I forgot to include the EBS Pro signal analyser screen grab for the 40.5W transponder (3980 L, SR21600) in post 71, now attached below.

Well done with that lock, I think the Titanium LNB has the edge over the Zinwell in them polo pipes, just enough to get a lock on it. Thats a good result with a 1.8m dish to lock that one.

I tested both the Zinwell and the Titanium LNB's in a polo pipe and found that the Titanium performed better. I could not get a lock on 3980 L on 40.5W with the Zinwell LNB but the Titanium LNB locks it easy. Also for both these LNB with only the dielectric plate and no polo pipe I found that the Titanium LNB was better.

ok perfect thanks i already order the titanium to check i suppouse that the frec that i cant lock its due to some signals that disturb and wth the filters that titanium has maybe is solved. let see ...

The Edision Nino Pro receiver also managed to lock the ESPN Brazil transponder of 3980L from 40.5W in C band. The SNR at 8.8 db from the Nino Pro was not quite as high as the 9.1db I achieved with an EBS Pro scan last week but the signal seems to fluctuate.

I have attached a few pictures below taken from the Nino Pro running an OpenVIX image.

No, it was a 2.0m dish as indicated by "scopus" in his post above. It is only a temporary dish installation for a few weeks on a mobile platform so I did not update my forum profile.

Further tweaking had got me solid lock now on this mux with a steady 8.1dB. LNB is offset and using a 1.8 dish in the MidlandsESPN Lock.jpgP1010028.JPG

That is a nice result with a 1.8m dish, especially with the LNB offset from the centre focus.

@scopus

Nice one, thats a good lock at 8.3db with a 1.8m dish for ESPN Brazil. It looks like you have got the Nino Pro correctly configured and running smoothly with E2, well done.

Was the signal level of 8.3db obtained with the Titanium LNB in the polo pipe? It might be interesting to see what signal level you get if you did a direct swap over from the Titanium to the Zinwell on the El Nino? My guess is that the signal level would drop using the Zinwell?

Yes MB it's the Titanium and the polo pipe. I have tried many times to get this mux with the Zinwell, but it's having none of it!
This is a new Titanuim LNB, I have tried these in the past but not been too impressed, whether they have tweaked something in this newer version I don't know...
