Does anyone know if intelsat 5 can be setup in Media Center Win7 to get Australia Network and BBC World.
It is going fine in my Strong Top Box, but I like to intergrade it in my Media Center with my Hauppauge TV card.

hi Regs, I have programmed all the right settings for intelsat 5 in media center but it won't pick anything up. BBC world and Australia network are not encrypted, as I said they are fine on my top box. Intalset 5 is not listed as an option in media center (but neither is BVN on OPTUS D2 - 152° E) but by putting in the right settings for the lnb it works fine. not so for intelsat 5??????????

Does intelsat work on another set top box? ie is the dish aligned properly and the cabling good?

How are you connecting the intelsat dish to the computer? Are you using a switch of somesort whilst also having optus d1 connected?

hi jaxson, connected directly to me hauppauge win tv card from the dish without anything in between. (swap cable to my topbox and it works great, so dish and lnb are all ok and aligned properly) it's a media center problem I think.

Any progress, knoet. I would be keen to get this going on my HTPC but a bit unwilling to part with the cash for a bigger dish without knowing that I stand a good chance of success.

Hmmm, I was going to get setup with a larger dish and c band lnb too into my wmc...

Anyone tried Intelsat 8 to get BBC and Aust Network or am I reading the lyngsat site wrong...?

I got my topbox set to intelsat 8 with the right settings for intelset 5 and that works great. but I just can't get media center doing the same, it just doesn't see it at all at any setting. could be that the hauppauge card hassn't got a good enough receiver???????

You'd think the hauppauge would be good enough... I wonder if it has anything to do with what location you set wmc to when you first launch it...? Proably not.

I have a blackgold dual dvbt and dual dvbs. I might try to get my hands on a dish and ku band lnb and try to play around with intelsat 8 in wmc
