    Default zgemma h2h - blank + freezing channels

    Hello all

    I usually find what I'm looking for on the forum but this time I'm stuck.

    I've set up my zgemma h2h using the Openatv5.3 Backup Image, however most channels are blank and the ones that do work freeze after 10-16 seconds. For example: SS1 HD will freeze after 16 seconds (SS1 SD is blank) and BBC1 HD will freeze around 8-10 seconds, and most other channels are just a blank screen.

    In signal finder I get 73% SNR. I have configured the tuner to the Net ID for my area and I scanned using the ABM. I have tried a manual scan with the symbol rate for my area too, but I keep getting the same results: freezing and blank channels.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Is it freezing or signal breakup

    I think it would be worthy to check all coax conditions

    The cable signal reader doesn't work on ZGemma, it gives the same signal on all transponders, so not a good guide. Check the FTA channels, if they freeze, then it's definitely a signal issue. With the other channels, check what you're using to open them, especially if it's a cheap solution.

    If it's FTA then it's signal. If it's on non-FTA, could be signal or could be what you're using to open them.
