Seems like he's expecting 1 hour service, with an older Chinese built sat finder, on a holiday weekend.Why would a pregnant woman be pole vaulting?
I mean if your 6 weeks pregnant maybe………
But you don't understand.. I'm going to miss The Gong Show!
These are pretty limited these days. They don't support DVB-S2, so your signal options on each sat are pretty limited or non-existent.
As suggested previously, use Lyngsat or Tvrosat to find a sat/transponder that it can receive and plug it into your meter. It's pretty easy on these things. They are just a cheap STB with a screen.
I've considered the limited signals and other points you made.I totally get what you're saying as well, but since DVB-S signals make up less than 10% of the signals up there it would not be hard to just look up the few DVB-S signals that still exist, write them down and add them to the meter.
The other problem with tuning a DVB-S channel on that meter is that it is easier to receive than a DVB-S2 channel and therefor you might nail the DVB-S channel on say Vertical and still not get the DVB-S2 channel that you actually wanted to get on that satellite on say, Horizontal.
Having said that, that meter also works as a mini tv, so you could plug your V7 into it and just tune and peak with the V7 and forget about using it as a meter.
My bad. I left the editor out. Try this:Allrightey now. Relentless as you are I think I found something for you.
An OLD USA sats. list and the editor for your 6906.
Probably install the editor as Administrator. I got an error but was able to open the .ssu file in it and it showed a list of US sats. Have fun.
My bad. I left the editor out. Try this:
Thanks for your efforts. I went as far as I can go without a communicating serial port.A few thoughts.
A few Google search queries would show one method to get your com port reassigned to another number.

Dig in the bin and find a 32 bit Windows XP/7 computer. Probably the best way to battle dinosaurs with dinosaurs.
Go in your BIOS/UEFI and turn off a USB controller and reboot and see what ports then show?
Yeah. That's the datbase tool. Use it to open the .ssu file and edit to your hearts content.
Probably the most bulletproof method is to grab your database from the box and edit it that way.
Or if using the .ssu file I attached first verify your ssu file....or whatever comes off the box....and make 100% positive all settings pertaining to your box are duplicated before writing. Hopefully if something isn't hunky-dory you'll just get a write error or fail to upload to the box.
Did. You have a learning curve to attain. You'll either figure it out and succeed or not.
It's a friggin' old, and even though it turns on and works, obsolete piece of equipment.
Probably proven by the fact that any USA .ssu files I searched for you. Are millennium's old.
Yasoo re'malaka. Ti kaneis vlaka? Thelo mio Amstel kai souvlaki parakalo.
Greek. Probably a bit less ancient than your sat. meter.
I lived in Greece. Might as well learn the lingo. Right?
Or as us PA. stump-jumpers say with old stuff. Pull!....**BLAM**.
