5.3 Glossary of Terms
DiSEqC
Digital Satellite Equipment Control. A Eutelsat protocol.
EPG
Electronic Program Guide. Information on the current program and
subsequent programs, sent by the program provider within the data
stream.
FEC
Forward Error Correction. The inclusion of additional data contained
in a transmitted block, to be used by the receiver in case of errors.
LNB (Low-Noise Block converter)
The LNB is an electronic unit mounted on the satellite dish. It
receives the microwave signals reflected by the dish and converts
them to electrical signals that can be used by the Satellite receiver.
Parental control
A feature that allows parents to lock programmes that they consider
unsuitable for children. A locked channel or program can only be
unlocked with a four-digit password.
PIN code
Personal Identification Number. A four-digit code that is used for
locking/unlocking, e.g. with the parental control feature.
Polarization
Polarization allows several programmes to be fitted into the same
frequency band. The signals from a satellite are transmitted either
with linear (vertical or horizontal) polarization or circular (right or left)
polarization.
RS 232
Standard Serial data communication port. Used for updating
software and channel settings and saving it to a PC.
Satellite dish
A dish-shaped antenna to receive signals from a satellite. The dish
focuses the signals into the LNB.
Additional Information AI.7
SCART
A 21pin connector used for connection of Satellite receiver, TV and
VCR.
Scrambled satellite TV programme
Some satellite TV programmes are transmitted in scrambled form. A
smart card, and possibly a CA module, will be needed to view such
programmes.
Symbol Rate
Measured in MS/s (mega symbols per second), a combination of the
sets of tones that make up the data stream of the satellite
transmission.

5.5 MP3 Juke Box
GbSat PVR receivers now come
pre-installed with an MP3 Juke
Box facility. Several MP3 and / or
WAV tracks can be selected and
saved as a Juke Box file. After
saving the file, it can then be
played as a sequence of tracks,
which will loop through until you
press EXIT.
Creating a Juke Box list
Press the
button to display the HDD contents window.
Press the
button to display the Juke Box window.
Now select the MP3 or WAV files you want to appear in this Juke
Box List.
Press EXIT to save the list.
Editing a Juke Box list
Press the
button to display
the HDD contents window.
Press the
button to display
the Juke Box window.
Options available include Play,
Erase, Edit and Rename.
Rename the list using the
character set provided.
Press EXIT to save the list.
NB. Moving MP3s or WAV files
after the Juke Box file has been
created, may cause the receiver
to stop responding.
If files have been moved to different directories, simply edit or delete
the appropriate Juke Box files.
AI.10 Additional Information
5.6 Internal Positioner Setup
The GbSat 2CIP0 receiver has both DiSEqC and 36v Internal
Positioners. Although some of the automation in USALS is not
available when using the 36v positioner, the pre-installed satellites
and channels will be of great benefit when installing this receiver.
Setup
It is assumed that the dish has
been set up to follow the satellite
arc correctly and is now attached
to a jack arm (or H-H mount),
which in turn is correctly wired to
the motor output at the rear of the
receiver.
Press the menu button to display
the GbSat 2CIP0 receiver menu.
Select Installation and enter a 4
digit password (default password
is 4 zeros).
Select Dish Setup by pressing OK
when Dish Setup is highlighted.
Select a satellite from the preinstalled list.
Now select DiSEqC Mode. Press
the right hand arrow key to select
None.
Additional Information AI.11
Select Positioner Setup. Press the
right hand arrow key and then
select Initialize Dish. This will
move the motor to its furthest left
and right extremeties.
(NOTE: You may want to initialize
the motor after detaching a dish if
you think the dish may foul a wall
or brackets).
The position indicator bar now
gives a start and end value
(relative to the number of pulses
from the actuator reed switch) and
a graphical representation of
exactly where the motor is in real
time.
To find a satellite position, first
select the target satellite in the
Dish option at the top of the page,
then select Move East-West in the
Positioner Setup option and press
the left or right hand arrow buttons
until you see the Signal Level and
Quality bars peak.
When the satellite has been
‘peaked’ , store the position using
the Store Position option by pressing the OK button.
Now select another satellite and repeat the procedure. Remember
that there are over 25 satellites pre-installed on this system (up to a
maximum of 32) requiring you to merely find and store each position
in order to complete the installation.
AI.12 Additional Information
Finally, the East-West limits for the motor may be set, (although the
motor will not go beyond the limits found using the Initialise Dish
procedure).
Select the Set West Limit option
and then press the
left hand
arrow button. A blue bar will
appear on the lower position bar
indicating the West Limit. Repeat
the procedure selecting the Set
East Limit option, setting the East
limit using the right hand arrow
key.
NOTE: If you have stored
satellites which fall within the Limit
Exclusion Zones, they will not be
available.
When all satellite positions have
been stored, exit the menus.
When a station is selected which
requires the dish to move, a
position information will appear
as illustrated here.
