July 2006

Q.1 : Q: I had found Dish Channels very informative always. I like the test reports section very much, specially the new receivers. I will be very thankful to you if I am provided informations about DIRECTV service? (Mohammad Usman, Islamabad)

Ans: A: The LNB on the dish may have become temperature sensitive. Extreme heat or extreme cold may cause all your channels to go out. Check the temperature the next time it goes out and check it again when it comes back on. If there is a big difference, 90 when it goes out and 70 when it comes back on, the LNB may need to be replaced.

Q.2 : Q: I have installed a 57 cm dish for digital reception. I want to receive BBC and ITV and other English language programmes. At present I get Eurosport in German. Can I receive this in English? I am getting Sky News, CNN and BBC World in English. (Azeem Ali, Bahrain)

Ans: A: It sounds like at the moment your dish is pointing at Astra 1 at 19 degrees east. If you moved it around to Astra 2 and Eurobird at 28E, you’d get all of these except Eurosport and BBC World, although to compensate this you’d have all the other BBC channels including BBC News 24. The only place to get Eurosport in English without a subscription is the analogue service on Astra 1 at 19E. To get ITV.  

Q.3 : Q: I have four receivers in my house. I am receiving three signals from three different dishes (Hotbird, Arabsat, Nilesat), do I need to install three different systems for the three remaining receivers, or there is a way to connect the four receivers to the same DiSEqC switch through a mixer/distributor? (Khurshid, Karachi)

Ans: A: I think the easiest way to do this would be to use some multiple-output LNBs and some DiSEqC switches. Switches are inexpensive and 4-output LNBs are getting cheaper all the time – at least for Ku band. This would mean you could use the existing cables, with only one going to each receiver (you’d need one more cable and switch if you wanted all four receivers connected). At the dish end, a switch would be used for each receiver, with an output connected to each LNB. It sounds complicated, but is really quite simple. Installation and later maintenance can be made easier by using some coloured tape to colour-code the ends of the cables.

Q.4 : Q: I live in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I receive Panamsat 10. I want to know if it is possible to receive Thaicom 3 and Insat 2E? (Nazim Hussain, Saudi Arabia)

Ans: A: If you asking about C band receptions then yes both satellites are receivable in Jeddah, but only the Global beams of each satellite. For the other beams, bigger dishes are necessary.

Q.5 : Q: I live in Hilla, Iraq. I have 1.8 m dish and Humax f2 1002 with 0.3 dB lnbf. I receive some channels from Astra sats 19.2 east and some channels from Hispasats. Is it possible to receive Eurobird 1 and Hotbird Super Beam? (Talha, Iraq)

Ans: A: It is nice that you receive some of these satellites which some people in the Middle East have difficulties receiving them. Regarding Eurobird 1, it is also considered as one of the difficult receptions to pick in the Middle East. I would suggest to try the frequencies from steerable 2 beam, such as 12.607 H 27500 3/4. If you are not able to pick it up with same dish, then a bigger dish like 2.4M is needed. You also have to know that you will receive some frequencies from that satellite, not all of them. For Hotbird super beams, it is hard to receive these beams even with bigger dishes.
