    Default Blindscan of dvbdream and zero db SNR for all transponders.

    now open both ini files in notepad and compare. They will different, as when saved in ebspro's DVB dream ini format. Its different to the actual format dvbdream saves in its own ini
    I can see that something has changed in dvbdream for the blindscan. You mentioned before the SNR's are all 0 and after a check your correct with v 3.7.1. However I found a post showing a screen shot that it used to so I am guessing Streamreader has changed. They were using v 1.2.4.79 streamreader back in 2019.

    See this post for the screenshot

    That post was 12 years ago. Yes the SNR disappeared at later date when using DVB Dream as the blind scanner

    This is the defaults, for in DVb Dream

    streader.dev size 105 KB (107,520 bytes)
    streamreader.dll 1.2.4.1406.dll 4 jan 2017

    if you go to device in Dream it says "streamreader 1.2.23" I'm not sure where it pulls that number from Perhaps the streader.dev internal entry?


    In ebs pro 18.0.0.4 we have installed .dll 1.2.5.192

    latest is 1.2.5.194, i'm about to try

    In Crazyscan with 6983 TBS card we are using Version 1.0.2.185 and streamreader.dll 1.2.5.192 and yes its flakey we find Crazy scan locks up, always has been unstable

    --------------------------------------------------

    I found copy of streamreader 1.2.4.83 and put it into dvbdream 3.7.1 ...lo and behold we have SNR figures.
    The dll is dated 29/08/2020 (2320Kb)
    I found the DLL & INI as used in Smartdvb v 0.5.3 beta that my mate has. This version streamreader is by CrazyCat as is the latest version that wont give SNR figures in dvbdream.

    It looks like some SNR's are a 2db higher in dvbdream compared to ebspro both using same streamreader 1.2.4.83
    Be interesting to get a history of version changes from CrazyCat from 1.2.4.83 to v 1.2.4.1406

    Cheers

    I looked under Satellite TV and no sub forums for streamreader so I searched for "Streamreader" and no much came up that I could see.
    Is the info still on this forum and if so where?
    I will in the meantime checkout the link you just provided at satellitescommunity.de

    Cheers

    Hi, has anyone seen a program called "Carrier Search and Constellation monitoring".
    I think is is part of another program but can't find out much about it.

    As I can't post a screen shot direct on this forum, take a look here. ...Hope the url works ok.



    OR is there another free standalone program to do same.

    I played with IQ Monitor Lite but it wouldnt save the blind scan giving an I/O error and also don't show constellation diagram.
    The Pro version 1013 executes but freezes up on Windows 10 for any of its functions.

    Thats screenshot is from crazyscan when you double click a carrier I also played around with iqmonitor 1.0.13 lastnight and had similar issues with it crashing. No luck in finding the later 1.0.30 version

    I am running v 1.0.2.185 of CrazyScan on C-Band and its very particular where you click to get it up and never directly on the transponder blindscan line.
    Worked out I needed to click the World symbol to start blind scan of sel freq to bring up the constellation diagram etc.

    One issue I have is I can't get it to launch for 4195H on 68.5E (Sky News) as RF scan shows a fall off only from 4180H.
    Blindscan finds it ok however.
    If get it up the carrier search & constellation window else where and type to 4195 freq in I can get the constellation up OK. SNR shown is 4.7 db Low but I get 6db in ebspro Sig analyzer and solid video in dvbdream.

    Thanks.

    I have had some success with IQMonitor.
    It took a while but I found version 2.2.0.7 and it works fine on Win10, once I got my head around it.
    Here is a link to download it, the download is at the bottom of the thread on Page 8.



    Here is my operational Screenshot for 4148H on JCSAT 2B for Himawari





    IQMonitor does not appear to be perfect in a Blind Scan so I discovered on 68.5E Hor. It cannot find 4195H transponder, and clicking at the 4195 MHz on the RF scan then click Get Lock in Tuning window it gets a lock but oddly a fake lock.
    N.B. [ Edit] Reducing 5000 down to 2000 gve a 6db snr lock. Did a spectrum rescan and blind scan but transponder would not show itself.
    This transponder is 6db SNR in ebspro and also scans in with dvbdream and clear picture for SKY TV.

    It is rather slow getting a constellation but is presented better than crazyscan.
    Here is a a screen shot of The RF scan, missing 4195H and 4195H locked




    The only thing is the format of the transponder file *.trs is not the ini file our other programs use. Maybe it TSReader format ?
    Here is an example

    I have that version also. Its very confusing, most refer to using his PRO version. 1.0.30 the 2.20 looks way different. It might be worth registering and asking just what is the latest?

    The 2.20 is mentioned in posts there back in 2018..
