Connect the coaxial cable from the LNB to the LNB connector on the DiSEqC 1.2 motor.
1. Connect DiSEqC 1.0
All our receivers are designed to be DiSEqC 1.0 compatible. This allows multiple antennas to be connected to the STB simultaneously. If you have two or more fixed antennas or LNBs, you can use a DiSEqC 1.0 switch. 1. Connect the coaxial cable from the first LNB to the LNB 1 or LNB A input connector of the DiSEqC switch. 2. Connect the coaxial cable from the second LNB to the LNB 2 or LNB B input connector of the DiSEqC switch. 3. Do the same for other LNBs. 4. Connect one end of a Coaxial cable to the RF output connector of the DiSEqC switch and the other end to the LNB IN socket on the STB.
2. Connect DiSEqC 1.2
Please refer to page E33.
3. Connect a Satellite antenna
To the digital receiver, you can connect either a single satellite antenna directly or through converter box several antennas or LNB of multi-feed equipment. You can connect a further Sat-receiver (for example analogue), with the receiver of common antenna equipment that has satellite signals. Connect an antenna cable through converter boxes 1. When you assemble several antenna or a multi-feed equipment that has several LNB (or LNB with several exits), connect each cable from the antenna to a converter box. 2. Connect the output of converter box to LNB IN, as in example displayed. 3. When you use a converter box of 0/12V-steerage, connect it to the output 0/12V additionally. For converter boxes of 22KHz- or DiSEqC-steerage, you can skip this point because the steerage signal occurs through the antenna cable.
4. Loop Through
If you have another analogue or digital STB and you wish to use the same LNB then you can connect it via the loop through. Connect one end of a Coaxial cable to the LNB OUT on the STB and connect the other end to the LNB IN on your second STB.
5. Connect a S/PDIF Fiber-Optic cable
If you are watching a programme with a Dolby Digital soundtrack (see page E12) you can enjoy the higher quality sound of the Dolby Digital audio by connecting the STB to an external Dolby Digital television or amplifier. Do this by connecting the optical S/PDIF output of the STB to the optical S/PDIF input of the external Dolby Digital product (television, amplifier,..).
6. Software Upgrade
HUMAX digital set-top box is a highly sophisticated product - incorporating one of the best software applications. Whenever a problem is found with this software or, in fact, extra functions or enhanced applications are added, the software in the equipment has to be upgraded. In order to maintain proper performance of the product, it is essential to have the most up to date software. The latest news and release of software versions may be found at HUMAX website - http://www.humaxdigital.com. It is recommended that users register to HCSA (HUMAX Customer Service Area) and periodically check for the availability of software upgrade. There are three methods to upgrade the software : (a) set-top box to set-top box download (copies the software of the main unit into slave unit); (b) pc to set-top box download (downloads the software directly from pc to the model requiring upgrade); (c) OTA over-the-air (downloads the software where the manufacturer reserves the right to decide when and where to release through satellite system). Over The Air (OTA) is simply another alternative for downloading software versions. However, the manufacturer reserves the right to decide when and where this software upgrade can take place by "beaming" latest software versions over the air via satellite systems. Note that OTA is only limited to certain geographical regions mainly due to different satellites having different footprints (area where the signal can be received). SUSS(TM) is an official trademark and logo for HUMAX loader software to perform OTA. The software upgrade via satellite system will only occur under the following circumstances : 1) the equipment should have appropriate loader software; 2) the manufacturer decides to release software downloading via a designated satellite system; 3) the equipment must be "tuned" properly to the same satellite that the manufacturer uses.

Use the buttons to stop the motor at the correct position. b) Highlight the Store East Limit option and press the button to store the current position as your East Limit.
