    Default Not getting Signals for Some Freq (polsat, Eurosport, etc)


    Hello everybody,

    I'm in Qatar. I was getting polsat and some other frequencies properly a few months back. Gradually it has become week signals such as it will be clear in the night and no signals in the day time. Now it has gone completey. No signal . I'm using Fortecstar Ultra and I never changed the position of the dish.
    Your help and advice is highly appreciated.

    If you are tune in to Hotbird only, check the dish position. If your are using DISEQC (Arabsat, Hotbird, Nilesat, Astra, etc) then check your DISEQC port or move to free DISEQC port your Hotbird cable connector. The port maybe grounded.

    Hi friends,
    I'm clarifying more to my post.

    I am getting all other packages clearly. Very good signals.
    Only polsat and some channels gone weak day by day and finally nothing.

    What size is your dish? The minimum dish size hotbird is 3.5 feet.

    I used to have the same problem a few week back. am here in KSA, after I updated my strong 4620 receiver with the latest patch I had to reset to factory setting then re-scanned all sattelites again. I then lost a lot of frequencies as well like multivision, polsat, ABsat, etc.

    Last night I re-alligned my dish and I get the frequencies back.... I am not sure what causes this but seems to me the satellite went off tangent or something.... all the bolts on my dish were as tight as they used to

    try to re-allign your dish as well, you may have the same problem as mine.... Good luck...

    yeps, sometimes we have to move the dish a few centimeters to get a better signal (this happened to me too, and my dish is already bolted to the cement so there is no way it can move). besides, polsat itself is very low on my signals too (kuwait, using a 5 ft dish).

    Default 2 lnb in one dish ( hotbird,tfc,and some nilesat channel..

    the best thing for all ppol seeking a good signal in hotbird be in multivision channels, absat, polsat is that when you shoot the bird get the highest signal quality of it. tune the channel in vox channel and from then get the highest signal quality of it and for sure you will not loose anymore your tps channel, absat, polsat, and spice. another thing is that you can add one lnb too and tune it for tfc and some nile sat channel. to get the highest signal for tfc using one dish, tune it to al manar channel of nilesat and get the highest signal of it. from then add the tp and sr of tfc and bingo... for info only and just a share.

    good tip from lakaypogi, it seems he has had his share of installing dishes for the offset TFC, hehehe.

    anyhow, since AB3 for TFC is very weak when we do offset, i would like to recommend a single dish, solely dedicated to AB3 transmission since sometimes using offset settings, you lose or get garbled signals for TFC (i think this won't matter much anyhow as we have until next month to watch it for free, unless someone can do something about the new encryption package).
