    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    Can anyone explain the logic in this? Yesterday afternoon we had a lightning and thunderstorm in the area. Just outside at the time we heard a loud pop and it sounded bad close. I assumed at the time lightning hit something close then, but at the time it never dawned on me what it may have...

    GEOSATpro So what am I doing wrong here?

    First off, the clock and date are set correctly in the MicroHD. Just thought I should mention that first. That aside for a moment then. Whenever I hit the record button it always defaults to 2 hours. But I want it to record until I hit stop, which might mean 2 hours and some minutes. There are...

    Could the microHD be the culprit?

    IMO my 7.5' dish is tracking pretty much spot on. But recently I started having problems with some signals on some birds. So I then ordered a C1 PLL lnbf which helped greatly with some of these now problem signals, but as to the other problem signals, it didn't help at all. I'm in East Texas and...

    Elevation bolt rusted

    Don't know how it got so rusted like it did. It went years without ever getting rusted. I need to do some elevation adjustments, except this bolt is now so rusted that I can't even get the nut to turn with a pipe wrench. It's unreal, almost like someone superglued the nut to the bolt. I would...

    Is this channel hard to tune in, meaning in general?

    I live in Texarkana, Tx and a have a 7.5' dish. There's huge pine tree to the west of the dish where some of the branches were extending out so far that they caused signal issues on some birds and some channels but not all channels on the birds in question. So I got up on the roof the other day...

    Tracking the arc on an unlevel pole

    Initially my Bud was tracking the arc near perfectly for the most part. Lately I have been having issues with certain channels on different birds and not being able to get a lock on them anymore. So I finally decided to put a level on the pole.I checked it on the north side and the east side...

    Why doesn't this trick work for KU as well?

    The receiver I have is the MicroHD. I have 2 dishes. One C Band, the other a motorized 31" offset dish. As to the former, I control that with my 4DTV 922 receiver. Let's suppose I'm in the MicroHD Motor/Switch Setting tab. I then drop down to the Transponder Setting and choose one from the...

    The MicroHD and front projectors

    I have 3 front projectors that are capable of HD, but of course, limited to the native resolutions of the projector. These particilar projectors do HD through HD15. In the 4DTV days when one could still sub master feeds, I used to sub DiscoveryHD, and run this through the HDD200 into one of the...

    Is the MicroHD still being supported by the company that produced it?

    After reading through some of these threads I have to then wonder. By being supported I'm meaning things like future FW upgrades, or has this project been pretty much abandoned like XP was for example after SP3? IOW is the latest FW upgrade all she wrote as far as FW upgrades for this receiver?

    Which steps should I take once I get the MicroHD?

    Not certain if this is the correct place to post this or not. I ordered a brand new MicroHD which should be here by Friday. I have zero experience with this receiver. But I have checked out some threads here and there, so that I won't be totally clueless when it arrives. I have no idea what...

    OpenBox S9 started acting up the other day..

    When I went to bed that night, it was parked on a C Band ch on 105W that wasn't getting enough signal to display any video, plus it took at least 5 minutes to lock to begin with. In the past this particular signal has always been marginal, but usually played just fine, though sometimes it might...

    I have an H and H mount, but...

    I have never found anything east of 72 W. So what exactly is the trick in accomplishing this? I'm in the Texarkana area, currently using an S9, and the dish size is 31" I think. I've had this particular dish up for probably 10 years or so now. Have never found any signals beyond 72W. If I were...

    What's the best procedure to get tracking optimally again?

    In the past my 7.5' BUD was tracking pretty much spot on. But because of a couple of bad wind storms recently my dish is no longer tracking like it was. I'm still on the arc and all, just not like before. And no matter what I do, I can't seem to get it back like I previously had it. Currently...

    The CW @ 91W tv schedules?

    Apparently they've changed their programming schedule on the 5 feeds at this location as of today. Every weeknight at 6PM Central time I tune into the CW Plus P feed to watch my fav show of late, The Steve Wilkos Show. Hey, I love it when he tells his guests to get the hell off his stage, lol...

    Channel breaking up, what is likely the problem?

    I have a 7.5' Bud and an S9 receiver. There's this particular feed I'm tuning in, which I would rather not say which one, but the FEC is 9/10, I can tell you at least that much. This signal is on C Band, and I have no problem locking it whatsoever. On the S9 I'm getting a steady Q of around 72...

    It's starting to look like mid December around here.

    Except it doesn't feel like mid December weatherwise tho. lol.. What I mean by the title of the thread is this, usually the leaves on the trees start falling late October. And finally, around mid December, all the branches are leafless. Well it's starting to look that way now. For the past...

    How do you know what you know?

    As I read thru some of these threads I'm blown away with some of the things some folks come up with. Speaking for myself, I'm pretty much self taught when it comes to sat dishes. Having never owned a satellite dish in my life, I successfully installed a 10' BUD back in 1995 I think, then got it...

    Could use some quick advice.

    Hope this is the correct forum to post this in. Not trying to get into a lengthy discussion..just looking for advice, since I'm assuming some in here would have experience with this. I'm looking at a Samsung 32" LCD tv for my bedroom. One that I can use with the OepnBox S9 DVB sat receiver...

    How many Luken muxes @ 87W?

    Until just recently, I wasn't able to see this sat because of tree limbs. So this means I never really kept up with what was happening at this location. I've been scanning in a bunch of chs that don't play, so I decided to delete every single ch on that sat, and then rescan. I'm still getting...
