Qsat 2013 GPRS DST* satellite receiver [The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

I know many people would have been expecting this from me, well as much as i apologize that its coming a bit late, I assure ll my fans that you are about to get a revelation about the aforementioned decoder that you cannot get anywhere else. For a start i have been studying this receiver for the past three and a half months and am about to share with you all you need to know about Qsat. As at the time of writing this, we now have qsat g16 and g13. G16 is the one with a very ugly and heavy built and an antenna while g13 is light and without antenna, both have their pro and cons but time will not permit me to talk about this.

2 The decoder is one of the most stable iks decoder currently opening Dst* channels

3. you can utilize its inbulit account by pluging in your diret usb 3g modem

4. It supports external dongles, though its not required(the external dongle sometimes hangs on the decoder)

5. It come pre-loaded with two hidden adult channels “youporn and redtube

6. It has other internet tv and iptv embedded.


  • I personally spoke with one of their sales representative on the future prospectt of qsat in Africa, most especially, if they are going to offer software support and account renewal after the inbuilt account must have expired. and i got the following reply “All we want for now is to sell as many qsat products as possible, the manufacturers can not say if they will renew accounts or not in the future” this statement is capable of many interpretations which i will leave for you to decide.
  • Qsat generally consumes more of your airtime when used with a pay as you go sim card than any other dongle i have ever used. Please use a data bundle or your modem
  • If you can only boast of an edge network in your area (esp MTN Nigeria edge) you will suffer in the hands of qsat if you use a direct sim card
  • less features and options under satellite menu.


The design of the recommend model of qsat which is the g16 has the ugliest build i have every gazed upon in years.

The graphical user interface as a whole is also a let down with obscure EPG function.


  1. If you buy it new, insert an active sim ever before you power on the decoder
  2. If and only if your qsat stop working before its expiry time, navigate to  Menu>>setting>>Xcam setup>>AvatarcamHD>>press the green button to reactivate your code
  3. If you want to check your expiry date: Menu>>setting>>Xcam setup>>AvatarcamHD>>press the red button
  4. to enable the two adult channels In the menu>>MultiMedia→Network while you are here, quickly press play + 1513 on your remote
  5. If your Xcam setup is missing navigate to menu>>Setting>> press OK button then enter password “1512”


It is not in me to force products on anybody, but you are to decide on your own based on your income. Besides i have written a comprehensive guide on how to choose rationally. This article is more of an information or enlightenment not a campaign or propaganda.

  4. Aliyu Isa says:

    Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. Does that mean it comes by default with two sets of accounts? Iks and avatarcam accounts?

  5. Thanks Lemmy. Its an incredible decoder but with poor graphics like u rightly noted. Its only fine in HD. Pls Lemmy, do u have any idea on what the usb/card, ota n ftp ugrades will do? Again, my usb 3g modem is not working direct. Pls how is it done?

    • you shouldn’t plugin your sim card and your 3g modem simultaneously, if you want to use modem, remove sim card, and if you want to use sim card, remove modem the select 3g under menu>>setting>>ethernetconfig

  6. Price for this and do i need bigger dish for it?

  8. Dongle_User says:

  14. I’ve been using Q-Sat Q13G for about 3 days now and my experience with it is fantastic. It opens all encrypted channels with negligible freezes. Though I’m yet to find how to access youporn and redtube on it, I tried pressing 1513 in quick succession in setting>multimedia>network but still not showing them. Oga Lemmy, your assistance is needed here, I appreciate your big effort.

  15. Hi Lemmy. pls, after installing dat software upgrade to watch IPTV channels, I don’t see info on channels (.e., EPG) again. what can I do pls? Thnx for all your information update

  16. I tried to use loop out on q13g to connect to another decoder but its signal indicator turns red and it shows no signal. Please lemmy, is there any setting I should do before using loop out on it? I appreciate your effort and genius as always.

    • i have told you, qsat is not as strong as its specification.. just use it to watch your dst* channels and the inbuilt internet tv.. please don’t do things that may damage aany hardware component of your device because you may have problems replacing them.

  17. OK! as long as its opening channels flawlessly, I’ll be happy with it

  20. aguda abiodun says:

  21. I also spoke with one of their sales managers and she said after the one year they will charge 8usd for a month. Don’t know how true is that.

    • @ken it is working, you must be within the multimedia menu before you can enable the channels, and you must have strong internet connection before u can watch the channels

    pls my qsat is showing no signal, wat should i do?

  157. Hi I’m using q11 and has not been working all day i can not access the activation code settings area. Pls what Do i do?

