1. If you wish to only tune to a specific Network or Bouquet of channels, move the cursor to highlight
the “Bouquet” box and use the LEFT/RIGHT keys to scroll through the pre-stored Bouquets. You
should now see both signal meters reading a good signal level and the receiver will prompt you to

2. If you only wish to download Free-to-Air channels, high-light the FTA box and turn the option to “on”.
Provided your dish is installed correctly and aligned to the relevant satellite, both the Signal and Data
bars should display a GREEN bar which denotes the following:
The first bar shows the actual satellite SIGNAL strength
You should see a GREEN bar showing your satellite signal is medium to good. If it is RED, this
normally indicates that either your dish/LNB set-up is not adequate for this satellite, or your dish is
not correctly aligned.
The second bar shows the quality of the DATA received
This GREEN bar indicates the DATA INTEGRITY of the signal received. If the bar is RED, this
indicates that the DATA received is unreliable. This could cause the picture to break up, or
disappear completely.
Note: If “No signal found” is displayed, check that the values entered are correct and are valid for
the satellite your dish is installed for. (Please also refer to the “Advanced Users” and “Trouble
Shooting” section to check that your LNB settings are correct).

Selecting different audio channels:
In digital satellite broadcasts, multiple audio languages can be simultaneously transmitted by the
programme provider.
Default audio setting:
The user can first select a default audio language via the “Preferences” menu for the receiver. Once
the default audio language has been stored, all newly found TV/Radio channels will then be stored
with the selected default audio language.
Multi-Channel Audio:
The broadcasters may transmit more than one language for any channel. By pressing the “LANG” key
on the handset, the user can quickly find out what other languages are available for that channel. If the
left side column of the Audio Control menu shows a selection of different languages, the user can
select and store a new default language for that channel only - for that channel the receiver will always
return to the newly stored default language.
Sometimes two different languages are broadcasted with one language on the Left Audio Channel
(L) and a different language on the Right Audio Channel (R). When this is available, the “Audio
Channel” column of the “Audio Control” menu will display the available audio channels and the user
can then select either channel L or R for the desired language. Otherwise the default L+R setting
would have the two languages“mixed” together and they will be heard at the same time.
From this menu, the left column indicates the
default languages available and the right column
indicates the available audio sub-channels. The
User may then move the cursor to the L or R subchannel and listen to decide whether the required
language is available.

Notes:
The left column is the default language setting and this option is storable. If the user changes the
default language to another language, any new programmes which do not support the new default
language may become silent. When this happens, the receiver will display the Missing Audio icon on
the Information Banner, you can press the LANG key to select a different default language.
Missing Audio icon
Many broadcasters transmit multiple languages and programmes on a number of audio sub-channels.
With this menu the user can listen to any of the sub-channels by moving the cursor to highlight them
when available. The L and R audio sub-channels can vary from programme to programme so this is
not stored and will revert to L+R (Stereo) when you change channel.

Tuning Modes:
Auto Tuning
From the select frequencies, the receiver will automatically search for all other frequencies within the
tuning range and downloads them automatically into the receiver. Once the channels have been
downloaded, all the TV and Radio channels will be displayed separately allowing the user to inspect
them and decide whether they are to be stored or aborted. This option is not available in Manual tuning
mode (F1).
Network and Bouquet Tuning
Within a digital broadcast transmission, many other network frequencies are provided to guide the
receiver to tune to other Networks. Network tuning enables the receiver to download other channels
from the same network. Use Bouquet tuning you only want to download channels from one channel
frequency group. Bouquet Tuning is used when only the channels from the desired frequency are to be
downloaded.
PID tuning
Apart from the usual channel parameters (Frequency,
Symbol Rate, Polarity and FEC value), the broadcaster
must include additional information (known as Packet
Identifiers or PIDs) in their transmission to allow autotuning to work properly.

Use the F1/ F2 and 0-9 keys to enter the PID values.
When you have finished and are ready to store and display that channel, press OK.
Note:
In order for manual tuning to be successful, the PCR PID must be entered. In many cases the PCR
PID is not published. Fortunately, in nearly all cases the PCR is the same as the Video PID or the
Audio PID or 8190 in decimal or 1FFE in hexadecimal.
The Teletext PID is optional and can be ignored when the value is unknown.

The default LNB setting is as per the diagram above.
LNB Power:
This toggles the LNB power supply on and off. This option should be set to ON. With the LNB power
switched off, all control signals for LNB, switches and DiSEqC will also be disabled.
LNB A1 to D4:
Up to sixteen universal LNBs can be conntected to your digital receiver. For each LNB (A1 to D4) you
may specify the type and control method of the LNB.
L.O. Freq:
Enter the Local Oscillator Frequency in MHz of your LNB here. For LNBs with two L.O. frequencies,
enter the Low Band L.O. frequency in the Low column and the High Band L.O. frequency in the High
Column. (e.g. For a Universal LNB, the Low Band L.O. frequency is 9750 MHz and the High Band L.O.
Frequency is 10600 MHz).
Tone:
Your digital receiver is equipped with switch controls 12V, 22kHz tone, as well as DiSEqC 1.0
DiSEqC:
With the DiSEqC options switched on you can select between LNBs from A to D.
Note:
You may use these controls independently to select different LNBs, and in addition you can use either
in conjunction with DiSEqC switchs to increase the number of LNBs used. Up to maximum of sixteen
LNBs can be used.
Note: Universal LNBs uses 22kHz to switch between Low Band and High Band and therefore the
22kHz control column is automatically disabled when Univ is selected in the LNB column.
