    Best Blind scan receiver update:

    I hope that I have posted this info in the correct section:

    I've just been reading the info posted by wlliam-1 on the other forum:

    Best Blind scan receiver update:

    1=AZBox Premium HD+ (Finds more transponders than any other receiver especially low symbol rates using 3 MHz steps + 4:2:2
    2=SpiderBox 9900HD
    3=Spiderbox 9000HD
    4=Technomate TM6900HD Super

    No other HD receiver that I have tested is worthy of being added to this list due to poor software giving incorrect symbol rates ect that is of little use to the serious feed hunter.

    If your HD receiver is not on this list & it has a good detailed accurate blind scan then tell us about it here.

    There was a reply from another forum member ref this Receiver:

    Hi William,

    As I said replying to another thread in DVB:General Discussion section, I tested a little PC box. Yes it's not a standalone receiver, but it's very very powerful in blind scan performances. I choose USB version due to high temperatures (model TBS5925), but an internal one is available, too (model 6925). As I wrote, I discovered symbol rate of 800K (yes K!!). Maybe it's not so fast using little frequency steps but I think that any DXer would try this.

    Yes I have been reading about this maybe someone can design a new receiver around this as it has a brilliant spec:

    TBS5925 DVB-S2 TV Tuner USB

    TBS5925 is a Professional level digital satellite TV Tuner box with USB2.0 connection to PC. TBS5925 supports not only normal DVB-S2/DVB-S QPSK, 8PSK which is supported by normal satellite receivers, but also ACM, VCM, Multi Input Stream, 16APSK and 32APSK mode, which most satellite receiving devices can’t support. With use of dedicated TBS tools, those special streams can be captured. Both Windows BDA driver and Linux driver up to the latest kernel 3.X are provided,

    The built in hardware blind scan feature allows scanning of unknown satellite transponder with symbol rate as low as 200ksps to 45,000ksps.

    Further info from william-1:

    I just asked the question about 4:2:2 here is my reply:

    It does 4:2:2 as well together with video codecs installed in the system that understand
    4:2:2 then you can watch both 4:2:2 and 4:2:0 with the 5925.

    I have found transponders as low as 800 in symbol rate with the AZBox on satellites all you do is change the scan mode in minimum symbol rate to 100 KS/s & scan steps to 300 KHz then select what part of the Ku band you want to scan,

    How many parameters can you control with 5925 ? (Symbol Rate,scan steps,variable start stop frequencies in the Ku band)

    where is the blind scan function on a 9000, do you just leave all network search on ?

    I've found it in the manual tuning options, it looks like its a bit slow though.