  158. Nice site. Help with these please if you can

    1. HD channels not working recently, is that just me or universal? (I may have tampered with it though, for reasons outlined below)

    2. Even when HD is available it does some ghosting

    Noticeable only on the football HD channels though. Obviously very annoying, as the whole purpose of this endeavor was to get access to HD at an affordable rate. Any tips on how to correct this (without moving the dish ie)? For instance, in that article they say one could perhaps fix it by focusing/limiting some frequency or the other, but I’m no pro so I don’t know what they’re on about. Also, my setup allows for joytv, could this be part of the problem (by allowing for extra frequencies?).

    3. Is there anywhere one can find the various settings etc for the ds*v setup?


  159. daniel okyere says:

      • Hello Lemmy,
        Thanks for your prompt response. I noticed I had just Atra 1G satellite. I added Eulesat Satellite and I can now receive the HD channels.
        But like you rightly said only Discovery Showcase works on HD. Other HD channels don’t work.
        Thanks again. Let’s hope the HD channels come back soon.
        Meanwhile do you have a contact where I can refer my friends who are interested in buying the decoders or dongles as the person I bought from is no longer in that line of business

  202. my name is gilbert mogambi osoro. i am from kenya in east africa. i am a keen reader of your blog. i have benefitted greatly from your advise. The dst* dongles are a new phenomena here in kenya. I bought AZsky from alibaba some 3 months agos. My efforts to receive the Dst* channels ,JSC sports were futile. i paid subscription for one year . My anaysis reveals that the equipment does not get the GPRS since its indicates there is no data signal.(lights red) . I read in your blog that with the use of an RJ 45 port with a wireles 3g modern the gadget will work. kindly advise.

    • @Oluwalogbon hd channels are high definition channels, they have better picture and sound quality than SD channels.
      qsat works with dst* and nilesat. you will use different dish for different satellites. Your local installer will explain better to you

    • HD channels are High definition channels, SD channels are standard definition channels.
      Example of hd channels on dstv frequency are: SS3HD, DISHD, MNEPHD..

  244. Hi Morgan? compliments. pls SS3 gives me a message bad signal while SS3NI is now scrambled. both these channels were working at some point even as at two days ago. Kindly advice on what to do.

  245. please which brand of 3g modem is auto detected by the qsat q13g. This is because i have vodafone k4201 modem as well as huawei e173 but when you insert and try to link it, it tells you ‘No Dongle Device’. I have even set the APN and other settings manually but still no luck. Please help.

    • @kwabena no dongle device found simply means no active sim card inside your modem. i am using huawei e173 myself

      • Thanks for your quick response. But I have an active sim card inside the modem. I have MTN, Glo, Vodafone, Tigo and Airtel sim cards but none of them works. I even have data bundles on all the sim cards. If I use Glo Modem i.e ZTE modem it works great but the decoder restarts every 30 mins or so.

  246. Lemmy! thanks for that.

  247. Hello lemmy please my q-sat q11g is not working is showing scramble for like 3days please what will i do to it, i have try all the sim card still the same issue

    If i delete the keys will it load new keys?
    Kindly advice

    • @fred, please don’t do anything that will permanently disable your qsat. The problem is from qsat server and it affects just few of qsat decoders out there. It will be resolved in due course

  251. Hi Lemmy, Compliment of the season, Qsat has been scrambvled since yesterday, I have tried all the sims available. Meanwhile my router is a swift 4g lte provided my swift network in Nigeria. Though it shows network connection success when connected via the LAN network, the channels are still scrambled. Please advice.

    • @joe, the best thing for you t do is to wait untill the problem is resolved by qsat team. However if you want immediate account on the way forward or better still if you can’t wait, please contact me via email

  252. Pls my Q sat is not working for some days now..pls is it nationwide or d problem is frm my decoder my location is Ikot Ekpene

  253. Pls lemmy, my qast q11g has stopped working for two days now. I did factory reset and the necessary settings and it is still the same. Menwhile it displays “network connection success” but shows scramble channel. What could be wrong with my decorder? Or it’s general problem?

  254. Boss since yesterday, my qsat 13 is not working. What is happening is that , both the 3g and the gprs will activate the account number but it will not unscramble the channels. I’m using mtn Ghana. Glo Ghana.airtel Ghana.second which channel numbers are the adult channels in the iptv. Thank you.

  255. As at the time i was leaving the house to work my qsat was completely off and i suspect dstv is
    trying block it. Anyone experiencing it, because i have tried all the sim cards in africa.

