    Someone clued me in to a wild feed, my Traxis on blind scan would not pick up the TP. Is there a way to manually add the TP? I noticed in the TP index that TP was not even listed, is it possible I need new firmware?

    Ha I just found out it was in 8psk which my 3500 will not do!

    Was just about to comment that the 3500 is a pretty old receiver, and many signals today need a more modern S2-capable receiver.
    I see you have a nice 1.2 mtr dish; time to get a receiver to match. :up ;)

    Oldie but goodie! I still use mine for dish-tuning. When you have to blind-scan fast and a lot while adjusting a dish, it is great. Viewable meter and tuning=tone. But only standard def, and DVB-S.

    Same here. I keep it as a backup for the regular audio DVB-S channels, but mostly use it for adjusting a new dish setup :)

    "Channel Master Polar mount" How 'bout a photo or two. I'd like some more ideas. Or confirmation on what I plan to weld together. Thanks.
