Okay never seen this before SIgnal level 2 % but a quality of 65 % Why would that be?

Fortec Star Mercury II could it be the DVB-S2 change?

As far as I know, this signal is supposed to be DBV-S2 not DVB-S. However your observation is very interesting! My own satellite receiver is capable of both standards, but it doesn't tell me which standard is being used when it's tuned in. Perhaps BVN are mistakenly informed?

I have a friend that I can ask who is able to measure which standard is being used... I'll reach out and ask him...

Bedankt voor de cruciale informatie dat het een "gewoon" DVB-S signaal is!

Ik zie het nu ook:

DVB-S, op 11984MHz, FEC 1/2, 3600Ms/s
signal 60%, snr 75% (signal-to-noise ratio)
VIDEO: MPEG2 720x480 (aspect 3) 29.970 fps 3082.8 kbps (385.4 kbyte/s)

ter vergelijking, het oude signaal of 12076MHz is:
signal 58%, snr 59% (een stuk lager!)

Ik ben nu remote, dus het zal mij benieuwen hoe de recordings er vanavond uitzien!

Groetjes,
Johan

Well, I heard back from my other better-equipped friend.

Apparently, it might be possible for some older receivers to be able to decode the new signal, even though it isn't documented under the specific circumstances found here, thanks to some VERY clever engineering by the new satellite signal uplink provider.

Foretec Star Mercury II doesn't claim to be compatible with DVB-S2 when I searched for the specifications on Google.

My advice to all: try inputting the new settings and see if it works. If not, then you probably need to get newer-type receiver featuring "DVB-S2". Or change to Galaxy 19, if you are in USA, Hawaii, Canada or Mexico.

Anyone South of 10'N lattitude likely cannot use Galaxy 19.

Best of success to all!]

Good info and indeed Auke, I cannot get a signal so I am in the process of moving over to Galaxy 19. I'll let you know the results once I am over. Thanks for the research.
