**Tip:** only the satellites you have added under the Tuner configuration menu will be available to scan.

The Manual Scan option offers a number of powerful options depending on the type of E2 box you own.
Here you can
1) Scan a single transponder (S-C-T)
1) Scan a single Satellite (S-C-T) [[E2Tuner you have defined in the in the Tuner set up]]
1) Scan many or multiple satellites (S-C-T)[[E2Tuner you have defined in the in the Tuner set up]]

Now lets look at these options one by one
