Strange, my Strong 4658x does the same too.
I was thinking it was a memory issue thinking i had too many satelllites listed etc but it would appear theres something in the stream that the strong box doesnt like. :confused:

Do the strong's give you channel names? The Manhattan gets it (without lockup) as:
3408V 9766 3/4 but the four channels come up as "unnamed service".

The audio is a bit over driven and distorting too. So on VTV4, muted and reading the English subtitles.

Hey Pollo

What size dish have you got as I am in Canberra as well and I can't find this bird? My dish size is 2.3m My 2.3 dish has not been repaired since it had two kids and a dog playing in it after it filled up in a hail storm. It has no pole. I just lent it on the fence(not even a Sutton brick). Signal is good stable and strong! VTV1,2,3,4.

signal quality around 60% and the picture quality is good. Audio is a bit variable but my strong 4653x locks up when I select any of the 4 vtv channels. The playback is good on the selected channel but none of the controls work unless I reset the unit. May be you need to use a non-strong decoder for your client until someone figures out what causes the lock in these units.

I am pretty sure that these channels are free. This is part of the Vietnamese government's plan to serve large Vietnamese community living abroad. These channels are free in Vietnam and VINASAT 1 is now Vietnamese owned.

To Apsattv: where can I buy these equipments or should I contact a local satellite guys? (Sorry I am a newbie here).

I currently use a smaller dish (0.7m, I guess) to watch VTV4 (with annual fees). Will this smaller dish work.

Appreciate your advice.

Vietnam's first satellite launches services


From http://english.vietnamnet.vn/tech/2008/05/785946/



VietNamNet Bridge - Vietnam's first telecommunication satellite,
Vinasat-1, officially launched its services at the Que Duong ground
control centre in Ha Tay province on May 30.

The launch followed Vinasat-1 manufacturer Lockheed Martin of the US
formally handing over the satellite to the Vietnamese operator, the
Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) on May 29.

Lockheed Martin technicians will provide assistance to Vietnamese
technicians to operate Vinasat-1 for at least another six months.

Vinasat-1 went on line on May 22, successfully receiving and
transmitting standard signals with the two telecommunications centres
in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The 200 million-USD Vinasat-1 will provide more than 200 digital
television channels and tens of thousands of Internet data
transmission and telephone channels via the two ground control
centres in northern Ha Tay province and southern Binh Duong province.

The satellite's range is expected to cover Vietnam, Laos, East Asia,
India and Austria with a prospective life span of 15 years.


The VNPT said 16 clients have registered to use Vinasat-1 services,
including Ho Chi Minh City Television and the VTC, which plan to each
use 10 percent of the satellite's capacity.

According to the Vietnam Telecom International (VTI), an auxiliary of
the VNPT, all local clients can complete procedures for their use of
Vinasat-1 services within this year.

VTI said Vinasat-1 should be operating at full capacity within three years.

Nope too small. You will need at least 1.8m, 2.3m better and C band LNB.

I could be wrong but I suspect the present freq is just for testing. When the satellite goes into further use they may change to a different transponder or use a different FEC with resulting different possibly weaker output.

It's too early to evaluate final signal levels at this stage I believe, although a 2.3m mesh dish will "usually" pick up most stuff up there.

I'm been using Pacific TV to watch HTV7, VTV3/VTV4 for more than 2 years using the small dish. Their is no techinal service when there's something wrong with the channels though. I'm about to switch to large dish so that I don't have to pay anymore. I'm trying to install the system myself to save some money. I hope I can watch HTV9 and VTV3 and others soon. I don't think Pacific TV will not die quickly because some people still prefer small dish. People don't have to ask for council approval and installation fee is smaller (even though they have to pay every month but the difference from installation fee will pay off about 2 years of subscription anyway). There is no guarranty that the VN channels available from C band will stay and they may end up loosing their money.
This is my second time to install the dish but it's harder to install the big dish. I'm still haven't digging a hole yet.

VK4BKP
02-06-2008, 03:00 AM
That's right tvvrn. We all should realise nothing is guaranteed with FTA satellite TV, especially C band. Channels come and go all the time. If a dish is installed for someone the service might be gone shortly after.

Dear Mr.Sutton,

Thanks for your message and your greeting of VINASAT-1 to New Zealand. We are very glad to know that Vietnamese community in New Zealand now can watch Vietnamese TV via VINASAT-1 satellite.
Regarding channel development plan of VTV via VINASAT-1, I'd link to inform you that: For the year 2008, VTV still maintain 5 channels on VINASAT-1 C band, those are VTV 1, 2, 3, 4, 6. From 2009, VTV has plan to uplink at least 2 more TV channels on C band, one shall be digital (HDTV), all are free to air.
If you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact us.

Interested to hear what Strong 4658x firmwares people are using that can handle these channels on Vinasat 1.
Scans fine but when you view them (even in the small pic on the menu) it locks up (doesnt respond to button presses) and needs to be re booted. Im currently using version 1.12P

Edit: I just updated to the std version 1.17 from the Strong website and Vinasat works perfectly now with no lockups.

