Technosat T 888 Decoder As Satellite Finder, How To


So this is the TECHNOSAT T888.
The manufacturer also calls it plus ultra, it’s a digital satellite decoder
and it’s only a DVBS decoder. This is not DVBS2 so
it’s a very old decoder. I bought this decoder in 2013. At the back we have
nothing much it’s not an HD decoder obviously it has a SCART output as well
as composite outputs. It also has LNB IN, loop out together
with RF in and loop out too. So you can use this with two televisions in one go
or rather three you can use SCART composite as well as RF out. So let’s
check the remote it’s quite old all the numbers have rubbed out. But I think I can
still remember where the buttons were. I still remember that this here is the
Menu button so this decoder has what is known as a
beeper and we use the beeper in installation to help us find the
satellite that we are looking for much easily. So to go to the beeper go to
antenna setup. That’s it and when you are at antenna setup make sure that your
TV volume is working (low frequency beeping sound) so this beep means that there is no
signal and you can also see that the signal intensity is that 39% and quality
is 5% it shows this even though I don’t have a cable connected to the LNB in
port. So let me connect the cable I’m going to show you how
to use the decoder as a satellite finder. Now that you have the no
signal beeper on your TECHNOSAT T888 decoder working we’re
going to look for a frequency so that we can track the satellite that we want.
Today I’m going to select INTELSAT 20 which is at sixty 68.5
degrees east Let’s select INTELSAT 20. In case
you don’t know how to use lyngsat.com website, I have another tutorial
on my website linked in the description below where I show you how to use this
website. You already know that the 4 digits over here mean that this is
a c-band signal but I don’t want a c-band signal
I’m looking for a ku-band so we are going to scroll down until the digits that
become 5. 4 digits still c-band
that is still c-band. Now this is ku-band the 5 digits over here like 10970 V that’s ku-band signal. But the beam on this website is South
Africa I’m looking for the Europe and Africa beam. So I’m just going to scroll
down until I see Europe and Africa that’s what will work in my area. Still
South Africa. You can see EU and ME and Central Asia. This beam, so that’s South
African beam Now we have alreay started seeing
Europe and Africa so this will work in my area in Kenya. So I’m just going to
track maybe one frequency that I need to track this satellite, we have to choose
one and I think I’m going to choose this one over here. 12682 the H there is the
polarity so I’m I’m going to track this frequency on my decoder. Now we need the
frequency and polarity the polarity is horizontal H and now let’s check for the
symbol rate over here. So the symbol rate can be found right here. It is 27500
on my decoder it might be a little bit different but I’m going to show you what
the difference is. I don’t need the 3/4 I just need the 27,500. So we have our
frequency let’s go and check it on our decoder. (low frequency beeping sound)
It’s time to set the frequency that we’ve checked from lyngsat.com just go
to transponder select ok and there’s a very big list
you remember ours was 12682 H. So I’m just going to scroll down until I get 682 H. That is 682
but the polarity is Vertical so it’s not the frequency. I’m just going to keep on
scrolling. That’s the frequency that we want Notice here that the symbol rate is
saying 27490, it’s no problem This decoder usually deducts 10 from the
actual symbol rate. I’m just going to go to the satellite dish I’m sorry I
won’t show you the setup outside but I’m just going to set and increase the
volume of this TVs so that I can hear the beep when I’m outside. (low frequency beeping sound continues) You will hear a different beep when I hit the signal And also one more thing before I forget to
mention, if you don’t hear the signal just go to system setup, come to other
and make sure that the beeper is ON. If it’s OFF we are not going to be able to
hear the deep sound like now the beep sound is off but if I go to system setup
and select it ON. Then I come back to antenna setup the beep is working so
don’t forget to set the beeper to ON (LOW FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND CONTINUES) (HIGH FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND) (LOW FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND CONTINUES) (HIGH FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND) (LOW FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND CONTINUES) (HIGH FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND) (HIGH FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND) (LOW FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND CONTINUES) (HIGH FREQUENCY BEEP SOUND PERSISTS) So now that I have the signal locked I just
need to tweak it a little bit and increase the signal quality. The very
last thing you need to do is to adjust your LNB so that you we can get the
maximum signal. I have a very good article known as meaning of LNB Skew
and what is LNB Tweaking and how is it done. I wrote this article in 2014 it’s
still very relevant even now as I’m making this video in 2019 so I have
included this website URL in the video description below I will be thankful if
you check it out and that’s it guys thank you for watching and good bye
