    Default Help needed for a Newbie with Dreambox


    Hai,

    I have a motorized "C" band setup which was installed by a Pro. I have several Satellite positions already tuned in.
    The setup came with a generic receiver which has now seen the end of its day. I have replaced the generic receiver with a Dreambox DM500 with a view that I would get into Card sharing at some point.

    However at this point I just want to re tune all my FTA "C" band channels. Since I have the "C" dish is already motorised and is working fine I don't need anything fancy to be set up.

    Could somebody guide me thru either some instructions or a ref site on how how to get a sat defined in Dreambox, OK to just have one and have all my channels in that one since I manage the motor separately.

    I tried to fiddle with the setting and got lost with all the options "one satellite:, Two, Four, motorizex etc. not to mention the options such a high , low Freq, Voltate etc. etc.

    Obviously once I get a sat defined I will be able to load the transponder frequencies and run a scan to tune into them.

    Could somebody help or point me in the right direction.

    Many thanks

    hi m8,,if u r using another stb to actually move the dish,u need to use the non standard user defined setting,,,then use the yellow button to add the sats u want and assign them all to the same diseqc address eg:1
