Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by petfun4u(m): 3:13pm On Sep 01, 2011
Like I mentioned before, I tried 4 different LNB, PRime focus, Fuji, Premium 2 HD and Premium Super HD LNB. The result is here below by using 12207H27500 as primary frequency;
1. Prime focus did not give me any signal.
2. Fuji LNB gave me the signal up to 50%
3. Premium 2 HD gave a signal up to 53% to 54% (fluctuating)
4. Premium Super HD gave me up btw 54% to 55% (Fluctuating as well). There is another LNB I used as well which give me signal up to 51%.

I am presently using the premium Super HD.

I am presently watching 47 channels free including all MBC channels. I av 6 JSC Sports ( JSC sports 1, 2, +1, +2, +3,+4 and Global Sport) including AD Sport TV and two extra sports stations. I am still working on 11958V27500 where we av other JSC sport +5 to +11. By the grace of God, I shall record success.

I promise to furnish you with more details, because I am still working on it to see how I can boost the signal, if at all there is any other better LNB. I am still checking the market. Once I av my break through, I will commence my research on 90cm.

If anyone wants to try it, do so with either Premium 2HD or Premium Super HD, but rather the latter. U can use DAAR SAT Dish , because it is also the same type of dish size with what I am using. I promise you all more information. The only thing is get the time over the weekend. Remain blessed.

Gurus in the house,
I want to know if its posibu to track NILESAT in S/West with 1m dish, just like I read here that Some1 did in Abuja. I use to know that it can only be laid with big dishes.
Thanks

My brother for more details about Arryadia please kindly follow this link and read it throughout, you will have better understanding.
                                            https://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-562419.0.html.

Don't forget to take note of this advice as well
George_D:

Eutelsat W6 behaves more like an out-of-footprint bird here in the south-south therefore you may need
a good solid dish at least 1.8m to track. With a 2.4m mesh, you can only hope to get Arryadia 2 or 2M National (11653V, 15714sr) up to 50% signal quality max and that would be in very clear weather.
One tip: If you're really serious in tracking W6, try and do so in the mornings between the hours of 8am to 12pm. The signal is always better by then.

Good luck

@all, at some point peaple were researching the Spitfire LNB which they said was great but that talk has disappeared. What were the findings of that research? I ask because now the talk is all about Premium HD. Did Spitfire fail the test?

cHECK YOUR SIGNAL ON THIS FREQUENCY: 12207h27500, ALLOW YOUR lnb TUNED TO 5O clock for you to have signal up to 54% to 55%, then blind search your decoder, I am very sure, your are goog to go. Remain blessed.

Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by ftadream: 5:12pm On Sep 01, 2011
Lunsat,  for what I can say my brother,both spit fire and premium2 hd lnbs according to few notes taken so far,
they kind of do different work in quote.

According to I HACKED: with spit fire you are able to track from 75 W to 75 E with a motorize dish setting and have better quality in picture,
verified and confirmed.

According to Petfun4u: with premium2 hd or super hd lnb, you are able to track nilesat with 1.2m dish with good quality and about 45 channels,
which he supported with some pictures.

To me,it's up to you to choose one for what you intend  to do with. But I will like Petfun4u to try the spit fire as well to make a clear difference
if possible and give us details.

80 meters is too long so the signal may definitely drop. Get a Signal Amplifier to boost the signal and you are good to go,

all ų need is a "signal amplifier". This topic was treated long time ago around season 3.

I promise to work on the Spit fire and give the house feed back. But from my latest findings, I have the following information on Nilesa.;There are three (3) main Nilesat as mentioned below

In real time the Nilesat satellites are not exactly on same longitude ( Orbital position ).

Eg via tracking on http://www.n2yo.com/?s=36830|25311|26470|33750
Nlesat 201 is @ -6.98 longitude
Nilesat 101 is @ -6.86 longitude
Nilesat 102 is @ -6.96 longitude
While Atlantic bird 4A ( Nilesat 104 ) is @ -7.3 longitude

The image below shows the current longitude position of the individual Nilesat satellites.
Nilesat 201 is closets to Nilesat 102. http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6016/5884629848_b012da42d5_z.jpg

The lines drawn around the satellites indicates the orbits on which the individual satellite travel on.
Please note that satellite are constantly moving around their orbital locations.
In Summary,
Use Nilesat 102 for tracking Nilesat 201 as it is the closest satellite.