To set the West Limit: a) Select Movement and use the buttons to move your motor East or West until the motor is at the position you wish to use as your West Limit. Use the buttons to stop the motor at the correct position. b) Highlight the Store West Limit option and press the button to store the current position as your West Limit. 5. Manual Satellite Search The purpose of this is to set the motor position for each satellite manually. This is useful if the satellite you require is not available from the pre-programmed list (see 3 above). To do this, you must access the Satellite Settings menu. Do as follows ; 1. Select Service Searching from the main menu and press the button, to display the Service Searching menu. 2. Select the Manual Search option and press the button, to display the Manual Search menu. Select the relevant Antenna Alternative that you are using for this satellite. 3. Enter the Frequency, Polarisation, Symbol Rate and FEC of a transponder on the satellite you wish to find. This transponder information should be unique to this satellite. 4. Select the Antenna Alternative option and press the button, to display the Satellite Settings menu. 5. Highlight the option DiSEqC Command Mode and using the buttons change this to Installer. 6. Highlight the option Satellite name and use the buttons to select the satellite you want to find, use others if the name of the satellite you want does not appear. 7. When you have selected the satellite you wish to find, go down to the Movement option and again using the buttons to start the motor moving. 8. You should move the motor as far west as possible and the move it east so that you cover the complete movement range of the motor. 9. During the move from west to east the Signal Quality bar should register a signal once. This is the position of the satellite. If there are two or more different positions which registers a signal, then you must choose another frequency that is unique to the satellite you want. 10. Use the Signal and Strength Quality bar at the bottom of the screen to judge the best position of the dish. 11. Use the buttons to stop the motor when required. 12. When you have the best position of the dish go to the Motor Control option and using the buttons select store and press the button. The position of the satellite should now be stored. 13. If you do not store this position, it will be lost when you exit the menu. 14. Repeat the process for each satellite if required, remembering to use a different antenna alternative for each satellite.
Now please select the file you want to load from the list you see
and click on "Open" or double click on the file you want to load. Note: If you want to write settings that you have found in the Internet into your receiver, you have to be careful: A settings file does not only contain the channel information, it also includes the general receiver settings (menu language, parental pin,.), the LNB and the satellite configuration. These configuration settings will usually not fit to your receiver. Therefore you should better overwrite these configuration settings with your own configuration settings (see chapter 3.j or 5.e.) When you have loaded a settings file or read the settings from your receiver, you get the following window (depending on the window size and some personal settings the picture may differ).
You see the TV channels (light blue background) and the radio channels (light green background) as well as a transponder list, a satellite list, a provider list, the favourite lists (FAV) and a genre list. If you select an item in the satellite list, you will see all channels and all transponders that are assigned to this satellite. If you select a transponder, provider, a favourite list or a genre, you will only see the channels that are assigned to this transponder, provider, this favourite list or this genre. When you select a channel, the satellite, transponder, provider and FAV list (if the channel is in a FAV list) of this channel are marked grey. In the genre list appears the genre of this channel. Channels that are in a favourite list are marked in the channel list with a darker background colour. Transponders and providers marked in red are empty; they contain no channels. If the channel number is marked with a red background colour, the channel is assigned to a vertical or right hand circular polarised transponder. If the channel number has a white background colour, the channel is assigned to a horizontal or left hand circular polarised transponder. If you have a cable receiver there are of course no polarisations. If a satellite has a green background colour, it is activated, which means there are already channels on this satellite. (You can change all these marking colours in the configuration menu, see chapter 5.b.)
original order, please click with the right mouse button into the channel list and select from the menu item "View sorted by" the option "Original".
To change the viewing mode of the channel lists you can also click on the letters "O" (original), "N" (Name), "F" (frequency) or "P" (polarity) in the border of the channel lists. First we have to find out the position of the channel ZDF at the moment. To find all channels you first have to click on the satellite "all" to see really all channels, independent of the satellite the channels belong to. Then you can search for ZDF by entering the first letters of the channel name. Please click anywhere in the channel list and hit the "Z" key on your keyboard, now all channels whose names begin with "Z" are selected. Now hit the "D" key on your keyboard. Now all channels beginning with "ZD" are selected. You can do this of course with the third, fourth letter etc. If you wait for more than three seconds between two letters a new search is started, so that the last letter entered is taken as the first letter of the name that is searched. You can also use the "find channels" function to find channels by name. Open the channel menu and select the function "find channels" from this menu. You will get this window:
You can choose whether you want to search on all satellites or only on the actually selected satellites. Click on the field beneath "all satellites" to search on all satellites (if you have selected "all" in the satellite list you won't see this option because all satellites are searched anyway). If you now enter "ZDF" in the field "Name" you will see in the list above all channels whose names begin with "zdf", e.g. the channel ZDFtheaterkanal. If you click on the white square to the left of the text "substring" you will see all channels that include the entered letters as a part of the channel name (beginning, middle or end, upper/lowercase is ignored). If you enter for example the word "sport" the channel "Eurosport" is found too. Now you can move channels from this list to another position in the channel list or assign them to another satellite, transponder, provider or a favourite list. The channels will not be removed from the find list, but when you click on such a channel you will see that the new satellite, transponder, provider or the new favourite list is now marked in grey. Within this find function you can also delete channels. Simply select the channel in the list of the find function and hit the Delete key on your keyboard. Now you have found for example ZDF. There are several ways to move the channel. The first way is to move the channel by drag & drop: click with the left mouse button on the channel you want to move, keep the mouse button pressed and drag the channel to the position you like to have it. The channel will be placed in front of the position the mouse is on. To drag a channel on the last position in the list, you have to drag it behind the last channel. You can also move the channels with the arrow keys of your keyboard. Please select the channel(s) you want to move, then press the Ctrl-key on your keyboard and keep this key pressed. Now you can move the selected channel(s) with the arrow keys on your keyboard. If you press the key "Home" or
All channels that are visible in the channel list at this moment are now selected and you can assign them at once to the genre of your choice. If you like to select all channels except of one you can select the one channel you don't like to be selected and use the function "invert selection" from the channel list menu. Now all channels except the one are selected. If you want to see all channels of one genre please click in the main window in the combo box "genre" and select the genre you like to see.
