Can't load your meter? Try cleaning your computer.

Can't get your Sathero Meter or First Strike Meter to load?  You know the software is mature and well tested by many meter owners.  I actually get a few emails or calls complaining about the software not loading.  In most cases this problem can be solved by cleaning the computer.  I've put together a short article on this that I've been sending out for years simply named Clean Computers.  

It is always good to keep your computer clean.  It helps avoid virus's and malware.

January 2012 Satellite/Transponder List Available!

Happy New Year to all! 

Our first 2012 Satellite/Transponder list is available.  Registered owners of our meters can request a list. 
This list of satellites and transponder settings is 139 pages long.  I comes in a pdf file and can be used for a reference for the settings of your meter (or your receiver). 

Recently DMS International released our Avenger PLL321S-2 PLL LNBF with 300KHz (or better) stability.  This LNBF improves reception capability on all receivers.  If you are using MPEG4 receivers this LNBF will give you a better and more stable reception.  We are getting reports of vast improvements on channels that were tiling and blocking before.  Even channels that could not be received now become not only available but rock solid.

The better traditional LNBFs give about 1.5MHz (1,500 KHz) stability.  Lots of the low end LNBFs have 3MHz (3,000 KHz) stability.  You can get by with these on MPEG2 SD with few problems, but with MPEG2 HD you should consider stability of 1.5MHz a absolute minimum.  Even then you can see some problems.  MPEG4 is a different animal.  The compression is greatly increased, making stability a major issue.  MPEG4 HD jams tons of data in even smaller spaces.  Properly rendering your MPEG4 signals requires better LNBFs with high stability.  Your traditional LNBF is no longer good enough.  As this technology of higher compression and faster transfers improves the requirements for higher stability increases. 

I have heard lots of complaints that MPEG4 receivers won't get all the available channels or some channels are seriously tiling and freezing.  Most likely this is not a receiver problem, but a problem delivering good stable signal to the receiver.  Think about it.  When we went from MPEG2 to MPEG4 we made a huge leap in technology of receivers.  It stands to reason that we need the same huge leap of technology in our LNBFs.  We have provided this for you in our Avenger PLL321S-2 PLL LNBF

The good news is that our Avenger PLL321S-2 PLL LNBF is priced in the same range as the traditional LNBFs making it a no brainer to upgrade your LNBF.  Don't install a new receiver without installing a new Avenger PLL321S-2 PLL LNBF. 

DMS International has always lead the satellite technology field and it comes as no surprise that DMS International is the first to introduce PLL LNBFs at a reasonable price.  You can count on DMS International to keep you up to speed with our ever changing technology.
