I get good signal (91) and good Quality (70) while scanning Sat 125W. Still I can not get to see a thing. For example TP for CREATE, V-ME, and PBS World shows a quality of 70 and signal of 91, still nothing comes up... Has anyone been having the same type of problem? Or is it somthing related to the LNB?
BTW, I get good receptions on all other sats, except on 83W.


please advice...

What kind of receiver are you using? Are you just getting a black screen on those channels?
I'd try deleting the channels and rescanning, if you're getting signal and quality readings that good it should be working. Unless you're hitting HD channels with an SD receiver.

Unless you're hitting HD channels with an SD receiver.

Create, V-ME and PBS World are SD channels, but there is a HD channel in the mux so his receiver could be hanging or operating extremely sluggishly while tuned to the HD channel.

I recommend a mux clear out in case of corrupt data, rescan the mux, go immediately to the TV channel list and delete the HD channel from the list so it can't be channel-flipped, then go to the main video viewing part of the receiver and see if the SD channels show up.

If the receiver can't do AC-3, they'll show up as video without audio.

Thanks guys!!! I did as skysurfer told me to do and got it going! Actually I did a FACTORY reset; hope to get Sat 83W as soon as I get to it.

I will have to go scanning from 125W to 62W. Once again THANKS!!!
