I have problems to find the following channels CNBC EUROPE, BBCWORLD, TV5 Monde Europe and SKY News located on Astra 1 transponder 11 597V DVB: 22000.

Advice in German is also welcome!

Thank you for your suggestion. But unfortunately I already have installed the extended scan tool last week and have left it on!

With this tool I found 230 additional channels including the arenas but no channels on the transponder 11 597V on Astra 19.6E

For your information we have also an "Echostar 5020pvr" that has no problem receiving this strong transponder with these channels.

I also have a second AMC 570S connected only to ASTRA 19.6E without a Diseqc with the latest BETA 3.2.412 with the same problem!

I have to write again as nobody seems to have a solution of this problem. Comparing to many other satellite receivers we have had during the last 20 years, I am surprise that this AMC 570 cannot receive all the strong channels on i.e. ASTRA 1 (19,6°), Thor (1°) as well as ASTRA 2 (26,2°).

It must be a software problem. Thanks for any information when this will be solved.

Thanks. :)

Have you already tried to scan one of the missing transponders with a specific transponder scan?

Just to know if it is just an issue of the scan table itself.

Thanks Eddie,

Yes I have of course tried that.

BTW: Can you get this transponder? Or do you know anybody who can with this unit?

I have had 7 different units the last 20 years without this problem. It must be a software problem - or what do you think? I have also found out that the sensitivity of this unit is very low.

Strange that nobody in this forum complains.

Thanks for any comments from anybody
