I am very experienced with FTA and use to install systems for a living...however the Geosatpro HD is a new receiver I am not familiar with totally yet. Thank you  for any help [smile]


Here is how I set them up, should be about the same for all GEOSATpro receivers:

These are the settings in my GEOSATpro HDVR3500. Settings for other receivers are in the previous posts on this site. I Have also posted an updated list here as well.

All of them requires manual entry, you can not just scan them in like other channels. Make sure you are on Radio before entering settings by pressing the TV/Radio button on remote (unless you want them to appear as TV channels).

Example:

Satellite: AMC-1 103W Ku
Frequency: 12145Mhz
Symbol Rate: 20000Mbps
Polarity: Vertical
SERVICE: 50's & 60's Hits
No. (Default/No settings)
SERVICE ID: 0 (Default)
Video Stream: MPEG-1 (Default/No settings)
VIDEO PID: 8191
Audio Stream: MPEG-2 (Default/No settings)
AUDIO PID: 7496
PCR PID: 7496

Changing from PCR:45 Video:45 V.Type:NA Audio:7541 A.Type:MP2 to PCR:7541 Video:65535 V.Type:NA Audio:7541 A.Type:MP2 fixed it. [smile]

For kicks, I built one of these 1308 KHz AM transmitters.
I have it connected to my OpenboxS9, and for example tune in the '50s&60s Hits' station.

Playing it on my 1935 Philco Console radio sounds pretty good.
Just requires a modest length antenna, a good ground,
and care not to overdrive it with too much 'volume' from the STB, else risk over modulating.

The Spectrum looks pretty clean on my Motorola Communications Test Set.

I was just looking at some AM transmitters on eBay and thinking about doing the same thing. Was also thinking of also using it to connect a 25 disc CD Changer loaded with old-time radio shows too for that "time machine" effect... [thumb]

I think most people just use an mp3 player as a source for personal low power AM Transmitters.
Given we don't want them to radiate too far, probably want to keep the antenna length down to a minimum.
Mine covers my house, and my neighbors, about it.. seems just right.

Thanks to dsmith0429's tips and list! I manually added all the stations of interest to my 9000i today.

This no longer shows the last ten songs played... when I try to go to the to the root 'muzak.com" it redirects to http://us.moodmedia.com/

If any of you web genii (geniuses?) can figure out how to scam the tracklistings for the stations... it would be much appreciated.

Peace

Actually, it hasn't been Muzak for several years, but they still use the old web addresses for the channels...

I have an updated list, as they have been changing channels over the last few days. I suspect that's why you were having trouble.

That being said, here's the correct web address: http://muzakwpn.muzak.com/#

Also, You can also get the info for the unlisted channels here: http://muzakwpn.muzak.com/wpn/

If you look at the XML files in the XML folder (http://muzakwpn.muzak.com/wpn/xml/), it will have the channel numbers and names as well, for example:

<name>50's & 60's Hits</name> = Channel Name
<echostar_pid>7496</echostar_pid> = Channel Number

Use the channel number as the Audio and the PCR PIDs. On my receiver, it needs the video PID set to 8191.
 

I've attached a Word document with the latest channel info as of Oct. 4, 2016.

Has anyone figured out how to receive these channels? Wondering if they may be on a different satellite or maybe scrambled...

7600 Chipotle_East
7601 Chipotle_Cent
7602 Chipotle_West
7603 Chipotle_Mtn

They seem to be active channels according to the files in the XML folder at http://muzakwpn.muzak.com/wpn

Example: http://muzakwpn.muzak.com/wpn/xml/200.xml

<program>
<name>Chipotle_East</name>
<audio_desc>200</audio_desc>
<echostar_pid>7600</echostar_pid>
<le_pid>200</le_pid>
<last_updated>2016-10-05T01-49-12</last_updated>

the channel number is the decimal pid number for the audio stream.

Yes, but I can't seem to get these to work like the others on my list that I posted. Is there something different that I'm missing?

For all the other channels, I use the <echostar_pid> as the Audio PID and the PCR PID, but the Chipotle channels don't work that way for me, I don't get any audio, and the receiver says "No Signal":

Examples:

WORKS:
<name>50's & 60's Hits</name>
<audio_desc>000</audio_desc>
<echostar_pid>7496</echostar_pid> = set Audio PID and the PCR PID as 7496
<le_pid>000</le_pid>
 
DOES NOT WORK:
<name>Chipotle_East</name>
<audio_desc>200</audio_desc>
<echostar_pid>7600</echostar_pid> = set Audio PID and the PCR PID as 7600
<le_pid>200</le_pid>

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!
