Good afternoon all.

This is my first post. Am hoping to find some help. I am in iraq and had a guy set me up a sattelite system. It is a Star dual card reciever, that has some sort of sofware update in it. This was connected to nilesat to recieve showtime arabia. A second sattelite was then connected to unscramble the channels. It worked really well. I have moved to a different location and am trying to set the system up again. The problem i have is that i dont know what sattalite the second sat needs to be connected to to unscramble showtime. Could anyone help me?? am trying to get set up for the new premiership season

Moved your post from a totally unrelated thread.

Unfortunately probably only the guy who set it up initially will be able to tell you what to do, can you not ask him?

These systems normally connect to the internet for update.

Well I can't see that you will be able to guess at the satellite, are there no clues in the receiver setup menu, it should have the second satellite listed in the DiseqC table.
