I have looked through several film clips on the Amiko A4K Combo but none show the Blind Scan Function ?
Can you please give me a screen shot of the Blind Scan menu,
Thank you.
Sure. from a channel press OK, which brings up the channel list, the press 'Menu' which brings up the 'Channel Manager' scroll over to 'Installation' OK that
select 'Satellite Install' then you see the satellite list press 'Red' for scan, switch on 'Blind Scan' and you select H/V scrambled or FTA, no other parameter control is possible like the Octagon.

Pictures not brilliant I'm afraid. I have my Astra 19.2 set up for Ka band BTW

Was the Blind Scan pre-installed ?

I assume that the Blind Scan will work on any satellite in my arc 53 east to 58 west ?

My target satellites will be 13 east,10 east, & 7 east in the Ku band mainly for feeds in UHD,

Thanks for your replies.

Not a multistream this one, normal transmission (now gone). ERT will turn to multistream soon, if not testing already.
I have to clarify that SX88 is NOT blindscanning multistreams, although it leads people to believe it is. When MTS is turned on in blindscan, all it does is scan tps with the pre-stored multistream parameters. That's not actual/real PLS codes discovery!
PLS codes discovery is only done in PCs with the appropriate cards and takes tons of time!

That was not a multistream, it was a regular transmission though. I said many times before that SX88 cannot autodiscover multistreams, only the ones with pre-stored values. The only chance it has to find a new MIS is if it works with one of the pre-stored values they have in the firmware.

Ok it's been announced on FB.
If that 5008 does not need "StreamRelay" then I'm getting it.

Fair play to Octagon, their support seems really good. Any question I've asked they have been more than happy to help.
I emailed Mutant a few times and sent messages on their site and no reply :N

Welllllllllll...... Maybe. But they promised blind scan on the 4008 since it came out and I believe it still hasn't been implemented.

Even this Miraclebox does Blindscan, shouldn't be lot to ask in 2018! This is a quick box, but streamrelay and no multistream.

The same can be said for many a box running Enigma 2...
