Can someone help me.

I`m using a Strong SRT 4355 Satellite receiver and its been working fine.
I`ve used it on a motor and in fixed dish all working ok.

I`ve never had my motor set up correctly (but I was only ever interested
getting a couple of Sat`s anyway)

Astra 19e
Astra 28e
Hotbird 13e

I`ve also used it in the fix position all ok. But to day I just want to put it on
16.0°E Eutelsat W2 in a fixed position without using a motor.

It will let me save it (I can see it scanning and picking up the channels)
but it will not let me save it. When I press the SAT button its only showing
the 3 sats :-

Astra 19e
Astra 28e
Hotbird 13e

Its not showing 16.0°E Eutelsat W2


Can anyone help me, thanks

In what way are you sure you are on 16 East if you cannot view the channels? What equipment are you using to determine that fact?

Try doing a factory reset, you may have exceded the channel storage space.

I`m def` on it. I`m using a Rover meter (I set the freq` myself) Its scanning the ch`s in the receiver I can see them going in.

Its when I go to find the sat in the menu the sat is not there just the 3 other Sats Hotbird,Astra 19 and Astra 28.

I think its not saved it or if it has cannot get at it?? If anyone has the same Sat Receiver it would be good to talk through it with them its a Strong STR 4355 Evolution. I think I`m doing something wrong with the setup/menu.

But the Dish is 100% spot on 16e I`m sure of that

GOT it after the factory reset I can see it. I was only getting a few CHs just 2 transponders even though there was a big list. With me doing a factory reset the Chs might not be updated. As says 2002 in the Strong info`

I`ve put some in manualy but its very long winded. As I`ve just bought a
DigitALB Card I only need the 5 main Ch`s (for the footy next season to get all ready, 12 months subs paid)

Is there no way I can put the lowest Freq (transponder) and work auto up to the highest with out putting each one in. But like I said not that I need it just for future ref` incase I move sat` chasing the footy incase it moves to another Sat`

First it was TPS via MR Cam then Art Card now this DigitALB card, still better than paying Sky £35+ just for the footy every month.
