    My mom misses her show Wyatt Earp they took it off cozi tv in the morning. My mom loves the Adventures of Wyatt Earp does any of the channels carry that program plus any good westerns? She loves her westerns in the morning expect for lone ranger she shuts that one off.

    Yes it is the one with Hugh O' Brien. Can that one be picked up on a mini bud?

    Now that I don't know.

    BTW: Grit is also available OTA in some places. I had it back home. Only get 2 channels with subs here in the hills. This area suks for OTA. Grrrrrrr.

    I do get METV OTA... that has lots of Westerns.

    Not likely without at least a well-tuned 7.5ft dish.

    Wait, it's on FREE Youtube. She can watch until she drops. Get a Chromecast, and cast it to your tv. Or use a Roku. Click on the bottom right "Watch on Youtube" after starting the video below, and this will go through all episodes:

    Here's the specs. See the issue? 3890 H DVB-S2 8PSK 12500 FEC 5/6

    You need a minimum C/N of 9.4 for dvb-s2 8psk with a fec of 5/6, and that's impossible with a minibud.

    You can always switch to This Tv on 99w, and she could watch 'Bat Masterson' instead.

    3827 H DVB-S QPSK 6650 Fec 3/4 You only need a C/N of 5.5 for this channel. That's doable for a minibud.

    Dan,

    The complete series run of The Life and Legend Of Wyatt Earp is available on DVD from Amazon.
    Your mom can then watch it whenever she wants.

    Dan,

    If the complete series set is too rich for your blood right now, you can also by the episodes season by season for less.

    On my 1.2m, I have only ever been able to receive the Lesea mux and Shepherd's Chapel. Maybe danristheman will have more luck, but I've never seen a blip on the THIStv transponder

    Not to detract from the original question, but are others with mini-BUD's getting more channels on 99W? Maybe I need to tweak my LNB skew...

    Well, spec-wise, it should be doable with a minibud. Same specs as the Lesea mux. As for the Shepherds Chapel, that's dvb-s2 8psk Fec 3/4, which means you need a C/N of 7.9, that should be harder to get. Perhaps they are doing something else with the signal, not pushing full power, etc. Just goes to show that "you have to try, to see if it works for you" still holds sway over this hobby.

    Yes, I noticed that Shepherd's Chapel is DVB-S2 and I was surprised that it comes in clear as day.

    Perhaps this thread explains why I can't tune that mux on 99: 99w mini bud.

    With a mini-bud, you have to peak on each transponder. Ten years ago, I used to peak on 3820 91 west for the fox movie channel with the one metre wineguard.

    To get 3800, I would have to move about 1/32 inch west. The Word channel was so strong that I used to get that at zero. Yes, the picture was fine. Had the CW mux at times, but the Fox muxes were stronger. So, I would peak for the thistv transponder.
