    GOD TV gone?

    Unfortunately it is still listed as a channel on the Glorystar website. Time for it to be removed.

    GOD TV gone?

    GOD TV appears to have left the building (or the satellite, at least). LyngSat doesn't have them listed on G19 anymore. Their website still shows them on Galaxy 19, but I don't see them. Also, I didn't see anyone mention that Al Jazeera is now encoded according to LyngSat (not that I ever...

    DVR1100c loses Vertical signals

    Brian, thanks for the information on splitters. rv1pop: $3 part with $11 shipping. Gotta love it. It's actually cheaper to order the one from England off eBay, but thanks for a domestic source.

    DVR1100c loses Vertical signals

    Sounds like a new receiver is the best solution. Thanks for all the help! To the more academic question, for future use: To measure the voltage under load, can I create a short RG6 cable with the conductor partially exposed and use that for reading voltage, or is that not safe for the...

    DVR1100c loses Vertical signals

    Using a Digital Multimeter to measure DC Volts from the pin of a wire connected to the SAT IN port to a screw on the receiver exterior for ground, with no LNBF connected: H channels: 21.9 VDC +/- 0.1 V channels: 21.7 VDC +/- 0.1 Thanks.

    DVR1100c loses Vertical signals

    I am unsure how I would measure voltage on a device powered and connected. Sounds like I would need a special device with F connectors on it. Some details would be most appreciated. Note as well that the same LNBF, when connected to my Viewsat on the same connector, works fine. I have tried...

    DVR1100c loses Vertical signals

    During a recent storm, a nearby lightning strike apparently fried the two LNBFs on my Glorystar system (one of the earlier models, with support for SES1 and Galaxy 19). I had long planned transitioning from the two SL1 LNBF system (with the SES1 LNBF no longer used) to a single dual LNBF dish...

    Please wait... Saving Data

    Turns out that the hard drive has the dreaded "click of death." It's toast. *groan* Thanks.

    Please wait... Saving Data

    Thank you. I will look into possible disk errors. Only other thought I had was that there used to be a show to be recorded this morning, but I disabled it yesterday. Perhaps it got confused and somehow started to record something which it didn't need to record. But there is no evidence of it...

    Please wait... Saving Data

    Well, I just rebooted from the rear. Can't see any artifacts from the supposed "Saving Data" operation. No clue what was happening or why.

    Please wait... Saving Data

    Just looked up at the Geosatpro box in my office to see the display reads, "rEC". Turning on the TV, I see the message "Please wait... Saving Data" in the familiar blue box in the middle of the screen. It's been like this for 15 minutes, at least. Strange thing is that there is nothing on the...

    No Signal for Al Jazeera English and Russia Today

    This is just too weird. Let me explain. Yesterday, I got a used Viewsat VS2000 receiver which I intend to eventually use as a second receiver. To test the VS2000, I powered off the Geosatpro box, disconnected it, connected the VS2000 and powered it on. After fiddling with the configuration a...

    Time Record function forgets programming

    Let me try to clarify my post from yesterday: 1. As of Monday, all was well 2. Tuesday morning, I discover that the Glorystar update occurred. I see that the channel names have shifted in the time record list. 3. I decide to ignore the time record list for the moment and add History and...

    Time Record function forgets programming

    I understand the logic as to why the time record list is altered or dropped after an update, but why would the time record list be erased on Wednesday after the update was complete and after I re-entered the time record list? Is there an event which would cause that to happen? Thank you.

    Time Record function forgets programming

    Well, all was working fine until yesterday (Tuesday). I noticed that the auto update had occurred. I went to the Timer Record function and found that all entries were correct, but the channels were wrong. I thought, "Well that will be easier to fix than entering everything." But first I...

    Time Record function forgets programming

    I am hoping it is solved. It has been 8 days, which is about the longest it has ever gone without losing its programming memory. I held my breath today when I had to flip the back switch off for a couple seconds to get the remote to regain its sanity, but the program memory is still intact...

    Time Record function forgets programming

    Thank you! It lives again! I have reloaded the programming into Time Record. Now I'll wait to see if it disappears again. Thanks again.

    Time Record function forgets programming

    Well, I did the Load Default as instructed. When I power back on the Master Power, I get the word "boot" on the display, the blue indicator light on, the green light indicating the presence of the hard drive, and nothing else. The unit appears to have hung. So I powered off, disconnected the...

    Time Record function forgets programming

    About 3 weeks ago, I finally bought an 80 GB disk drive to enable the Time Record function on the GEOSATpro DVR1100C. The disk works fine and the record function is terrific... if it only wouldn't forget its programming every week. Each week, during a different day of the week, the recording...
