Hi
My motorised dish got knocked out of line in the gales last week and I've just got round to fixing it. The problem is although I have realigned it and can see a signal on 13e. 19.2 and on 28.2 on my meter. Progdvb only shows signal strengths on some channels these give a good picture but other channels, that worked fine before, now show no sig strength and no picture. For instance Multvision is fine but nothing at all on TPS. I'm confused....any ideas?
Regards Barry

Thanks for the reply
I have deleted my old progdvb and reinstalled the latest version and done a scan on 28.5 and found plenty of channels both horizontal and vertical including all the Sky movies sport etc but no BBC or ITV (except ITV play)

Further to my previous I have now done a scan of Hotbird which has found many channels but not multivision or TPS . Signal level on the channels found is between 45 & 70% so I think the dish is aimed right

firstly you need to check that all of the transponder frequencies are present in your list, then if they are, try scanning an individual transponder for the missing channels, you will possibly find that your alignment is not as spot on as you think.

Thanks Rolfw, I have checked that the missing transponders are in the channel list and also entered the parameters in manually and done a scan of for instance the TPS trans on 10.758 V 27500 and found nothing, no signal strength shown at all. other transponders on nearby frequencies are ok.

thanks Guys
After an afternoon on the garage roof I have got it all working again. Took every thing down and started again. As Dave says I think the main problem was the elelvation
Thanks Barry
