Because of their greater "data density" ( 8 datapoints for 8psk compared with 4 datapoints for Qpsk), and their sometimes higher FEC rates, the DVB-S2 8psk signals are more difficult to acquire than the standard DVB-S qpsk signals. Frequently it only takes a more finely tuned dish, but a larger dish is always better, too. Depending upon where you ARE in Canada ( big place, looks like to me ) , your 39 inch dish may not be adequate . I have a 1M dish in Michigan, and I have no trouble with the Ku DBV-S2 signals that I know of.

huh I have no issues with a 30" here in Minnesota

get LPB, OETA and Montana PBS on 125W just fine....LPB must have changed something because its a decent signal now all day and night. Use to go out at night

I think its narrower now , from 16.666 (the list) to aprox 12.4 SR (LPBS web) so maybe no interference now at night.