Note: It is not possible to change the names of the genres or FAV lists; they are hard coded in the receiver.
3.e Channel parameters
To rename a channel (e.g. "Das Erste" to "ARD") please select the channel and choose from the channel menu the function "change data" (or double-click on the channel), then you get the channel data menu:
In the field "Name" you can now enter the name of the channel. If you find "<" and ">" in the channel name, these signs mark the short channel name. The DVB norm distinguishes between a short and a long name. The broadcasting stations have the possibility to transmit a long and a short version of the channel name. Some receivers use the short version for the receiver display, where only a small number of letters can be shown and the long version for the channel list. Unfortunately the Humax V3 receivers do not support this function. But you can use the short channel names for example to have smaller columns in your channel lists. These two signs don't appear in the channel list. In the long version of the channel name you see the entire name (except the "<" and ">" signs), in the short version you see only the letters between "<" and ">". For example the name <H>ome <O>rder <T>elevision would be "Home Order Television" as long name and "HOT" as short name. In the configuration of SetEdit you can change between these two viewing modes of the channels. In the case of the Humax V3 receiver it may happen, that nevertheless there is a "<" character in a channel name. The receiver cuts the channel names behind the 20th character. So if the "<" is before and the ">" behind the 20th character, the brackets are not complete and so you will see the opening bracket in the channel name. Note: Some channel names will be changed from the receiver to the original name as soon as you watch this channel. To keep the name you entered you can click on "name protected", the name will stay in the way you entered it. In the field "font" you can select the font that is used for the channel (e.g. Greek fonts for Greek channels). Within this menu you can also assign the channel to another genre or provider. Furthermore you can change the transponder data (frequency, polarity, symbol rate, FEC, Net ID and TS ID) the PIDs and the Channel ID of the channel (see chapter 3.h). If you have a cable receiver there is no FEC and no polarity, but you have to enter the modulation. With "PIDs" you can choose whether the PIDs are shown decimal or hexadecimal. You can also mark channels as "scrambled", "locked" or "skipped" within this menu or remove these markings. If you lock a channel this means you have to enter the parental pin to watch this channel. These channels will be marked in the channel list with a key symbol. A skipped channel is marked with an X and is skipped when you zap with the arrow keys, you can enter it directly in the receiver channel menu or by entering the channel number. Scrambled channels are marked with the following symbol:
You can print your settings. To do this click on the "File" button and select from the file menu the function "Print". You get the following dialogue:
First you have to select if your printout should be sorted by channel numbers or by transponders (frequencies). If you print your channels in number sequence, you can also select whether you want to print all channels, only the selected ones or only the unskipped channels. There are some options. You can choose if you also want to print the frequency, the satellite, the PIDs, if the channel is scrambled or if the channel is in a FAV list, etc. Finally you can enter the Font height for your printout. Then please hit the button "Print". A printing dialogue will appear, whose layout depends on the printer you have installed. With the "export" function you can export your settings to a plain ASCII file that can be opened with Word or Excel or other applications. The tab character (0x09) separates the different parameters. Besides this the export works the same as printing. Select "Export" in the file menu, then you select the optional parameters as described above and click on the button "Export". You get a window where you can enter the filename and select the directory of the exported file.