  256. Boss my qsat 13g is not working any info.

  257. gsat is not working and looks like its been blocked by dstv. I have used all the sim cards

  258. @Lemmy Morgan. Season greetings to u bro. my q11g sat stopped working since yesterday during the Arsenal-WH, and internet connect just fine enough but with scramble channels, i have changed all sim available including modem and wireless connection but noting yet. pls advise accordingly !

  260. @ lemmy, i have the same problem with maze, i have change sims but still same issue.
    any oda advice. i have a q11g

    • @pepper for a reason i can’t really categorize, some qsat (especially those whose avatacam codes start with 54 or 56 has been offline since yesterday) this coud be a server problems or whatever. I will advice you not to do anything rash other than changing sim cards or switching from direct sim card to 3g modem until the issue is addressed by qsat. If however you are impatient to wait till its resolved, you can contact me through my email for further action

  261. As at this moment my q sat Q11G has refused to work, out of about five users it is only one person that reported his own nt workin, I hv changed different sims to no avail, do I now consider it hs stopped working and deactivate ( the scam thing)? If I should deactivate will all my settings remain? Tanx

  262. Goodday lemmy…I need ur.assistance.i just.installed a qsat 13g via a proxy seller but all channels remain scrambled except the one without the dollar sign.i.e dish channel and cctv.
    kindly avail me the oportunity of ur brilliancebin tackling this issue.thanks

    • @max, you need to use either a sim with active data bundle directly inside your qsat or use an active sim inside a 3g modem with qsat.
      If you use a sim directly, you must select GPRS under Settings>>ethernet config (then go back and select your network provider under config and mark the check box named Auto link)
      If you are using a 3g modem, select 3g under ethernet config

  263. just got a qsat 13g n it is saying msg no signal…pls wat could d problem b

    3) Despite having enough data thereafter, i cant open some channels as it keeps saying, scramble channels for channels like SS3 and some others
    4) it freezes intermittently. it would show picture for 3 mins and freez for 1min on all channels

    5) i was told that the box has been upgraded with the l;atest firmware

    what could be the problem

    Thank you

    • the mistake you made is for not converting your #100 to mb. please search for my post on how to optimize data consumption of dongles. qsat consumes the highest data of all the products out there

  283. @Lemmy, my new Qsat hangs dst. channels a lot and when it start hanging, those free channels will be showing. I have used too many Sim card, yet it persist. what could be the problem? the signal quality is 64, could it be the problem? thanks a lot

  284. @Lemmy, is that the last option? the same QSat decode work fine with sim card in my office, but when carry to home it start the hanging. can signal quality affect it? thanks lemmy

  285. Mr. Lemmy, I greet u, pls since after d upgrade my Q11G keeps hanging and scrambled, I. Have switched between 3G and GPRS trying both mtn and etisalat all same result, what do u think. Must have caused this? Thanks

  286. I don’t understand what you just said. the SS channels hangs when there is a live match. what could be the problem?

  287. Thanks lemmy what about the issue of hanging and freezing every 3 minutes. is it normal?

    also why is ss3 not showing


  288. Please oga lemmy, my Qsat decoder keeps freezing, what can I do about it?

  289. Thank you, also sometimes it doesn’t come up. And i use a modem, like right now. Is it from their end? Also my own decoder puts my country as Egypt at the Ethernet setting

  290. thks lemmy.

    does it mean i have to be buying N1000 for 260 mb monthly for etisalat?

  291. Pls which one of the decoder perform better now Xman G8 or QStat Q11

  292. morng all.
    qsat hasn’t worked today at my end. since 7am

  293. pls sir my q- sat is freezing wat is the problem

  294. hello, i got my qsat Q11g dec 2013 and since then, i have never enjoyed watching dst* channels on it.
    Its either scramble channel or the program freeze while watching..
    How can i fix this problem ?

    I use my LAN cable on it while Dst* channals dont show but i get to view other IPTV channels

  295. Hi lemmy. My q sat 11g has not been opening any channels since yesterday save for DISCW and some italian channels. What can I do

  296. Dear Lemmy,
    Having followed your responses here, I am convinced of your expertise to attend to many problems associated with qsat. All the channels in my qsat is showing scrambled channel. I currently have about N4000 worth of credit in my airtel sim. I can watch the redtube and youporn but cant watch any of the normal channels. Pls, what should I do.

