    Galaxy 4 communications after May 1998 (C-Band/Ku-Band)

    Sorry JoshHolloway1998 but the only person who might know is a former member FaT Air and he is now dead... Communication satellites have life spans and old satellites are retired and new satellites are blasted into orbit all the time. As old satellites die or new satellites are born satellite...

    price to pay to install cband mesh dish 10 ft in miami

    Loreys: On second thought I would order through Tek2000 as their Mesh Dish kits come with an actuator. If you have room why not upgrade to the 12ft dish? They both need a 4.5 O,D mounting pole. Remember the bigger the better and I'm thinking about it now. The 10ft mesh dish:

    Digicipher II - Unscrambled channels

    I Boston, I appreciate all your help and I'm admitting defeat. I'm unable to even get a signal and have tried both slaving through the loop connection and by the DSR-4810 directly connected to the LNB. I have tried your suggestions with the RF button and using the Edit knob to change the...

    Digicipher II - Unscrambled channels

    iBoston, I read the manual and put the receiver in DCII-Manual mode. I also went through and tested all the menu settings and still could not figure out to load a satellite or get any video. After a few hours I was able to figure out how to put the receiver into System Module Test mode where...

    No Signal Issue

    Do you have a spare receiver or LNB you can swap out to test with? If you had Winds gusting 60 MPH + the dish might be out of alignment.

    Digicipher II - Unscrambled channels

    If I was some multimillionaire rich guy I would demand HD or 4K video 24/7. Unfortunately for me I'm just a regular Joe and can live with SD. I'm OK with SD and will have this put on my Coffin.

    Combining C/Ku LNBF's

    I'm up and running with the following setup (below) using 2 C/KU combo lnbf's and two new Ecoda 22khz switches connected to one 1x4 diseqc switch. One lnbf has a dialectic plate to pick up circular signals while the other does not which allows for maximum signal pickup for hard to tune...
