    GEOSATpro Micro HD Boot Problem?

    One of my Micro HD receivers has had a boot problem now for a while and it's getting worse as time goes on. What it's doing is, when I turn the power strip on to boot up it won't show me the "RED" LED at 15 seconds into the boot process and it seems to lock up and not do anything more. I turn...

    Openbox Daily Timed Recording Problem With Openbox S9?

    With one of my last two Micro HD receivers starting to screw up I brought out my old Openbox S9s a couple of weeks ago to do daily recording. They work kinda OK with one exception. When I set the “Daily” timed recording for the Decades channel on 101w they will record the next morning at 8am...

    Balun Info?

    I've been having problems with my OTA setup now for some time and just decided a while back not to do anything with it until after the "repack" was finished. Well, "repack" was done last week and I'm getting even less channels than before so it's time to do something. Question on baluns, so...

    GEOSATpro Micro HD Taking A Dump?

    Well, for about a week or so one of my Micro HD receivers has been acting up. What it's doing is the picture is going on and off in like 3 or 4 second intervals and it's getting hot as a pistol, ie, measured the heat sink with my IR heat gun and it was 165*??? The heat doesn't start building...

    Economical OTA Recording Equipment?

    Don't know exactly what I'm looking for here, but, what I want to do is be able to record TV shows I receive that are broadcast OTA to my TV? Sort of like what I do with my satellite TV recorder only just OTA stuff. What I'm looking for is just the basic stuff without a bunch of bells and...

    OTHER C/Ku LNBF Ku Reception Problem Solution

    Would like a confirmation on this from “Those In The Know”. I've got a C/Ku LNBF I'm experimenting with that has a problem of sorts receiving 103w Ku signals. I've noticed that the little antenna wires down in the Ku section don't “seem” to be 90 degrees apart like most I've looked at, so, is...

    OTHER Eagle Aspen v4000 LNBF Setup

    OK so the pics posted are of that Eagle Aspen LNBF that was “donated” to me by a kind soul here on Sat Guys last winter and the weather has finally gotten good enough to try to install it to see how it works. What I don't know is how to set the polarity/skew on it? Down on the lower end it's got...

    R.I.P. DMX741 LNBF!

    Well, one of my last two DMX-741 LNBFs took a dump! That leaves only the one on my Winegard dish. Where is WSI when you need them!!! This one that quit working was on the Raydx and it's really funny how it went down. It was working flawlessly up until we got 11.5” of snow back about a month ago...

    OTA TV Channel Scans and SNOW??

    OK, so I’ve been having problems picking up some OTA channels in my area now for some time. Latest scans done a while back only got me 18 channels, which is a little over half what I was getting before the the last redo of local channels? Since then the channel count has been up and down between...

    OTHER Why Are SR Numbers Off?

    Got a question about the SR numbers on one of my systems. Example: I just finished doing a rescan of 107w with both my Winegard and Raydx systems using 2 different Micro HD receivers. Raydx has a DMX741 LNBF with the old style metal cap on the Ku end and the Winegard has a newer WSI NS741...

    Another WTF Moment At My House!

    Two days ago, as I disconnected all my dish connections to my Vbox movers because of another storm I thought that making those quick disconnect plug setups for those things was a really good idea. That and I always unplug ALL the power strips that are associated with TV period. I hadn't lost...
