Since I can't get Hispasat from my location (due to trees and dish hitting brace on mast) I have to use PAS9 for Cubavision.

Now I know you need a Universal but I don't have a Univeral dual LNB so I'm using a Standard dual. I heard something a while back (PSB might have said it) that you can scan it in with a Universal, swap to a Standard and it still will work.

Has anybody tried this and better yet....had it work properly??
I tried to change my LO to 10600 with a Standard but that didn't work and I cant enter the low band frequency oin the Coolsat with a LO of 10750 (it says invalid)

Yes, it worked for me. Scanned in with the Universal, switched to a standard and Cubavision was still there :)

so you change the setup to a Univeral and change the LO for PAS( (10600), scan in, swap LNB and leave the LO the same?

Ice,

I believe ( I haven't tried it) you would have to change your LO freq. But that would miss up the other channels on that satellite.

I guess the search button was my friend...found an old post and you mentioned changing back to 10750 when you put the standard back on

won't work :(

and it has nothing to do with the LNB...its the box

went outside and climbed on the roof (damn its hot out) and swapped the LNB to the Fortec Universal. Logged in Cubavision via 10600 LO frequency

Went out, swapped LNB back and came in. Changed the LO to 10750 and nothing. No meters on the Coolsat when I switch to 10750 LO. As soon as I change back to 10600 the bars are red and moving . Change back to 10750 and they disappear :(

so it won't work....oh well. No Fidel Vision for me

Chicago suburbs.
Cubavision Intl on PAS 9 is ok if you have LOS issues.

But If I remember well, you once had Hispasat locked in, you should really give it another try.

Last night Cubavision hada great movie night, typical for summer weekends.

Anyway one of the channels was playing King Kong the new one in English w/ spanish subs. and right after they played The History of Violence which I thought was pretty good.

Not bad for FTA, Thank You Mr. Fidel
