Re: SES1 North America

Thanks Owen,

Do I have to enter the other info the semi colun,:transponder number,sat arc location etc. or just the keys? I went to the site and copied all the keys for ses1 there were 2 pair but i only entered the keys not the rest and....it did'nt work.So I believe i am missing something?

Re: V8 Super Loop Out Questions

Hi Owen, I think he splitter must be bad on the left side or like you mentioned it was probably for terrestrial VHF/uhf (but it's not marked for that) It worked great on the DC pass side.I will find one rated for 5/2400 mhz.the 2050 mhz is in New york so it will get here in 3-4 days I can't wait to ...

Re: V8 Super Loop Out Questions

Hi Owen,
I just ordered this item number on ebay 330982474327 for $3 dollars I think it's the right one bc it passes DC on both sides like the one you have pictured here.

Re: V8 Super Loop Out Questions

Hi Owen, I went back to your picture of the splitter and noticed that your splitter has the DC pass on both sides.The one I have has a line indicating DC on the right side of the splitter only.I think that my splitter might be the problem but why the heck would they make a splitter pass on only one ...

Re: Dual V8super on 1 dish?

just use the Loop Out and turn off the LNB power on the second one, that is what it is for. In fact it's one of the main reasons I chose the Super over the Golden. The Golden has a T2 tuner that isn't any good in the US and I can get composite out on the Super with a SCART to composite adapter. I'm ...
