Yeah, we seemed to expect too much from our "friends" from nordic countries
- we waited for launch of Thor 2 so much ! According to SMW footprints,
Moscow should have got 44 dBW. Bullshit. Nordic people seem to join
Eutelsat in war against Russian satellite TV viewers (Hey, Eutelsat people
- we
don't need this crap you filled widebeam of HB2 with ! Eat it yourself ! We
want perfect commercial movie and music channels, not countless news
channels in arabic language !) Well, real power from Thor 2 in Moscow is
arround 37 dBW, which requires
2.5-3m or bigger dish for simple "normal", evenly not "good" reception.
Now there is no reason to write in sat-moscow about all things happening on
a brand new scandinavian "hot bird". It will not make sence - now I can say
it - Thor 2 is not recieveable here for most of dish owners.
But still it's a pity that we are likely to (according to rumors) loose TV
Norge, which planned it's move to Thor 2. Also it's a pity to already loose
not evenly
tasted TMF Nordic ... Bye-bye, good music. Or install huge metal monsters,
sirs ! Generally to say, Telenor (well, Hughes aswell, let's not be silent,
this
company makes us very "glad" every time - Astras are perfect examples) has
a very interesting oppinion about fighting piracy. In Europe absolutely
everybody notices that signal power from Thor 2 is much stronger then from
Thor 1. Nonsence ?
Who hack D2-MAC channels - Europeans or Russians ? Telenor "knows"
the answer. And most likely it will publish the following picture in one of
Nordic magazines - in a Russian forest there stands a bear with one eye
covered, with a dish at the top of the head, the bear holds a pirate's
sabre
crashing a D2-MAC decoder and in a second paw he holds a pirate card. Aha. 
Agree with the fact - scandinavians see us exactly in this way in their
imagination ! Finally, let me say - sirs from NPO PM and other russian
satellite builders
- lets make our GALS and YAMAL satellites so weak in Europe and
Scandinavia, so they
will watch them on 5 meter dish or bigger ! 
And now prepare for one more surprise - Sirius 2. Hope this surprise will
be pleasant for us.

How Moscow residents could already have noticed, Formula-1 returned to TV
screens of people without satellite antennas. New channel, TV Centr, which
have replaced 2x2 and MTK on 3d terrestrial channel in Moscow, is
attempting to become as
powerfull and prescious as Canal Plus, for example, - sometimes one is able
to find commercial movies there, and now there is Formula-1 ! According to
an
unconfirmed source, TV Centr is a "relative" or RTR. Or vice versa.
Programming that ceased some time ago on RTR appear on TV Centr, Formula-1
is commented by same people, and this list is perfectly completed by the
rumor that TV Centr have bought RTR-Teleset package. As a matter of fact,
this is probably true,
keeping in mind a lot of strange testings and rearrangements on Intelsat's
604 11.135 V transponder, from which sometime ago RTR-Teleset package was
broadcasting in DSS. Digital signal was switched to DVB, it changed SR a
lot of times, "moved" arround the central frequency of the transponder, but
now seems like it again stabilized - it has now parameters: SR 27500, FEC
5/6. But it is impossible
to recieve anything - maybe, it's just a test or package is completely
encrypted. But, let's return to Formula One. First race on TV Centr was not
broadcasted live. The following one is not included in any schedules. But
the first one was
not aswell ! Of course - a question appears - does TV Centr broadcast
Formula-1 legally,
or a brand-new channel only had money for just one race ?
Unfortunatelly, this question does not have an exact answer too. But the
hope is still left that TV Centr will "overtake" Eurosport in some meaning
- 
broadcast F1 races regularly and live.

Not so long ago I found one of old MK issues, which, at first, did not
attract my attention. It was sent out on may 30th, 1997, and in its part,
which is rarely read by people, I found and NTV Plus advertisement. The
following words were there: "From autumn NTV Plus will start 2 more
channels, and in a year the total number will be 20". Very, very
interesting. How our second pay-tv company plans to broadcast
on 4 narrow GALS transponders 7 channels ? Ok, it is understood with the 
erotic channel. And two new ones ? What, it will be a pay-per-view service?
Yes ? Ok, football fans, prepare to buy a brand new key for your "GALS
DECODER SYSTER" for another "Spartak-CSKA" (popular Russian football teams)
match. And it will be as cheap as 50 $, cheap isn't it ? Ok, enough
kidding,
seriously-to-speak, I do not understand the strategy of NTV Plus. Why they
keep advertising "Wild discounts on the reception hardware" if monthly fee
"wildly" grows
day-by-day! And also, in a year we will be easily able to blame NTV Plus in
"lying advertisement". Because GALS-R will not be in service in a year (no
salary payed to employers of NPO PM). It is impossible for NTV Plus make
total 
number of channels equal to 20 without GALS-R in analogue mode.  
The only possibility to keep the promise - to switch to MPEG-2. But NTV
Plus keeps insisting on their "official" plans about starting digital
service
only from GALS-R. And we again were cheated by an advertisement ...

In Ku-band you can recieve NTV, packages NTV Plus and STS. NTV is
broadcasted from Intelsat 604 at 60 East, frequency 11.515 V, digital
standart MPEG-2 DVB,
Symbol Rate 25192, FEC 3/4,VPID 42FF, APID 4300. NTV Plus package is
broadcasted from GALS satellites in PAL, but encrypted in Nagravision. STS
package
comes from Gorizont satellite at 53 east in encrypted MPEG-2 - it is only 
for further re-broadcasting. Parameters of last two packages you may find
at http://www.satcodx.com

2) I have D-box with Software version DB2.2 ( somebody upload ~new~
version from Astra satellite ). And now when I try look on
HIGH band channels ( set 22K in 1 in red menu ), then D-box
switched anything , but there is nothing on screen and no signal
carried detected ( with good parameteters in red menu: Frec, Pol,
PID, ... ). My system: Offset 1.2m, Cambridge Universal 0.7db,
Nokia D-Box and Nokia 8003CS D2MAC recivers. My LNB work well
with Nokia 8003CS in HIGH and LOW band. Now question : what the red menu
codes I need now enter to looking good HIGH satellite band.

Try this trick - it usually works for me. Enter all the parameters in the
red menu - frequency, polarisation, symbol rate, FEC, but do not enter
anything in 22 kHZ switch field (where you usually enter 1). Now save all
these parameters, press TV for red menu to disappear and press RIGHT. After
that, the d-box should automatically
detect which band to use - LOW-Ku or HIGH-Ku. And if everything else is
entered correct and satellite is strong enough - the carrier should be
detected.
