You are welcome Doc. Sounds like you are making good progress, almost there! You are going to LOVE it, once you get her going. Please keep us updated on your progress, and we would love to see some pics of the completed project.


BTW, you never know about the permit. You can always try to pull a permit for your property in Ormond Beach. I had to get one when i set up a BUD here in Michigan in 2011. I went to the township because i just knew my neighbor would call it in, so i wanted to be legal. (im in a subdivision). The township looked at me like what the heck you talking about? No one has asked for a permit for a C Band dish since 1994. They had to get out the old rules from the archives and charged me $50 for the permit. I had to let them inspect the hole i dug for it before cementing it in, and then inspect again after dish was done. It was stressful, but it was worth it to know i am legal. I have the permit hanging in my FTA room.   smiley

Update 04/19/21

Good News/Bad News situation regarding the GEOSATpro HDVR3500 FTA/IPTV Receiver

Bad News

There is a shortage on the GEOSATpro HDVR3500 FTA/IPTV Receiver. Out of stock everywhere   sad

Good News

We have 15 7 pcs in stock at as of right now. The 64GB versions!

Do not delay, this may be your last chance.

This is a great receiver with maybe the best blind scan on the market.

Thank you for the response. Got the dish up at my location. Got the cable last week and ordered the LNBF yesterday....  and got measurements of dish. I'm doing this project at our property in the forest, we spend most of our time at the coast. Don't think I could get a permit to in install a BUD here in Ormond Beach. Thanks for the help. I'm sure I will have more questions later. Doc

Yes, most Ku satellites have few scrambled channels, unless you get bleed-over from one of the DBS satellites, such as 91W. Of course, it is easy either to delete the transponders, or use the built-in editor. It certainly would be a big pain when I scan 118.8/119W looking for free channels if all scrambled channels also showed up which would require massive editing.

I wish I did have that problem with C band, but, unfortunately, I don't have a C band dish!

From what I have read on many forums, Amiko seems to have been fairly responsive to requests in the past, hopeful the same will still apply to these problems and a correction will be forthcoming.

Thanks for the information Keith!
The blue channels I think are about identical in your receiver and the Amiko Mini 4K.
To be clear, you would probably average around 50 unwanted scrambled channels every time a c band satellite is scanned. Some satellites would have more than 50, and some would have less than 50.
Blindscan a few c band satellites, and you will have several hundred unwanted, scrambled channels. The Ku satellites do not really have this problem.  Hopefully this scrambled channel issue and the universal lnb scan issue will be fixed at some future point in time. We will see...

As far as channel editing, does the receiver not have a channel editor in the "Services" directory called "Organizing Services"? The Amiko Mini HD265 has this, where you can delete individual or a group of channels at one time, or move individual or a group of channels at one time. At least on the Amiko Mini HD265 it makes the use of an outside editor rather redundant for those type of mass changes.

If it doesn't, then since the menus between the two receivers seem almost identical, you would think it could easily be added by request.

Just did a test with my Amiko Mini HD265, using a universal LNB, and there wasn't any channel duplicates when blind scanning, nor did I see any duplicate transponders listed during the scan. The satellite I have the LNB on does have transponders in the 11700 to 11900 range (99W).

On the Amiko Mini HD265, a blue channel during scanning means that the channel is already in your channel list at that frequency. New channels found are displayed in white. I assume the same is for the new receiver.

Just to note, my AZBox Ultra HD also has never had any problems with Universal LNBs.

EDIT: Just watched your video, and my Amiko did not do the lower frequencies H and V and then switch to the higher frequencies, just did H for the full spectrum, and then the V.

I am glad there are not problems with the 10750 lnb!

Anytime a blue channel is displayed in the scan means it is a duplicate. I have found several blue channels in my recorded c band scans. Almost every scanned satellite has them. It is possible these blue channels are just the same names on different transponders? I have not looked into it enough to know if these blue channels are harmless or if there is a channel duplicate problem in c band blind scanning.

I don't find scanning a bunch of encrypted channels that you cannot watch to be fun, especially when the risk of cleaning them up with a buggy editor belongs to me. The receiver is no longer a cheap receiver of around a hundred dollars if you have to pay shipping both ways for someone to un-jam it because of a corrupted sat or channel file. This is my number one concern, and is the main reason my Mini 4K is retired.

The signal meter does not work either. It shows full strength until the signal is too weak to lock on my antenna system.
Then there is the channels that mix and do not work on 101w. Most likely, this problem will exist on any two c or ku transponders that are around 4 MHz apart, are on the same polarity, and have a similar symbol rate. This issue and the signal meter issue might be in the tuner driver and should be fixable. Actually about everything I have found wrong with this box except for the picture could be easily fixed, but I don't think Amiko is interested as the product has been out for some months now. I assume it will be mostly what it is now, years from now. We will see...

Off the top of my head, i think that is as simple as a typo. I kinda remember i think it should have said 129 TV, there has been way less than 199 TV channels on this sat for a long long time as i am sure you know. But let me do a new scan. Will update this post in a couple moments ...


Yep, new fresh scan just now 04/12/2021, using Amiko 4K UHD S2X

Galaxy 19 97.0W Ku

119 TV

49 Radio

Absolutely no duplicates.

I am using a GeosatPro SL1 PLL LNB on a GeosatPro 90CM Ku dish.

Also, i fixed that post in the Blind Scan Wars Part 2 thread, sorry about that (typo).

I mainly use universal type lnbs because I live in an area that can receive transponders below 11700 MHz. It has been a very long time since I have seen any receiver fta receiver that makes duplicates when blind scanning with an universal lnb, providing the correct settings are used. The last receiver that made an Universal lnb blunder in blind scan that I know about was VU+. The last receiver that I know about where Universal lnb in blind scanned the entire IF range twice has been many years.

Octagon SX88 does not have any Universal lnb blind scanning issues, and neither did the GTMedia V8 that I scanned and setup on a ku dish system last year. Both of these receivers are in the price range of the Amiko Mini 4K, with the GTMedia piece costing roughly half as much. (The GTMedia V8 had a lot of motor issues, and you sort of get what you pay for with that thing... )

Put in a simple way, the Amiko Mini 4K is universal lnb blind scanning the entire IF frequency range Twice, which is around 950-2150 MHz. This is why there are duplicate channels.
More or less, it should scan like this:
22KHz Tone = Off
Scan 950 - 1950 MHz
9750 + 950 = 10700
9750 + 1950 = 11700
22 KHz Tone = On
Scan 1100 - 2150 MHz
10600 + 1100 = 11700
10600 + 2150 =  12750

Instead, the Amiko Mini 4K scans like this:
22KHz Tone = Off
Scan 950 - 2150 MHz
9750 + 950 = 10700
9750 + 2150 = 11900
22 KHz Tone = On
Scan 950 - 2150 MHz
10600 + 950 = 11550
10600 + 2150 =  12750

This is an oversight in coding and can be easily fixed.
(It could be worse: Vu+ left out the 22KHz tone control in the Zero 4K receiver.)

As for not seeing the duplicate channels in blindscan, My last blindscans only found around 120 tv channels on 97w ku using a 2.4 meter dish with a pair of iDirect lnbs. How did you manage to find a lot more than that without getting any duplicates?
