Re: V8 Super transponder issue

ok I found the problem and none of the above and no rationale for it either, the box was set to blindscan only one polarity and after looking at some of the others they need to be rescanned as well, as apparently I am missing a bunch, thought the box was defaulted to auto and not to V or H, oh well ...

In a way yes you could clone the unit. You can choose to save to USB the main code, the user data and the softcam and then load t...

Site question

I notice I have no options to post or reply in the softcam section, is there requirements to be able to do so or what, just curious as I would like to see if someone has an updated North American softcam list and would be so kind as to share as I am using a combination of 2 that collide and would li...

DHL can't even deliver chicken on time to KFC in the UK.
I have asked them to use China post in the past. No change.

Re: V7 HD problem

Thanks Feralkiwi, that thought had entered my mind however it happens on channels the the key has not changed in a year, unless the receiver randomly does this by default, I can see this on channels like AFN, however I will look at what you suggested, I am new to the freesat platform but my history ...

Thanks, Jim, but I my signal quality can't get much better, I also use an Openbox Z5 and have no problems, the problem is there on any satellite and is random but pretty consistent, also was there with both of the last 2 updates, maybe its a bad box, or has a weaker tuner than the openbox...Oh well...
