Due to popular demand, I had to do this for my fans. It is a statement of fact that tracking Tstv channels easily is tricky. Interestingly, it is also the easiest to track(As long as you follow this guide to the letter. as you will find soon find out.
Especially relevant: Major satellite TV accessories and their uses
I went to the extreme in getting this together. I with the help of a friend, helped another friend to track TSTV Africa in his house. From the get-go, we knew it was going to be very difficult doing so in the customers’ location. This is due to the presence of tall trees and buildings. I was on it for two days trying to track it in the guy’s building all to no avail.
Just about when we were given up on it, He came with a suggestion that we should move to two buildings away from his. On arriving at this building, we easily locate a low structure with enough space for what we wanted to do. We set to work immediately and within 15 minutes, we tracked TSTV Africa channel. This is something we couldn’t get for 48 hours because of obstruction/interference. I hope their signal will be improved upon before they commence official broadcasting of their contents.
My good and wonderful people, let me now share my experience in tracking it with text, photos and videos.
Tracking Tstv channels easily the requirements
I will give below, the necessary requirements for tracking this bird. These are indispensable pre-requisites without which you will fail to track it. This is relevant for now until at least the signal is improved.
- First off, determine if you can even get the tstv Africa’s beam/signal in your country/state/city. This article here will help you with it. Just make sure you visit the link with your resources and not with a VPN
- Use a location that is devoid of obstruction/interference. At least making sure there is none in view. You have a zero chance of receiving TSTV signal if there is an obstruction.
- Secondly, get a minimum of a 90cm dish. I will recommend you go with a 1 meter(100cm) dish if you are new to satellite tv installation
- Furthermore, you need to buy an FTA decoder. There are as many FTA/standalone decoders out there as there are STB manufacturers. The list is endless. Let me give you a non-exhaustive list. A Strong 4669x decoder or newer. I recommend 4920 and newer because 4920 is an HD decoder. In addition, you can use just about any FTA HD decoder. For example Qsat, Azsky g6, Gsky all models, freesat, super esat, tiger decoder all models, alphabox, dreambox, openbox, HDtech and so on
- You need a good stafinder like Freesat or satlink. You can even use the ever reliable Bluetooth sat finder. In the absence of a capable and tested sat-finder, please use a strong decoder to do the tracking. I will advise you use a strong decoder. The best strong decoder for tracking still remains 4663x and 4669x. These two attracts high signal strength and they are especially good for satellite with weak signals
- You will also need to get a good single solution LNBf
