BBC News HD just back on line 7.8dB with pixels
Thought all boxes running Enigma 2 would be about the same...it's a Gigablue QuadHi Richard, most boxes, I believe, start to break up at about 7.5dB for SD FEC2/3, A little higher for HD. As FEC goes up, ie. 5/6 you need more SNR. If your box works as low as 6.1dB, cherish it and buy another if you get the chance!
No.Thought all boxes running Enigma 2 would be about the same...it's a Gigablue Quad
& Lyngsat says 2F eu. Levels on 12422H very weak here in the north too, receiveable just 'now and then'. For example 12207V is immensely stronger.Can anyone help me out?
Just checked 12422H for the tennis coverage on the Red Button. Flysat puts it on 2F UK, Kingofsat on 2E Europe!, either way I´m only receiving 7.2dB on the 1.8m Fam. I get 10.5+dB on all other UK beams on 2F 2E etc.
Could be my LNB is just weak on this frequency.
Anyone else noticed anything wrong on this txp?
Astra 2F http://www.lyngsat.com/Astra-2F.html Christian rarely gets it wrong but the European beam is incorrectWhich satellite?
.I didn't think it was eu always thought uk, but why so much weaker than other uk txps?
Maybe higher frequency struggling more?
5.5dB is the value DB800S-HD tuner, but it is not the worst, depending on the SR used by tp without pixelation to 4'5dB.It appears I was wrong about the VU SE receiver limit. Although BBC News HD breaks up at 7.8dB, the red buttons are working fine this morning at 6.8db.
I also noticed Tururu gets a picture at 5.5dB
Depends on system, modulation, and FEC. Both are 2/3 FEC, but red button is QPSK, whereas BBC HD's are 8PSK. For any given FEC, 8PSK requires about 2dB more SNR than QPSK.Although BBC News HD breaks up at 7.8dB, the red buttons are working fine this morning at 6.8db.
