    Another Motor Install Thread

    I have installed many 90cm Ku dishes looking at G19. A client called and I committed to install one for him and add a motor to find a replacement source for what he now gets from DirecTV. I have assessed his location and installed a very plumb iron pipe on which sits a new GeoSatPro dish and it...

    Roku's next streaming boxes will have new names like 'Premiere' and 'Ultra'

    I totally agree with your commentary above. I do have some spiritual channels that Roku has that Fire doesn't. That is important to me. I do also have Amazon Prime and lots of music on there. The Fire is a nice alternative. But:::: My Fire died after about 13 months. I had used it very little...

    GEOSATpro HDVR3500 - New DVBS2 STB - Photos and Initial Testing

    I installed the firmware. Different set of issues and still not a functional set. I emailed my concerns and requested support. No response. I called. Left a detailed voice message. No response. I called and left a message with a live person. No response. I just want a receive that works or my $$...

    GEOSATpro HDVR3500 - New DVBS2 STB - Photos and Initial Testing

    I was aware that a satellite uplink and broadcast is probably a flat cost. I was aware that streaming has a cost, but not that each stream was calculated and paid for by the provider based on time of stream. With the above in mind, it seems obvious that 3abn decided to save the cost of up...

    GEOSATpro HDVR3500 - New DVBS2 STB - Photos and Initial Testing

    This thread is interesting reading about the issues of software development for a versatile receiver. I have a more elementary need. That is to acquire a specific channel, Dare 2 Dream. My client has been rebroadcasting the channel through a dvr1200 with acceptable results. D2D is no longer on...

    I'll suggest he experiment with turning off any of them on in the nearby area. Thanks.

    Hello

    Hello again after over a year! I have been using a much more inconvenient test cable on my meter as the above learning experience was a hard one. I re-installed a system from mid Michigan to southern Alabama. It works fine as far as signal quality, etc. but the problem is that the remote on...

    Best 90cm dish

    I've set up about 40 of these. Best I've seen. They don't have totally independent elevation and azimuth adjustments. That is kinda frustrating some times. Still, I don't think there is anything on the market of this quality and price that has the independent adjustments. I recommend them.

    I use one about 30 ft. It works very well. I agree that 50 ft. or more should be fine. And in my experience, ethernet is better than wifi any day.

    I've read with interest the banter between Lake Placid and Roseville. I have a mac connected by ethernet to a Time Capsule, which is supplied by a Motorola modem provided by Charter Cable. I have a gigabit switch connected to the TC. Another switch in the living room is connected under the...

    I would like to add more local channels, especially from Augusta GA, Charleston SC, Columbia SC, Greenville SC, Myrtle Beach, SC, Spartanburg SC, Asheville NC, but haven't been able to figure out the links so far... I'm interested in channels around here, Macon, GA, etc. I have read the...

    GEOSATpro HDVR3500 - New DVBS2 STB - Photos and Initial Testing

    After some more use of this box, I completely agree with you. The IPTV generally has a better image quality than Roku, etc. The IPTV isn't instant here, but far quicker than backing up and choosing another channel with Roku! I also have AppleTV. I may be in the dark, but I don't know how to view...

    GEOSATpro HDVR3500 - New DVBS2 STB - Photos and Initial Testing

    Thanks again. I found that list and was able to see 3abn, and switched back and forth from Roku and IPTV. Practically the same on a lower quality stream. There seems to be a lot of variability in overall video quality. Obviously, IPTV has the bandwidth (local ip access limited: I have 60meg...

    I was able to upgrade to 1045. Thanx. 3abn isn't in the IPTV list. I'll want to learn to add to/edit the list. I compared Amazing facts. SD no difference. I compared NASA TV on both. HUGE difference! This is much better. I have seen that most current 3abn on roku is very good. Right now...

    Hello, I've been able to successfully install dishes with 1200, etc. receivers for some time. (about 50 total: did one today) I've had support from many on here. Thanks. This is a mission for me to allow folks to see G19 and a hobby to learn new things. This receiver (3500) is my current 'new...

    Glory Star Satellite system is working again

    Hello after a long time - - since May 24 2015. I have done some re-aims, new installs, etc. I recently aimed one in central South Carolina. They called and asked how to record programming on the 1200. They don't have a flash drive. So they will call soon after they go to town and get one. I...
