I have not touched my KU Motorized dish in over 2-3 years, I have a 39 inch dish set up perfectly on the arc,

With everything that is going on in the world, and the bordem of sitting at home all day, I thought about getting back into FTA,

And hooking up my receiver again,

I have a linkbox9000,

just wondering,

Is there anything more out there then when I "retired" this receiver and dish 2-3 years back?

mainly looking for english feeds,

has anything changed?....or pretty much the same channels?

Can your receiver receive DVB-S2? If not, you need a newer receiver.

Added: A quick check indicates it does receive DVB-S2. On Ku, focus on 87W, maybe 91W, a couple tps on 97W, 99W and 103W. Then monitor the 'What's Up There' section on this site.

in a nutshell... yes and no... No drastic changes in 2-3 years. you can now get CGTN News in HD on 103W on the same TP as NHK and RT (new frequency so you'll need to do a blind scan)
a few changes on 97W with more channels moving to HD (mostly middle-eastern channels). Also BVN is now on 97W. The non-CGTN chinese channels on 95W are gone.

65W and 34.5 W now have a few channels ITC in lower Ku (need a universal LNBF), with footprints that might cover only small parts of Canada, if at all.

I watch them regularly, especially lately. On 97W and 103W respectively.

Added: LPB on 87W has BBC and PBS news every night.

thanks,

i got my receiver out today and hooked it up, after all these years the motor and everything still works perfectly fine,

i set up 97w first and scanned, then i set up and scanned 103w

im getting a lot of HD on 103w including NHK, but on 97w RT is only in SD 480i

i recall getting this in HD before, is RT now SD only??
