    Lip Sync issues on 113W

    Anybody else experiencing lips sync issues on the Luken transponder (RTV, Heartland) on Eutelsat 113 West A (formerly Satmex ??). Also the PQ is horrendous, what happened to this network? Using uHD, my only HD receiver.

    Von Weise V76-5 Refurbishing Project

    After 25 years of faithful service it's now time to change the acme screw - already done (thanks to friend in C-band since it's inception who still has parts and the tools to do this). Sorry I couldn't witness this and share for safety/covid reasons (no pics either) Now I have brushed all...

    Polarizer Servo (Corotor ][ +) Issues

    Hey folks been a while. Okay so last week I started having issues with above mentioned component i.e. temperamental Vertical. Skew in the Prog menu of my Startrak 400 "kicked" it back to life. There has been a good deal or rain followed by temperature plummeting so I suspect things froze up...

    Unsteady DVB-S2 Signals on Old C-Band Lnb

    Thought I 'd start a new thread here and not bury this in the uHD post. Prob: "Bouncing", unsteady, or otherwise intermittent reception on HD content (most, not all) on Geosat uHD. Using: Old C-band LNB (Norsat?), "noisy', TI (never had prob before), system peaked. Options: Newer DRO or PLL...

    uHD Max HD Size, Erratic DVB-S2 Signals etc.

    Hi folks sorry to post here but this really is a C-Band related not pirate / hack / DVB nonsense. I forgot how big a drive (ext. USB) this box can format and record to. Up to now I have used a 1 TB drive. But it's full and I want to keep the programming on it (Got the usual SATA "crash" at > 80...

    Lnb L.O. Drift (Decades <--> H&I)

    Hello again, more Decades/H&I troubles ;) Ok I took the plunge and finally flashed my microHD with the June 6 th file (latest) to be able to receive all the channels that are closely spaced (4 khz) . This was supposed to fix the problem where Decades would suddenly start pixelating and turn...

    Decades Shows up as Radio channel...

    I am trying to scan in Decades at 3957V/2734 on an older DVB box (CW600S Premium) and it finds it but as a radio channel not tv. Same for H&I. Are these channels using a different tv format than MeTV is ? I know the tp's are real close for Movies!, Decades, H&I, and H&I -Alt. I am thinking of...

    SES1 Signal Degradation

    MeTV transponders now noticeably weaker and 'shakier' than we're used to. With Feed (MeTV2) going HD (?) with 720p test pattern looks like another sign of S2 nonsense. Why would classic tv shows from 50 years ago need to be encrypted in HD I will never understand. Nothing wrong with system -...

    America One

    They are gone from Galaxy 23 (Echo 9) replaced by an annoying Youtoo tv. Gone are Burns and Allen, Love That Bob, Life with Elizabeth, Ozzie and Harriet to make room for junk tv... another victim of 'progress'. I didn't find anything about the sudden change. If anybody has some news please...

    Movies!, on GeoSat micro HD Pro disappears

    Hi all, got this strange behaviour lately on my Geosat micro HD Pro, where if I go to another channel then come back to Movies! , it's gone, requiring a fresh blind scan. In other words if I stay on the channel it's fine, otherwise a channel change causes me to lose it and the only way to get it...

    Thinking of Removing Dielectric plate Corotor II+ Wideband

    Well, think I'm getting tired of low signals, and don't care about circular material anymore. Now , like a dummy, I threw out my old beat up Corotor II+, and realized later I could have used parts from it for my conversion. I didn't attempt this at the time when I realized it required complete...

    New Japan Radio Co. Ku lnb

    Well I had to replace my shorted out Norsat Ku lnb due to a damaged , by a gardener, dbc ribbon cable ..ouch ! Fortunately the receiver had short circuit protection. I replaced it with a better specification NJRC 2744HH, but have a very poor (low) signal , especially those erratic RTV DVB-S2...

    GEOSATpro Can no longer receive RTV on 87 and 137 W - HBCD modulation No Signal !

    I've lost all dvb-S2 signals on 87 W (those listed on Lyngsat/ Mike Kohl). The signal quality is zero and the info says "HBCD" modulation/ By source (resolution). Both on 87 and 137 W. DVB-S signals are fine i.e 360 North and Alaska nets. I checked the signal , DVB-s that is, on a second unit...
