I have a Technomate TM-5500 DACI receiver but it seems to have less than a 1,000 channel capacity. If I were to download the latest software would it increase the channel capacity of the receiver and is it easy to do please?

Correct me if I'm wrong but you should be able to get 3500 channels with the 5500 series.
These will also include radio channels (I think) so it might be a good idea to delete all radio channels (if not required).
I don't think downloading the latest software will increase the channel capacity, but it is still recommended, and it is not that hard to do. Look at Technomate user manual for instructions.
Hope this is of some help

Delete all the transponders that show strength but low quality ie 20% and also delete all the radio channels as mentioned by Rob. You can easily fill up the memory with non active transponders.

I don't have a manual for this receiver. I have a large dish with 2 lnbs - one directed at Hotbird 13 E and the other at Astra 19 E. If I scan for channels and saved data for one satellite and then scan the 2nd satellite, it looses all the data for the first satellite. Do you know why this is please?

You could have a look at the technomate site and see if there is a download of the handbook.

I have a Technomate 5500 DACI for my motorised system and have currently over 3,000 channels (TV and radio) on it. Before doing a re-scan I delete all channels and redundant transponders on the particular satellite which usually produces a clean scan. The absence of a properly detailed manual is about the only minus point I can find with this receiver.
