usually i get about 80% successful locks with DVB-S (the logs are in
http://xkodi.svobodno.com/stb0899/nrjhits.tar.gz) and 90% successful
locks with DVB-S2 (the logs are in
http://xkodi.svobodno.com/stb0899/pro7hd.tar.gz), but from time to
time i get "FE_DISEQC_SEND_BURST failed: Connection timed out" message
and when that message shows i get significant drop in successful locks
- only 9 successful locks out of 20 tries (the logs are in
http://xkodi.svobodno.com/stb0899/nrjhits_diseqc.tar.gz), so i'm
wondering what "FE_DISEQC_SEND_BURST failed: Connection timed out"
means and why it shows and affects so badly the locking ability
