    GEOSATpro GSP MicroHD channel editor Muzak PID issues

    I am trying to add the Muzak / mood channels to my GEOSatpro MicroHD using Mediabox Editor Studio (MES). I'd done this a few years ago, but in the meantime, my original MicroHD died and I must have deleted my .udf files. What's happening is that although I am able to add the correct audio pid...

    PBS MUX down on 125W?

    It's coming in just fine here in Central Pennsylvania. Using a 90cm with a PLL LNB, and SQ on my MicroHD wavers from 67 to 72.

    Signal loss over coax. Solution?

    Whoo-hoo! Went back up, redid the cable, and found a sweeter spot to aim that I just couldn't find before. 91 at 9.0dB, and 87 at 6.9db. I am happy! I'd had a dedicated 76 cm for just 91, and I think that can have a new purpose.

    Signal loss over coax. Solution?

    Sigh. I got home early today and decided to redo the connector up on the roof. I did fine adjustment too while I was up there, getting 6.9 dB on 87 and 6.0dB on 91. Went downstairs and there is zero Q and no lock. Which is worse than last night. Sigh. Either I screwed up the end, or this...

    Signal loss over coax. Solution?

    Cable is Tappan, which I'd bought at Home Depot. Last night I put a new end (I don't know what brand--Ideal, maybe?) on the basement end of the cable, but it made no difference. I will try to get back up to the roof tonight and do a new end up there. I'm trying to reconfigure the farm a bit...

    Signal loss over coax. Solution?

    Yes -- it is marked as CCS. I never noticed that before. I have lots of it in use, but this is the only one that has given me any problem. Longest run would still be less than about 50 feet. I'll put new ends on what is already there, and see if that makes a difference. If not, I guess...

    Signal loss over coax. Solution?

    Hi, folks. Well, I've been working on the dish farm a little bit. I have a 90cm on the roof, and it's for 87 & 91. To date, I only had the 87 tuned in, since I didn't get the time to dedicate to the dual LNB. I'm using a Geosatpro 4 degree kit, and the matching bullet LNBs with two outputs...

    Directv slimline dish... any use for it?

    I have a Slimline for 95W as well, and I suspect many of us have done that kind of experiment. I am intrigued by that LNB in the ebay link, though. It would have made my job a lot easier. Thinking out loud here...would the news feeds on 91 be possibly achievable on a Slimline?

    Which new receiver with specific features?

    Blindowl, that is an amazing and generous offer. Thank you, sincerely. I started a Conversation with you for the specifics. I really enjoy how helpful and useful this group is to everyone.

    Which new receiver with specific features?

    Gunman, it seems like you are a die-hard MicroHD user! I take it that you don't fix what isn't broken?

    Which new receiver with specific features?

    The MicroHD's coax jack was a bit loose, and today, it finally broke. I may try to solder it, even though I'm far from an expert, because I figure I have nothing to lose. I had been using it successfully for years, even driving an SG2100 and a 90CM on it. Nothing lasts forever, though, right...

    Which new receiver with specific features?

    My venerable Micro HD has died. It's time for a new one. It seems that the Linkbox 9001i and the Manhattan 1978 are currently good choices. Is there a respected receiver that has ability to: Import channel list, such as custom channels on 103 Audible tones for aiming and tuning dishes...

    Dish farm work, and envy, at 40.3 / -76.9

    X squared, actually. It's a cheap receiver thrown into a big lot of fta stuff I got a while back. I never really played with it until now. Sent from my SGH-T999 using the SatelliteGuys app!
