This scanning function will automatically scan the satellite you select and add any new found TV, Radio and data channels to your DM box. These newly found channels then form part of your channel lists and can be added to your bouquets at any time.

First of all make sure you have signal on the satellite you are about to scan. You can use the Satfind or Rotor setup to ensure you have signal (no point in scanning something you have no signal on right?) Once you know you have a signal, select the satellite to scan from the drop down list. Tip: only the channels you have added under the Satellite configuration menu will be available to scan.
