Hidden digital SCPC

Dear Dr.Dish,
I wonder how you get all this PID-codes and how you find a hidden
scpc-signal. Using a Scientific Atlanta receiver, I had no luck at all to
get some of the DVB signals. Even if I use the convert-trick you published
some months ago.
Jaques, Leb.

its a little bit difficult,but very effective. First I search the satellite
with a spectrumanalyzer for scpc. Then I feed the found frequency into a
Mascom/Nokia 9200 (also a older version of the german d-box will do) and
start the manual search routine. After few seconds I will get a lock on the
signal and going back to the manual search page of the OSD I get all missing
data, like Msymb/sec and FEC. I assume you got a 9223. This receiver asks
for correct data. We got it from the 9200. Now you have to feed the data
into the 9223. Press MENU and 0 and you get the Service Menu. Dont care
about the message NOT AUTTH, because the receiver locks and this is
important. Press MENU-USER-NEXT-YES-3-9 and you will be in the MPEG-STATUS
Menu. The menu shows the complete identification of the channel: Net Name,
Prov.Name and Progr.Name and all PIDs. This PID are very usefull to use
later with the Mascom/Nokia or for you own database.
Good luck!
