My Humax 5400/CAM just manages to lock onto Sirius channels, but the Echostar 3000IP embedded VA can't even see them.It knows about the frequency etc. but can't find any channels. Anyone else had this problem?
nope, my ad3000ipva picks up all the Sirius fare both via the embedded CAM and an inserted CI CAM.
In any event, it's not the CAM which would be the problem if (as I suspect) the signal reception is marginal at your location. It's the threshold of the tuner. Perhaps the Hummer is a little more sensitive.
I wasn't suggesting it was a CAM problem just explaining the set-up. I seem to be too far South to get a strong enough signal and the Humax seems to have a better sensitivity. Would a better LNB on my 1.2 Gregorian dish pull in more signal?
i live near manchester, england, if u set the ad300ipva to 12039 on a viasses channel on siris then u should get tv1000 etc. not all channels but still some are better then none. the echostar does have a problem on 12056, it sees no signal like a lot of people are saying.
