uplinkguy:  the rule of thumb is they should be encrypted, but I do pick up stuff that is not encrypted.  Also if they forgot to turn on the encryptor unit then its fair game.  I will say that it is hit and miss when it comes to picking up the signal but that is why my little black book of tips, tricks and clues I found from web sites.

So I hope this list will help you out.

I do get the sat tv guide called Orbit, you can find it on the shelf at a store I goto is Greenfield News & Hobby at 68th and Layton and it will be on the end cap by the tabloyds and in the back of it they do list some on the wild feeds.  Its for C-Band/Dish Network satellite tv for the month by month and some other good info in it.

Let me know when you get it up and what you find?


sorry, the way I typed the sat list in didn't come out as I planned.  But you can see all the channels and what satellites that there on.

Todd Wiedemann

Wow, thanks Malamute.

The list is awesome.

I'm a news junkie and wild feed wannabe. Those out-of-market locals really interest me. I'm getting close to pulling the trigger.

Is your LNB strictly Ku band or a hybrid C/Ku ??

How tough was the first alignment ?

Have you done business with MPEG2FTA ??

Thanks much.



My LNBF is only for Ku Band.

For set up I used from skyvision.com was the SITE COORDINATES FOR YOUR SPECIFIC LOCATION   #02-6500003  $12.95 plus $2 for S&H  and they can fax it to you if you want, I did.

Sorry I've never found or heard of the web site you listed, but will check it out.. I got all my stuff off ebay.com

I know that the recievers (MPEG2) will not decode the DC2 signal

Todd Wiedemann

Hi again ...

Would you mind taking a look at this site ??

Are those all of the channels you can receive, or just the pink or green ??

Also, check out RoxSat ... this is their systems page.



I goto lyngsat.com all the time, if you looked at the free TV section you need to know which satellite's are in our area.
When you goto lyngsat, on the main page on the left side you will see is Frequencies and under that is Asia, Europe, Atlantic, America, click on America and if will bring a list of sat's up starting with EchoStar 3 61.5 W to EchoStar 5 at 157.0W and all the satellites in between we get.  To see what on each sat click on the name and it will bring up the transp.  with C-Band , Ku-Band ,  Ka-Band .

If you goto the Packages you will see all the satellites with Digital Programing on it, if you have direct or dish you can click on their name and see what channels are on which transponders.

The color code (the blue colors) dark are the newist lighter are older one's.

That web site is very nice and their price's are pertty cheap!!!!
All the model's are the best ones out there, like I said mine is a Coship 5300CI  and I like it.  Buy what you like the most, but they don't come with the dish mover unit, you can get one from some place.

Now you see why I have this system, is fun to explore cause you never know what you'll find!!!!

Hi  Malamute  I too am new to the HD seen.  I am also very interested in what you are doing with the ku-band FTA receivers.  What puzzles me and the question I have is the connection between the FTA receiver and your STB HD decoder tuner box.  Are you outputting the signal from the loop through connector on the FTA receiver to the STB or are you using the RF channel 3 /4 of the FTA and outputting that  to the STB?  Also how is a ATSC STB able to decode DVB broadcasts from the FTA receiver?  I thought they were apples and oranges.  If you could help me on this I want to go with this type of setup also.  I am currently running a 2.66 ghz P4 PC as a home ET PC with a Haupauge WINTV-HD card connected to my Sony KF60XBR800 LCD rear projection set.



Tazman,  I use the RF out not the loop out on the sat receiver.  The connection to the STB is with a Dixplexer one from the sat and one from the antenna to the antenna input on the SIR T165 unit.  I've set the T165 to output a native signal so what it brings in anolog or digital signal it will output the right way.  Some freinds on mine have Direct TV HD and I did compare them (the Signal and Picture look for HD Net) and they look the same to me.

How to hook up to a computer? That I can't answer, sorry.  You may want to try the way I have mine setuped.  I wish I could help you on that but can't.

But that's why this FTA system is so much fun to play with and what you can find up-there!
