Hello everybody,


The bargraph that appears when the Satelitte Pointer is activated shows the SNR, the AGC and the BER, levels. If the SNR is useful, the AGC is not significant of the quality of signal.

Is there another bargraph available in the plug ins, which gives an indication of signal quality, instead of AGC level.


Thank you for answer

The AGC was never significant... But users get used to it so we cannot remove it...


The real parameter for the quality of the signal (the FEC on the correct side of the tuners) is not available in all tuners as far I know. When it was available we could give a bit error value.... a long long long long time ago I made such thing for the DMM7000 (enigma1) which also changed some tuner parameters to increase the quality by fine tuning the tuner. Since the Enigma2 boxes I was never able to reintroduce this mechanism.


Shortly saying... we cannot give this information.


We can only approx. it by calculating the SNR when it is correctly presented in dB (which is already doubtfully) and the transponder parameters... But due to the SNR (in dB) is already an approx. thing doing it that way is also not helpfully...

Thank's for that answer, i understand it is not a priority for you. After all, i'll use the indications given by an external Satfinder like the SF-500. It seems to be a good and no too expensive one. I don't need a spectrum analyser .....


Have a nice day
