Compliments of the season to you all out there!!
This article should have come before now but i was a lil’ bit down with sun fever after my researches on why the new Tp and Sr that was changed has been proven stubborn on dishes below 2m. I came up with some on field findings and also read comments from my group of installers.
Now the first thing i discovered is, the previous tp, the minimum signal level is 21%, that’s why it was so easy for anyone claiming to be an installer to get it. And also easy on 1.3m or less. But after the tp was changed to 4096 / 16908, the cut of points, i mean minimum signal has been increased to 34% using strong 4669 as a case study. The reason is, they’re trying to make the signal weaker on 2m dish below. Let me give you an example, on sp24 East, using 4669, the cut off signal is 44%. Meaning before it will flash, your signal must be higher, using dish from 8ft (2.4m) upwards, a very powerful lnb and glass with higher di-electric constraints. So this totally has ruled out 1m dish from getting the signal of sp24 west because it can never ever be possible.
If you are finding it difficult to nail the bird, it’s either you seek the services of a qualified installer (cband), because many people taught tracking mytv or dstv or joytv has made you to become an installer. This is the reasons we have schools, if you don’t know it, don’t be shy, use your money and invest on yourself. You use money to make money. Call an installer that knows more than you, sit at a corner, watch him while he’s doing it, pay him, and see if you won’t get better.
Another thing i will like to give you little education as to my own level about circular satellite using a common man language. We have linear satellite and circular. Circular satellite are also known as rounded polarization. Example is the sp24. Now in other to receive a better signal or let me say convert the circular signal to linear in other to watch it, we need di-electric plate. Di-electric plates convert the circular beams to linear, making it easier for the lnb to get the signal.
Nowadays we have many di-electric plates, (the yellow stuff that normally comes along with cband lnb), which they now use ordinary materials to do and which contains less than 0.3% of di-electric constraints.
If you noticed, if you use glass as your di-electric, you have more signal and even 10% higher than the yellow stuff on your cband lnb. This is because, glass has different types, and also being different, they have di-electric constraints between as high as 2%-10%. Here are some of my collections.
All given me different signal % on circular satellite.
Now another point is, if you’re tracking sp24 west on your 1.8m, pay attention to skew. I mean, rotate your lnb to different positions. This is mine, which is on 5’oclock position ;
Sp24 came out even without glass because my dish is bigger. I have since moved my dish back to the east signal because i so much like satellites in the east than west. If your nta is 3775v3775, your sp24 must be on H, if your nta is 3775h3775 your sp24 must be V. Take note and don’t keep making same mistakes. Try to visit the glass sellers, give them a little money and they will cut different types of glasses for you. But note that as they keep changing tp, their aim is to make the signal weaker on smaller dish, just as what we have on the east. Satellite on bigger dish tends to last longer. Mtn tv are not interested in changing encryption because it’s not for domestic uses, they will rather reduced signal to keep 40% out from tapping their signal.
Android box is still your best bet. I keep saying it and sooner or later, you will understand that hacked channels are ‘use while it last thing’ and are only for those that can install bigger dish and ready for issues like the one of sp24.
