has many lightning storms, buy polarized surge protectors and surge protectors for the power
line, telephone line, and RF cable to protect your system from damage. Never attempt to
connect or disconnect any wires during a thunderstorm or lightning storm.
Note to the system installer:
The purpose of this reminder is to call your attention to Article 820-40 of the NEC that provides
guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the
grounding system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical. The illustration is an
example of antenna grounding according to the National Electrical Code Section 810, "Radio and
Television Equipment." Check your local building and electrical codes for other restrictions on antenna
grounding.
1.
For the ground wire, use No. 10 AWG (5.3mm2) copper, No. 8 AWG (8.4mm2) aluminum, No. 17
AWG (1.0mm2) copper-clad steel or bronze wire, or larger.
2.
Secure the antenna lead-in
wire and ground wires to the
house with stand-off
insulators spaced 4 ft.
(1.22mm) to 6 ft. (1.83mm)
apart.
3.
Mount the antenna discharge
unit as close as possible to
the place where the lead-in
enters the house.
4.
Use a jumper wire that is no
smaller than No. 6 AWG
(13.3mm2) copper, or the
equivalent, when using a
separate antenna grounding
electrode. See NEC Section
810-21(1).
5.
In areas that are heavily prone to lightning storms install a lightning rod mounted to the top of the

Using Your Remote
All around the world, people just like you are enjoying
entertaining, educational, and informational programming
with a Motorola digital satellite receiver. In addition to
offering outstanding picture and sound quality, your
receiver comes with a remote control that can be
programmed to operate your receiver, TV and auxiliary
equipment.
A Word About Modes. To enable the remote control to
operate your receiver, your TV, and your VCR, it may have
as many as five main modes of operation: SAT mode, TV
mode, DVD mode, VCR mode and AUX mode. This
means that when you press the SAT, TV, DVD, VCR or
AUX keys on the remote control, you enable it to control
each of these devices, one at a time. Naturally, some of the
remote control keys have more than one function,
depending upon which mode you are using at the time.
Keep this in mind as you read the descriptions for each
remote control key. Also keep in mind that some SAT
functions are available only within SAT mode. Among
these special functions are access to the menus through the
OPTIONS key, use of the Interactive Program Guide (IPG)
through the GUIDE key, and the ability to select a satellite
by using the SAT key.

Programming the Remote Control
The remote control is set at the factory to control all of the satellite receiver
functions, but to use it to operate your TV, DVD, VCR and auxiliary components
as well, you must "program" it for the brand you own. Follow these instructions to
program the remote to control your TV, DVD, VCR and auxiliary (AUX)
components.
Follow these instructions to program the remote to control your TV.
1.
Turn on the desired component for programming.
2.
Use the table that appears later in this section to find the manufacturer brand.
3.
After the manufacturer’s brand name is a four-digit code number (or several
four-digit codes).
4.
Press and hold the appropriate mode key on the remote control for at least
three seconds—until the light on your remote flashes.
5.
When the light flashes, key in the first of the four-digit codes (listed in the
table) for your component using the number keys on the remote control. Make
sure to do this accurately and without a long delay.
6.
If the remote control "accepts" the code, you will see several rapid flashes of
the light. If it does not flash, repeat steps 4, and 5. After the remote control
accepts the code, press the POWER key on the remote control to make sure
the remote control is able to turn your component off. This means it is
functioning properly.
7.
If your component does not respond to the remote control POWER key, even
though it has "accepted" the manufacturer’s code, repeat steps 4 and 5 using
the second four-digit code from the table. If this does not work, try the third
code, etc., until the remote control accepts the code and your component
responds to the remote control POWER key.

Using Your Remote
If Your Four-Digit Code is not in the Tables (Scanning)
If you try to program your remote control using the four-digit codes, and the
remote control does not work correctly, you may be able to find a code that works
by using the "scanning" process.
1.
Turn on the TV.
2.
Press the TV key for at least three seconds—until the LED blinks.
3.
The following steps explain how to "scan" through the TV codes stored in
your remote control using the vkeys. (The LED will not be lit while the
vkeys are depressed.
-
While pointing the remote control at your TV, press the5key to scan
upward to the next code. (Use the6key to return to the previous code.)
-
If the transmitted code is the correct one, your TV will turn off,
responding as if its POWER key were pressed.
-
If your TV does not respond, depress the5key to try the next code.
When your TV turns on or off as a result of the transmitted code, you
will know that you have found the correct code.
-
When you have found the correct code (power to your TV is toggled on
or off), press the ENTER key. This will store the manufacturer’s code.
The LED will then flash rapidly several times and turn off.
The DVD, VCR and AUX mode buttons are labeled for convenience. To scan for
a code in these modes you must first program it with a valid code and then follow
the steps for scanning.
NOTE: If your component is not listed in the tables and/or the codes for your
brand are not accepted by the remote, you will need to use the remote originally
manufactured for your unit.

If You Have More Than One Satellite Receiver
If you have more than one receiver, you may want to prevent the remote controls
from affecting the other receivers. To prevent this kind of interference, you must
"pair" each remote control with one receiver. In order to do this, you will have to
assign a new "address" to each pair of remote controls and receivers so that each
pair functions independently of the others.
Using the remote control press the Menu button to bring up the Menu screen on
the receiver monitor (TV).
•
Choose Options, choose Change System Settings.
•
Choose Installation Settings.
•
On the Installation Settings menu, choose Set Remote Control Address. Now
follow the instructions on the Remote Control Address screen.
•
If you have multiple receivers, you will have to change the address on each of
them. Choose from following addresses: 0000, 0001, 0002, or 0003.
To program your remote control for each receiver, hold down the SAT key on the
remote control until the light flashes. Once the light begins to flash enter the
desired address.
Replacing the Remote Control Batteries
When the remote control batteries are worn out they must be replaced. Replace
both batteries within two hours of removing the batteries to retain your
programmed codes. The remote control uses two AA batteries. Use only high
quality, non-corrosive batteries designed for use in electronic equipment. To
replace the batteries:
-
Remove the cover by pressing down the back panel indentation and
removing the panel off the remote control.
-
Position each battery in the battery compartment so that the flat base (-)
is against the spring and so that the raised contact (+) is against the
terminal. Make sure the batteries are securely seated.
-
Replace the cover.

Your Receiver
Most viewers find it more convenient to use the keys on the remote control rather
than the keys on the front panel of the receiver. But even though there are far
fewer keys on the receiver, they still allow you to control most receiver functions.
After plugging in your receiver, allow it to "warm up" for 30 seconds before use.
Make sure to tune your TV to Channel 3 or 4 (the channel you use for your VCR)
when using the receiver if instructed to do so by your installer.
