    That image of open 8 is working fine for me. I see absolutely no point in blind scan, we know the transponder band plan, we know the symbol rates, there is a bouquet with all these already set up. However, there is also Open ATV6.4 as linked here in the forum by DH5UW https://forum.amsat-dl.org/ind…user-post-list/941-dh5uw/

    Loose connection so now BS works ok, no it's only useful if you are an occasional sat feed hunter with a motorised dish like myself... as for that image which Tomasz SQ6QV originally posted on the Q-100 fb group still like to know which one it is....he said it was from the Polish sat dxers forum, which I can't find anywhere...

    OK thanks for link unfortunately the image is not the one as the screenshot shows at all....and with me openeight 6.7 seems full of bugs, blindscan is not working for a start

    OK so I now have a SF8008 and also FYI a cheapo £35 Revez HDS620 receiver which tunes down to 10.492 and decodes feeds with 1000 sr and above, not H265 ones though


    SQ6QY posted this image on the qo100 facebook group of his SF8008 getting a 250k symbol rate feed but he won't answer me about what image he is using so I ask on here, anyone ? How has he managed to enter the correct frequency ?


    also ?!

    Interesting....Btw I find my TBS 5927 USB receiver with DVB Dream will tune fine down to 10.492 and with symbol rates down to 1000...so surely there are other sat boxes which do so also, shame it doesn't seem to be the SF8008

    No it does not do offsets. Unlikely perhaps. Yes you do need to modify the PLL, not because of stability but because the tuner will not work below 950 MHz. Therein lies your solution to offsets. Lock the PLL LNB with a variable reference and use that to compensate of the lack of offset tuning in the RX. I.e. The signal always appears at (say) 1 GHz as far as the RX is concerned.

    OK thanks for reply. How do I mod my PLL LNB ? DVB Dream gets the beacon fine btw without any LNB mod using my TBS 5927 USB sat receiver

    Anyone tell me why I can not get video no matter what I try ? I am using an axing 12v bias t with it's 12v supply but I I think I need a 14/18v pus is this correct ? I get SSB signals no problem with sdr console 3.10 but with demod neter get anywhere even though I see other do


    Please enlighten me someone many thanks !

    M1CTK . You need 14V for the narrowband Transponder or 18V for the wideband.

    If you can't supply 18V, just rotate your LNB 90°. You will still receive narrow band signals, but attenuated, because this way you changed polarisation. The wideband transponder should now be visible on sdr console. Fully zoom out to see the transponder over the noisefloor.

    OK thanks but I am talking about the demod program not getting any video feeds

    Anyone tell me why I can not get video no matter what I try ? I am using an axing 12v bias t with it's 12v supply but I I think I need a 14/18v power supply, is this correct ? I get SSB signals no problem with sdr console 3.10 but with demod neter get anywhere even though I see other do
