    Refund from Best Buy?

    Anyone buy an "on sale" Orby receiver from Best Buy before it was known they were useless, and tried to get a refund? I've been thinking about giving it a shot but the store is about 35 miles from me. Checked my receipt and bought it 12-18-20, and looks like they only refund for 15 days and...

    New meter..........

    Just bought a new SATLINK WS-6933 meter, and it works well except for 1 thing. It doesn't calculate the look angle correctly. For 103W in my location [85.3W 44.6N] it gives an azimuth of -155.6 when it should be +205, which of course is thousands of miles off. The elevation and skew are...

    Is anyone familiar with this meter?: SATlink 3.5" DVB-S FTA Data WS-6906 I presently have a First Strike FS1 meter and I'm somewhat sheepish to admit I don't know how to get the best use out of it.

    Looking for a reliable channel editor....

    I have a Linkbox 8000HD Local receiver and am looking for a channel editor. I found an Ali channel editor but it won't let me enter PIDs and doesn't download reliably; that is, what is on it isn't always what ends up on the receiver. Also, when I edit a channel and click out of it, I get a...

    Funniest thing I have heard so far today.

    I just finished reading an article in an online Brit "newspaper" about the possibility of NASA sending a mission to Mars and leaving the astronauts there forever. Someone wrote a comment suggesting they send politicians instead! ss
