Re: Satellite Reception trouble shooting

G13 is at 127W. Is there even a G27?

Re: Finding a 36v 24" actuator

Mine is on the right side. I live in south central WI, so the arm could be on either side. That said, dishes set up here seem to only use the right side. Far west is blocked by trees and I can't go far east either, because of trees.

Re: Finding a 36v 24" actuator

I ordered a 36" arm via Tek2000 and it arrived yesterday. The styrofoam packaging partially broke into pieces at the top of the arm end. No physical damage to the arm. I got it installed almost two hours ago. Unfortunately the accordion boot that came with it was the wrong size. Its hole is 1.5" whi...

Re: Finding a 36v 24" actuator

Is this place legit?

A 24" for $90, including shipping just seems unreal.

Finding a 36v 24" actuator

Boy, trying to find a 36v 24" reed sensor actuator arm is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. The Tek2000 site has none in stock for 12" dishes, i.e., heavy duty. Any idea where I can find one? The one I have is going south. I dare not try and move the dish anymore, for fear that it will get...

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...
