is it that you cant find those transponders in a scan, or you're having trouble locking on to a good signal? i find the art ones tricky little devils, i basically had to align to them specifically, and everything else fell into place eventually.

yeah right
but how come that transponder is the only one giving grief?? i mean i've got moreless 40% on it and never less than 90% on all the rest...??

so you reckon if i manage to get the old bastard i won't loose the other transp?

btw what's the score with the encryption of art? open or not?;)

''You can open almost everything with card share m8'' sort of leaves the rest behind and out of date.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I know of two people in W London that have similar problems, perfect signals on everything exept that transponder.

Both have different equipment, the second had a replacement dish, LNB and receiver, peaked on the satellite with a spectrum analyser, and still it drops out when the weather turns cloudy.

Whereabouts are you ?
