    Titanium Satellite Titanium ASC1 Positioner Troubleshooting

    Thanks, Brian. I agree those were great troubleshooting suggestions. KE4EST is correct. My auto ranging multimeter is too slow to see the voltage. I have figured out what the problem is. Seems I have an intermittent short in one of the motor wires. Best I can figure is that it is occurring at...

    Titanium Satellite Titanium ASC1 Positioner Troubleshooting

    I haven't had time yet today, but i can try later. From what I understand from searching the forum, it should at least put out a voltage for 1/2 second across M1 and M2 then stop if either the sensor or sensor circuit was not working. Does that sound right?

    Titanium Satellite Titanium ASC1 Positioner Troubleshooting

    Everything else seems to be working. Polarity control is fine. Unit powers up. Just doesn't move the dish. The actuator indeed works with another controller. Stinks because it is less than 1 year old and it would be nice to figure out what happened so I can repair it.

    Titanium Satellite Titanium ASC1 Positioner Troubleshooting

    Thanks. I assumed that was how it was supposed to work. I will see if I can dig up a momentary switch and check the sensor circuit. I have also connected the ASC1 directly to the actuator as well as a good spare with a short piece of ribbon cable on my bench and it gives the E/W error on both...

    Yes, All wiring is fine. It is something within the ASC1.

    Titanium Satellite Titanium ASC1 Positioner Troubleshooting

    Hello. I am on my second ASC1. The first one stopped powering on after a severe electrical storm. I the saw that they were being discontinued so i bought a refurbished one from Titanium's site instead of repairing the original. Now the refurbished unit will not move the dish. Gives the E/W limit...

    Look at the chart. There was one transponder that was a test card used to identify the satellite. The rest of the transponders were available to anyone to rent for a fee. Are you just going to pick another satellite and ask the same question over and over?

    The only people who would know which specific affiliate leased what satellite/transponder when would be whichever company owned SBS-4 at the time, possibly the television station themselves. I really doubt they would tell you who rented which transponder 20 years ago. It never was published...

    This should answer all of your questions. Here is the Satcodx chart from Feb 1998, it is as detailed as you will find. It has everything your asking about and more. SATCO DX Satellite Chart: North and South America

    Now that we've cleared those things up, where do you get the idea that KTLA and WPIX were on E2 Ku in in VideoCipher "in the clear"? Those channels were in VideoCipher II, scrambled (not clear) on 87W C-Band according to the chart you provided. There were never any VCII channels on Ku Band...

    Joseph, What does the term VideoCipher mean to you? What is the difference between C and Ku bands? Who are "they"? You're still looking at archived satellite charts from the 90's and you still don't know the difference or even what you're looking at. Please provide a link to the chart or source...

    I'm pretty sure that transponderman is a user that was banned fron Rick's before and is now using another user name. That or a strange coincidence that they type exactly the same way with way too many commas and a lot of unnecessary caps.
