Multisat in Jacksonville, FL question
Posted 22 February 2006 - 09:45 AM
BTW, problem I was diagnosing (have determined their HDVR2 is bad, possibly hit by lightning like a lot of other stuff in their house): Tuner 1 is fine, but tuner 2 can't see any odd transponders. I swapped cables and disconnected each tuner, but the problem doesn't leave tuner 2. I'm fairly sure tuner 2 on a hardware level has lost the ability to send DC to do the switch.
Due to the apparently failed hardware, and the fact that it wants to do an auto-detect (or at least validate what you've told it), I'm pretty sure it's stuck on round dish forever now.

Really? Nobody? Let me ask a simpler question: is there a list of what channels are on which satellites so I can figure out for myself what they won't be able to receive?
In summary, All normal programming is on 101....some locals are on other sats....international programming is on another sat(s).....
maybe slightly outdated but as you can see, its pretty much all the regular channels....
All spot beams for locals.....
All the hi-def content
More locals, requires a seperate dish

This site should show what transponders dtv uses. It isn't coming up for me right now though (I have used it in the past)
It does sound like the DVR is bad and needs to be replaced.
