Was talking to a CSR at Orby today. They have commercials set to go off in the lower 48 starting Monday.
Currently they only have commercials running in 3 states.

Hope user interface (GUI) is working better for most. They have escalated my problem but not resolved it.

I had issues trying to get a software update, but finally got that resolved.
They said if I used an official Orby LNBF it would have went without a hitch.
Something about the way it switches from 13V to 18V.
 
I had no problem till the other days update..now guide and info is delayd..and i liked bein able to look back in time of what was on...thats gone now..

Sent from my SM-N960U using the SatelliteGuys app!
 
I had no problem loading the update....invacom quad on 1.2 meter..

Yeah, I know, I am on a 1.2M also. I think it was just having issues and then just started working or they rebooted something while I was on the phone. ;)

I unpluged mine and it updated. But I wish they would sell the dish and lnb to me.

Saw one this morning while watching Maverick on MeTV, 101W.

I'd say North America Wide.

Is this footprint generated from the specific transponder readings or from data submitted for estimated coverage for the satellite license? A specific transponder footprint may vary considerably from the submitted footprint EIRP estimates.

The technical data submitted to the FCC is for the maximum transmission power for any given transponder since that it the data needed to do the interference calculations. It will be the actual maximum power for the transponder.
The operating transmission power will be at max or lower.
It's common for the spot beams on the 50-100 spot beam satellites to be adjusted to a lower power level to "tighten" the market area.
The big Conus type beams can be expected to be running at max power.
