Right now we have just arrived at the main satellite setup page, where you can set up just about any satellite configuration you can think of (also works with marine and mobile gyrosync-dishes very well - tried and tested). When I say anything is possible, I really mean it. I use on one system here a 12 way multiswitch, with 12 different satellites and LNB combinations on it. On another system here I have a 3.2m moving C and Ku band dish tuned to 32 different satellites. On yet another system I use a simple Motek Ku band moving dish over 12 Ku Band and 1 S band satellites. So as you can see it is not that your DM system will not do something, it is just a matter of time and effort to get it working the way it should.

The basic setup of your system will vary depending on;

  1. How many dishes you have
  2. What satellite band you are using (different setting for different parts of the world)
  3. How the dishes and LNB's are set up with or without diseqc switches
  4. If your dish is a move dish it will differ from a fixed dish setup
  5. If you are using a multiswitch or not using one
  6. If you are using a 22hz switch to select various diseqc's

This page will allow you to
[1] Set up your dish (fixed or move)
[2] LNB type
[3] diseqc type
[4] add new satellites to the list
[5] delete satellites from the list
[6] set up a multiswitch device

TIP: To add a new satellite to this list you will need to edit your satellites.xml file. To do this click on this link to see how you can do it with your remote control.

Here are hints and tips to try and make your life easier.

DM7020 Jade users - If you have a move dish (diseqc 1.2 enabled) you have to do this manually for the first time setup in Jade or if you are in Europe you can use the The Henksat Settings files
