Hey guys is NASA no longer on AMC6?? I can't find it for anything today, can get the CW channels and Penn Cable, and a set of bars that say KSC-TV but nothing else......thanks
(search will not work for me either-everything I put in it says "Under minimum word length")

Turbo -

I recorded the landing and got the following press interviews with the establishment (not the astronauts).
... though, I may have that too, as I pretty much recorded all day, while I was gone.

Shall I send you a DVD before I erase it?

Thanks Anole, but not necessary. I was just curious since I couldn't get the signal, but I think it is a polarity problem. I have another complete feedhorn I can try, probl do that tomorrow. I thought they were still using both sats but wasn't sure.
Get great signal on those CW channels, for a 5' dish lol.

Yep thanks, forgot to follow this thread out..but I did get NASA going again on the 5' dish, may have been transmission problems after all, sounds like. After some tweaking with the dish motor, and elevation, swapping out lnbs and feedhorns I finally got a good steady signal. I knew it would work, as I had this tiny dish doing it last fall. Really need a good lnb to use a dish this small, esp with weaker digital. A wonder it works at all, hehe. Just fun to play around with.

I get Nasa on W7 virtical. But the signal is low. Very low. I have tried to adjust the dish (up and down) to no avail. I have a 10' fiberglass and get other KU and C Band very well.

Dows W6 have a better signal. Is it becuase I am in CO. that it is so low on signal?

sounds like you're scanning KU on AMC6

Scan C-band and you should get 8 channels
-Pennsylvania Cable Network
-3 CW channels
-4 NASA channels

check thelist at the top for the info....All are on Vertical polarity

I will double check that. I was getting TX loterey on C Band 22 NTSC but now I am not so I need to reture the dish since I have moved it.I get W3 ch. 20 University channel fine but not pulling in W6 anymore . But TX lotery does not transmit all the time.

Thanks

OK Iceburg,
I was playing with W6 today. And I got CH 22 TX lotery to come in on NTSC C band and the signal was 82
Best I could get was 84 signal.

So I switch the TP to 17 which is Vert, and I did a BLIND scan and scanned 4040 TP on the MPG2 and nothing. Cband that is.

About a couple weeks ago I got channles MPEG2 NBC SAT MUX CH1, NBC CH2, NBC CH3, MBC CH4, SURF LINK 32 PATH1 OV,
001 OV, -1 OV,
on Cband MPG2. Now nothing.

Any ideas?

Bob
I have an 8000 Sonicview.

Iceburg,
Do you think the same inline amp I have on the KU side will work onthe C band side if I put it on the Cband LNB and see if it boosts the signal?

I wouldnt use an amp.

It sounds like you dont have the settings right. make sure the LNB frequency is at 5150. I know on my boxes AMC6 seems to have both C & Ku freqencies listed in the receiver. Make sure the LNB LO is at 5150 and scan V only
