Hi! I have a few questions about FTA channels. So, here's a few...
Qubo - After hours, around 10 CDT, they air Rupert... The nostalgia, from when I was only 5, is killing me. I also recorded certain shows on this channel for my neighbors, I used to be able to get this over ION KPXD in Rockwall, TX. I moved, and there is no ION station here. The only transponders with ION and Qubo are C-band. I am KU only. Is this available on Ku band, and where?

MeTV - My parents like this, and so do I (only for the Star Trek!!)

Antenna TV - Like MeTV, but a few more shows

Those are all for now - thanks for your help!

Qubo is c band only, on 103w. MeTv is c band only too, on 99 and 101W. Antenna Tv isn't ITC on any of the sats.

ION mux (Qubo) is fairly strong. Would a mini-bud work for you? How big is your Ku dish? Could you fit a conical scalar and C-Band LNBF on it?

I don't know what a mini bud is, but if it can receive C-band and it's fairly small it would work

Mini-bud is a term applied to offset Ku dishes like yours, fitted with C-Band LNBFs to receive high power C-Band channels. Some folks are limited on the size of dish they can put up and will try to get what they can with the mini-bud route. A member here " danristheman " is proficient in mini-bud use. ;) Search his posts.

how does one determine a strong transponder for a mini bud? i believe one is no DVB-S2.

So, would this work on my GeoSatPro?

Yes, and you might be able to receive one or two stations on 99w depending on the beam strength where you are located, but that's about it. Mini-bud should really be at least a 4 foot dish MINIMUM, otherwise you are just fooling yourself. You will NOT receive any DVB-S2 transponders with a mini-bud.
