I don't know what it means either, but usually alter the setting if necessary to the one that works.

i think it must to do something with the modulation 8psk itself?
one dealer told me,on some hd receiver you need to set the pilot on,on others not,but i cant belive this,when it should be the same settings on every stb,when it has something to to with the modulation itself!
dm 800 has the settings auto,then it work all the time,when it setted wrong no channel will be found,in the manuals,of diffrent brands,also found no information about this,very strange..!

Euro 1080 used to say you needed Pilot on to get their transmission but not since they moved sats. Must be something to do with the way it's transmitted?
