    I found this modulation scheme listed on lyngsat under Galaxy 3C Ku. Looks like it's used for a popular DBS provider.

    Thanks

    DVB-S2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Why the D after S2? probably to denote that it's an "in house" modification of the DVB-S2 standard. I figure the move to DVB-S2 is because their digital format(DSS) must have an issue with bandwidth/ compression, and therefore quality, and have found the DVB-S2 format a better alternative.

    DVB-S2 allows you to put more channels in smaller bandwidth

    DirecTV uses DVB-S2 with some wrinkle I have yet to figure out because I've been unable to lock onto their flavor of DVB-S2 with my TBS 6925 card (while I've been able to lock onto pretty much everything else DVB-S/S2 in the sat arc including Directv's legacy DSS QPSK signals that you can find on the same Ku-band sat as DirecTV's DVB-S2D signal).
