Anyone know of any transponders on 125w KU that are not DVB-S2?
I can not program my Birdog to hit DVB-S2.

12145 H
12155 H
12163 H

all 3 are not DVB-S2 however I can not lock.

Those transponders are not full time and they actually may be gone now. There are no full time DVB-S on 125W Ku any more.

Bummer.
Have any good solutions to tuning her in? Or am I going to have to drag the TV and receiver outside and go old skool?

Thanks

Yeah, that is what you are gonna have to do. Cheaper than a new meter.

Well I did the receiver method. Thought I could clear em.
Gonna have to go on the roof of the house with a non pen. Not sure I want to do that.
Can only pull 20-32% on the channel master 1 meter.

It doesn't look like the tree is that tall in the picture. When the leaves fall off it might be a better indication.

Im sure my neighbor would be super happy about that.

The tree is large. My smaller KU dish hits it fine but its also sitting back north 30 feet and 10 more feet of the ground. It clears it all.
I'll try messing around with it some more but I am pretty sure the tree is in the way.

Magic Static what size dish are you using and what are you getting percentage on 12155?

Thanks guys

Did you try other S2 transponders, now that you have the dish close?

Can't afford one of those fancy meters myself. Have an old VGA LCD monitor and using a composite to VGA converter from Monoprice, I take it along with my receiver and peak away. Since I no longer had any small CRT sets and did not want to purchase a small LCD TV, the VGA monitor and the converter which was dirt cheap made sense. This setup works quite well and everything is light weight. Don't foresee dragging a 40" HD set outside to fine tune dishes anytime soon! :).
