Re those maximum pictures numbers, sometimes I would see thumbnails that only had partial pictures.  Turned out that the transponders weren't sending the complete frame each time.  But if you increased that number to around 30, then the whole picture would print out, because it would collect more partial images.  However usually 10 or so would work fine.

I will play it safe and change that refresh setting to 30.  I hadn't thought about the impact when large numbers of channels have thumbnails to display and refresh.

I wouldn't bother changing it unless you run into problems.  I usually keep it low around 10 so it will update faster, but if I have problems, then change it to a higher number.

Those other parameters are more interesting, and don't always do what I think they will.  I can't remember where I saw a channel that only gave about half a screen, but changing those MAX images settings to a higher number brought in the whole screen, but I seem to remember having some issue with having them too big too, because I changed them back to smaller numbers too. Almost best to just leave them all low, and play with them if there are problems. 
     But the channel that gave half a screen was one that some people were saying played fine, but other people were saying that it gave video that was blinking on and off.  I tried 2 different receivers here, and one worked and one didn't.

It looks like the new version of TSREADER has default values of zero filled into the options in the Refresh rate/maximum pictures window.  When I filled realistic values there, everything works.  Try 20 in all 4 windows.

BTW, it was voomvoom's comment about timeout that made me think of that.

Thanks to you and the search button this would have taken many hours to figure out. [smile]

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!
