Do you have a link to that F15 receiver? I haven't heard of it. I think you'll find the Geosat receivers have excellent abilities on weak signals from what I've read on the forum here. They're finding some very low symbol rate-signals with the new MicroHD also.

Saw the F15 last year while in Germany, but didn't play with it. Have no comparison information.

According to their FAQ, about to be phased out and replaced this month with the F22 model.

You might wait and purchase the new model and provide a comparison test for the forum.

With the Micro Hd you can't go wrong. I for one was tired of buying crappy receivers with no support so I went with the Micro because Brian is standing by what he sells

While I don't think many people have experienced a direct comparison between the F15 and the mHD, Most folks with a microHD will tell you it's the most sensitive tuner they have worked with. Comparing the mHD with my AI Turbo S2 meter shows the mHD to be extremely sensitive and watching the mHD shows it to be very stable too. In fact the best thing about the microHD is "It just works!"

Having someone who supports the product is worth a ton. I was reading some on ebay earlier, to see if spotted any ads for that f15 thing, and saw lots of new import models, some brands I had not heard of before. I looked at one that seemed interesting, down at the bottom of the details was the statement : "We will not be providing any support for this product." !! Makes me really want to order one, lol.

Thanks for the info on the F15!

Maybe a SatelliteGuys member with a microHD and 55.5w could help you out with checking out those services before you buy.

Tanka - what are you using for dish & LNB?
How bad is your reception?
That info will be valuable in comparing your performance with others.

While I suspect the better receiver will help, optimizing all the components will get you greater safety margin.

hi
see you got no answer about 55 tp's
the new reggae jnn 3854 h 2220 s-2 is weaker than most and was before also weak before s-2.
do get them with a 8' with dual cband feedhorn 2 norsat 8520.
dual cband feedhorn's are best it is like............ cheating when compared to single lnb & servo.
have a 10' with lnbf it will not pick up 3854 h ......lnbf's not good lol
you will spend money on this FTA stuff why don't you try to get a used 10' dish or a nice ku dish and then you could have dual cband feedhorn on your 8' ?

wanted to send you a pm but your box is full say you have to delete some first
good luck
ps 3854 h MIA today nothing at all

Same here. Conditions have to be 'just right' to get the new S2 signals. Before the switch to S2 I could get it all the time. Although, when I get it now, the pic quality is better than before.
