    Hi all.
    Using a Manhattan DJ 1997 HD i can get TP 12145 SR 19999 pretty good with 85 signal and quality 64 plus but i can't get Cozi on 11760 or Nbc mux on 11880.
    I tried on 3 different dishes with no luck.
    Are they H 265? my stb can only get H 264.
    Thanks Bob. VE2FCZ.

    You mean on 103w? If so, no they are plain DVB-s2 8psk, H264 4:2:0.

    Perhaps you need a bigger dish, or better tuning.

    I have a dedicated 90cm dish parked on 103 and it seems the LNB has to be skewed pretty far to the right for me to get everything on that sat. Not sure where you're located, but maybe try skewing the LNB a bit.

    103W is a finicky bitch in NM. However, on the tp’s in question I’m good...my .76 out performed my .90 on that satellite

    Cozi comes in very strong, and the CNBC, MSNBC MUX comes in weak sometimes the signal break ups on my 1.1 Meter dish.

    That why 12.125 GHz TP is well known being weak.:rolleyes:

    Just looking at COZI now. ON the Openbox S9, the Q is 75 and solid on a 33 inch dish. I did have to tweak the dish due to very high winds this past winter. All the other TPs are very good as well.
