What ("Audio" or whatever) settings are needed to hear the radio channels on satellite AMC 8?
Thanks

Any audio that is Mpeg can be heard by most any receiver, but audio that is AAC is pretty picky on receiver type. I don't know if the Manhattan can do the AAC channels, but most of the "S" receivers (Openbox S9-S10-S12 and the like) can deal with these AAC channels. AZBox says it can do AAC, but in many cases it needs a video PID to be present and the AMC 8 channels are audio only. DVB cards generally work fine with any of the AMC 8 audio. Others will chime in with their experiences on receiver type I'm sure. Because of the sheer number of different PIDS in the PAT of some of these signals, the channels may need to be manually entered. I see you are showing a Vantage in your sig. I was able to manually enter AAC channels into a Vantage, but I found I had to go to the channel, then switch to a different channel, then go back to the channel for it to play...must've been a quirk in the software. We discussed it in an ancient thread way way back...

Thanks. I will try it on Vantage.

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!
