Hi Guys
I have seen these 4K feeds at this satellite, SES-6 @40.5W. According to Lyngsat, it is broadcasting this 4k feed over North America. My point is, what LNB will be required to receive this transponder? I did try my Titanium C2W-PLL (so far my best C-Band LNB ever) but even though it has an extended band, it goes only from 3.4 Ghz-4.2. Needless to say it did not work.

Thanks! I will try the 103 link. My only problem is that my neighbour decided to plant a tree exactly at a location that blocks everything from 103-121w once everything blooms. I means, I do receive those satellites only between November- April. After may are no longer available. One more question, I do have a Samsung 4k TV but, is the Geosat MicroHD sufficient or need a specific receiver, given the modulation scheme, protocols, bandwidth, etc?

I did a post last year about receiving those transponders from SES-6:

Titanium said he would have a LNBF for that band, sometime this year I believe. But try for SES-3 first.

The microHD won't do 4K. There have been a few threads about a STB that will do 4K. Seems there is nothing very solid yet. Most are using computer tuner cards.

There is also a 4K signal on the Ku side of Amazonas 1 @ 61W. At least it was there last weekend.
