I just upgraded my receiver to SRT 4910. It looks great,
But the thing is that i am not getting any HD channels, just the SD ones.
Should i change the LNB?
Another question, can I connect my receiver to the internet,
I got an adapter with ethernet output
Good afternoon Gaby_r,
Which satellite are you on as i am in Kenya and i get HD channels from, Intelsat7/10 frequency 3739 H 26590 NHK WORLD HD.
Measat 3a frequency 4000 H DVB-S2 - 8PSK 30000 5 HD channels at present.
Eutelsat W3a frequency 10928 H 30000 National Geographic Channel HD UK.
At present this are the HD channels that i access from Kenya. The are also HD channels on Nilesat and badr satellites of which i shall report back in 2 weeks time as i have a Mega structure Dish coming up for fringe satellite reception.
All the in your quest for HD.
Thank you for your replies,
The answer is Hotbird. The listing shows HD channels but no output even though some are not encrypted.
What i really want to know, is there a specific LNB to get HD channels?
When the frequency of a given transponder is under DVB-S2 8PSK modulation you would require an LNB which is DVB-S2 Compliant [ HD READY } to deal with the noise figure .
The DVB-S2 modulation standard is designed to increase the throughput of a satellite transponder, or increase down link margins for better reception.
So far the main two LNB types which i have tested that are DVB-S2 compliant are INVANCOm and INVERTO Lnb's.
The Lnb that rules the pack is Inverto ultra black quad LNB.
I have noted that of late most new HD or Mpeg 4 channels are turn to DVB-S2 8PSK modulation.
about the dvb s2 compliant lnb's i was told it was just a marketing gimmick.You just need to get any lnb with a better performance and it should be enough to get your signal strong and clean.I sent a mail to strong-tech earlier on when we were having a discussion on those lnb's and that was the info i got.When i'm free,i'll send you the conversation that took place.Enjoy your day.
Well folks, it seems that swordswifter is right.
I bought a new lnb (HD ready) even though the seller told me that all lnb are by default HD ready, but i bought it anyways. However I couldn’t get any results.
Interesting note that the signal strength is around 64% maybe I should work on strengthening it.
Has anyone install more than 4 LNBs on the SRT 4910. Just want to know whether the diseqc 1.1 works well on that unit. Thanks
