FAQs on liberty decoders and t.linkThere is a post here that explain how this decoders works but in this post here i shall be answering frequently asked question on the two above mention decoders and the questions remains but not limited to the followings?

1. which is better between the two decoders i mean between t.link and liberty decoder

Ans: Overall t.link is better because it offers more options than liberty

2. which internet connection is more stable between t.link and liberty

Ans: it depends on the country and location you are and the gata plan you are using for example if you simply use a 3g sim for both then liberty will win the internet race with a narrow margin however if you use a faster connection like broadband or wi-fi then liberty will loose and t.link will win that is why in Nigeria people in lagos are enjoying t.link better because of the various fast networks

3. Am in Nigeria I want to use a 3g sim which one is the best because there is 3g on glo, mtn, airtel and etisalat

Ans: I dont know the reason why but MTN doesn’t work with this internet decoder so in order of stability i will advice you to use airtel – etisalat – glo may be mtn but i dont advice you to use mtn infact if only mtn has 3g in your area and you want to buy buy liberty decoder then it means you are about to waste your money.

7. Can i use liberty star t1 ecoder without internet

  29. question 1. why is it that, sometimes, sum of the stations on my Liberty decoder, goes off and never come back for days or weeks?
    Que 2. is there no way to make viewing remain stable on the liberty just like strong decoders?

    • question 1 fault from manufacturer
      question 2 you can make viewing more stable with a better internet connection… however if you connection is good enough then nothing you can do.
      question 3: use manual scan but you cannot force channels to work.

  58. hi, i need the liberty decoder urgently and you can reach me now on 2348076134719 or levelsus@yahoo.com. Contact me as soon as possible.

  59. lemmy, am using airtel on Liberty T1 decoder, but i keep getting scrambled channel. However, on few occassions when the channels come up, any interruption like power failure will mean waiting till eternity for the channels to show. atimes they wont show again till when next am lucky. pls how do i know when there’s internet connection on the decoder?

  60. Dear Lemmy,

    I just installed T-Link 900 but some of the channels highlited are showing scramble channel. what is the reason for this. Some will come and within few minutes off again. I need to know if the installer did not do it well. Secondly, is it possible that certain channels are restricted to the type of account on your decoder.

    • in sds mode only all channels highlighted in yellow will open though this is not a guarantee. some channels dont work in africa so it may be the reason besides you cant expect everything to be 100%. if you want to increase the numbers of channels then use your t.link with intenet and make sure u get a very strong internet connection.

  61. Bros, pls what is the latest price for the LIBERTY STAR T1 DECODER? I am in Lagos and would like to buy tomorrow morning (mon, 3rd Sept) if possible.

  62. SOS i just get a liberty star t1. BUT ITS ONLY WORK MOOV SIM CARD, if there is a solution to take airtel or orange sim onehelp me.


    My mail: ikantah@yahoo.fr

    • If you read my post very well you will notice that i said only use liberty with the best available sim card in your area. For instance it doesn’t work well with MTN Nigeria. So don’t worry just be happy that it is even working with one network for you. The only thing you can do is to take the decoder to a place where you have other networks like airtel e.t.c

  63. ok the 2580 code works on it too. which other codes do you know like checking subscription info and status

  64. no its a stand alone internet decoder

  65. hi lemmy i am using a hawk eh777 classic internet decoder. how do i configure the settings for airtel ng? i stay in lagos surulere

  66. Don Messi says:

    Thanks for the info Lenny. I’m in Ghana and using Liberty star. I’m using MTN, do u think its the best network to use for Liberty? I bought credit onto the sim card and i haven’t activated any internet bundle and it works fine. But it keeps saying “scrambled”. could this be because of the MTN?

    • if you are having mtn and airtel in your country and they are at par interms of speed then let me tell you this, airtel will perform better. mtn has 3g in nigeria but there 3g is rubbish. infact if you use mtn nigeria network with liberty then you have successfully wasted your money on the decoder

  67. want to know wer n ow much i can get d tlink 900. got no response to d earlier enquiry i made,so kindly respond to this,thanks

  72. Nii Adjei says:


    Am in Ghana and very interested in any of the decoders. be it Liberty Star or T-link.

    I prefer the T- Link Decoder but we don’t have Telephone line in our area since its a new site but all the mobile networks are working very well. Can i use T-Link. If YES where can get it to buy.?


    Nii Adjei,

    • like i said you can use t.link full hd decoder without internet connection but you cannot use liberty without internet.. have you checked with your local satellite dealer in ghana? if you cannot find it then you can contact me through this site’s contact page for arrangement
