I’ll make a statement regarding your ‘curiosity’ about, I assume TVRO in the 1990s. You seem to be under the impression that Ku-Band reception was what the average satellite user went after, nothing could be farther from the truth. I couldn’t guess a percentage, but very few installations had Ku band capability in the 1980s and 1990s, and any Ku only reception was practically non existent, the only exceptions being commercial and some educational use. The average home satellite user used a C-Band system. ALL VCII and in the clear cable programming was on C-Band. To my knowledge, outside of message boards and BBS boards, there were NO wild feed lists for Ku-Band feeds in the 1990s. There were wild feed lists for C-Band in Orbit, OnSat, and SatelliteTV Week. You are asking questions that NO ONE REMEMBERS the answers to. If you were more interested in C-Band, and were more upfront about what you are wanting with all of this information, and didn’t try to CORRECT and second guess people who were THERE at the time, before you were probably even ALIVE, then you might get a bit more help. Frankly, the things you are asking about, no one probably even knew, and if they did, it has been 20 plus years, and no one REMEMBERS the answer to.
I remember quite a bit about the wild feeds on C-Band in the 90's because I hunted them. But our installer said there wasn't much available on Ku band when he set up our system in 1992, and he was right. So we didn't add it. JosephHolloway1998 it's time to move on, buddy. There wasn't anything you're talking about on Ku in 1998. None of it. Let it go.
