Hi!

I am unable to add a new satelite config. to my seatel 98 series. I have been reading the instructions where there are several preconfigured satelites:

Dish65 Dish Network @ 65W
ExpV91 Bell ExpressVu @ 91W
GLA 95 Galaxy Latin America @ 95W (DirecTV Latin America)
DTV101 DirecTV @ 101W
Dsh110 Dish Network @ 110W
Dsh119 Dish Network @ 119W
Dsh148 Dish Network @ 148W
HtBd13 Hot Bird @ 13E
Astr19 Astra @ 19E
Astr28 Astra @ 28E

But I dont understand how to add my own. I woud like to use Thor at 1W.

Any help is grately appreciated!

You can modify any of the first 7 unless the boat goes to American waters. None of them are available in Europe.

Thank you for the quick reply.

I tried, but there are not many values I can modify.

I can change NID, H freq, V freq, elevation and polarization.

What about position, symbolrate and so on?

I have been reading almost anything I could find for 2 days now.

A lot of people seem to have a more advanced control panel where they can input symbolrate and so on. But I cant and dont understand why...

Does anybody know the correct settings on the set-top box for a system like this?

Right now I have "universal lnb" and lnb power on. There are some tone settings, but I dont know if these are needed?

I spoke to Seatel in UK today. These systems aparantly just search the whole sky (on the given elevation) and idenity the bird on NID.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

That could be a very lengthy process and how does it compensate for the arc of the Clarke curve?
