Has any one else noticed that these cards are not as sensitive as it first was.

I find my sat boxes beat the card, and that the card always used to beat my boxes.

Mine didn't show any sensitivity degradation for three years - until it went belly-up with an intermittent LNB voltage fault.
Now use a 5925, the USB version. No problems, and more versatile (PC, Laptop).

Well that's £200 down the drain then.

Tried a repair, but difficult with it in-circuit to locate the problem. Took leads out from the card, connected to the LNB circuit to check the sequence of events from card power-up to fault appearance, but it really needed extra circuit connections for a more thorough check. At which stage, patience failed me.

Way out of guarantee, so as you say, my loss.

Just found the PayPal invoice. 29/04/2014 for £179.00 to red apple digital. So if I can find the box, I might be lucky.

According to a report on Ricks the 6925 is now out of production, I've just checked and the TBS online shop is showing it out of stock.

First BBC one I've received myself. I did see your report of a 16APSK BBC feed on 23.5E. I suppose it's only a matter of time until broadcasters adopt this modulation permanently.

Hi,

I use EBS Pro with my TBS6925 card and keep missing some frequencies that a receiver always picks up. I asked the EBS Pro support if there was a fix and they advised me to set EBS Pro to use BL2 mode (blind scan 2). However, when I try this I get an error message saying my TBS6925 card does not support BL2 mode.

Is there any type of software update to get a TBS6925 card to support BL2 mode?

Thx

That sounds like your card has developed a well know problem. I was lucky enough that it was under waranty, so I was able to send it back, and it was swapped for the tbs 6983.

The problem is something to do with the power.

BLscan2 is part of crazy scan. Here is a link to download my version. With all its dependence.

Getting a TBS 6983. Due this week.
At a guess I presume the 5West Mulitstreams OK and 12.5West?
Can you blindscan for feeds.. If so which is the best satellite?

Thank you
