A couple of our guys here have the same model, so hopefully they will be able to come up with some help and advice. :)

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Having used that model, there are quite a few anomalies with LNB voltage and frequency settings

Are you certain you have set the LNB settings on the menu to the right type?
Are you certain you have the bset position of motor for the satellite ?


Ive found (with the one here ) that is doesn't recognise certain frequencies from one polarity in the low band, and I dont think its anything to do with the polariser or the LNB.

hi thanks read all

i,m on hotbird and only have 2 TP's listed, so i did a network search and found none,
so i added one to see if it worked, it did
so do this mean i will have to add them all 1 by 1,
if so it will take me a year to do them all.

ps also do you have to put any thing in 8 vpid, 9 apid, and 10 pcr pid

Which firmware is in the receiver ? (a number appears on the front when you first plug it into the mains)

I think the earliest version had about 60 transponders for 13 East, so it may be that the original owner deleted the transponders from the receiver, a factory default/ firmware reset should bring them back.

The pids should appear automatically when you scan in a tp.

Theoretically yuo can go approx 60W to 60E from East Anglia, BUT it dependson dish size, satellite footprints, accuracy of dish pointing, lnb charactereistics etc.