3.h Using the transponder functions and entering new channels by hand
There is a short summary of the transponder functions in chapter 5.f. In the case of the Humax OAK V3 receivers, you have to distinguish between the model BTCI 5900, which is certified for German Premiere, and other models. The 5900 can handle the Multifeed options of the German provider Premiere and with the help of the Premiere channel search it will find all the Premiere channels including the soccer and Formula 1 channels and the Premiere Direkt channels. These multifeed options will only work properly, if the Net ID and TS ID of the transponder of these channels are entered correctly. In the Internet there are settings, in which these parameters are missing. With the other receiver models it may happen, that when you read the settings from your receiver you find channels with strange names (like "unknown") and some channels are missing in your list (e.g. German Premiere, soccer, Formula 1 or pay-per-view channels). Channels that share place (like the German ARTE/Kinderkanal) can only be found in the receiver if they are active at the time you make the channel search. Some of the Premiere Direkt, soccer and Formula 1 channels are found, but not with the right name. In the following you find a description how to enter new transponders (and channels) and how to change wrong transponder data. In the Internet there are sites (e.g. www.lyngsat.com) where you can find all channel settings (including the missing pay-per-view or soccer channels). In the following you find an explanation how to enter channels and transponders from such lists by hand. Note: If you use a cable receiver please ask your local cable provider about changes. Suppose you discover on www.lyngsat.com that on satellite X a new transponder is active, but your receiver can't find this transponder at the moment, for example because it does not send at the moment (feed) or your antenna is not aligned to this satellite.
If you don't find this PID, you can enter 1FFF (hexadecimal) or 8191 (decimal) instead, i.e. "not used". For "normal" channels you don't need this PID. When you have entered all the parameters please click on OK and the new channel will appear at the end of your channel list. If you only want to change some of the parameters of a transponder (e.g. because the TS ID and/or the Net ID are wrong), you simply have to select the transponder, click with the right mouse button into the transponder list and select from the menu that appears the function "Change data". You get a dialogue where you can change the parameters of the selected transponder. (You can also make a double click on the transponder to get this dialogue.) As soon as a satellite has one channel it is shown as being active (appears in green). Satellites that have no channel have a white background. (You can change these colours in the configuration.) Sometimes you would like to create new channels that differ in only a few details from existing channels. In this case it is useful to create a duplicate (with the copy and paste functions of the channel list menu) and then change in this duplicate only the parameters that differ. Note: In some lists the PIDs are given in decimal notation, in others in hexadecimal notation (see chapter 8). You have to be aware of that when you enter the PIDs. In the configuration menu and in the channel data window you can specify if you want to see/enter the PIDs in decimal or hexadecimal form.
When you enable the option "always on top" in the configuration menu, SetEditHumaxV3 will always be in the foreground on your desktop. This can be useful when you work with such Internet lists, as the SetEdit window will not go into the background when you click in the browser. You also change the notation of the PIDs if you click on the "H" for hexadecimal or "D" for decimal in the border of the "Info" section. To compare your settings file with lists in the Internet that are often sorted by frequencies you have the possibility to sort the transponders of your settings file by frequency. To do this click with the right mouse button in the transponder list and select "view sorted by" -> "frequency" from the menu you get. Alternatively you can also view the transponder list sorted by polarity. You can also set the viewing mode by clicking on the letters "O" (original), "F" (sort by frequency) and "P" (sort by polarity) in the frame of the transponder list.
3.i Import of channels
You have the possibility to get ready-made settings lists from the Internet. These lists can be used partially or completely. You can find such lists for example at the following URLs: The most current settings lists for the DVB2000 (Nokia 9500/960x) are on www.dxandy.de. It is possible to import channels from these settings into your settings list (especially exotic channels are up-to-date in this list). On www.lyngsat.com/nokia/index.shtml or on the SatcoDX site (you can find a link on my homepage) you will also find listings of all satellites. There are three possibilities to use such settings files. In this chapter you find a description how to add some channels from an other settings file into your settings file. The import function You can import channels from all settings formats that are supported by SetEdit into your SetEditHumaxV3 settings. In the standard version you can import channels from SetEditHumaxV3 settings, DVB2000 settings, Lyngsat DAT charts and SatcoDX SDX files. You can add other formats by copying the corresponding modules (SetEditXXX.dll) into the SetEdit directory (see chapter 2.) Please click on "File" -> "New" and select the format of the settings file, from which you want to import channels.
