Is is shown as a free channel, but I cannot get a signal from the transponder at 11985V (SR=19510).

So is it FTA or not?

I do have a DSR4200 in scrap somewhere. Their website mentions one of these...

I typed in those coords manually and found nothing. I am doing a newtwork and then a blind scan to see if anything comes up. Midnight is a tough time for PBS, but I will search again in the morning if no one finds anything by then.

Without looking I believe that GPTV is a Digicipher Clear signal maening you cannot receive it with a DVB receiver.

GPTV is DCII....the only way to get that channel is with a 4DTV receiver

A DSR-4200 will work I believe, I have used a DSR-4500 to tune in Clear Digicipher signals and if the 4200 is a digicipher receiver it should work too.

yes
any dcii receiver that can decode them should be able to.

I have a DSR410 that can do DCII, but wont do these (it says waiting authorization) :(

For C-Band, there is analog...which the old anlaog receivers work with
Now that there is encrypted digital on C-Band, the machine that uses that is 4DTV

The analog receivers with the VCII (VideoCipher II) boxes will work with scrmabled analog channels (like it use to be and still is). But the problem is its one channel per transponder. Not much room there

So they came out with digital (DCII), where they can fit "muxes" of channels on a transponder (like 5 Showtimes) on a channel instead of using TP 1 for Showtime East and TP 2 for Showtime West. This is where 4DTV comes in. When authorized, it can unscramble the old analog VCII channels AND the digital DCII channels. It can also get the unscrambled DCII stuff and the analog free stuff.

The only stuff it can't get is the DVB stuff. thats where the Pansat, Fortec, Microyal's of the world come in.

Someone with a C/Ku dish, 4DTV and a DVB receiver is BIG PIMPIN :D:D:D
