    Anyone getting TOP MOVIES on 7w can you give a reception report - dish size/ location etc.. [seems pretty good]

    probably better to check at a better time as 7w usually dips to it's lowest daily cycle between 11.15am & 2:45pm [about now].

    best times are after 6-7pm & early morning before 11am

    details are..

    How comes JSC sports have HD 1 and 2 on 7w and not also 13e?
    46% here and picture quality is excellent.

    The reason for all these new free movie channels etc.. on 7w is that a new satellite -Atlantic Bird 7 has just gone live (yesterday morning early hours) at that position ... I just happened to be scanning a new receiver for a customer within hours of it going live ... there might be nearly 5-600 channels in total including sports etc..

    Just done a pub with an 88 x TM5402HD & checked it with that too... that got most of them just after noon too which is a low signal time for 7w.

    very nice .. :smashin:

    Thanks..

    It could be the TM5402HD... might be 'the' most sensitive tuner now or level with the previous top one- the Foxsat HD.

    There's a few other JSC Sport HD channels [& a 3D one] & they have some others on test.

    JSC Sports +1 to +4 are showing on Kingofsats as on Nilesat 102... the verticals on NS102 can be similar in power to most of the new Atalantic Bird 7.

    JSC Sports +5- +10 & World Cup are showing as on the much harder Nilesat 201


    just hope all the ones we want switch....

    er... & ADSPORTS .................:lease:........:devil:

    Already had a report of reception on a TD88 in Harrogate of Top Movies glitch free in the evenings & Top Movies isn't the strongest ... [but not so good in the day, although I don't know how good the install is or what receiver.

    Signals can vary quite a bit with fringe reception like 7w in the UK or 2D around Spain - they tend not to be regular & can go up further away etc.. like Costa Blanca where it can jump to needing 2.4m for 2d & then actually goes down again further south. Hence reception reports-- Eutelsat won't have known 100% until they flicked the switch & reports around the UK will go on for a long time.

    They are also very susceptible to local noise ... in the middle of a big town or city &/or overlooking one to the south can be quite different to being in a rural location & having a rural clear south view. Or being in a city but having a wall of trees that the satellite is just visible over can make a big difference as the trees block & soak up the local noise & even adjacent strong sats.

    A channel calling itself email(at)TV.CH [on 12437v 27500]..... seems to be one of the strongest on the new AB7 satellite if anyone with a smaller motorised dish wants to try to get the new sat at 7w,

    I think about a 'decent' 80cm offset dish is minumum with a sensitive receiver/ LNB & all round decent setup x low noise location. Lower than an 80 & the wider beam width of a smaller dish should bring in too much from 8w & 5w unless perhaps it was a sky dish shaped 70 or 75.

    The movie channel MBC PERSIA has a new stronger transponder on AB7 which is a very close second btw.

    just done a scan around 13:45 and picked up around 300-400 channels, using an ET9000 and a triax 1.1 in manchester. probably would fair better with the technomate 5402 as the tuners in the ET9000 are not exactly brilliant to start with

    will try again later tonight when the signal is a lot better, although cam across a channel called Play Movies which was advertising X-Men first class

    Thanks for the report... doesn't sound as though the tuner did too bad there - it used to be the lowest signal strength on 7w was 11 am to some time in the afternoon although this new satellite might have different characteristics.

    Play Movies has started running trallers now on 7w, looks very nice - not sure if that is going to be free to air or some sort of pay per view movie channel?

    it looks possible - 'just' - but everything has to be 100% about the install & a decent 85/lnb & sensitive receiver etc.. plus no local noise issues like steeet lamps right in or near the dish aim etc..

    & 85 as in reflector area so 80 wide x 90 high would = 85 on area - many dishes are quoted differently size wise.. you have to measure the reflector surface to get the real size. If it were 85 high then it's more like an 80 on surface area.

    There's quite a few JSC channels including test channels [although blind scanning can duplicate some]..

    JSC Sports HD1 has AC Milan v Parma (R) on the epg atm
    JSC Sports HD2 has Athletic Bilbao v Atletico Madrid (L) atm

    Signals are the highest of any on the new sat [here anyway- noticed a few vary from location to location].

    But JSC Sports News keeps showing a trailer showing a Nilesat 201 tp- it's otherwise in Arabic [we don't want anything on 201....:thumbsdow]

    Lyngsat are showing the new satellite (AB7) as being at 7.2w but Kingofsats puts it at 7w & the other sats just slightly east of 7w.

    Counted over 20 channels last night carrying US/English movies & US/English programming with English soundtrack either 24/7 movies or a mix of local & English programs/ movies etc....
