Some new ITC HD on DN 61.5

12559 H 20000 HD Locals from Wilmington N.C.
ABC 4130/4131
CBS 4386/4387
NBC 4642/4643
FOX 4898/4899
PBS 5154/5155

These scan in clear my my Pansat 9000.
They show up as Ch. A with Q and S at 98%.

But I have no picture or sound?

DSSPredator, if those are HD FTA, you should try increasing Symbol rate from 20000 to 21500 and set FEC to 7/8??? A/V should come in.

They are all ITC. No editing of PIDs, SR, FEC necessary. These have been known for awhile and are visible/audible 24hrs/day. I am watching them now. I watched the Grammy's on the CBS station last night.

Strictly a "paper" FTA and OTA enthusiast now: all equipment in storage waiting for a new home.

Only in the FTA hobby whereas someone will spend a small fortunate on equipement, then gets really excited when they score the US networks.

Small fortune? 2 receivers, dish, LNBs, cables = $325. Pretty small fortune. And I have all the networks via subscription anyway! But it's the technical challenge of beating the system that keeps you going.

Am at about 475$ so far (39" dish, motor and LNB = 175$. S10 receiver = 120$ 6 foot prime focus 180$). Luckily I get RG6 cable and f connectors free.

The receiver is in the man cave along w/ OTA, Hulu and netflix so am more than happy and entertained. The wife stays upstairs. The dog stays with me.

Cheers, K

It is indeed the technical challenge of beating the system that keeps you going. A man can only be oppressed so much before he rises and gets what he wants!

I had heard that those channels along with the Indian or Pakistani channels stopped being ITC as of Friday - no?

Please explain. I am using the Openbox 9. Maybe the AZ Box currently receivwes them -- I dunno.


Thanks.

No. These 5 are ITC on 61.5W now. The two recent Indian channels that I saw which were ITC disappeared weeks ago. I am also using an Openbox S9. Nothing to explain: if you scan 61.5W and edit per beginning of this thread, you can watch the 5 nets.

Looking for some help?

These nets scan in fine, show excellent S & Q, but I have no pic or sound.
I have scanned other ITC nets on 72 and 77 years ago but these will not show up.

If anyone has a Pansat 9000 or 9200 with picture and sound any help would be appreciated.

BTW the ITC HD channels on 118.8 are causing the same problem.

Thanks.

I just erased all my channels from 61.5W and did a clean new blind scan. You need to edit the frequency of the 12268 H 20000 blind scan result (5 channels on this tp) to 12559 H 20000. Without any further editing, the 5 nets are then immediately visible and audible.

Thanks for the update. Probably related to the DN promotions for the month of February.

Could be, but I don't know why they would do a preview of regular network stations. Don't they usually promote something they want you to buy?

If you liked those, try G28 at 89W (12196 H 2784). ABC HD from Nebraska.
