Satellite Reception trouble shooting

Post by chrs75 » Wed Apr 29, 2020 2:47 pm

I just got my 10ft cband dish working again. I noticed I am having trouble receiving channelsn I used to for example the Puerto Rico Network mux, the grit and laff mux to name a few. I can recieve some transponders like the light tv feed on g16 but nothing else. I have a traxis 6100 reciever and when I blind scan is shows transponders but not locking them. My question I think I need to replace my reciever. i am lookomg at the Edision 4k Mio. I think the feed is okay if I am getting reception on the satellites just not my favorite transponders. What do you think about the problem. Any information would be a big help.

Are receiving any signal quality on the mentioned transponders you were getting before?What kind of feedhorn/lnb combination do you have?The dish may have turned on the pole ever so slightly,which can throw off reception quite abit!

Hello,

I also have a 10 foot dish, mesh dish and Edison Mio+ 4k UHD receiver from tek2000. By trial and error I found that peaking the dish on Galaxy 27's NASA transponder (3920V 28068 SR DVB-S or DVB-S2) works very well. Once the inclination, declination and zenith pole mast setting achieve a SNR of about 15.8 - 16.2 or higher on NASA's transponder, all the other satellites are easily found about 20 DiseqC points from each other (or so) for each 2 degrees of longitude separation. In other words, you should be able to move from 127W to 125W, 123W, 121W all the way to 87W. I only am able to receive satellites 139W to 87W, as trees are in the way for anything else. This works reliably.

Hope this helps,

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

Hello chrs75,

Regarding G27, does this help? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galaxy_27 . Hope you are receiving more transponders.

Cheers,

Good Afternoon Chrs75

Did you review your location surround?
If there a tower of communication movil, your problem is interference, 4G 5G, radar terrestrial etc
You can lose some transponders or all, the solution is a) LNBF with a good filter integrated 3.7 to 4.2 GHz, is very difficult found a reliable one.
b) Filter separated, all are very expensive.
