I think so, at least if you're in Georgia,Is Anik F2 the only Shaw Satellite available in the US? I thought that there were 2 satellites. But, I'm only getting one. I'm in North Georgia.
Thanks for responding. The channel I was referring to was 782, from St. Pierre et Miquelon. It used to be called RFO, now it's "1ere." I had been getting it until this summer but sometimes I have to realign my dish, so wasn't sure of the cause. Your report of losing a fresh batch of stations last month is very helpful and parallels my observations. Merci.I believe it was on July 14 that numerous channels disappeared from Anik F1R forever.
I have a legacy French Programming Package that contained everything the was available in French, but I'm not familiar with the French channel you mentioned. What was its channel number? I will check to see whether I can receive it or not.
Many of the French channels that were in my original package disappeared over the past three years as they were migrated to Anik G1.
OK, I DO remember receiving RFO at one point in time, though I never watched it, so I don't know when it no longer became available. You are likely aware that Shaw has been moving channels to Anik G1 in phases during recent years, so we have lost many of the channels in our package. For example, we lost Prise2 several years ago; TVA Rimouski (our summer home) disappeared on July 14.
Both 737 and 782 currently show as lost signal and the red light on the receiver comes on, meaning the channel map is directing the LNB to access Anik G1, and we are outside its footprint.
Just as an example, on 751 my signal level is 90 and the Ecb is 6.5. Our latitude is about 33.4 degrees.....roughly the same as yours, and we are well outside Anik G1's fooprint. But Anik F2 is currently coming in as strong as ever.
All that being said, I'm assuming you currently have the newer Xku LNB on you dish? If you still have the older quad LNB, you will likely have additional problems receiving the channels in your package.
