I have the same problem with the beacon , but i don't need it for decoding the beacon. it is a start to play with the settings of sofware
You are right but the beacon is always ON while the other stations are not always present. Right now I have time to devote to these tests but I only have the active beacon. This weekend will do more tests but I am satisfied that the program is starting to work here for me. Previous versions didn't work for me here for various reasons.
Of course I can also receive with MiniTouner-Express but it's not the same thing.
i have a universal lnb with a outside line amplifierjohansson 9604type(waterproof)
the line amplifier is direct connected to the lnb ..... mounted @lnb
so a additional amp is used to give a 10 db more gain on 743 Mhz
the line amp gives 18 db @2300 mhz , 13 @950mhz...
ok , you can ask yourself way? the s/n c/n stays the same ? yes.
have noticed that then the analog bb gain is set quite what lower in the software himself and the decoding goes better because i don't have to give extra analog bb gain from the rtl analog amp inside.... to see for example the orange waterfall on beacon coming on waterfall.
have done test with the line amp and without the lnb amp on beacon for example , in my case it was always better with the sat line amp inbetween. not a inline type
these are not waterproofwelded)
can someone do the same please as here noticed ? please share it or post it on this forum
is this info also better at your side with a regular rtl2832u?
the satrx (stb) is set to 10300 with horizontal polarisation 19 volt.
then the loop out from the same satrx (stb) has no dc , but only IF (rf) goes out
check/messure the voltage on the coax of the loop out , only RF (IF) may come out , NO VOLTAGE !
then connect the coax to the rtl dongle /rtl2832 /rtl2838
IU2KAC: locking takes a bit longer, but otherwise it's the same as with other signals.
Set the symbolrate, check if you have timing lock, then enable carrier recovery.
Try high gain and damping values for carrier recovery for locking and reduce both, gain and damping when you have a lock and see a constellation. damping can go all the way to the left then, and gain should be low. If it's too low, you'll loose lock again.
After that you can choose LDPC settings. I recommend gain values of around 2.
@ik1hgi Tony: to your screenshot; is that really the beacon? i've never seen before that a transponder is cut off like that. there is a sharp edge, and that shouldn't be the case. It almost looks like DVB-T.
Markro92 Hi this is my computer .. you said you did a new version 2.0.7 for the problems of Tony ik1hg in the message N #120 i, has this point will not present more info I do not know where the problem
I have a PC for 2 years but to see a DATV Beacon I don't go and get another PC now if I find some opportunities ok but new I don't think so I have 3 PCs 64 and a 32 thanks 73 Tony ik1hgi