Apsattv,
To tell the truth, we are getting bored with vtv4, that's for oversee Vietnamese.
DishNet has another Vietnamese channel called "Thuan Viet", meaning Pure Vietnamese...problem is this "Thuan Viet" channel is managed by oversee company, therefore it's not good either...what we want is the ones broadcast in Vietnam...so we can get all the good program..up to date news, sports...
I really hope that DishNet or other company will pick up these channels...what I am worry is the copyrights...plus Vietnamese Gov already has the VTV4..which is a medium of "propagada"..so it just does not make sense to allow other channels available in the US....hopefully some company make good offer to buy the rights to rebroadcast these..good enough that the Vietnamese Gov can't refuse..:)
I have a very good friend working in VTV...I will probably contact him to get more info on these..will keep you guys updated...
I am in Vietnam right now for vacation...the cable/satellite demands is huge here...problem is they are still using analog cable...one family buys the package and split them up into 10 to share with others...I am supprised that they don't use digital cable to avoid this cheating..

Yes I had the same problem yesterday when I tuned in, blind scan did not finish correctly and Strong box locked up and could not change channels, sat etc. Turned power on and off still could not fix.

The only way I could fix was to disconnect the signal and then change Sats and reconnect, and then I could delete the transponder and channel. Very strange. I want be retuning in until some good channels are there FTA.

Mark, it is a good work. What was shown there is the signature tune of the VTV1 with the national anthemn of Vietnam.

By the way, can I ask a question of a newbie: a friend of mine wants to move his big satellite dish, which currently points to Asiasat4 (I guess), so it can point to this new satellite (I mean VINASAT-1). How should it be done? Must he use a compass? or whatever instrument?

Hi All,
In the past few days I tried but couldn't tune in this sat with my motorised dish located in Sydney .using the freq. and sr provided in Lyngsat by slowly 'pulsing' the dish between asiasat 2 and apstar 6 , but the signal level and quality bars registered nothing. Is transmission from ths sat down at thr moment (which I doudt) or I have missed something ? I received all FTA programs on asiasat 2 to intelsat 2 OK.

Any advice? Many thanks

Hello all,

The good new is that VTV programmes will remain FTA. They will consider having it in Ku band signal.

I left a message in the general satellite chat about a satellite which they can use to convert C-band signals to Ku-band signal.

Hope to get some advice from you.

Cheers

WHERE DID YOU GET IT?

Hello Everyone,

Am a newbie and just installed the antenna myself (took me 2 days to align to one and only VinaSat1). Can anyone advise whether my signal strength is good enough (@ its peak?) i.e. signal strength 85% and quality 60%.

Loaction:Melbourne
Dish size: 2.3 M
LNB: C Band Zinwell
Receiver: Strong 4658X

G'day jjones895 different decoders give different % numbers for the same signal so it could be good. It may not be. OOoops Just saw it's a Strong 4658. The signal seems typical but the quality seems a bit low. Is the picture working well all the time? If it works OK be happy. If not you could try a Strong 926 LNB.

I think 60% quality is bit low. I got 85% quality on Strong 4653x using Star LNBF. You may try to adjust the skew and see if it will be better.

Thanks Guys,

In term of the pictures quality is just above average and consistent. However, will take your advise and fine tune it by adjusting the LNB skew angle this weekend. See how I go?

By the way HTV9 has left MeaSat3 hopefully it will be on VinaSat1? One can only hope.

Hi,
I am a newbie for Sat TV (Living in Canberra). I have a 1.8m solid C-band disk (ground base), I spent 3 days for setting up and getting VTV 1-6 ,and I successed it with Quality about 52 - 55 % . Do Anyone live in Canberra with 1.8m getting higher % of signal quality ?
Thanks

Welcome to forum. I am also in Canberra.

I guess that level is a bit low. I got help from a professional installer with 1.7 mesh dish and the level is higher than that (cannot remember how much). Picture quality looks quite good.

PM me your number and we can further talk.

Hi,
Could you please check How much do you get about level and quality ?
As i said i got quality about 52% (the level is very high near 90% but i donot know this is help . Only thing i am concerning is about quality) . If the weather is very good then the quality is stable about 50-52% and I can watch VN TVs . So, the main thing is to keep the quality is about 50% . I tried to find the best position of the dish to Vinasat but nothing can be improved . Today I am trying to turn different positions of LNB and I got an improvement of quality about 56-58 %. That is all i have at the moment.
Anyway, Do you have any ideas about that , please let me know ? Thanks a lot mate .
Bye

Just tried hard to get 3433 14800 with a 1.5M dish. I tried a total of ten different LNBs and super critical alignment with two different DVBs2 decoders and did not once get a lock! All of the LNBs get 3413 and the 3433 signal can bee seen on the specky but it is weaker and just will not do it. I know of two 2.3M dishes in Canberra that get it but with occasional break ups. Looks like a 3M dish may be the go!

Does anybody know why the signal levels on 3433v (VTV's) and 3478v (HTV's) drops considerably during the daytime, so much so that I can get no signal.

For example:

3478v at 8am =72% Good signal
3478v at 1pm =40% No signal
3478v at 8pm =70% Good signal

Seems to be between about 11am-4pm (Perth time) where the signal drops.
