    Same again. Board says my last activity was Aug 9 @ 1:46pm, but the New FTA Posts results and the individual highlighting of new threads thinks my last activity was Aug 19 @ around 6:30pm. Seems the board can't look back more than about 5 or 6 days. Maybe it's limited to number of threads or...

    Bad again today. Last activity was 7/30 @ 3:51pm (not quite 10 days ago). First message that the board thought was new to me in the FTA areas was 8/3 @ 10:45pm (not quite 6 days ago). As a result, the board failed to mark 21 threads in FTA, 1 thread in FTAshack, 11 threads in CBand, 11...

    What types of modulations can the microHD demodulate?

    Sorry, Brian, I have a go-back on this one. I scanned some feeds on 103W yesterday. Didn't notice the parameters at the time, but when I looked at them later, the feeds were gone and the info screen showed (HBCD). I've reconfirmed that now that I'm back home. I'm doing a detailed blind scan...

    microHD Quality Meter Linearity?

    Yep, can't argue with that, Brian. Just something I noticed different from other receivers I've played with. Spent the afternoon looking at a few transponders with my new microHD, my AZBox Premium HD, and my old standby Coolsat 4000 Pro. Used a Primestar 84e on an SG2100 motor. Used the...

    microHD Quality Meter Linearity?

    One other thing I noticed is the Signal Level is always 90 if you have a signal, 45 if there's no signal. Have never seen anything else. In the full screen meter, the left most bar is the newest sample. __ Neil

    microHD Quality Meter Linearity?

    So far, microHD quality meter seems to be on par with that of my AZBox Premium. Can't remember my CS4K anymore and have no experience with the Openbox receivers. __ Neil