A second window with the chosen settings file will be opened. In the same way you can open a third or even more settings files. Each of these lists is equivalent. Every format (Humax V3, DVB2000, SatcoDX, Lyngsat or other added formats) has its own symbol. SatcoDX and Lyngsat files are only Internet lists, so the functions "Read from receiver" and "Write into receiver" do not exist for these formats. Now you can easily transfer one or more channels by drag & drop from one window into another or "Copy" and "Paste" them with the corresponding functions from the channel lists menu. Note: As the Humax V3 receivers only support digital channels you can't import analogue channels. It may happen, that there are analogue channels for example in a SatcoDX file. In the configuration of the SatcoDX settings file you can choose, if you only want to see analogue or digital channels or both. In the different settings formats there are different channel parameters. If a parameter only exists in the destination list but not in the source list (e.g. there are no PMT PIDs in the SatcoDX files), a standard value will be taken for this parameter. You can also drag and drop groups of channels (for example entire transponder with all its channels) from one window into another. Source: Channel list: The selected channels will be transferred.
All other lists (satellites, providers, labels, transponders, etc): All channels of the selected list will be transferred. Find window (e.g. "Find channels", "Find duplicates"): the selected channel will be transferred. Destination: Channel list: The imported channels will be pasted at the location the cursor is on at the moment you paste the channels. Sometimes it is only possible to paste a channel, if a definitely assignment (e.g. to a satellite) is possible in the destination list. In a SetEditHumaxV3 settings list a satellite has to be selected, if you want to paste a channel. If the entry "All" is selected in the satellite list, you can't import channels from another window. Transponder: A transponder is always definitely assigned to a satellite. So if you assign a channel from another window to a transponder, these channels will be assigned to the satellite of this transponder and will get the transponder data of this transponder. If you drag and drop a transponder from one window into the transponder list of another window, this transponder with all its channels will be added as a new transponder. Note: If you import a transponder from another window, this transponder will be added to the satellite that is selected. If "All" is selected in the satellite list, the new transponder will be added to the satellite of the transponder the cursor is on. If you drag and drop a satellite with all its channels to the transponder list of another window, all these channels will be added to the transponder the cursor is on. This will also happen to channels that come from another FAV list, provider, label, etc. Note: It may happen that you can't receive a channel, if you assign it to the wrong transponder. Satellite: The imported channels will be added to the satellite the cursor is on. Transponders that don't exist yet in the transponder list of the destination settings file, will be created. Favourite list: A direct import into the favourite lists is not possible. General note: If there is a possible assignment, you can copy channels from each list of one window to each list of another window. For example you can transfer channels from the "Find channels" function of a SatcoDX list to a satellite of a Humax V3 list. In the popup menu of the channel list there are two functions that may help you to compare the channel lists of different settings files. These functions are only available in the channel list menu, if two or more SetEdit windows are opened. With the function "Mark new channels in" you can mark in another window the channels that do not exist in your actual list. (The channel number of these channels will be marked in green.)
If more than two lists are opened, you have to select in which list you want to mark the new channels. If only two windows are opened, only one possibility is given. With the function "Mark not existing channels in" you can mark in your actual list those channels (the channel number will be marked in red) that do not exist in another window. If more than two lists are opened, you have to select the channel list that you want to compare your actual list with. If only two windows are opened, only one possibility is given. With "Remove not existing channel markings" or "Remove new channel markings" you can remove the corresponding markings. These functions will only appear in a channel list menu, if there are such markings in the channel list.
If you have marked the "new channels" or the "not existing channels" in a channel list, you can select them all. Please click in the channel lists menu on select and choose the corresponding entry: "all not existing" or "all new". This entry will only be shown in the menu, if there are such markings in the channel list. Note: For the import of channels it is useful, to choose in the configuration the value 5 or even 10 MHz for the frequency tolerance. It may happen that the frequency of the same channel differs just a little bit in different lists. If the frequency tolerance is 0, these channels will be marked as "new" or "not existing" too. But a difference of only some MHz is insignificant to the receiver, so you don't need to import these channels.
3.j Other settings and how to convert a settings file
In the following you find a description how to use a settings file found for example in the Internet completely and how to convert a settings file into the format you need. Other SetEditHumaxV3 settings files You can load SetEditHumaxV3 settings directly into the SetEditHumaxV3 main list (with File -> Open) and then write them into the receiver. If you like to take settings you find in the Internet completely you may get problems because in addition to the pure channel data also the receiver menu settings (menu language, parental pin,.), satellite and LNB configuration are included in the settings file you got from the Internet. It may be possible that you don't want this configuration or that this configuration does not fit to your receiver (LNB configuration). You have the possibility to save your own configuration separately and load it after opening the Internet file into this file. Please select in the satellite menu "save satellite configuration" to save your configuration, your satellite and LNB configuration is saved on your disc. If you load a settings file from the Internet, you can use the function "Load satellite configuration" from the satellite menu to overwrite these settings with your previously saved settings. The satellite configuration of a settings file is saved separately for each satellite. To check it please double-click on the satellite or select "change data" from the satellite menu. The other functions of this menu are explained in chapter 5.e. If you often take settings from the Internet but always want to keep your satellite settings, you can enable the option "When loading use personal sat + menu settings" in the configuration menu. Then this part of the settings is always taken from your previously saved configuration. In the file menu you can find the function "General settings". Here you can check and change the general settings of your receiver (like menu language, parental PIN etc.)
