In the immortal words "do not panic" If you get this all wrong you can come back to it and make it work later one (see links below)
This is the satellite configuration screen. Here we can choose three possible settings. The first two options below default to Ku band universal LNB's (The global universal LNB - for NA users and C or S band users see below)
No disecq for one satellite, simple for up to 4 satellites and the complex configuration for a disecq motor or the complex configuration of a wave frontier dish with up to 16 satellites.
In our case we choose a simple configuration like a Dish with up to four satellites. Normally the Hotbird sat is disecq A and Astra is diseqc B. In our example usually the Astra 2 satellite is at 3 and a fourth satellite is depending of your own choice. At the pictures below is shown how to do this.
Once you set this up press the GREEN button to Save your changes, if you need to change anything else you can do it later under the Menu Button, Setup, Satellites & Transponders, Satellite Configuration
If you are in north America and have a Dish network LNB installed in your satellite dish, then select this option to tune your dish Tv channels.
By selecting this option your dish electronics setting (LNB) will be configured to work with the satellites located at
Please NOTE: as the on-board satellites.xml file is only defined as each satellite and not further split by each satellite band it is impossible to tune both the C and Ku bands on any one satellite.
Step 3 - Changes required
In step three you will notice this screen has been changed from the original on your DM box.
- Select the drop down menu at the top of the screen and change it non-standard user defined configuration.
- Select the satellite you require by highlighting the satellite name and selecting from the drop down menu
- Select the LNB and press OK. Now define the settings for each LNB you have. Simply enter in the required details like the examples below.
- Select any of the 22hz diseqc / multiswitch details you require by configuring the 22HZ and Voltage selections
Standard Universal LNB setup (PLiŽ default setting) for all countries but North America
USA standard Circular Universal LNB
Ku Single LNB (there is NO such thing as a standard Ku single LNB as this is different in many countries i.e. 10700 in Australia)
