Re: [SAT-UK-CLUB]: Forwarded from Hussein Munawer

I also have an old 5500 receiver of which during these last 4-5 years has
gone through quite a lot of mods.
Fist off all you should update your software with Torre's excellent
Hypersoft v2.59 (avail free of charge) 
Then you can make a couple of low level mods in your existing tuner and get
the results your'e after.
If you are interested either mail me directly (cause you are a bit off
subject this is  a digital mailing  list) or go to Torre's home page where
you'll find just about anything concerning the 5500.
