I don't receive 3740V DW on 103W much at all. Just a glint now and then and there's not much to align to. Is there a good H or V transponder on that bird to help guide alignment to TP on 3740V? I have a 6 foot dish on the West coast. In the past, I've gotten DW with some success. I used a conical scalar for some DW viewing one time. Yesterday I tried to tweak, align and maximize signal to the PBS TP but that seemed to make DW reception worse. I use to get DW in the AM with little effort. Now it's nada.

Sorry to hear that, DW is a great world news channel, possibly better than BBC News. I am receiving DW on 3750 V 29270 at 103w. Comes in at 73% here in WI.

DW comes in fine here on a 10 footer. 73Q. But I can't get ION on 4040 worth a hoot. But does come in great on the SD channel. Go figure???

DW is ... Deutsche Welle. I was asking if there was a non PBS tp on this bird to help me align my dish for Deutsche Welle TP on 3740V. It's good to hear that folks report. The foot print is not out of bounds for where I live. So what setting are being used? is the tp DVB-S2? Are the rates correct on Lyngsat? It pops up during a scan but my receiver won't lock. Any hint?

Im getting it on 3740V 29269, I don't believe it is S2 as I used to get it on older receivers. Not sure what your trouble may be, have you tried deleting the transponder and rescanning it. Or maybe adding the channel manually using PIDS?
A=1130 V=1160 is what I'm showing for pids. I have seen some receivers just refuse to log in certain channels before, and had to manually enter them that way-then they work fine.

Sometimes its the video format used by the service provider which makes it hard for some decoders to pick the transponder
