Hi george - your folder should look like this, and your scan of hotbird should produce this.

Go to http:\\www.joshyfun.cjb.net
click on 'transponders in .ini format' then get the zip file from the bottom of the page.
Unzip the file then replace the files in your transponder folder with those.

Hi,
On Hotbird with pre installed frequencies in Strong 4410 I got more that 1100 stations. Most of them coded.
