Re: Multiple feeds

Sorry, but it doesn`t work that way. There is so much confusion out there between the performance of a mesh vs. solid antennas that it`s pathetic. Sorry, but I'll have to disagree. I have been dealing with a person who has been in the satellite business for years. He work for a satellite dish manuf...

Just wondering, I have a 10ft. mesh Cband dish and an extra C band and Ku band lnb lying around.
Is it C-band only mesh dish, or a dish that is cut for Ku? If the mesh holes are too large, the Ku signal will not reflect off the mesh, instead going thru the holes that are only cut for C-band.

Unknown signal on G19/22

Transponder 22 is normally used by CBS. This morning I discovered a carrier on 22 (4140H). Using the TBS-8922, I did a blindscan, using Crazyscan, and it reported the SR as 29860 (normal CBS DVB-S2 SR), but it could not figure out what it was (not 8PSK). When I tried tuning it, it tried to lock, but...

Re: Has NBC news gone to 4.2.2?

103W 12080 H 30000 Audio but no video for me. Thought they might have gone BISS, but TSReader shows them fine. Have these gone 4.2.2/h.264 like CBS? Anyone picking them up? :spin Nope H.264. If it were 4:2:2 TSR would not display video thumbnails. I get video thumbnails with TSR. I can send it thro...

Re: Sun Outage in Effect till early April

The solar outage period is over and done with. For example, here is the chart for G19 at my location. The peak day was March 3rd. Use the link at the bottom to check out various birds yourself. Predicted Outage | Start | End | Duration | Start | End Date | GMT | GMT | | CST | CST mm/dd/yyyy | hh:mm:...

TVRO is a fascinating hobby and you get to watch free TV too. Who could ask for anything more?
I do not go after any of the FTA transponders, as I cannot stand commercials and snipes and bugs. I go after the Canadian feeds (a vanishing breed) and the backhauls of awards shows, etc. But, that is me.

What they have on record doesn't look right to me for North America.
Ya, it is missing all of the dishes that the TV stations have. Plus all of the uplink sites.

Only a 1.2m ku offset will pick it up, or in my case, a 12-footer with ku lnb riding shotgun.
Too weak for my offset ku aimed at SES3 NBC.

Re: CBS moves to MPEG4 / 4:2:2 Subsampling

Since CBS uses the full transponder bandwidth and dedicates more information to video luminance and less to color, they will be putting out the best picture quality across the entire Clarke Belt! IMHO, it is a total waste to go 4:2:2. By the time the home OTA viewers gets the video, it is bit-starv...
