bjdacre: John,
 

On a more positive note, has anyone had a go at getting Intelsat 18 or 19 yet?

Brendan


Hi , Yes I did when I noticed IS5 was gone I moved my dish to IS 19 on saturday 
90 cm dish
I am getting NHK world on 4060 H 26590 on my Openbox S4 HD PVR but only if the weather is not to bad .

Hi Rojul

Are you receiving NHK with your C-Band LNB on the 90cm dish?

Is not NHK on D2 so he should not need IS18 to receive

Awesome - thanks for the testing. I have been meaning to spin my dish around to IS19 to see what I can tune in. There doesn't seem to be a lot of testing that has gone on.

Tell me, how did you point your dish? Was it by eye (or a compass etc.) or do you have a signal strength meter?

Looking at lyngsat you are getting NHK off the western hemis beam

Can you tune BBC World in at all?

Should be at 4087 H 3255

Hi, when your dish is pointed at IS5 at the moment , behind the dish , just move it a fraction to the left ,
alevation is about the same , skew is about the same as well .

No I cant get BBC world , signal too low 

thanks

Thanks for this, I will get up on my roof and give it a try now that the weather has cleared. I understand that there are approx 50 channels broadcasting off IS19 on the KU band so was thinking about swapping out my C-band LNB to have a look, but I'm not sure that any of them are in english.

The only two channels that look to be of any use to me is BBC World and NHK.

Do you have access to a bigger dish that you can experiment with?

My 1.8m dish in Auckland can only just get bbc world. It's a bit of a rusty dog though. NHK is good.



Not even a little bit of Australia network though.




don't mess with me.... i'm the hd insider....

Hmmm... and I can get a reliable NHK off Optus D2 so I might pop a KU-band LNB and see what IS19 has to offer. It's a shame, but I am not sure that I can accommodate anything bigger than a 1.2m dish on my roof.

Good point. Is there an EPG broadcast with the signal?
