Hi,
According to its footprint, Eutelsat W6 at 21.6°E does not qualify as a fringe.
However, I am unable to lock on TP 11555H SR 5000. DVBS-2.
I do use a DVBS-2 tuner.
Are common universal LNBs the cause?
Would a precise L.O. solve the problem?
If so, how precise? PLLs are quite expensive.
Do I really have to go the PLL way?
In short, does anyone receive this TP?
How?
Thanks for your response

Hi Canofan,

I can pick up that transponder with the LBC FTA bouquet at 74% strength, 80% quality. They do show up on the channel list as HD however, which doesn't normally happen on non HD MPEG4 encoded transmissions on my Vantage. I would guess you fall under the same part of the footprint as I do.

No other tricks or tips I'm afraid!!
