    What Happened To My Family TV?

    Hello Friends! Sorry in advanced if this topic was covered already, but I was unable to search down anything on this. The signal on this channel used to be very strong on G3C but now I can't find it. Did it go away?

    Intelsat 14

    Anyone out there having any luck locking in Canal Info News on Intelsat 14, 45 deg west (11675-V-1240). I've got an AZBox Elite and getting over 50% but can't get this one to come in. I manually added in the PIDs but can't get a picture. Its in DVB MPEG4 format, not sure if thats the problem.

    DVB-S2 8PSK Signals

    Thanks for the feedback. Guess I'll have to try harder. Once this format becomes mainstream I guess it'll be more difficult to catch C-band reception.
