HumaxCI-8100 losing signal


Regular Member
Hi Everyone.

Hope you can help me out here.

I have the above reciever runnning a motorised system.
All was fine until a couple of months ago, each satellite I had stored
on receiver started losing the quality signal!!
I would have to realign the dish slighty (via menu) to bring good quality strength back.It seems to be happening more frequently now!!
Is it a common thing to happen, or maybe a problem with motor(geotrack 1.2).
I mostly view Hotbird, astra1 +2, Sirius and Arabasat.

Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!!



I occasionally have the same problem with the DiseQc 1.2 on my Jaeger motor. I am set for Astra 1+2 and Hotbird. I occasionally have to reorientate the dish for one of these but never all three at same time. What does happen though on very rare occasions is that my dish swings way east to some limit beyond Astra 2 and stays there. I then have to refind all three sats individually because my recalculate-all function doesn't work properly. I think the motor gearing must be slipping.

Having said that, I don't find resetting such a big hassle. i'm simply relieved that I can still reset everything OK with a little button pushing on the remote.

By the way, have you ever come across any more sophisticated non-Humax firmware for the CI-8100 apart from the current April 05 stuff from Humax?
