    Best LNB for UK Motorised Dish & Weak Signals

    I bought an Inverto Black Pro C120 Twin LNB, for my CM 120, and it's still working perfectly after 6 1/2 years, unlike the expensive, WF100 underground cable, which only lasted 5 1/2 years, before it cracked, in a number of places, due to the weather. . The only problem I had, with the LNB, is...

    Technology Overload.

    36v actuators require a V-Box II, if using 2 actuators you'd require to run the 4 electric wires, x2, from your actators, to your V-Box II's, or controllers, then use 2 co-ax cables, from your V-Box II's to your twin tuner satellite receiver, to get it to work all from the one receiver. The...

    Technology Overload.

    Just connect to your receiver using Openwebif, your PC then controls the receiver, which controls the actuators. You don't need anything extra, providing you have an Enigma 2 receiver, which automatically connects to your network. Can a PC connect to your router, from your Den, or will you also...

    Technology Overload.

    You can run most technology, using the internet. Enigma 2 receivers can be viewed, controlled, and set up, using a virtual remote, using Open Webif, and probably other programs, and as your receiver can be linked to a network you should be able to access almost everything. What are you thinking...

    MOTORIZED DISH FROM SCRATCH - BONE QUESTIONS I'M SURE BUT....

    You set up USALS, on your receiver, enter your Latitude, and Longitude, then the receiver calculates where to sent the motor when you select 0.8W. In your case, as your Longitude is 2.7W, it should send the motor around 1.9 degrees East, so that when you align the dish on 0.8W the 0, on the...

    MOTORIZED DISH FROM SCRATCH - BONE QUESTIONS I'M SURE BUT....

    The receiver wont know if you're actually pointed at 0.8W, it will just scan in transponders, then you can check the channels, and frequencies, on sites like lyngsat, or kingofsat. Both dish, and motor, brackets are useful, for aiding in tracking the satellite arc, correctly. When initially...

    Filtering DECT phones

    It didn't matter what make of LNB, I used, still the same problem, it did ease, considerably, when I took the V-Box II out of the system, but as I need it I decided on moving the telephone. I assume you have tuned into a problem channel, like Sport 1, and unplugged the DECT telephone, as that's...

    Filtering DECT phones

    I had this problem with my set up, V-Box II and VU+ Duo2, in the end I ran a telephone wire, from the downstairs box, to the upstairs, where I placed my main telephone, and thus had the others no where near my satellite gear, this worked. I noticed it most on Sport 1 Germany, the FTA standard...

    New receiver recommendations

    I do know of one enthusiast who got his Fransat card working on his old VU+ Duo using Oscam and the receivers card reader.

    New receiver recommendations

    Which package do you have in mind? Looking around it seems reasonably quiet, regarding new receivers, with a few sticking with their old receivers, waiting for new models, to be released. I thought you'd found the best model, with the Mutant HD 51, a 4K receiver, at a good price, that seemed to...

    New receiver recommendations

    I've read differing reports, regarding CI+, even the VU+ seems to handle it, depending on the image used, but they're quite expensive. I'm enjoying my older VU+ Duo2, but find that I now use it more for viewing Kodi than satellite, and reports are that the blind scan isn't the best. I'll have a...

    New receiver recommendations

    Are you looking for a 4K model, that can handle DVB-S2x, blindscan, etc.., or a basic receiver?

    redoing SAT installation after strong winds

    What are your signal quality readings at your furthest East satellite? The dish might still not be perfectly aligned, for tracking the satellite arc. Once you've got it installed, and working, you send the dish to your far East satellite, and West satellite, and check if you have the best signal...

    redoing SAT installation after strong winds

    Please post your signal quality readings, and channels, of the transponders you can get. How did you set up your dish, for tracking the satellite arc? Tomorrow please take some clearer photos, and you might want to try peaking the signal quality, by using the motor to gently move the dish...

    Which transponders are you missing? Can you please list them. What are your signal quality readings, on the transponders you can get, can you also please list them, including polarity details.
