Unidentified signals during AMC-8 Search

My search for the unencrypted DVB services on AMC-8 as listed on
Lyngsat has come up empty, but I'm logging some other signals with
my Pansat 2500A that I've been unable to identify.

My blind search on the horizontal polarity for 4060, 4168 and 4180 is
producing nothing. I see the progress bar slowing down at various points
during the blind search, but nothing gets loggged. My dish is properly
aligned, I've got great signals from neighbouring AMC-7 and AMC-10. I'm
located in the middle of North America at the Minnesota, Ontario and
Manitoba border. Is their anybody east of me that's getting these
services, and if so, how well?

My AMC-8 blind search on the vertical polarity is producing six active
transponders all with a strong signal level and quality, but no services
are being logged, encrypted or otherwise. There's no corresponding
listing on Lyngsat for these results. Lyngsat is pretty good with
logging everything regardless of mode, video or encryption, so I'm
wondering what the deal is here. Anyone else picking up this stuff?

Here are the results of my blind search with my Pansat 2500A for AMC-8
vertical polarity. My Pansat rarely agrees with Lyngsat's transponder
frequencies, I'm usually 2 or three MHz below the published frequency
and my symbol rate is usually low by a certain amount also, so use some
leeway with the data below. For Example, my receiver reports the
Anchorage Mux on AMC-7 at 3878 with a symbol rate of 25.194 as opposed
to Lyngsat's 3880/25.200

1. 4157 V 10.054 (level:76 Quality: 99 - orange bar during blind search)
2. 4125 V 10.054 (level:76 Quality: 74 - orange bar during blind search)
3. 4032 V 3.351 (level:75 Quality: 99 - black bar during blind search)
4. 4002 V 5.027 (level:75 Quality: 99 - orange bar during blind search)
5. 3994 V 3.351 (level:75 Quality: 99 - black bar during blind search)
6. 3744 V 1.446 (level:72 Quality: 99 - black bar during blind search)

Most of the good stuff goes to Alaska. The things you are finding are
DVB/IP muxes. You should get TSreader and a dvb card. You will really
like it.

Some hit closer than others. I'm going to swing over to amc 8 and give
it a shot.

Kryppy;

How can we get more information on just what DVB/IP muxes are, and are
they worth the investment to view them? Any sites you can recommend?

Thanks,

Jim

Muxes are not something you "view." It is a data stream. Technically, I
guess
they could deliver video, but in general these are things like program
guides,
extra information, data services, all kinds of fun stuff. A DVB card for
your
PC and you'll be in business!

Yeah, what he said. Nothing to see really, but all the macs flying by
can be neat for five minutes. VP-1020 is a good one that works with
TSreader.

Is there a web site that would explain just what your'e talking about?
I looked up the cards, they run about $75, but was wondering what else
is up there worth getting set up for.

I don't personally know of a website, perhaps kryppy does..
If all you're wanting to do is see what is in the muxes, then
probably the investment isn't worth it. They're a neat thing to
play around with, but I'd already purchased my DVB card for
other things!

Twinham 1020a works great with it.

It is the first sw I have ever thought about buying.
