I have had problems with the Mercury II receiver for the last month after it first started flashing the channel number on the screen and losing the signal. Upon checking further I just had a blank screen on my TV. After a few days it began to give channel numbers when I got my screen back, and could only get channel numbers on satellites instead of channel names. The last thing which has happened is the receiver has lost all the latitude and longitude information and only gives the same channels regardless of the satellite and finding no longitude and latitude information. Finding this information is impossible and the updated software can't be updated since this receiver only accepts information through a R232 port. The new laptops don't accept the plug for this so all information have to be input manually into the receiver. Finding that information is tough so far. Lynsat.com don't give you the longitude and latitude information for each satellite and is wondering if there is any place to get it. I still have all the satellites in the receiver, but need the longitude and latitude information to manually install it. Can anyone help me with this information.
