I tried the SR1 on the router feeds yesterday and Emil tried his on the CBC O/V feeds and we both saw what was like buffering.  It would play smooth for about 3 seconds and then do a quick speed up for 1/2 second and then smooth for another 3 seconds and speed up again.  I remember this sort of effect when the Openbox S9 first came out.  Well send the information to DMSI and see if it something they can correct.

Picture quality is a bit soft on most of the HD feeds as well.  Did adjusting with the SR1 settings and got better to me and another user, but still a bit soft compared to some of the other receivers I am used to using.

Another thing that happens, when using a Motor for Ku, when you do a scan and the receiver does not find any channels, then when it is done, it will revert to the first channel that has already been scanned into the channel list and move the dish to that satellite.  For me, I was off on the West end and did a TP scan by mistake, instead of a Blind Scan, and even though the receiver found channels, they had already been found before and stored into the receiver and the last TP that it scanned, it did not find anything for it and when it was done with the TP scan, off it went to G28, which is where channel number one is in the channel list.

We will continue working with the unit and will let DMSI know about what we find.  Thanks to those of you that are helping with testing these units.

Rick

Tried the SR1 on the INDYCAR S2 8PSK feed on G3C @ 3871MHz H SR15000 FEC 5/6 and Video was a constant jerking or mini super quick freezes.  Not a good thing.  Appears that many of the S2 feeds are going to have problems.

Made a recording to see if the engineers want it.

The International INDYCAR feed on AMC 1 Ku @ 11900 V SR29270 that is DVB-S QPSK and it plays pretty good, but not perfect.  It has a little bit of the occasional speed up, like a small buffering effect.

DMSI has asked for me to send them streams of any of the feeds that are having issues playing and they will have their engineers check them out and see if they can update the firmware to be able to play them correctly.

It was also confirmed that the chip set will Not support 4:2:2.  So that has been ruled out for this unit.

I'm sure they will fix the video stuttering issue.  Besides that I am impressed with many of the features of this tiny little receiver. It also can be stowed out of the way using the remote IR receiver if space is at a premium.

Been playing with mine since the weekend and here are a few observations so far.

I have to say that blind scan is lightning fast and extremely accurate. Most satellites I blind scanned in less than 3 minutes for both polarities with the longest being about 4 minutes (i-805C) max.  Some in as quick as under 2 minutes.  Blind scan on Ku is very fast also and on par with C-Band.  Most receivers I own will take much longer on Ku.

Channel change is very fast.

Dolby Digital 5.1 works on satellite channels like KRBK and CTV's in RAW mode. 

I tried a bunch of multimedia files with a 32GB thumb drive using the movie player.  Videos in AVI, H.264, and MKV all work and navigation is a snap to advance to any spot in the file and quick.   Dolby Digital 5.1 audio will play if your file is encoded with it.  I had a few H.264 files with MPEG AAC audio that I tested as well.  All video files played nice and smooth.

I also tested the music player with MP3 and WAV files.  Again navigation is easy and quick.

Tried some of the net Apps like YouTube, Weather, and Google maps using the Wifi connection.  All worked well but don't expect performance to be like on a PC.  Still nice features for looking something up right from the STB.

I haven't tested any recordings yet or used a motor as mine is slaved.

The testing continues.

Emil

I've done HH motors tests and having some issues and reported them to Rick (as posted by him).

For me its a plus to get this to work 100% with diseqc motors as its what I use the most for feed hunting on sats that I don't have stationary. Also for me, the remote function is kinda slow at times. Also I am still having issues with the IR sensor with having it more then 5ft away and yes I have placed the sensor vertically (left and right) and still no difference. I have to do all my testing within 5ft away from sensor to make it work.

Hi Fubar,

Thanks for helping us test this unit out.

On the remote control, can you double check and make for sure that the Pin Jack is plugged in all of the way or if you have not, try unplugging it and reseating it?  I am not experiencing any problem with the remote response myself.  

For the motor function when you told me that after scanning a satellite, that your dish would then move east and end up on I805.  What I found with the help from Leo at DMSI, is that the same sort of thing happened to him and myself.  What we found was that for example, I was doing a blind scan of AMC 15 and the receiver found channels and when it was done, it would stay on AMC 15 and exit out of the scan menu and go to the last channel found.  Now if I did a TP scan and when it was done and the last TP it scanned, it did not find any channels, then it would exit the menu and go to channel number 1 in the channel list, which in my list was a channel on G28.  So off the dish would go to G28.

I am asking to see if this be changed, as if I am scanning my way across the arc going to the West, I want to go to the next western satellite and not have the dish moving back to the east.

One neat feature is you could select the satellites that you want to scan and check them all and then do an All Sat Scan and the receiver will scan one satellite, either TP or Blind and then move to the next and the next and the next and so on.

I also have some feed back from Dave in Belton and I need to try and replicate them:

Was able to confirm the symptoms you mentioned about the receiver
  returning to the first satellite in the list after
a manual TP scan or Sat scan that returned nothing found.

  On my problems, only the loss of the signal & quality indicating bars
  disappearing, remain.  In Diseqc when moving the motor or in Usals
  when changing the reference longitude. (only way to get the bars back
  is by changing TPs)

  All my other problems have been fixed by a factory reset and then
  deleting all satellites and then loading and scanning one at a time. 
  Doing it this way the menus and scanning has been flawless.

Thanks to all who are helping.

No problem with my remote here also and I use it at least 10ft away from the sensor.  You should be able to see the yellow LED on the remote eye sensor when its on and it turns red when the receiver is off.  If you can't clearly see the LED then your remote sensor it may be in the wrong position.

The IR sensor seems to be bad and or defective, I mean re-inserting the connector into the receiver 10-20 times did noting to fix or help the problem.

Rick can I get this sensor replaced??  or you have to send a whole new unit?

But I would like to get it shipped to me first before sending my bad one back so I can at least keep using the SYNOQ.

Let me know.

This has been a problem for me since day one, 5 foot maximum distance between the remote and sensor no matter where i place it or how I place it (Vertically or not)

I don't have one of these receivers but I have seen this same problem before. one thing to try fubar, is unplug every other stb, DVD, recorders, or what ever is in that same room as SNOQ is in, then try the remote control and see if the range has improved. if not then you have one that's deft, but if it does improve then its a piece of equipment emitting a signal that's interfering with the SNOQ reception from the remote.

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!
