    Sorry for late reply all!

    100% the pommie, he is after that 1 second advantage where possible

    How would one go about getting the signal on the first bounce? (ive never done any sat tv stuff at all)

    He has contacted sky with no luck (not a suprise there)

    And legitimately a friend asking.. But deffaintly wants a few second advantage for betting.. No secrets here 😂

    If u want to go on an expedition get a Land Rover, if u want to come home from an expedition get a Landcruiser!

    Waste of time, what betting agency allows bets while the horses are on the track and running?

    I dont know re the Autralian tracks or satellites but he may need access to biss codes if the first bounce signals are scrambled in biss. You really need someone with first hand knowledge of the protocols being used and what is possible re first bounce signals.

    re: "first bounce" Most racetracks in Australia use a terrestrial link ie: not satellite, I think they would be Microwave direct to a communications tower or perhaps Fibre Optic cable. The exceptions are country tracks where this is unavailable or uneconomical. I've seen many a satellite feed from Sapphire Coast track which is some distance from Bega carved out of the native coastal bush so I assume this is a case where a direct line of sight to a tower is not available. Then there are the country tracks that only have one or a few meetings a year, this is where TRP and SkyRacing use Satellite feeds predominately Optus D2 152E but I have seen a few on D1 or Intelsat 19 when D2 is under heavy use for other events. On only one occasion that I can remember was a link encrypted using biss. NOW for the the BIG exceptions where a metropolitan feed does appear they are at carnival time like today Sat. Golden Sipper day at Rosehill Sydney Optus D2 152E TBS009 SNG Rosehill 12661V 7500 "SkyRacing" feed and Optus D1 160E Astra 3 "channel 7" 12661V 7500. Both FTA and in HD.

    Sorry for bumping an old thread but thought it would be better than starting a new one.

    I'm also looking for info on accessing on course feeds. Don't care about latency or anything like that but would be cool to see them parading, heading to the barrier etc.

    What size dish would I be looking at to access these feeds? I've got the old standard Foxtel dish (65cm?) but I'm assuming that's going to be inadequate.

    Thanks for any help 😊

    You can access Racing Feeds thru Optus D2 Ku ,A "65 will do the job and there are a few Feeds on that sat every now and then. I can pick up SKY 1 and 2 FTA on Measat 3 C-band using a 3 mtr. Mesh, you might be able to pick it up with a 2.4 mtr. Mesh or Solid dish. Sky 3 is encrypted on that sat. There is another FTA Racing Channel on that Sat with Italian Audio...
