Coolsat 8000 and the S2 channels
Today I realigned my FTA dish and got great results on all the satellites. Most of the quality signals are between 95 to 99%.
I am having trouble getting the DVB-S2 frequencies to come in. For example, while on G14 (125W) I can successfully scan in all the PBS channels, including the HD channels.
When I program the CS 8000 to scan the S2 frequencies, no luck. I don't even get the quality signal at all. I used the info that The List offers. No dice.
I thought the CS 8000 does the S2 as well.
What am I doing wrong?

I too also had problems getting S2 when i first put up my 6 ft setup.I dont if this is the case with the larger dishes but you need to be aimed just about exactly on the center of the satellite you want to get s2 from.I first thought i had the dish set up just about perfect!Was getting great c and ku quality on all sats that i could get but then realized i wasnt getting any S2.My first s2 lock finnally came in when i saw a small blimp of Q activeity on the PBS s2 TP.Went outside to the bottom of dish and slightly tuged and pushed on the dish and My Q jumped from around 7 to 60.So for me it was a very slight adjustment that was needed on the dish elevation.36" motorized dish on garage roof and 6' sadoun dish! w/ DMX741, VBox powermax ver10,AZbox Ultra Hd using the 6 footer and GEOSATpro DRS200c+solomend running the .90cm ku dish. Neusat 9000 at backup.

Stanley said it well. DVB-S2 is much more difficult to acquire. It takes a more finely tuned dish.

Well, I will wait until I get a C/Ku lnbf for my 8 foot dish and hook the Coolsat receiver to it. Maybe then I will get the S2 channels.
I have been thinking about getting me a Azbox Ultra receiver that will scan in those channels.
Thanks for your replies, guys!