    Thank you

  297. Please will updating my q sat solve the freezing problems?

  298. hi lemmy please is itnpossible to carryout a decoder to decoder upgrade or downgrade with qsat q11 my avarter code starts with 58 and after upgrading the performance somewhat became worse so was wondering if its possible to get another q11 that has not been upgraded and use it to downgrade mine thanks alot

    • @seun, don’t deceive yourself. the poor performance is from qsat not the software. view all previous comments you will see several ppl who did not upgarde at all and yet are having poor performance

  299. Same here, all channels are scrambbled. Only African magic Hausa showing. I use a q13g decoder and it’s the same with all networks

  300. Thanks a lot Lemmy for the prompt response I appreciate it guess we just have to wait only mnet series zone opens on mine without freezing

  301. Oluwaseun says:

    Oga Lemmy happy new year. Do you mean the channels are now completely back, including the SS Channels. Cos as at this morning I could only get MShow, SZone, SET A, DTV, DAYSTAR, TRAP SPORTS, and the FTA channels.

  302. only CNBCchannel which is working on my Q-qat decorder .please….what is the problem

  303. Bros Lemmy, thanks for being of help to so many, I myself need serious help, my QSAT is frustrating me, all channels are scrambled for past 3 days, my avatarcam is 57xxxx. I have tried different sims. Please help! It’s frustrating.

  304. Hi Lemmy
    Since the 2nd January my Qsat channels have not been working, i can see the free channels, i have an active orange sim, when it was installed on the 28 December 2013 it was working great, what is going on now? my avatarcam starts with 57 and it expires November 2014

  305. Oluwaseun says:

    Mr Morgan thanks for your endurance and patience. The channels are back as at the time of sending this message.

  306. Pls how do I check my decoder to know which avatacam code is carrying. Thanks.

  307. Oga lemmy please I need your advice on this issue. Someone told me dreambox family HD comes with german server with 2yrs account inside is better than azsky G6 HD. Please put me thru in this area before buying it. So that I wont waste my money. Thanks

  308. Oga lemmy please I need your advice on this issue. Someone told me dreambox family HD comes with german server with 2yrs account is better than azsky G6 HD. Please put me thru in this area before buying it. So that I wont waste my money. Thanks

  310. @nii type of accounts used by iks decoders

  311. Thanks very much lemmy
    is there a way that dst* can scramble only ss channels on qsat? Or its basically a Qsat server problem? I ask because all the channels are back with the exception of ss channels.
    Your response to questions on this thread is really amazing.in fact it really calmed my nerves as am a new user of the dongle

  312. Thanks Lemmy.
    I am very grateful

  313. haizenburg says:

  327. Ken Ellah says:

    Hi Lemmy, is this a usual occurrence that should some channels should go off, or is it that DST* is trying to scramble the whole channels, I use QSAT 13G decoder, an some channels like Africa Magic and SS are not working. I really need to know so as to know whether to wait or to dispose of the stuff./ Thank you so much for your advice.

    • @ken ellah it is server problems from qsat not dsthieves trying to block anything. Dsthieves only blocked hd channels successfully(though it could be temporarily)

  334. Hi Lemmy, pls extend ur usual kind gesture to me. I use q13g and after the upgrade which i did because my SS werent showing remained the same. At a time only SS3 wasnt showing but later other SS more more followed. I did factory reset and more channels followed. At a time the channels came as Service xxx. I was told it was due to signal (which was around 32 on EUTELSAT 36A, 36/XXX36 0E). I boosted the signal to 50 but after several scans selecting several sats nothing is found. Transponder list, Radio, TV channels all returning nothing. i have even tried swapping the LNB but the same result. The problem started about a week ago.Please help.

  405. Hi lemmy
    Please I hear cccam is more stable than avatar can. Would you recommend cccam for me? is it compatible with Qsat? please help

    • @nii, no account is more stable than the other, it depends on the price and maintenance of the server. cccam it four times more expensive than avatarcam codes so you should expect slight stability from t

  406. Hi, Lemmy. God bless you for the time taken to reply.
    i have a q11g. The AvatarCamHD no is 56**. it was taken for an upgrade and its showed for just few days. i can see a file under ftp upgrade. should i upgrade it or what can i do to make it work.

  431. QSAT is a mess cant cope with this on and off.
    The guys are fraud stars, they cant manage the
    no of users on their servers and they keep selling the
    maggot QSAT and making vain promise that it will soon be
    on after going off. This is bull shit will rather pay my dstv premium
    subsription and enjoy my SS channels no to missing interesting P League
    and La liga matches and other favorites. Qsat is a failure. Thats my opinion
    you are entitled to yours.
    Meanwhile thanks lemmy for your effort , i hope you are getting your own
    gbem for all this effort.