Convert a settings file You can convert all settings formats that are supported by SetEdit and for that you have got the corresponding module (in form of a DLL file) into the SetEditHumaxV3 format. In chapter 2 is described how you can add other SetEdit modules. Please open with "File" -> "New" an additional editor window with the format of the file you wish to convert. Then please load with "File" -> "Open" the settings file you want to convert into another format. Note: For the convert function it is necessary that the geographic position of the satellites is known. The assignment of the source and destination satellites is made by these geographical positions. Because the Humax V3 receivers don't store these positions, you have to enter them manually. For example to set the geographic position for Astra 1 rename this satellite to Astra 1 19.2E. You can use
"." or "," for the decimal separator, to mark satellites in the west you can use "w" or "W" all other letters mark an east satellite. You have to change of course only the names of the satellites you need. This is necessary for both converting directions. You can only convert a settings file into the SetEditHumaxV3 format, if you have already saved your satellite configuration with the function "Save satellite configuration" in the popup menu of the satellite list (see above). If you want to convert a SetEditHumaxV3 settings file into another format, it depends on this format, if you first have to save the satellite configuration for this format or if this is not necessary (e.g. DVB2000, SatcoDX or Lyngsat). Important: If you convert a settings file only the pure channel and transponder data is taken from the source settings file. The satellite configuration and the general settings of your receiver are taken from the satellite configuration that has to be saved before (see above). If some channel parameters don't exist in the source settings file, a default value is taken for this parameter. Now you can convert the loaded settings file. To do this, please click on "File" -> "Convert to" and select the format you want to convert this settings file to.
You have two ways of printing your settings. You can either sort the list by the channel numbers (to have a printed channel list) or by the transponders of the channels (to compare your settings with lists in magazines). If you print your channels in number sequence, you can also select whether you want to print all channels, only the selected ones or only the unskipped channels. The channel number and name are always printed; additionally you can print the transponder data (frequency, symbol rate, polarity and FEC), the satellite, the provider, the PIDs, the Channel ID and the flags for "scrambled" or "FAV". In the field "Font size" you can enter the size of the font that is used for printing. If more than one column will fit on the page you will get a multi column printout. With Export you can export your settings as an ASCII file (e.g. to open it with Word). You have the same options as with the print function. With General settings you can enter the parameters of your receiver menu (menu language, parental PIN,.).
With Close you close the actual active SetEdit window. If only one window is opened you close the complete program. With Exit you exit from SetEdit. All open editor windows are closed. In the configuration you can enter with Restore last session when starting that all opened editor windows are reopened when you start the program the next time. When you like to use this function you have to finish from SetEdit with the "File" -> "Exit" function. If you close all windows one by one only the last opened window will be restored.
Click on the "Config." button to change the general settings of SetEdit. There are three tab sheets in the configuration menu. General settings: If you click on "General settings" you get the following menu:
In the field Comport you can select which comport of your PC is used to connect to your receiver. The value Frequ. Tol. (Frequency tolerance) is used when importing and indicates the tolerance a transponder frequency may have relative to the imported one to be considered to be the same. If you have for example a transponder with the frequency 11721 MHz in you settings and you import a channel with the frequency 11720 MHz and the frequency tolerance is set to 5 MHz no new transponder is created. This tolerance is also used for the transponder list. With Column width you can select if 100% (auto) or 90-30% of all channels have to fit completely to a column. All other channel names are truncated. With "manual" you can enter the column width by hand. Please select the function "Setup column width" from the menu of the channel lists and then you can click on the position where you want to have the right border of the first column. Note: There is a minimum width for the columns. If the window is too small to show more than one column the column width has no effect. With Baud rate you change the speed for serial communication (see chapter 3.a). Please enter the receiver you have in the combo box Receiver. Usually the correct values for the Menu type, the Flash type and the System ID are entered automatically. You can check the system ID in your receiver with the remote control, please enter menu -> installation -> status -> receiverstatus and compare the number you find behind "loader version" with the system ID that is entered in SetEdit. If this number differs, please enter the number you see on the receiver. If this number is not the correct number, you can't write settings into your receiver. For the number of satellites there are three possibilities. The number of satellites depends on the type of your receiver and its firmware version. There are models with 16 or with 32 satellites. If you choose "Auto", the number of satellites is taken from the settings, when you load a settings file. With both other possibilities you determine the number of satellites. If you only work with settings that you read from your own receiver, you can choose "Auto". If you often use settings from the Internet, you should enter the right value for your receiver on your own. In the field Cut names you can enter, if channel names that are too long (see column width), are cut at the end or in the middle. In the field PIDs you select how the PIDs are shown/entered (decimal or hexadecimal). You can also switch between these two viewing modes, if you click on the "H" for hexadecimal or the "D" for decimal in the frame of the "Information" section.
