    updates to G-3C On lyngsat

    Does anyone know why the front page of lyngsat with all the NA birds shows updates to the 3C bird, but you can not ever find what the change was when you click into the detailed TP page ? NOTE: all other birds on lyngsat seem to be fine...

    Access Television - FTA?

    Big question... can a previously subbed starchoice receiver get "other" DCII free to air channels ? or only these ones ? and... would a 4DTV receiver like a 922 get them ? I think so - right ?

    DVB terms and reciever questions

    I didnt know that DN did turbo - until i read more... it all comes together finally ;) CS8100 is DVB-S2 8PSK out of the box, which will get most of the current FTA channels out there (not sure about feeds)... and DN - which has a few FTA channels, uses turbo 8PSK which the CS8100 will NOT get...

    DVB terms and reciever questions

    I do not see how the CS8100 does 8PSK... it does look like it does the DVB-S2 MPEG4 , but only using QPSK ? is this right ? also - some articles are reading (e.g. TS in france experiment with 8PSK in 2003)... that there is a thing called turbo 8psk ? is that just a fancy name for 8psk ? or do...

    smallest C-BAND dish

    Excellent news... looks like its worth to have some fun with the 36 incher and see what C band I get... my goal is to reduce the amount of motor movements I need... and using small fixed dishes takes up much less room than a bunch of 6 and 8 footers... have to see what comes in strong enough...

    smallest C-BAND dish

    I have been looking at some footprint charts on lyngsat and investigating (google) some C band dish size discussions on the net... it appears that people have picked up C band channels on a 36 inch dish with a C band LNB... From what I read - there seems to be many birds with muxes that are...

    AMGTV and Ku

    excellent - makes sense... and she did mention about the affiliates... so that makes sense too thanks very much... PS> I think my friend watched the KU uplink channel, because that was how I caught on... he watches G25 for its foreign content and liked AMGTV when it was there

    AMGTV and Ku

    still dont know why KU is more money than C band for these providers. AMGTV seems to be saying that they can not afford the KU band prices... and by the looks of how much they have moved over the last year... started in KU, then to a few C band TPS, it looks like they are always bargaining for...

    AMGTV and Ku

    4dtv fixed output

    That would be a good idea... I live in Silicon Valley... I could drive 50 miles in any direction... What I wonder though - If I get the maps... would someone like NPS be able to send the hit via X4 ? or would a hit also be an issue... I think you need hits every so often - right ?

    4dtv fixed output

    I think 44/99 is OK for signal strength ? but I did not get a digital lock on any channels... not even sure the receiver is working... bought it second hand... need to find a good TP on X4 to ensure digital lock tests... any ideas ? also - it all doesnt matter if I can not get a Hit or...
