Hi,

Quick and probably stupid question, but is it the normal to manually have to add new transponders into your receiver or does it depend on your receiver.

I have a comag portable satellite and it appears to be a manual process and I was thinking you could scan a satellite, but without knowing the transponders in the first place, that would be difficult, unless a transponder on satellite could send info about other transponders.

Also hope I have put this thread in the correct forum category, please move if incorrect and apologies up front if I have.

Cheers

Some receivvers have what is called Blind Scan, but most work on a list which can be manually updated. :)
