    Nothing new from my area and with my antenna, but I'm glad I can still get some transponders at 93.5E :34:

    With the 6903x card it is very hard to lock the weak signal with Crazyscan.On Linux, with the neumoDVB app, it is much easier.


    12732 V,16000,2/3,S2X/32APSK,0.05-Data,new.Locked with 6902se(CS) & tbs6903X(IQm)

    12551 V,65452,11/15,(S2X)/32APSK-Data,also as GS on #1. Locked with tbs6903X.

    12631 V,65452,13/18,(S2X)/8PSK,0.10-Data,new.Locked with tbs6903X.


    Nothing has changed in this position. The signal is a bit weak and fluctuating. That's why I haven't found a new transponder.

    As you can see on the spectrum there are still two muxes in the upper band, but I can't lock them, and so I don't know what parameters they use. Probably the same as the other transponders.

    I think they are all Data. It depends on which card and file are used.


    Excellent reception,Kypros :73: , but I wonder if you can pick up the signal from the Southern Africa beam?

    This is much further away from your area(dx) than the MENA spot(dth).

    Thanks :3:

    12520 H,718,2/3,S2-IPOS,new

    I hope I'm not wrong if I say that these radio streams are IP-over-sat. I tried to find out for which provider they are transmitted, but I couldn't find out.

    Whoever wants to find out, I provide them with a ts file (host 10 days).

    The Pids are 2001,2002,2003,2004.


    If you have a card with demod Silab, search 10798 V with this one.

    Or perhaps the signal is coming from the Russia spot, far from your area.

    Strangely the signal on 10754 V looks as strong as 10798 on the spectrum but the SNR is very poor(looks at my spectrum #19); attenuation is too high to both of us regardless of antenna size.

    Regards :3:

    12240 H,68500,7/9,S2X/256APSK,0.10-Data,(not new, #5) ,

    12400 H,68569,7/9,S2X/256APSK-Data(not new,#1)


    The transponders above are Data, and not Generic streams, as I initially thought. This time I came across mode 256 APSK, which I didn't think was possible to find. Interestingly, such modulation can be found although the signal is not that strong.

    Of course, only the 6903x card is capable of such a parameter.


    hello friends, who can to do a test again with new drivers a scan with compare with 6903X - please...I want to buy it but really I don't know if this card would be lost any trasnponders like here RE: TBS6903X

    ***

    ...and if its possible, who can test with blindscan on Linux devices with @deeptho software and drivers...
    thanks 

    It should be known that each driver version has in mind, either to improve some functions or to solve some bugs, etc. The last version of 6903x introduced only a high symbol rate, over 100000 Ks. I'm sure you are interested in this parameter; there are other interesting ones that only this card has. Of course, besides these exceptional parameters, we also want the 6903x tuner to detect weak signals and lock them more importantly! Which is what you want, but also what we want.

    The comparison of signals between cards that femi posted is just an important indicator, but not definitive in classifying cards between them. Because a card must be judged by what the manufacturer has proposed when producing it, but more importantly, what hardware support has that card. Or 6903x has in principle all the ingredients that make it to be the best-performing card currently on the market. But the limitations imposed by the chip manufacturer diminish its potential, disappointing the enthusiast. But the card has something unique that largely compensates for what we want from the card, namely to be a complete device that does not require other palliatives, ie other cards.

    Despite what we already know about the 6903x/6909x we are fortunate that CrazyCat for Windows and Deeptho for Linux are doing their best to improve on what the demodulator manufacturer has limited. And one only has to look at the history of CrazyCat's improvements to the card over the years and up to today to see that there is not yet a DVB card on the market capable of doing what no other model will be able to do. And I would go further and bet that it is a card that will remain unique in the reception market for many of us, enthusiasts or simple users. And that's because of the flexibility it has to improve, which the developers mentioned or others are trying to bring. For them, it is also a professional or intellectual challenge that such a card, or others, can provide.

    Deeptho brings with the neumoDVB app another approach to improve the card under Linux. The results so far are extraordinary in terms of scanning speed or finding parameters and locking a low symbol rate. He still has work to do to improve his app, or as he says, it is a work in progress.

    But coming back to your question, I would answer as follows: if you are just a simple user who wants a DVB card just for watching TV programs, then you can choose another card. And quite a few do the same, especially since professional parameters are not yet widely used in satellite transmissions for regular users. But if you are an enthusiast, then you can't do without this card. But that doesn't mean you have to buy it, and that's because it's not my money, it's yours, and I don't want you to feel sorry that this or that card is not what you expected. And many examples users have been disappointed by this card, even among enthusiasts. And paradoxically, everyone is right in his own way, because the card is expensive for the pocket of many users. Probably the disappointment arises because of too high expectations for the card's price.

    And after all, it is not the card that is to blame for not meeting our expectations, but what we think of it.

    For an enthusiast, the stid135 chip card is a Must whether it is expensive or has some shortcomings.

    As I don't get the UK spot, at 28.2E, I'll do blindscan tests of the tbs 6903x, 6902se, and 6983 cards at 68.5E under Windows, and with the neumoDVB app under Linux only for the tbs6903x card, where my antenna is currently parked.

    I don't know how relevant these tests are, but I repeat what I said above in the last words. Each card has to be judged according to the possibilities its demodulator has. Its limitations are known(or maybe not known) only by the designer of the driver and the related applications.

    I should apologize for the long text you are reading, but I do this only to the extent that my opinions are wrong. I hope that is not the case.
