Hi everyone...

I am just hitching a ride in this forum, just long enough to learn all I need to learn about FTA…have many friends that have it (PANSAT 1500 receivers with stationary dish’s), they love soccer and so do I…I am not sure where to start but found all suppliers of FTA receivers…so where can I ask some general question about FTA systems, and setups?

I want to be able to record so I am interested in all PVR (with no HDD installed) receiver’s…here are some features I am interested in…Viewsat PVR 7000, Dreambox 7020 Receiver, Pansat 6000HXC,etc…

Smart Search or Blind Search (Power Scan)
Hard Drive option (for XX Hours of Recording)
2 Tuner Input
10,000 Channel and 100 Satellite Programmable
USB or FireWire interface for quicker downloads
Real Time Clock
2 Common Interface Slots
PIG/PIP

Satellite dish options, something I do not have to install on a roof…prefer to install on ground, with a motor or without, what is the advantage of having a motor vs. not having a motor.

What is the difference between dual or single or multi LNB setup, what is the purpose…some basics are required…please.

That is about all I need, except perhaps few donation (pun intended) to buy all the goodies I need to get up and running…
 
Hi everyone..

WELCOME TO SATELLITE GUYS

they love soccer and so do I…I am not sure where to start but found all suppliers of FTA receivers…so where can I ask some general question about FTA systems, and setups?

I recommend you read up in FTA/MPEG2 Equipment Reviews for info on FTA receivers, and the Fta MPEG 2 FAQ section.

…here are some features I am interested in…
10,000 Channel and 100 Satellite Programmable

Hate to break this to you but 10,000 channels is quite an exageration and I don't think you'll ever get to program more than a couple thousand even if you scanned all, and even then most are encrypted

… what is the advantage of having a motor vs. not having a motor.

Advantage is ONE dish ONE motor and if your LOS (line of sight) is good , a chance to point to many satellites VS. many dishes many Lnb's and you spend many $$$$$$

… What is the difference between dual or single or multi LNB setup, what is the purpose…some basics are required…please..

Dual Lnb allows 2 receivers to be hooked up to dish independently, if motorized only one receiver may move dish.

Multi Lnb setup (on Fixed non-motorized Dish) is various Lnb's spaced apart to receive various satellites (birds)
Example on some D.Network antennas 3 Lnb's point to 110 , 119, and 121, each of these Satellites have different channels and when combined give you a grand total of channels without using a motor or various dishes.

Ford - Are you saying you haven't updated the entry for FTA in the HHGTTG? Don't Panic! "Mostly Harmless" will suffice.

It's worth spending some time reading the guides and posts on FTA in this forum. The information here is just what you need to make equipment decisions. The easiest way is to check out packages offered by sponsors at the top of the page. If you're still trying to get by on 5 Altarian Dollars a day you may want to consider some used equipment.

You should also determine which satellites you want to receive. You can ask your friends or check the lyngsat charts to see what channels are where. If everything you want to see is on one or two satellites, then a stationary dish(es) would be fine. Otherwise a motorized dish is the best bet. I have been happy with the programming I receive without a motor, but deep down inside there's a part of me that knows I will eventually get one.

There isn't any reason why you can't install your dish on the ground as long as it has a view to the satellites you want to receive.

Jayelem is right about the 10,000 channel specification. Think of it as something the folks in the marketing department of Cyrius Cybernetics would write.

WELCOME TO SATELLITE GUYS

Thank you and everyone that has welcomed me to this forum.

I recommend you read up in FTA/MPEG2 Equipment Reviews for info on FTA receivers, and the Fta MPEG 2 FAQ section.

I definitely will browse all the areas you guys suggest…continued education…

Hate to break this to you but 10,000 channels is quite an exageration and I don't think you'll ever get to program more than a couple thousand even if you scanned all, and even then most are encrypted

I was just exaggerating knew fully well I get a laugh out of that one…one of My friends gets about 500 channels...

Advantage is ONE dish ONE motor and if your LOS (line of sight) is good , a chance to point to many satellites VS. many dishes many Lnb's and you spend many $$$$$$

This would be an option I would pursue…maybe I will setup the dish on top of the house, I am worried about the power to the motor...just roofed the house do not want to drill holes in the roof, maybe the garage roof would be a better alternative...I would not mind drilling the garage roof.

