Wiki source for E1Satconfig

Show raw source

No [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DiSEqC disecq]] for **one** satellite, simple for up to 4 satellites and the complex configuration for a disecq motor or the complex configuration of a wave frontier dish with up to 16 satellites.

In our case we choose a simple configuration like a Dish with up to four satellites. Normally the Hotbird sat is disecq A and Astra is diseqc B. In our example usually the Astra 2 satellite is at 3 and a fourth satellite is depending of your own choice. At the pictures below is shown how to do this.

Once you set this up press the GREEN button to **Save** your changes, if you need to change anything else you can do it later under the Menu Button, Setup, Satellites & Transponders, Satellite Configuration

By selecting this option your dish electronics setting (LNB) will be configured to work with the satellites located at

- **82**west
- **91**west
- **110**west
- **119**west

====How to tune a C or S band satellite on a fixed dish / multiswitch / multi-diseqc====

**Please NOTE:** as the on-board satellites.xml file is only defined as each satellite and not further split by each satellite band it is impossible to tune both the C and Ku bands on any one satellite.

**Step 1**

**Step 2**

In step three you will notice this screen has been changed from the original on your DM box.

1) Select the drop down menu at the top of the screen and change it non-standard user defined configuration.
1) Select the satellite you require by highlighting the satellite name and selecting from the drop down menu
1) Select the LNB and press OK. Now define the settings for each LNB you have. Simply enter in the required details like the examples below.
1) Select any of the 22hz diseqc / multiswitch details you require by configuring the 22HZ and Voltage selections


====Standard LNB settings (although can vary from country to country)====

Standard **Universal LNB** setup (PLiĀ® default setting) for all countries **but** North America

**Ku Single LNB** (there is NO such thing as a standard Ku single LNB as this is different in many countries i.e. 10700 in Australia)
