    Polgyver: Yes it is good for using outside with a little TV. I have a 7 inch tv just for that. But, it would get no signal on 125W Public Television because it is all DVB-S2. Mine is working good. I did a blind scan on 97W and got all the channels. I didn't leave it on very long. The case warmed up just a little. I got mine for $15.oo. Thanks again

    Mini speaker just built in

    Small speaker from cordless phone fits nicely inside this mini receiver. A small sponge disc with double-sided glue surface, included in the package for fastening photocell, came handy for attaching the speaker. After some consideration, I abandoned the idea of glueing the mini speaker to the top of the overheating IC. Instead, I fastened it to the opposite side of PCB. This set can work similarly to satellite finder, using 12 V battery, without any additional small TV. For the pictures taken, I used home-made "illuminator" utilizing LED strap tie-wrapped to plastic basin Click image for larger version.

    Hi Polgyver,

    I too bought two of these receivers on ebay. I am a total newbie at all this satellite talk. I just want to pick up galaxy 19. I am trying to use a 22" dish to pick it up. I live in Jamaica and I have tried attaching it to the house, and set it to the directions given by dishpointer and satfinder but all I am getting is "bad signal" when I turn it on. I am using a digital signal finder and even when I hear it buzzing it says bad signal. Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

    22 inch dish is a bit small. I only got the strongest with an 18 inch dish. I get them all with a 30 inch but will loose some with heavy overcast/rain/fog. (Bigger IS better)
    What model LNBF do you have? Specifications? (best to list ALL equipment when a problem)

    to Satelliteguys

    EDIT: just looked at satbeams. they are recommending a 80cm / 31.5in

    Hi, Slogie,
    Welcome to this forum!
    I was in such comfortable situation, that my dish, 39" high, was already precisely pointed to the 97 W sat.
    This small receiver satellite list did not have in its menu 97 W, if my memory serves...
    This rec is made for Europe and Asia.
    But you can program "New Satellite" and add all needed data, like LNB - normal (standard), 10.750 L.O.
    Indeed, the dish seems too small.
    Would be easier if you can find someone (a neighbour, or friend) with working bigger Ku dish, and try programming there.
    Cheers, polgyver
