    The North East storm, what have you done with your dish farm?

    I am happy to report that my 10' BUD and 1m KU are not harmed. I did see this on the local news. Very sad...

    Hurricane Sandy

    I don't have time or help to remove my 10' BUD, what position is best to leave the actuator in? Halfway? Or retracted all the way in?

    Tuning SES 2 @ 87°W

    This might be similar to my problem trying to get the CBS S2 TP's. I think I am tracking the ARC, but having trouble w/ high FEC S2 w/ 10 footer. Is the polarity most likely the problem compared to other settings? If so, I was thinking of trying an old LNB and polarotor. I have a Chaparral...

    Need Expert Advice - Can't Lock High FEC (9/10) TP's on 10' Mesh - Questioning Setup

    I get 77% Q on that TP now and can lock it. I guess I don't have to tweak it too much more.

    Need Expert Advice - Can't Lock High FEC (9/10) TP's on 10' Mesh - Questioning Setup

    I ventured up on the roof to tweak the azimuth and actuator. I have managed to get the CBS TP's to about 55 to 60 Q steady. However, I still cannot lock them. I have tried with linux and XP with my PROF 7500. I don't have a STB that can do S2. I am now going to try to tweak the feed if...

    What would you consider a weaker TP? 9/10 FEC? on what SAT?

    Need Expert Advice - Can't Lock High FEC (9/10) TP's on 10' Mesh - Questioning Setup

    I did max out the CW mux on 72W to 100 Q. Does this help to elimate any variables? I have an LNBF - no polarotor.

    Need Expert Advice - Can't Lock High FEC (9/10) TP's on 10' Mesh - Questioning Setup

    Another suspicion I have is that I centered the dish at 72W just east of the dish's APEX. But my true south should be 74W - there is nothing on 74W. I guessed at how far to drive the actuator east of off the APEX to peak on 72W. It seems there are too many variables to check for. Is there a...

    Need Expert Advice - Can't Lock High FEC (9/10) TP's on 10' Mesh - Questioning Setup

    I would appreciate expert advice with my problem locking High FEC (9/10) TP's on my 10' Mesh. I can receive some TP's on the SAT in question (97W) with 100% Q but they are low FEC. The high FEC TP's bounce from 0 to 70 but don't stay at 70 long. I was given this dish from a house about 5...

    Tips for Adjusting Dish/LNB for DVB-S2 (CBS FEEDS)?

    I can view 4:2:2 with mythtv and vlc. I think I have a signal quality problem of some kind rather than software problem. I can't lock the TP with mythtv but I can dump what I receive using a command line application called blindscan-s2.

    Tips for Adjusting Dish/LNB for DVB-S2 (CBS FEEDS)?

    I am using a DMX241. I can lock other transponders on those SATs. I am using a PROF 7500 to tune with linux. I notice that when I dump the CBS Transponders to a file that the file grows very slowly. I am definitely missing data. I am thinking my skew is off or my F/D is wrong or my LNB is...

    Tips for Adjusting Dish/LNB for DVB-S2 (CBS FEEDS)?

    I have not been able to lock High FEC DVB-S2 feeds on my 10' MESH. Can someone please offer steps I should take to tweak my dish and LNB? Should I start with LNB F/D, skew, centering? I really want to lock the CBS feeds on G28 and G19. I am knew to CBAND and most likely don't have my LNB...

    tune-s2, my little linux app

    UDL, is there a way to stream the tuned transponder accross the network like dvbstream? Would this be hard to add into your demux app? Thanks

    Too much tree coverage?

    I have been having trouble tuning anything west of 107W. I think it is because of trees. Please look at the pic taken from behind the dish and let me know if you agree. Thanks.
