mally isn’t there. And, how
about that, something seems
to be happening on 11.156
GHz H!
With a double-click on this
transponder we open Crazy-
Scan’s “Carrier Search and
Monitoring” window and start
the constellation diagram
(the button with the alien’s
face). The QPSK constella-
tion shows that the signal is
locked in and that a useful
signal quality exists. Next we
stop the constellation dia-
gram and then press the DVB
button to send the stream to
TSReader. The first time you
do this you have to tell Cra-
zyScan the path to TSRead-
er, after that TSReader will
open automatically with the
stream. It doesn’t get any
for a Feed
We would like to demon-
strate how easy it is to find a
feed using the TBS 6991. For
this purpose we connected
our 100cm motorized anten-
na to tuner B on the card. In
memory location 4 in our con-
figuration can be found Eutel-
sat W1 (10.0E). This satellite
often carries feeds making it
a good starting point.
We start CrazyScan and
enter in the data from Eu-
telsat 10.0E in the “Satellite
Info” field. Only then will the
documentation of our results
be complete. We also select
tuner B and set DiSEqC 1.2
to position 4. A click of the
“Set DiSEqC” button and the
antenna turns to the satellite.
Now we perform a scan
of both polarizations (V/H).
Transponders with feeds
can generally be identified
by their small size; typically
only one single audio/video
stream is transmitted. With
some experience you’ll get to
know the spectrum and you’ll
instantly be able to recognize
a transponder peak that nor-
And look at that: TSReader
has identified an audio/video
stream and instantly shows a
preview image. Double-click-
ing the preview image routes
the channel to VLC (Video
LAN Client) where it is then
displayed: live soccer without
any editing.
The DXer now has a nice
screenshot with reception
parameters and the time.
