLNA-compatible TVs or Media Players to access the Live satellite TV and Radio streams over the LAN/WLAN too. DLNA/UPnP Clients access and navigate through live TV programs using a channel list provided by the airscreen Server™. The channel list can be edited/exported/imported through the device’s configuration and management menus which are accessible over a simple and intuitive web interface.


Through its built in DLNA/UPnP compatible server, the airscreen Server™ will soon be able to turn a connected USB drive into a network media share for the Client devices to access around the home or set as a local network PVR. The airscreen Server™ can be connected to the home LAN/WLAN router/access point over its Ethernet port via an Ethernet cable or through a HomePlug AV or PLC (Ethernet over power line) adaptors.


The airscreen Server™ was designed to support Unicable II™ LNBs and Multiswitches - an essential component of the Sat>IP eco-system - providing the most elegant and cost effective single cable distribution solution*. Using Unicable II™ LNB or Multiswitch enables a quick and simple upgrade of existing installations, allowing to install one or multiple airscreen Servers™ using an existing single coax drop from the dish antenna into the house/building. Unicable II™ LNBs and Multiswitches provide digital Channel Stacking of up to 32 user bands based on the latest full-band capture technology and the EN50607 standard.


The development of the SAT>IP protocol was led by SES-Astra for its customers who are seeking to benefit from the increasing popularity of tablet and smart phone devices and address the change in how viewers consume their TV content and their ultimate demand for TV anywhere on any screen. airscreen Server™ with DVB-C and DVB-T front ends are available as well.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the password to access the web interface?
By default the password is set to �admin�
Which kinds of LNBs are supported?
The airscreen server support a large range of LNBs. By default it is configured to work with a universal LNB, we strongly recommend a Quad LNB, to supply all 4 tuner inputs with an independent signal. Instead of a Quad LNB you can also use four multi switch outputs. In addition the airscreen server can be configured to work with a Quattro LNB or any Unicable LNB or multi switch. Via the web interface the Unicable frequencies and the LOF frequencies can be set.
Which files systems are supported on an external hard disk drive?
The following file systems are supported: FAT16, FAT32, EXT2, EXT3
What is the difference between DLNA and SAT2IP?
The main feature for our airscreen server is the SAT2IP function. This is a new protocol which defines the conversion from a satellite to an IP signal. This enables devices such as a PC or a tablet to behave like a real satellite receiver. Perform channel search, plan recordings, display EPG, subtitles and teletext, depending on the client and the client software. In addition we offer DLNA functionality, which increases the compatibility with many TV sets, game consoles and other DLNA clients. The limitation is, that through DLNA there will be only Video and Audio and no features such as EPG or HbbTV.
How to use a M3U list?
By using an M3U list, not SAT2IP compatible devices can be enabled to use Inverto airscreen server. Many software clients like for example VLC Player and XMBC are able to load M3U lists in order to zap and display TV channels. To access the M3U list, use the address which is displayed on the airscreen web interface. http://:8080/m3u Alternative you may want to use the IP-address to access the M3U list: http://:8080/m3u More M3U lists then the default list can be downloaded at
My airscreen server does not connect to my local network.
  • Check you LAN cable and make sure it is connected to the right port on your router.
  • You need to make sure that DHCP is activated on your local network, in this way the airscreen server will get his IP address autocratically.
The picture is stuttering and I see many drop outs.
  • Make sure your connection is fast enough. The cabling between our airscreen server and the router should be 1Gbit/s and the Wi-Fi standard for connected clients should be at least 802.11n (150Mbit/s).
  • Check your satellite signal and the coaxial cable.
My airscreen server can not be turned on, there is no power.
  • Check if the power cord is properly connected to the socket and the receiver.
  • Make sure that the main switch on the back of the box is switched on.
