Hi All,

I really hate joining up to places just to ask a question, but I've been reading other posts about this topic and would really like some Definitive Answers.

Does anyone have a DishTV S7070, and gets trackside on it?

Would you be able to tell me exactly how you've done this... as I don't have the box in my posession I need to work out how to do it before going around and doing it. (if this makes sense at all)

Cheers,

as far as I understand I need to use the scanning feature to look on another transponder.

Ect.

Any help is appreciated, Looking at the manual it looks like I just have to add the settings in that first link as they are written.

Hi, you need to do a scan of transponder 12671MHz Horizontal, Sym 22500, this is a sky transponder so depending on how the box responds and if it lists FTA and encrypted pids you may end up with some Sky stuff that you will not naturally be able to view.

Go to Satelite setup, then Transponder setup, scroll through the current transponders if there is one with the above details then do a scan, otherwise add a new transponder with those and scan. Once you have done that go do channel manager and clear out the Sky stuff that is of no use to you, trackside should be there.

Cheers
Cyril

PS I dont have one of these boxs to hand, but was at a clients the other day who had one, and it worked ok

Cheers Cyril, I've added Trackside to my MediaPortal channel list. I don't mean to hijack this thread, but are there any other FTA channels on other transponders etc I can add?

Hi, that same transponder does have TV1/2 (sky feeds) that are FTA other than that, no.

Obviously I assume you have already got the Vpol ones carrying SBS down to Tassie, these are 12648 Vertical, 12600 5/6,. As these are Vpol then depending on how/if you have other decoders connected that are using Hpol then you may not get this signal, also your dish needs keen skew (and general) alignment to get this.

I've never had any luck on my 60cm dish getting SBS, thinking of getting a 90cm new dish soon.

Hi, 60 or 64, I guess the latter, if correctly aligned (need to do a proper xpol null for skew) then even a 55 is fine, but then again where are you as that plays a part.

hmmm, know anyone who will come around and check the skew etc and adjust if necessary for a 'cashy'?
