Yes it is back to the old spot, 12128 V on mine setup.

I manually entered the numbers into the Manhattan receiver, scanned the channels in but the signal is acting really crazy. It is like 70% but is really bouncing up and down. It actually locked up the Manhattan one time and I had to kill the power switch to regain control of the receiver. The pictures keep freezing up all the time. I don't know how anybody can watch a feed that's acting crazy.

Seems to be working fine this morning. Don't know what the issue was last night, unless it was the weather. We had tons of thunderstorms yesterday and last night.

Are these gone?  If not, could someone post the current Freq/Polarity/SR and satellite?  Thanks.

Still there.
Very strong signal: 15.5dB of C/N compared to 13.5dB for ABC NewsOne on 12011V.
1.2m metal dish with an Invacom LNBF, inside one of the 50.4dBW EIRP bubbles
The SF8008 reports the CBS
station as 1920x1080 HD, but the Fox station as 960x1080 - half the horizontal resolution
other than that, I don't see anything unusual; 8PSK 8750-5/6

I live 50 miles from Grand Junction and use the large 8 ft. big dish.  I have tried scanning in the channels using the Manhattan 1933 and the Geosat Pro 1200.

I cannot get the channels to scan in.

So, one of my questions is what receiver, lnb, and dish are ya'll using to get these channels?
                               
What receiver should I have that does 4:2:0??

Funny thing is, I can get CBS reception (such as it is) off of my OTA rooftop antenna from a low powered translator, but not satellite.

I think these channels are like the old KRBK FOX feeds were, in that they (appear to) have no SDT (am I stating this correctly)?  At any rate, the AZBox Me with Linux kernel 3.3.1 would scan them in, but the later Linux kernel 3.9.2 would not -- because of the missing attribute.  Only after I re-flashed my AZBox Me with older firmware was I able to scan them in.  The Octagon SF8008 sees them okay by default.  

So my successes have been with AZBox Me running 3.3.1 kernel and Octagon SF8008.  I have not tried anything else.

EDIT:

My question for you is can you lock the transponder, just not scan in the channels?  That's what I observed here re: above.

If the problem is missing entries in the SDT, then I posted the PIDs for both channels back in the very first post of this thread, if you need to define the channels manually.

Also, while the Grand Junction mux is 2dB stronger than ABC NewsOne (15.8dB vs 13.8dB of C/N here at the moment), keep in mind that the Grand Junction mux is 8PSK 5/6, while ABC NewsOne is QPSK 3/4, so the minimum C/Ns to lock are different - 9.4dB vs. only 4.0dB.
So, it's possible to have a situation where you can lock ABC NewsOne but not the Grand Junction mux, despite the Grand Junction mux being stronger, because it also needs more C/N to lock.

OK I see what you mean ABC 92 55 on signal that's reason I ask OK.

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!
