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.

Pawz says "I think the secret of getting a lock lies in this: On the first screen, choose Automatic Transponder Scan and scan any region. Then go to Manual Transponder Scan and enter your manual details. You need to know the Frequency and Bandwidth for each of your transmitters (you have multiple tv stations on one transmitter). Enter the Frequency and Bandwidth, choose any Constellation, but do not choose Auto. Then choose Auto for Guard, Transm. Mode, Coderate LP and HP. In my screenshot it shows the detected values. I can't say whether these same values will work for you. Finding the frequency information may not be easy in your region because DVB boxes normally tune themselves. In Australia I recommend the Austech forums for that info."

Tip: Blind PID's can be entered under the Manual Transponder Scan option.
Tip: For Moteks, or any type of move dish - ensure you have diseqc 1.2 enabled under the satellite you define in the Satellite configuration section above
Tip: European Users can always use the The Henksat Settings files - Automatic Satellite/Transponder setup and settings
