Hi there techies,
I recently bought this reciever off trademe. So far, no luck in trying to figure out how this thing works. It has autoscan...but, it's asking for "LNB freq" --2 sets of 5 numbers. Then, "Scan Mode" , which is set to "Free', then "22K" -off, then "DiSeqC"- off.
It also has this "Edit LNB Freq" option, again, asking for 2 sets of 5 numbers...i've tried 11300(?), wont work!
Then here's the "Parameter Set-up" for TV3...with LNB Freq (2 sets), Trans Freq, Symbol Rate (22500), Polarity(H), 22k(Off), DiSEqC(off), Video PID(0512), Audio PID(0650), PCR PID(0512).
How about the "Satellite Guide"? the values are currently all zeros, do I need to input any values here?
Believe me, Ive tried google and evrything...even contacted the seller, but he's not much of a help either!
BTW, i can get Mindgames (plays music but no picture) and Test channel (that with those vertical rainbow strips) Laughing
Plsssssss, help. Cry

If you can still get Mindgames and Test ok, then your LNB settings seem ok. You will probably just need to scan for the channels.

Try: Freq=12456, polarity=H, symbol rate=22500. Also try 12483 H 22500. With "Network Search" = on, if there is such an option. And PIDs set to auto.


Otherwise enter each channel manually from:

e.g. TV3:  LNB Freq=same as for Mindgames, Trans Freq=12456, polarity=h, symbol rate=22500, PCR=512, VPID=512, APID=650.
