    5G interference solutions

    And also 5G Internet Gateways installed at a neighbor's house. Verizon's Gateway uses band n77 (C Band).

    5G interference solutions

    I haven't looked at LegitFTA yet. But the one I plan on building will consist of a laptop computer, an SDR (software defined radio), an unfiltered C-Band LNBF, a 13 volt power source with a bias tee to power the LNBF, a 12 inch wide parabolic dish and my SDR Program named DR Processor running...

    Canceling DirecTV

    Great! Reminds me of how relieved I was last September when Dish got my receiver and LNBF back. I see from your post #8 here that you have already activated several streaming services. Hope you have unlimited internet bandwidth like I do. :-) My wife signed us up for Youtube TV today and I can...

    Canceling DirecTV

    OK, I will try it here on 1.45.02 some day soon and if it doesn't work then I will try it on FireTV and Roku.

    Canceling DirecTV

    Are you able to skip YoutubeTV commercials during live TV with 1.45.02? (Sorry if you already answered that somewhere else).

    Canceling DirecTV

    Yes. I cannot stand commercials any more. Dish DVRs and my TiVo have spoiled me. I could not "trick play" YouTube TV so I went to Philo for $25 a month. Can't trick play that either I even pay for YouTube Premium to avoid the ads. I uninstalled YouTube TV on my Sony and re-downloaded it. The...

    Canceling DirecTV

    They only care about developing a new model every year, usually released between February and April. The solution to the lack of TV App updates is an easy fix -- instead of replacing the TV just get a Roku, Fire Stick or whatever has the latest apps. EDIT: Oops, looks like Bruce is a faster...

    My Sony is 3 years old. I don't have a Roku but I do have a Fire Stick about 1 1/2 years old.

    Canceling DirecTV

    (I realize this thread is about cancelling DirecTV, but I think streaming services are semi-relevant to the topic because most people will want a streaming alternative after cancelling satellite service. If I'm wrong then a moderator can move this to the Cord Cutters section.) That being said...

    Canceling DirecTV

    Besides the Hopper Duo, Dish DID ask for the remote control. And also the LNBF which is on top of my 2 story house. I complied. But I am considering going back to Dish. I really miss the DVR and the ability to skip commercials before the show is over. I could simply find what I wanted to watch...

    Looking for a good magnifying glass with light for working with electronics

    Thanks for the excellent advice. Yes, got 3 additional smaller tips with the heat gun. I don't plan on re-balling BGA chips any time soon! I'm getting some solder 63/37 tin/lead 0.015". Should be small enough. I will practice a LOT with various devices.Things that still work or partially work...

    Looking for a good magnifying glass with light for working with electronics

    Below is the hot air rework station that I got. I like it so far. I plan on using the hot air gun with the circuit board lying on a piece of scrap granite countertop. (It's the piece that they cut out for the sink.) Should be able to handle plenty of heat! What I need to research is how hot to...

    Looking for a good magnifying glass with light for working with electronics

    I tried the head magnifier and decided it won't work for me. Unless I put my face within inches of what I am working on, it is blurry. And I have to bend my neck looking down, which hurts. So I am going to have to get a microscope with an LCD screen that I can look at easier. There are lots of...

    Looking for a good magnifying glass with light for working with electronics

    Will watch some of Alex's videos tonight. "TheCod3r" uses a stereo microscope with a camera so his YouTube viewers can see what is going on. This one looks good too. If I get eye strain from the Beileshi Head Magnifier I could upgrade in the future to an LCD screen...

    Canceling DirecTV

    And if you purchase your receiver yourself instead of getting the one provided, save your purchase receipt!!!!!! Long ago I purchased my own ViP receiver and Dish claimed it was theirs. I had to fight with them to convince them that it was mine. Had to send a receipt showing proof of purchase...

    Canceling DirecTV

    Only took me 25 minutes to cancel Dish Network at the end of August. Less hassle than I expected. :-) But I am having regrets. I'm currently subscribed to Philo streaming and miss some of the channels I lost. I can go online and sign up for Dish service again in only a few minutes! All these...

    FOR SALE Geosat Pro 1.2m Dish NIB Located in Upstate South Carolina

    My first Geosat Pro 1.2 meter got damaged and was bent beyond repair. Fortunately I live only about 6 miles away from SatelliteAV. So I got the original dish and the replacement without paying shipping. Just went there and picked them up in person. :-) They were really nice and gave me a...

    Looking for a good magnifying glass with light for working with electronics

    Thanks Mike! I just ordered one, along with some desoldering wick (braided copper). Much less expensive than I expected. ... I have learned so much from watching "TheCod3r" and "TronicsFix" on YouTube. Highly recommend checking them out if you get a chance.

    Looking for a good magnifying glass with light for working with electronics

    I have been doing electronic repairs for long time. Now my close up vision isn't nearly as good as it used to be. Can anyone recommend a good magnifying glass + light for doing work with circuit boards? I have seen three types of these. Some are simple magnifying glasses on a stand with LED...

    Dish Price Lock

    Thanks. The only remaining question is - Am I eligible if I cancelled Dish (on good terms) only 4 months ago, or do I need to wait until it's 6 months?

    Dish Price Lock

    I cancelled Dish in late August. Now I see that they offer a 3 year price lock. I am tempted. I have tried various streaming services, but they all force me to watch commercials except on recorded content. With my old Hopper Duo I could pause live TV for about 20 minutes and then come back...

    ps4 Question

    I have a PS5 and I really am happy with it. I got mine a few months ago via an Amazon "Invitation" to buy one. To get the invitation I had to sign up last summer and wait a couple of months, but at least I was able to get a new PS5 at the MSRP of $499 instead of the scalper price on eBay. One...

    Dbs system creation

    The frequencies going from the LNBF to the receiver are down converted to 950-2150 MHz by the LNBF. So a multi switch going up to 2150 MHz is appropriate for the job. FTA satellite receivers have gotten much smaller in the past 10-15 years. Some are not much larger than a pack of cigarettes! So...
