For some reason my Linkbox 9000i Local will not manually scan PIDs that have AC3 audio. I can enter the PIDS and when it scans it says "failed" and the video shows a dark screen, an ID box and strong signal level. All non AC3 audio TPs I have manually entered scan in with no problems. Am I missing something or is this normal?

Jim,

What channel is it that your trying to scan in with AC3 that won't scan in?

I have not noticed this myself.  I have scanned in many channels with AC3 Audio just fine.

Thanks,

Rick

I have tried to scan in some radio channels and it wouldn't take them. Then I tried to scan a channel on the Alaskan mux that I accidentally deleted.

Jim,

When you go to TP List and Search and then select or input the Frequency, Symbol Rate and Polarity and then Hit OK and you go to the TP Search Screen, are you changing the PID Scan to Manual and then inputing a VPID, APID and a PCR PID and then hitting OK?

Thanks,

Rick

I go to the TP List and Search, then I pick the TP and SR I want, I then hit the scan, it gives me TP Search, then PID Scan Auto, I hit auto and it changes to manual, I enter the PIDs and PCR and hit OK. It scans the TP, tells me failed and then I have a dark screen with the ID bar and a strong signal. As I said, it works fine with non AC3 audio PIDS. Only have this problem with AC3 audio.

Confirmed.My 9000i (Non Local) does the same. I never noticed that before Jim posted it.. Even AC3 channels that were previously scanned in on blind scan would not manually scan in again after removing them.

Said channels came back after using blind scan again.

Needs a software update to include an option to allow the user to pick a Video type and Audio type in the manual pid menu.

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!
