I have a two year old s9 and was wondering why some signals were coming in and others were not.  Started reading about the thermistor change out.  Figured I would try it.  Bam just like a new box again.  Thanks so much.  Life is good now.

I wander if that applies to the Sathawk as well? I believe they're the same units. I thought that was just the tuner not sensitive enough. Didn't know there was a problem. I guess I'll to replace mine as well. Thanks for this great Forum

I read tons of stuff about the s9.  Motor control making the "current switch" heat up and making it go bad.  Well I don't use the motor control at all.  I would watch a signal just fade away.  Didn't really matter what sat I was on.  Try to scan a freq in that was a soccer match or fight and no way.  Thought the guys were just teasing me.  It was driving me crazy.  Ordered up the part from digi and  unsoldered the component and soldered in the new.  Tried and it has been working like a dream since.  Four days now.  Now it is a double sided board so if I was to do it again, I would just clip out the old and solder to the legs.  But MAYBE it was a cold solder joint causing it.  Anyway it works great.  Thank you Ricks Sat.  Have fun.

Not only can you get good advice and technical help here, what I never hear talked about are:

1) just how INFORMATIVE Rick's website is. My typical session involves first checking "latest Topics". I can see very quickly whats happening in the world. Often before it's on the news channels websites.I can tune in and watch it live w/o the talking heads to "explain it to me".

2) EASY to NAVIGATE and know where to post what.

3) Doesn't have a million Advertisements.

I just tried to use a competing website. It's one of the ones sometimes talked about here. (Yeah THAT one) What a mess. They try so hard to bury good information out of fear it will go $scrambled$ that it takes a registered user forever to find it.

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!
