I am going to work on a new satellite channel list for the Azbox in the next month or so.  Here is a list of Satellites I am thinking of putting into the receiver.

C/ku separated : 

What I want to know is what others think first, this is for the North American market, so I want to start at 5* W to 139*W that way if anyone who can get those satellites well they would be in the receiver.  There are some new launches coming up so I have put them in Red (hope I did not miss any). Was thinking of adding those into the receiver now. I have a ? mark on some as I was not sure about so any input from others would be appreciated.



Edited the satellites here to reflect the changes made in a post below here:

 

Initial dummy transponder to put into receiver

Dummy> each C-band satellite =  3000.000    9000  ¾  DVB-S/QPSK

Dummy each Ku -band satellite = 11500.000  9000  ¾  DVB-S/QPSK
(adding the dummy TP  satisfies the Azbox so that it would not corrupt the list)

DiSEqc settings on original list will be set for using a 4x1 switch
(others may have to make a change to this setting if they do not use it)

LNB will be set for (1) 5150 for C-band and (2) 10750 for ku

What settings would those who use the Echo or Nimic birds use?

When all is completed I will upload the list so anyone can download it to their Azbox with the ACC program and they would then have a North Americanized list.
The first one to be done will be the list for those who use their Azbox's as a slaved receiver.

I would also like to do one for those who use the Azbox to move their dish and those are some of the people I need input from as to what settings I need to put in for each satellite to make it work for you also. Or is that asking too much?

Nimiq are LO 11250.

As long as there is a satellite set up for each degree position wouldn't it be fairly simple to just rename the satellite when the new ones go up rather than set up multiple satellites at that degree position?  Don't have an Azbox as yet, so not familiar with it's channel editing features. With my other receivers I've always just been able to rename the satellite when a new one replaces and old one.

thanks for the Nimiq info
I believe I missed the Echo birds at 61.5 those are at 11250 also ??
The reason for the new ones in there also well, when the time comes for the change-over people could do a new scan on the new bird and then delete the old one.
Nothing stays the same for long but having the extra new ones listed would be a help to some. Having the extra ones at the same position would not adversely affect the receiver in any way.

The same as with placing a spare at 89, 97 & 99 W.
Some signals are so close that by having the spare you can have some on it and basically not worry about changing anything else to view a signal.
As it is, there are 4 known signals that in order to have them all on the same satellite you have to mark the polarity different and 1 or 2 would not be able to be on it unless you delete another signal. Those are usually part time signals so people would be able to have all the correct signals in the receiver without making changes.

Yes, echo @ 61.5 looks like it should be 11250 as well. 

Hmm... yah, every receiver has it's little bugs that require a bit of a work around to make things go. 

I'm sure the guys running these here will be happy to have a set up available for North America.  5 - 139 pretty much covers it all.  I can see 45 - 180,  but I don't point past 139 as there is really nothing out on the Pacific sats global beams. 

So much satellite is Europe centric that I've found some apps where you can't even change LO from Universal Ku.

I just dug up the list that I will be working on and there are still a couple with question marks (?) that I do not have answers for. Those are highlighted in Blue below.

Those in Red are the new birds going up in the next 12 months or so.

Those in Purple are the spare satellites due to some frequencies being so close the Azbox will not pull them in if you have certain other ones on that satellite already.

If anyone knows  the answer to those in blue please post it here.  Thanks!

8W AB2 - Ku only.  9750 IF is probably right for this one if "universal" isn't an option, I don't believe there's anything active above 11700.

47W NSS703 - allegedly both C and Ku.

78W Ku - probably should be 9750.  I don't believe there is any activity above 11700.

Thanks, I just edited the post above yours to reflect the changes you spoke of.
Just leaves a couple more to go.

33.5°W : Hylas 1-??- c or ku??? 5150 or  11250??

67.0°W : AMC 4 ??- 5150 ??

71.8°W : Arsat 1 –KU < new -10750 or 11250 ???

81.0°W : Intelsat 3R-?? (should put in receiver or just put in Arsat 2 ) ??

I have a trial version up.
It is not loaded with channels or TP's
Only channels in this list are on AMC-21 (KU).
Took much longer than I expected to get this far. Had several items that would not change to the correct numbers when inputting the info.
Has to resort to my back-up program I have which makes it work but it takes much longer.
This list includes some of the new satellite changes coming in the next 12 months so it should be good to go.
Sat's put in go from 5*W to 139*W All C-band and KU band sats are separated.

Use ACC program to send it to your azbox. Instructions are in the Az-User Guide.
Since the list is done you just need to follow from when the editing is completed.

I have this file at this site only at this time since I have not scanned in any channels except on AMC-21 so it's not plug and play but some may like to scan in their own anyway. 



I have checked it as far as knowing everything in it is good and it is working now on the Ultra. Each satellite has a dummy TP listed on it that can be deleted only after you do a blind scan on the satellite. Otherwise you risk corrupting the list.

Once some of the new satellites are launched and running the old satellite names can be deleted just remember to save a copy on your pc when you do it and send the new file back to the azbox with the ACC.

The satellites I put in are ALL the ones on the list in the post I have earlier in this thread.

SatMex 5 gave me the most problems putting in and it plain refused to do it right on several attempts. I did finally put it in but you will see it lists SatMex5 C-band right next to the future bird SatMex-8 C-band and ditto for the ku side.
Not really any difference as when Satmex-8 goes up the old one can be deleted and it will be back in the right slot.

The list is a complete North American Satellite List.

Vendig, just what i was looking for. Got it downloaded, will try it in the next day or so. Thanks a bunch. Plow

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!
