OK thanks for that but while I wait for my SX88+ to arrive (SX88 sent back today) I am trying with my TBS 5925, as I say not a trace of any signal
I do not understand why you cannot get the NURTS Bulgaria multi stream from 39 east
Good signals here with a 88cm dish ?
Can you pick up The Voice on 12524 H 30000 on Hellas Sat @ 39 east ?

Nope can't get that either, my LNB has had it, very old now. been trying for years to get someone to change it over but impossible

If the Lnb is working OK on other satellites it may mean that your dish needs to be realigned better to improve your tracking of the satellite arc if your system is motorised.

Is the dish accessible?

If so, changing the LNB (If that really is the problem) is a simple DiY task.

Otherwise, have you tried Posting in our Installer Wanted section?

No it's not accessible by me, I need someone with a tall ladder, it's probably out of alignment yes

I tried to record with a 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive but nothing happens, I presume you have to use a USB hard drive ?
USB sticks and SD cards of 64GB, or more, come formatted exFAT which won't work.
You need to reformat it to FAT32 with 64kB (128 sector) cluster size. The default cluster size for FAT32 is too small for recording video, so you have to specify the cluster size when doing the formatting.
Do not delete or move the partition, or you may lose the alignment, just reformat it.
I have a 64GB SD card, formatted that way, that works fine with my Primo as does a 1TB disk with two FAT32 partitions.

EDIT It's likely that 128GB will use 64kB clusters by default anyway, so you may not need to specify it. It's more of a problem with smaller capacities.

Yes, I have a SD card that size too. It came formatted with 32kB cluster size, which works OK. It's if you reformat it that the cluster size would reduce to 4kB, probably, and that would make writing much slower.

Thanks I did this but the record button just won't work with me using a micro sd card with a usb 3.0 adapter - it senses I have a USB drive connected but that's all. Perhaps I need to update the firmware ?

You could be right. There are versions of the Octagon firmware with record disabled. Hopefully stephan94 can point you to the right version to use.

If you want to record with the official FW press the OK button then the red button one time to start recording and a second time to adjust the recording time.

I'd assume so ..... my Edision Primo drives a DiSEqC motor quite happily and bearing in mind the remarkable similarities (ie virtually everything but the case and connectivity) between the SX88 and the Primo, it'd be surprising if the Octagon fails in this respect.
