 I tried tuning the NASA mux on 127W after installing my new GTX 1060 to check out the UHD channel. The 6903 will not get a whiff of the mux.Four other STB's in the house get this mux with quality in the 80's and no breakups. Using DVBDream no lock, EBSpro won't get a whiff of it either but all other transponders are showing SNR's from13.5 to 17Db. I have played with the frequency and SR but no luck.I am running Win7 Pro 64bit.

Try 3mhz step scan.

Even a manual entry will not get it. Weirdest thing I have seen. switch the coax to a STB and all comes in fine. Next step is to use tuner #2 on the card and see if that makes a difference. I am feeling operator error somewhere here.

Try SmartDVB! It's free and seems to be the least trouble free for me. DVBDream crashes my PC when playing the NASA MUX on 101.0°W, but my free no penny spent SmartDVB plays it without problems. Go figure!

Just came back to the mux and tried again, locked and playing smooth as silk even while I type this. I have no explanation. Smart DVB would not lock it either by the way. Me thinks there is a gremlin in my PC!

Quick Navigation:

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!