With Language you can select the menu language you would like. This language is taken for all opened SetEdit windows. With Always on top SetEditHumaxV3 always stays on top of your desktop. With Names: short you will get the short names of the channels in the channel list (see chapter 3.e). With Start with last used file SetEditHumaxV3 opens automatically the last used file every time you start the program. With When loading use personal sat + menu settings you can, after you have once saved your satellite configuration (the general settings are also saved, see chapter 3.j), use this configuration automatically when loading settings. For example you can use your satellite and you general settings always when you load settings from other sources. If Restore last session when starting is activated, all editor windows that were opened when you closed the last session are reopened (see chapter 5.a.) If you activate Show channel count in lists the number of channels of each satellite, transponder, provider and each favourite list is shown behind the name of these lists. Colours: If you click on the tab sheet "Colours", you will get the following menu:
Here you can change the colours that are used to mark the following states: Activated (programmed) satellites
Horizontal or left hand circular polarised transponders, vertical or right hand circular polarised transponders (if you have a cable receiver, there is of course no polarisation)
TV channels and radio channels
TV or radio channels that are in a favourite list
Transponder, satellite, provider and FAV list(s) of an actually selected channel (Active Tr/Sat/Pr/FAV)
Empty transponders and providers
New or not existing channels (for the import function, see chapter 3.i)
The icons for "locked", "skipped" and "scrambled"
With a double click on the frame of a colour field, you get the default colour again.
Convert: On the tab sheet "Convert" you can choose which options should be used, if you convert another settings file into the SetEditHumaxV3 format. Sort channel list by satellites: The channels of the source list will be sorted by satellites, when you convert into the Humax V3 format. Keep gaps in channel list: In some settings there are "empty" channels that are inserted so that a new group of channel will start on a channel number that you can remember easier (like 50, 100, 222, 1000,.). Convert labels to providers: All labels of the source list will be converted to providers. Convert labels to FAV lists: The first four labels of the source list will be converted to FAV lists. Convert providers to FAV lists: The first four providers of the source list will be converted to FAV lists. Convert FAV lists to providers: All FAV lists of the source list will be converted to providers. If a
channel is in more than one FAV list it is placed into the first provider. This option may be useful for example if the source list has more than four FAV lists and you want to keep all of them. Take FAV list(s) from source list: The first four FAV lists are taken from the source list (the Humax V3 receivers only have four FAV lists). If you want to convert a SetEditHumaxV3 settings file into another format, you have to choose these options in the configuration menu of this other format. Depending on the receiver there can be up to 10 different options.
You can get your registration key for 19,99 from me. I need your full name and your e-mail address. I can't send you the registration key by post. In the demo version you can only change 20 channels. After this you can neither save your settings nor write them into your receiver. Note: Without your e-mail address and your full name I can't register you for SetEditHumaxV3.