For tracking Nilesat 201 use frequency 11958 H 27500 Fec 3/4.

Earlier frequency 11727 H 27500 was the best frequency to track Nilesat 201 in Fringe reception areas but since the changed Fec on the frequency from 3/4 to 5/6, the signal became illusive in fringe regions.

For you to watch MBC HD, you will need their decoder. The channels are actually free, but on other receivers, scrambled, but on their own decoder, free to air. Technosat T786 decoder is for MBC receivers.

D.lee:

@ Ellahdarrell, Dstv scrambled all their channls on strong recievers early yesterday morning irrespective of people's subscription and I just confirmed that Rdv is also scrambled.

I remember mentioning here that the era of using Strong decoder to watch DSTV is over, since DSTV has identified a way of shooting your decoder down off their signal. A friend of mine showed me text message from dstv, in the message, he was told clearly that if he is no longer able to watch SS3 and other vital channels, this means he is not using DSTV decoder, he should therefore go and get DSTV decoder.

This is an indication that, once you are not using DSTV decoder to watch DSTV before, get ready to get one, you will no longer be able to watch DSTV channel again without DSTV decoder. What a cunning way of making money? e e e e e e e e e e e e D, S, T, V.
Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by petfun4u(m): 10:38am On Sep 02, 2011
Back to my discussion again,

The MBC HD channels can be received only with Technosat T786 decoder, the package is free once you purchase the decoder for 560 to 600 UAE Dirham.
it does not come on other HD receivers except Technosat T786.
Check this link for more info: www.mbc.net/hd
Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by petfun4u(m): 10:41am On Sep 02, 2011
Please, does anyone hear about this ES 21 LNB or ES 51 LNB, I have been trying to get one but uanble. This another set of LNBs described as been very good. If anyone have information of how I can get it, hit me through my email:petfuntech2010@gmail.com. Remain blessed.
Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by petfun4u(m): 10:44am On Sep 02, 2011
With inverto black quad LNB, you will all be able to track Nilesat easily and with good signal quality, but getting the LNB in our macket here in Nigeria proof a big proble. Anyone with information on how we can get it here in Nigeria? remain blessed.

Petfun4u, thanks for the initiative so far, you doing well, keep on exploring the sky,free to air is not
static as some will think it is,great job i will be happier if you track nilesat with 90cm.

Is is not the same technosat that infinity tv is using? But it is not Hd now. the pix is on multitv thread.
Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by GeorgeD1(m): 2:46pm On Sep 02, 2011
@petfun4u,
@Ameboperoo,
@All,

There has since been a work around for using STRONG decoders to watch DSTV channels.
Mind you though its for those with valid subscription and is not a hack.

Also, there are many forum members presently watching MBC HD channels with decoders other
than Technosat T786 so their website claim may just be a gimmick to force people into buying
their branded decoders.

Kungu from kenya posted some HD pics on page 169 of the official FTA thread part 5 (now closed).
I have reproduced them here for your convienience - and they were not from a branded technosat decoder.

Your best bet will be inverto black ultra lnb family, be it single, twin or quad for fringe reception. The advantage of inverto lnb is its ability to transmit over long distance about 70m according to expert review especially the flange. I am looking for this lnb too.

@ George_D

I think Kungu used the MBC Technosat HD Decoder. Is the Infinity HD decoder not the same spec, can't a unit to unit transfer be done?
Re: Free To Air Satellite Tv General Thread by petfun4u(m): 4:03pm On Sep 02, 2011
My people, I told you I am looking for a powerful LNB I can use to continue my tracking. I just returned to the office with one now. I wish to share this for any one who can lay their hand on it. It is very expensive but, the outcome of my research over the weekend will enable me share more of my findings. Here is the picture below and wish me good luck.
