    Default How to tune/setup a Digital Satellite Receiver


    Hi guys,

    I am currently in Sharjah, UAE.

    I have installed 2 dishes and receive Hotbird and NSS6.
    Due to certain voltage fluctations the memoy on my receiver keeps getting wiped out. I thus have to approach the local dish operators who charge me a hefty fee just for a 10-15 minute job of tuning it. Sometimes they intentionally dont tune some channles thereby starting the viscious cycle of me having to call them again n pay them. I am now totally fed up of this.

    Even though the voltage fluctuation problem has been fixed, i don want to eb at the mercy of these operators. Could any of u guys point me to some web site or give me some links where i cna elarn the basics of tuning the reciver, learning how to add/delete/modify a channel/satellite, learn abt transponders and which satellites i can receive in Sharjah etc.

    I have a simple receviev and can currently view ESPN Intl, Spice,etc. earlier i cud watch BBC Prime but not anymore..

    Any help would be highly appreciated

    Cheers

    Can you be more specific? What's the name/model of your receiver? You are looking at FTA chanells only? I suppose not, Spice is coded but anyhow, please give us more details.

    Hi Satwein,

    Receiver name is DigiSat. Its probably an old outdated cheap model. But it works. I can see Spice Platinum.. Its got a facility to manually enter keys into it. I am looking to receviving FTA + open any pay channels

    I have put dishes for hotbirs, nss6,nilesat
    More priority si to learn how toa dd channels, satellites,transponders etc and learn what these numbers like frequency etc mean..

    Cheers

    Since you have 3 dishes do you know if your installation technician hass installed a Diseqc switch 4x1 most likely he must have done so on the roof. You also need to know which dish is on which port of the diseqc i.e. 1 maybe Nilesat, 2 must be hotbird and so on. You can check in the menu of the receiver in the search setup to tell you how the installtion is done or else it is difficult. Also take some pictures and post it here so that we know how is the menu look like to help you further to scan all transponders of a particular satellite. Also try with network search on when searching it will search all transponders on the particular satellite once you start scanning.

    Hello friend,
    Just follow the receiver manual so you can get some idea.But every receiver has its own identity in displaying menu section . Please find manual tuning section, in that section you can add differencce freq., but careful in DiSEqC position because you are using more than than one antenna and check the LO freq., All the best.

    Dear,

    First of all make sure from the DISEQC switch which cable related to Hotbird and which one for NSS,, also make a note the size of the Dish(I prefer 120 CM Dish for NSS6).
    Now go to your receiver(You may need to check the manual for tuning)(every receiver have their own menu but the funtions are same), once you are ready to tune the channels - I prefer you make a print out of those satellite (Hotbird and NSS) channels list, and also you can manually tune those channels. For channel list go here

    my receiver is Digitallworld SFT 190M.before i upgraded to the latest software, i still can view ESP Int, Spice Platinum.

    after i upgraded i cannot view the 2 channels. with ESP Int there is audio but no video. for spice platinum totally black.

    i know basic adjustments. i tried to re-scan and input the keys for viaccess but it does not retain, i notice that the format to feed the keys was a little bit changed.

    please help as i am fun of watching sports telecast in ESP.

    thankyou