To register for SetEditHumaxV3 there are 4 possibilities: 1. You send me the money in cash (by registered letter). My address is: Wolfgang Litzinger Wasseraecker Trippstadt/Germany 2. You can make a direct money transfer. Note: If you transfer from outside Germany please make sure that you pay the fees for international money transfer. My account is: Account number Bank name: Bank 24 Sort code: 24 Bank address: P.O. box 24 Karl-Legien Str. Bonn/Germany SWIFT: DEUT DEDB XXX IBAN: DEPlease use as the reason for payment your name, the editor version you wish to order and add a random number (e.g. your zip code, phone number etc.). Example for a reason for payment: Charles Brown SetEditHumaxV3 12:56 Please send me an e-mail when you have transferred the money. The body of the mail should contain your name, the editor version you wish to order (here SetEditHumaxV3) and the random number you wrote in the reason for the money transfer. Example for an e-mail text: Order for SetEditHumaxV3, Charles Brown, 12:56 Please check if you e-mail address is valid (e.g. by sending an e-mail to your own address). Unfortunately it happens sometimes that I want to send someone an e-mail with the registration key but the e-mail comes back undeliverable because the return address is not correct. Please make sure that your name is in the e-mail (there are often e-mails like "from: email@example.com, I have sent you money today please sent me the editor"). In this case I can't relate your mail with my bank account. Please don't try to write your e-mail address to the reason of the money transfer, special characters like "@" and "_" are not valid for this. Please don't sent me pictures of your transfer sheet or online banking program, you will get the key as soon as I have the money on my bank account, I check my account every day. If you get no e-mail from me after 7 working days, please contact me by e-mail. Either I could not assign your money transfer to someone or something is wrong with your e-mail address. 3. The easiest way to pay from outside Germany is to pay by credit card (Visa/MasterCard or American Express). Please use the order form on the next page, print it and fill out all fields and then send it to me by fax +49 (0) 6306 993453. 4. You can also use the online shop on my homepage to pay by Visa/MasterCard. Back to Contents.

8 Glossary and abbreviations
Baud rate: The speed at which data is transferred via the serial port to the receiver. The number is in bits per seconds. Decimal/Hexadecimal: Hexadecimal is a system for representing numbers in base 16, rather than the base 10 we normally use. The hexadecimal system requires 15 digits and a zero; conventionally the letters A-F are used to represent the digits for that the decimal system cannot provide equivalents. Hexadecimal notation is not usually important for the PC user (with the possible exception of specifying base addresses) but is still quite important for the programmer. Its importance arises because there is a very close correspondence between hexadecimal and the very important binary numbering system that computers use internally. However, hexadecimal notation is much more compact than binary. The reason why you can select both systems in SetEdit is that many satellite operators use "even" hexadecimal PID numbers. For example the audio PIDs on Astra transponder 11720 are in decimal notation 256, 512, 768, 1024, 1280 etc., whereas in hexadecimal notation they are 100, 200, 300, 400 etc. DLL: Dynamic Link Library. A Windows library file that can be shared by multiple applications. In SetEditHumaxV3 a DLL from Humax V3 is used for the serial communication between the receiver and the PC. FEC: Forward Error Correction. A system, in which redundancy is added to the message so that most errors can be corrected dynamically at the receiver. Usual values are 1/1, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8. 3/4 means that 3 out of 4 bits are reference data and the remaining one is for error correction. LNB: Low Noise Block (converter). Amplifies received signals and converts them from microwave to lower frequency signals that are then sent along a cable to the satellite receiver. An LNB can be either single or double. A double LNB is required when more than one receiver is used allowing the viewing of different satellite channels on other television sets. PID: Program Identifier. A 13-bit code in the transport packet header. PID 0 indicates that the packet contains a PAT PID. PID 1 indicates a packet that contains CAT. The PID 8191 (all 1 bits) indicates null (stuffing) packets. All packets belonging to the same elementary data stream have the same PID. The most important PIDs are the Video PID (for the video information), the Audio PID for the sound and the PCR PID (Program clock reference) to get Video and audio synchronous. If you enter an existing Service ID for a channel, the receiver can get all necessary information for this channel. If you only enter the video and the audio PID, it may happen that you see the picture and hear the sound, but EPG does not work because this information is transmitted on a different PID. Usually the receiver finds the PIDs automatically, but occasionally (exotic channels) you have to know them and enter them by hand. Symbol rate: The amount of digital data that is transmitted per second via a transponder. This is specified in Msymb/sec (Mega symbols per second), whereby a "Symbol" consists of 4 bits. The symbol rate together with the FEC value can be used to calculate the bandwidth of a transponder. Polarity: A satellite transmission signal has either a vertical, horizontal, or circular orientation; a satellite can be all vertical or all horizontal; if a satellite is cross polarised, it can transmit both ways and therefore has twice the delivery capacity. Besides the horizontal and vertical polarisation we also find the circular polarisation. Circular polarisation is not as easy to understand as linear polarisation, you can imagine that the waves are rotating clockwise or anticlockwise. In this case we speak about LHC and RHC (left hand circular and right hand circular). As a rule in Europe linear polarisation (horizontal and vertical) is used. In Scandinavia and for C-band reception circular polarisation is used. Select: To select a channel please click with the mouse on the channel. To select more than one channel you can use the usual windows methods. When you press the shift key and click on a channel all channels between the currently selected and
