    Is PBS HD audio on 125 stereo or 5.1?

    The local PBS station here in Philly (WHYY) broadcasts all of their audio in stereo. An engineer told me that it's because of some combination of bandwidth issues or they don't have the right equipment to send the audio in 5.1. Is the audio for PBS HD East and PBS HD West on 12140 V 30000 on...

    receivers that work with OTA ATSC program guide

    Dish makes a DTVPal DVR which does a 7-day OTA EPG using TVGOS data. It records in HD to a 500 GB hard drive. There are issues with the unit however - people are experiencing reboots and freezes. My first unit got sent back under warranty. Also it is OTA only, no satellite capability.

    Anyone getting 12115 V 22425 on G25 97W?

    One other thing I noticed is that on The List this TP was updated on 9/4/08 while every other TP was updated on 10/1/08. I wonder if that is because someone else had trouble getting reception on this TP.

    Anyone getting 12115 V 22425 on G25 97W?

    I did a blind scan last night and found over 200 TV channels and a bunch of radio channels but this TP didn't scan in. Is it weaker than the other TP's? What made me look for it is there is a Philadelphia OTA TV station W36DO at DTV 36.1 that broadcasts Cornerstone Television and in...

    Thanks guys. Confirms what I was afraid of - no MacGyver being broadcast anywhere in the US at the moment.

    Diseqc and 22khz switches at end of 160 foot RG6 runs

    Interesting idea. Unfortunately the pictures showing where to solder those 4700 pF capacitors don't seem to be there any more.

    T-90 Elevation angle

    The T90 doesn't have elevation marks but there is a place on the back of the dish to put an angle finder to measure elevation.

    I thought it was but I'll have to check. Could be one of those "duh" moments!

    Volume level for AC3 audio using Sonic Voom headphones

    My CS5000 doesn't decode AC3 audio which is a bummer because the PBS channels on G25 are AC3. So I bought a set of Sonic Voom headphones to decode the audio. With these you don't actually use the headphones (although you could) but just connect the little box that comes with them to your...

    Question about equipment found - ChannelMaster dish and KU LBF

    I bought a bunch of Sadoun's KUL2's which in quantity they gave me for $12 each (list is $29 on their website but call 'em up and negotiate). This LNB is a dual linear. Duals are better than singles in that you can hook up multiple receivers to them.

    Diseqc and 22khz switches at end of 160 foot RG6 runs

    Man oh man I wish I had known this a coupla months ago when I had a big trench dug between the house and the garage. That was a lot of work and at least for now I'm gonna make do with the RG6 lines I have. I haven't tried substituting the Chieta 1.0 for the Digiwave 1.1 yet but that might...

    Bird with 3 PowerVU channels at 11900 V 13203?

    Thanks Iceberg and Cracklincrotch! When I got home last night and got everything set up it took me maybe 2 minutes to find G10. Without your help I probably would have spent a couple hours on a wild goose chase thinking I was on Satmex 5 when I was really on Horizons 1. Seems like The List...

    Bird with 3 PowerVU channels at 11900 V 13203?

    Ooh you're right, that is a good match. Thanks, guys! I guess all I need to do is pan a little to the left and up a tad and I'll be on G10.

    Bird with 3 PowerVU channels at 11900 V 13203?

    The transponders I scanned in don't seem to match very well with either Horizons 1 at 127 or Satmex5. I'm totally confused now, maybe it's some other bird. Can't get anything to line up.

    Bird with 3 PowerVU channels at 11900 V 13203?

    Last night I installed my Starband dish in a permanent location looking for G10. This dish is skewable and I find hard to aim for both azimuth and elevation. After blind scanning for a while I got signal on a bird that has three encrypted channels on 11900 V 13203 that came up as Channel #1...
