Hi all,

I posted below regarding a Sagem x1 box. That keeps freezing every few seconds. I have noticed that I have a very high BER rate in the thousands. I think this could be my problem. How do I lower my BER rate?
I have put a forward path attenuator 6dB on the end and this has dropped the BER rate to 0 and no freezing problems thus far. I have noticed though that I have no signal. It says signal 0. The SNR says 63000 well the numbers keep moving between 62000 and that.
Anyway any advice on this. I am using the Sportster 1.75Uk_05 image the one in the download section.

Thanks for any advice.

All the best

Sparks

BER is Bit Error Rate and bellow 20,000 is better but NOT essential,
i have seen perfectly good pictures with it above 50,000

SNR is the most important (Signal to Noise ratio)
this is how much of the AVAILABLE signal it can see above the noise,and that is why even with
low Sig or poor BER if it can see enough signal above the noise it will work just fine.

So this MUST be above 55,000,if it is less you will have freezing picture and jerky movement or even no picture at all.
This reading is normally between 62,000 and 64,999.
And you may still get EPG but no picture with low SNR