Or I could just byte the bullet and buy coolest 5000 receiver and a dual LNB setup with a 30” dish, and then later get into something more expensive…by that time I would be much wiser or educated.

Dual Lnb allows 2 receivers to be hooked up to dish independently, if motorized only one receiver may move dish.

That is what I thought that means...wasn’t sure...good explanation, thank you.

Multi Lnb setup (on Fixed non-motorized Dish) is various Lnb's spaced apart to receive various satellites (birds)
Example on some D.Network antennas 3 Lnb's point to 110 , 119, and 121, each of these Satellites have different channels and when combined give you a grand total of channels without using a motor or various dishes.

Thank you, that is exactly what I thought it means...

heheheh that is what you get for this subterfuge...

Thank you techpuppy for all the information...I will definitely disappear for a while into some serious reading. :)

BTW ..."Jayelem is right about the 10,000 channel specification. Think of it as something the folks in the marketing department of Cyrius Cybernetics would write." no just the PANSAT people...when describing their lattes offering...6000HXC! :)

I would like to add channels from Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Germany, Spain and England I have to watch Manchester Untied, Real Madrid, Hertha Berlin and Intern…soon as I find the channels that have soccer highlights or games…these above I was able to find pretty fast, the rest I am having problem finding...:(
 
I have found Soccer matches on
Hispasat 30.0 West Spanish League
IA-6 93.0 West Mexican League
IA-5 97.0 West Little Bit of Everything

If you setup a Big C-band Dish, I know theres a Real Madrid Channel.

As long as your dish is the proper size and you fall in the footprint for reception you will be fine , and Bigger is better.

Thanks jayelem, hey I am located in Milwaukee...and I found this information on the net are these all the Satellite I can view programs from my location or is this what you call my footprint for reception? Or are some of these birds scrambled or not FTA? How can you tell which birds are FTA and which are not…as for C-band dish I need to read about dishes, I am leaning towered a 1m dish with a motor. Can C-band dish be used with FTA receiver? My yard could handle 1M dish, is that big enough to receive the channels that you found? Also I would like to sort all channels that I receive in a logical way I seen iceburg write about some program to sort channels by type of programming it transmits, i.e. sports within sports soccer, football, baseball, basketball, etc…, travel, cooking, etc…

Thanks jayelem, hey I am located in Milwaukee...

Satellite Name Long AZm AZ EL Band

Milwaukee I've been there a few times and one Miller Time also :D , your almost my neighbor.

Wow thats one big satellite list, well 1 meter is great for Ku and somewhat affordable after a 90cm (because of shipping costs the best deal in my opinion).

If you can use a compass, you can get a general idea of where your dish will be pointing and please remember elevation, so nows the time to look for a good spot, lookout for trees or buildings that might be in the way, and if you can place in an accesible place just in case you have to fine tune your dish.

I know youre in Milwaukee, but where wauwatosa, west allis, if you can give a Zip Code that would help, then PSB (Moderator) can post a handy list with your correct pointing angles, Hispasat has been a bugger for many here but you should have no problems getting it with a motor as long as your LOS is good.

Your satellite list is too big, it should be more like this one which does not include the Dish Network Satellites

It's a small world jayelem, what can I say almost my neighbor.

Wow thats one big satellite list, well 1 meter is great for Ku and somewhat affordable after a 90cm (because of shipping costs the best deal in my opinion).

Is 100cm too small or is it big enough? Can I pick up C-band transmisions?

Yes, I have a compass, I think I know where I am going to install this small dish...

YES, all receivers will do Ku and C-Band!

C-Band has a four digit Freq.

Ku-Band has a five digit Freq.
 
I purchased Coolsat 6000 premier black for $168 with card reader and shipping…

https://harmonyfta.com/

Ok, got a receiver, ordering FORTEC Ku-Band/C-Band Dish - 1.8 meter Prime Focus with polar mount ($239)…

Now does the satellite dish have to point in true south direction…and at what angle does it have to be inclined…I do not have a good place to install this dish…not much of a yard…I need to purchase a 3” o.d. pipe for the poll, not sure how high to make this dish in order to see above the house and trees? Install the dish by the corner of the garage? South is directly looking at the back of the house...and the Barbie house…
