Hi everyone. Just got my Technomate 5500 CI up and running but what is this thing they put in with the receiver- it appears to be called a User Manual. If anyone has a Technomate I am sure I will strike a cord here. I am no techno bod but neither am I a complete plonker (half complete - maybe) Anyhow down to business: Can anyone who has mastered this machine tell me how to input a frequency manually so that I can go straight to it. I suppose it is simple when you know how. Help would be appreciated before I wear out the buttons.

You can download a (sort of) user manual from their site -

Thanks Llew. I will give it a go. I hope it is better than the one that came with the set.

Sorry, wasn't paying attention. Your manual has got to be a lot better than their online one :D

Select menu
select advance search
make sure the sat you are pointed to is listed at top and is the one you want
select NEW TP
enter the Mhz ie. 10630
enter the ksps ie. 27500
set polarisation to V or H
check you have a signal of more than 50%
save the TP
press OK to search that frequency
the channels should now start registering

Superb, Satslut. Many thanks for that. The receiver is good but the user guide is rubbish.
