That is already good. It's pretty weird because on the meter that I use to allign the dish (SatLink WS-6933), I get around 14.9db but on the sat box I get around 16.2db on a good day and 15.8db average and I get paranoid and start thinking it's not well alligned.

It must be the box rather than the dish alignment.

I also think, some receivers have completely fanciful data
if I read the number of decibels given by the Hitube, I can say that my antenna
is very very well installed :lol:

I definetelly think that the box is either too sensitive or just displaying fancy numbers. Checked the highest I could get from each sat and they seem too high.

Probably a miscalculation in the Frontent.bb with their tuner, given the driver provides native DVB-API v5+. Does the satfinder show the same values?

Yes, satfinder also gives the same value, this problem has from the start (at least 8 months) been indicated to a representative
hitube or the importer in the OATV forum but there has been no change since.

What is also dramatic is that in none of the so-called specialist journals was this problem noticed.
like the fact that when you blindscan the DisecQ does not go from A to B

I have the same meter and get the impression that on some transponders it maxes out at 14.9db and won't read any higher.

Yes, I've seen that too.

are there any other sats that should be catchable with a 1.2m dish that is not on the list?

I've added 31.5 yesterday but not sure if there's any other satellite that can be scanned with a dish of that size.

Not that high but luckily not many obstructions on the east but having a hard time on the west - neighbors' extension blocks everything after 34.5w
