:-rofl2

I thought it was to good to be true. DB now working with Gemini. emus working;) but when I did a sat scan on hotbird I only got 95 transponders and 567 channels. Is there some sort of filter, of packing different channels into different places?

This is Dreambox humour, yes?

You mean a bouquet.

Get the channel listing, select the channel, hit menu, add to specific bouquet, select FAVS from the bouquet list. Then when you have tge hang of that, create markers. Then move them into a sensible order.

You can do all this by downloading to your PC and using DBedit (or something similar). I do it all by handset :)

No.

If I download official image I can download all cahnnels available on hotbird.

If I use Gemini 2.4 db only downloads half of them. (not the good ones). So I tried to downlaod transponders manually, it says I have done that but I can't find them in services or providers?

Weird or what?

You then need to scan the satellite.

In theory you may be able to download a "list" off the net e.g.Pet123- I've never got them to work. Get your sat/ transponder list. Move your dish there (stored your sat position?) and then scan.

Move to next satellite and repeat.

Or have I misunderstood again? I'll get my jacket....

No. My dish is set at 13e My Mondeal receiver connected and scanned on Hotbird. I have over 1500 channels. When I connect DB. It scans the same but only 95 transponders are found and only 900 ish services.

when I look in services or channels, vox,Motors tv, Absat, 12092 etc are not there. OK so I try to downlaod them manually, it scans them and then they disappear.

where can they be???????.

OK... when setting up 13E you nudged it east or west until you got the strongest signal and then stored the position, and then scanned it?

That's all you can do. Best done when not raining.

I'm in the Midlands and have scanned Absat6-9 but they send nothing. Vox yes (but I don't speak German), Motors TV 1158 yes, 12092 No.

Are there any other English channels?

Is your dish arc perfect?

Sorry can't be of more help.

Yes I think you must be right, it must be the clear sky. although it says on manual scan that 12092 is locked on. I can't get xxl either, German but the pictures are good!

Here in Devon it a beautifull still clear night, I will try tomorrow when there is a gale forecast, my luck as I am the boat.

Cheers

Tim.

It should be better on a clear night, worse when windy and/ or raining ;)

Just updated your PM, for got to add that you need to get a new settings list, off the site add i gave you. Then using flash wizzard pro enter the new settings list. And re scan of hotbird will sort you out. Have you got fwpro up and running ??and dont forget to enter the ip no of your box and same passwords. It will only take a minute to do. Did you sort out your url on dreambox Yet.

I find that downloading settings and satellite XML directly to the box causes problems. I would suggest the following:
Open up your old list in DBE and then use the "compare with services from dreambox or on disc. Once you have updated the channel list go to the tools again and press "Update Satellites XML" Then FTP back to box, reload and see what happens.
