    Has anyone heard of intermittant problems with the MMDS Eurovox TX box on the 266mhz freq ?
    this freq carries bbc1,2,ch4,utv, & others,....it can be fine for a few days & then there is a lot of picture break up & freezing,...I read on another forum that the some philips tuners in the Dreambox 500T have a flat spot on 266mhz which can cause this problem,..any ideas/help would be welcome.

    I think your right,..I setup a Max V in Dunboyne last week, a NTSmell cable mmds area & found nothing using symbol rate of 6875 which was strange but tried another scan using 6887 & all channels came in.

    Yep Lenny thats because you used the correct symbol rate for N**, 6875 is only for Ch**us areas. Although good to know you got it working in Dunboyne, had they got an MMDS aerial or was it a communal feed from a local transmitter?

    No antennas about the place so I assume it's a communal feed,..the Malahide area must be CH**us communal cable because I setup some Max V's there using symbol rate 6875 & they worked grand, did u see yesterdays evening herald ? seems a lot of boxes were seized in finglas !!!

    Yep but the idiot did openly advertise them with "all" channels, to be expected.

    must be the same guy who pushed leaflets through the doors in castleknock/blanchardstown flogging THE BOX "all channels & no fees" & had his mobile number printed on the leaflet as well.
