Russian and German channels

Print Post  
A couple of years ago we purchased a satellite dish called Joy Sky for watching Russian and German channels e.g. Deutsche welle, Pervyi Kanal, RTV etc. free of charge. Recently, all of these channels have disappeared. We have tried re-tuning, even switching satellites with no success. Sometimes when we have re-tuned there has been a good signal (85%), but no channel has appeared. The last time we re-tuned there no signal at all. Usually we use the asiasat4. Could you please advice us of our next course of action? Thank you, Cesar

There are listings of programs here:

Look for TV services that are marked "SD/Clear or Free To Air" as these do not need a paid-for conditional access subscription card.

As you move across each satellite you should get a "signal strength" reading.  Peak up and then set to scan and hopefully some picture will appear and you will see a "signal quality" readout for that carrier.

If you get nothing at all it is likely that your LNB/cable connection is corroded or broken.  If you detect some signal strength be aware that peaking up the pointing is critical.

Most modern set top boxes are good for DVB-S2 with 8PSK and 16QAM modulation carriers. Check the data sheets for older model set top boxes which may do DVB-S QPSK only.
