Is that helpful or did you mean something else?

I'm saving a separate copy of blscan.exe and .ini, streamreader.dll and .ini, along with Reports and Transponders folders for all sats in it's own separate folder. It's quite a bit of work but not much harder than making separate .ini files...I have to do that anyway. It keeps everything nice and tidy, and all I have to do is open the folder and start the exe and it goes....

HI Geezer, how does this software compare to STB scanning? For example, is it fast/accurate? When you scan some satellites, I'd be interested in how long it takes, etc. Thanks.

I was going to get you a screen shot of it going..but I can't get it to run just  one scan..LOL .  This program reminds me of what my 8th grade PE teacher said about shaving back in my puberty "challenged" days.. He said, "It's H.... to get started and H.... to get stopped..hehe

Anyways..I've set Loop to 0, set Loop to 1, rem'd the loop statement out, heck I even deleted both the loop statements and it's still a scanning over and over.

If I can slow her down enough to snap a picture I'll post it..LOL.

Edit...I deleted all the settings for Interval 1 and left interval 0 intact at the bottom of the .ini file and it got rid of the second scan.  Thanks for the info about where the stuff gets saved as it just goes 'poof" at end...hehe.  Left the Loop statements out as they seemed to not have an effect on anything.  Honestly it scans GREAT, but I'm still messing with it.

I've noticed that DiSEqC 1.1 isn't working with Crazyscan with my Digiwave 8x1 switch. Changing the DiSEqC settings has no effect. I can use Transedit to initialize a port and analyze a signal, stop Transedit, and Crazyscan will scan the port that Transedit just analyzed. I can push the "Set DiSEqC" button numerous times and it has no effect...still scans the same DiSEqC port.

It is supposed to scan H first, then go back and scan V, then the DOS box goes away and leaves a report in the Reports folder and a transponder list in the Transponders folder.

The program is setup to scan H first, but you can easily change that in the blscan.ini file. AC, are you getting my pm's? I've sent a few with no reply.

Ok, I know I ask a lot of questions, but hey, it really does work well.  I scanned in AMC1 in 5mhz increments, in order to see how it dumps info into folders.  However it would be nice just to have it stop the last frequency and let you scroll up and down in the  DOS window rather than pulling the data out of the folder.  I know it gives you all the info in the reports and xponder folders, but it seems a little more condensed on the screen.  If it would pause and sit and then wait for you to close it and then it would save info to respective folders.

thanks!

appears to work pretty well! i tried it last night and was impressed so far.

starman: how do you set it up to scan both polarities?

While it's possible for it to have it ask you for a keystroke or something before closing, Windows is set to automatically close these windows when they're finished.  However, there is a workaround.

Start menu -> run.  Type "cmd" (without the quotes) and press enter.  Then drag the blscan.exe onto the window, and then press enter.  It will run and then the window will stay up after it's finished.

Mine just opened the program in a new command window and executed it.  Then the second window closed when the program finished.  I can just pause it I guess near the end.

Try navigating to the directory containing BLScan.exe and then executing it there. So "cd c:\path\to\dir" and then "blscan.exe"

No sure about pause, but you can possibly stop running this utility if required by closing Command Prompt Window. 

Did you find any new sats with it so far?

Hi Mack, this is the scan part of my blscan.ini file, yours should be similar by default:

; Search interval 0 definition
[Scan0]
; Polarisation - 0;H;Horizontal, 1;V;Vertical, 2;L;Left, 3;R;Rigth
Pol=H
; Start frequency in Mhz, default minimum freq for selected LOFs
Start=3700

; Stop frequency in Mhz, default maximum freq for selected LOFs
Stop=4200

; Frequency step & search range in Mhz, default 5
Step=4

; Minimal symbol rate for BlindScan in KS (1000-50000), default 1000
MinSR=1000

; Search interval 1 definition
[Scan1]
Start=3700
Stop=4200
Step=4
MinSR=1000
Pol=V

There is a search interval 0 definition, that contains [Scan0] at the top of the file
If you look through the data you will see that pol= H

Look at searh interval 1 definition, that contains [Scan1] further down in the file and you will see pol=V....on the last line
Maybe you have [Scan0] or [Scan1] commented out?  Can you post your blscan .ini file?
I'm guessing your talking about BLScan and not CrazyScan?

thanks Starman345:
that's exactly what the problem was: i had the scan interval for scan 1 commented out. i removed the marks beside of that area,saved it and then scanned both poalrities just fine.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
