    professional is expensive, if you need for commercial purposes, but non professional is not that bad cost wise.

    If you have PC-DVB card (like Sky-star), then Fastsatfiner is the program that you run on your PC. It gives you the signal level in real time. And it is FREE.

    Default Hi Friend

    Hi

    Ya, I ve Skystar2 New Version with USB IR receiver and remote
    But the problem is to carry my computer to my terrace to see the real time signal. I want a tool to see the real time signal at my terrace, obiviously not for commercial purpose but for a end-home use.

    Mr alkananda .....
    You will not find Skystar2 in India As there was no demand no one was dealing with the same. I ve imported from w*w.SatThaiTV.com. You can also visit another german shop w*w.DVBShop.net

    And the cost is approx 50-60 USD (varies from shop to shop)

    imagine yourself logging your pc or laptop with you on the rooftop?

    you will be better off with sat finder meter (digital or otherwise) but the problem is that it DOES NOT SHOW YOU THE EXACT SATELLITE that you are tuned in to. it simply gives an ear-piercing sound meaning you got a signal from a satellite, and that could be ANY satellite for that matter. so you still have to look at your tv downstairs to verify that you got the exact signal from the satellite you are looking for.

    the best possible way is to buy satlook, or birddog. it's not cheap and is aimed mainly at satellite technicians who install dishes most of the time.

    thanks for the pics, but the satfinder is the manageable thing, and once you have your positions correct, you only need it to confirm and then finally the tv confirms the picture. only i didnt get it very well on ku band, it could keep quiet just when i get the sat position.
