    how's the signal quality for you?
    For me the old frequency is a bit better, but both are quite weak, with a quality of 30-35 on the new transponder and 40-45 on the old one. Among the weakest Ku channels. Basically it's back to how it was before the change they made a year ago.
    According to the BVN site, the EIRP here in CT is 48dBW, and they recommend a 50 to 75cm dish. My experience is that with a 90cm it's borderline, with very little margin for rainfade.

    Satbeams and Eutelsat however show 46dBW on the panamerican beam.

    Bcrt203,

    My signal is very good here in New Mexico here's the information's...:)

    My dish size is 1.1 Meters.

    Old freq, 12.077 GHz, H is at 70% Bitrate: 5.787 MBs

    New freq, 12.090 GHz, H 73% Bitrate: 13.506 MBs

    Now the extra bandwidth to be used for is unknown at this time, and I am hoping they upgrade to HD and English subtitling but you never know though. :hungry

    The rest of the other feeds comes in well too mostly in upper 50 to mid 70's% at this time...
