    How to fine tune a motorized dish

    JMC, OK. You know that you had the signal from 97W locked in originally, albeit a little shaky, right? Then you tweaked on the dish (and/or the motor) and you lost contact with that signal. Therefore, you should simply realize that you are merely just misaligned. You could attempt to...

    How to fine tune a motorized dish

    JMC, Sorry that the guides confused you. After you have spent more time experimenting with your equipment and have re-read the guides then the directions will become more apparent to you. I happen to have the same dish (1.2M GeoSat Pro) and the identical motor (DG-380) as you have. My...

    Questions about switch disecq and 4x4 on Motorized dish and C band set up

    Vallenato, Yeah, that sounds like it should work just fine. Coolsat wired to motor to control motor and then to one port of the LNBF. OpenBox wired to 22KHz switch then DiSEqC switch and then to the remaining port of the LNBF on motorized dish. The other 22KHz and DiSEqC switch ports feed...

    Hey Boris, Sorry, I missed this reply from you when you posted it. Great FUN video! I assume that what you typed are the lyrics of the song by Valery Kuras: "Pampushechka" Really good! It doesn't translate perfectly, but I understand the meaning fine :) "The first days of spring March 8...

    motor loses its mind when powered down

    Jim, I am not certain of how this motor retains that memory. But, the BBRAM IC that i spoke of looks like a typical IC, except it is "fatter" (taller and wider). The lithium battery cell is actually built into the IC so there wouldn't be a separate battery like a coin cell type on the board...

    motor loses its mind when powered down

    JimS, Which receiver are you using to control this motor? This could be a receiver problem since there is nothing stored in the motor when using USALS. The motor positioning is all calculated from the lat/long coordinates of the site and the orbital position of the satellite selected, all of...

    AZBOX AZBox Recovery Procedure for a box locked up in booting/checking/loading

    darkCoklat, From all appearances, it looks like all your hardware is in good shape. You were able to communicate past the point where my first failed AZBox was, I never got to the point of recovery with my failed box as it was a physical hardware failure and I had to send the box in...

    Questions about switch disecq and 4x4 on Motorized dish and C band set up

    Vallenato, Regarding question #1. This is not recommended as the current demand of the motor will typically destroy your switch and it may not always work in the first place. This is the accepted answer. Now, just to contradict myself, I personally set up just a system to test this, running...

    Soon to be back to FTA!!

    µHD or AZBox Premium + Both have advantages over all others. I have both units, but I haven't hooked up my µHD yet. The µHD is less expensive and more user friendly (as I have been informed). The AZBox has other capabilities like 4.2.2 etc, but is much more expensive and has some glitches...

    Brandin, You are welcome. I commend you on your desire / willingness to follow through with this enterprise and accelerate the use of FTA in Alaska. I do comprehend the fact that FTA satellite TV would be a desirable option for the residents there. So, let's discuss this in more detail so...

    Why choose FTA?

    Brandin, In my opinion, I believe that the future is going to be more and more based upon streaming internet and the content therein as opposed to any home-based/personal satellite avenues. Obviously, someone has to set up a receiving station which would include a satellite based access to...

    Why choose FTA?

    FTAalaska, FTA satellite TV is primarily a hobbyists endeavor today. It does not replace or substitute for the programs that can be found through pay-subscription services like DN or DirecTV or Shaw/BellExpress etc. However, it can be a really engaging hobby for those with the background...

    lnb problem

    Tonguetwister, That is a fairly high dollar LNBF. I would recommend verifying if the LO drift is the actual cause before you pitch it. Erase all the TPs logged in on a specific sat and when the LNBF is cool, like early in the morning when it hasn't been powered up for more than a few minutes...

    Question About SG-2100 Declination Angle Settings

    Avenger, I am not meaning to sound so much like I am just parroting Brian above, but I did want to add a few personal points to watch out for and a couple explanations/tricks. The main items to be sure you set correctly are the latitude on the motor, the elevation of the dish and the plumb...

    Equipment vendor rant

    Anymore I deal directly (and solely) with the sponsors of SatelliteGuys and those companies which advertise and visit the forum here. I have never found a reason to gripe with them, not once and not in the least! I have never come close to a bad experience with any one of them here...
