Humax VACI-5300 & DiSEqC



I've fitted a DiSEqC switch, to switch my two LNB's into the 'F' port on my humax VACI-5300 receiver. I cannot find any way of switching between the two LNB's without going into the setup menus. I was expecting to use the remote control to toggle the LNB's or even automatic selection. Can anyone offer any advice (the manual is not very helpful).

You have to assign your channels to the LNB you want to recive them on.

Then you set up the LNB via your menu to the DiSqC number you have it connected to.

This is a very short answer, if it is not clear please let me know, and I will try to be more explicit.

Did you know there is a HUMAX EGroup you can join? You can find it via:, it has several hundered members, and there are postings alomst every day.

My set is the F1 CI which is a bit older than yours, so the menus will probably be a bit different, but there are plenty of VACI owners in the group who will be able to put you straight.

There is also the HUMAX Official WebSite at:, and an unnoficial one which I have lost the URL for now, but I'm sure you will find it via your browser. if not come back to me and I will find it for you.
