The bottom door thing hopefully was a one time thing. Makes me wonder what else may have gone by unnoticed. Good value for the money. The 5650 is a pretty good GFX card. I was trying to hold off on writing this until I purchased photoshop.

My personal experience was great with this. I gave this a 4-5 because of the heating issues and outdated hardware inside of a 2010 system.

The Hp pavilion notebook is great. The battery life is the best part. It last so long without freezing up. My old laptop kept freezing after a while.

NEVER BUY HP. They will con you out of your hard earned money and give you some low-end POS hardware that they call a laptop.

3.b Arrange settings

Now you have the settings (from your own receiver or from the Internet) in SetEditSL65. The most important functions will be explained now in detail with some examples, while in the chapter functions all functions are briefly described. The most important function of SetEditSL65 is to get order in your channel list. This can be by deleting channels you don't need (e.g. channels that are scrambled and you have no subscription for), getting the channels into a useful order, assigning the channels to the favourite list and correcting wrong channel settings (e.g. wrong channel names). First let us suppose that we want to delete a channel. To do this we have to select the channel first. Please click with the mouse on the channel. Then the satellite, the transponder and the FAV list (if this channel is in the FAV list) of this channel are marked grey in the respective list. Sometimes it is useful to change this colour (similarly for other colours, for example the colours used for new channels (for the import) or duplicate channels), e.g. because the colours are too pale on a laptop. You will find a description how to do this in chapter 5.b. Now click with the right mouse button in the channel list and open the channel menu:
Please select the item "delete" in this menu and the selected channel will be deleted from your settings. If you delete a channel within the favourite list, this channel is only removed from the FAV list but not deleted from the main list. Note: There is no undo function yet, so be careful. To delete a channel, you can also select the channel and then hit the Del key on your keyboard. To delete multiple channels please click for example on channel 5, then press the shift key and keep it pressed and then click on channel 7. The channels 5 to 7 are now selected. Now you can delete these channels as described above. To select channels that are not consecutive (e.g. the channels 5, 20 and 39) please click on the first channel (here channel 5), then press the Ctrl key on your keyboard, keep this key pressed and then click on the other channels you like to delete. Now assume we want to move a channel, e.g. ZDF to position 2. Note: You can show your channel lists in original order or sorted by alphabet, frequency or polarity. Moving channels is easier when the channel list is shown in its original order. If the channel list is shown in alphabetical order and you move a channel, only the channel number will change but not the position of the channel in the channel list (the name is still the same). To show the channel list in 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 or the 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 or the 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 "End" while the Ctrl key is pressed you move the selected channel(s) to the beginning or the end of the list.

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 SetEditSL65 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 SL65 Silvercrest 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. Continue with Settings from other Receivers and how to convert a settings file.
3.i Settings from other receivers and how to convert a settings file
In the following you find a description how to transfer a settings file from a receiver of the same family into your receiver or how to convert a settings file from another receiver supported by SetEdit into the format you need, so you can write it into your receiver. Settings files from other receivers of the same familiy If you have got two receivers of the same family (e.g. two different receiver types of the same manufacturer) and you want to transfer a settings file from one receiver into the other you may get problems because in addition to the pure channel data also the receiver menu settings (menu language, parental pin,.), receiver type, satellite and LNB configuration and some receiver identifications are included in the settings file. Many receivers only accept settings files with their own receiver identifications. That is the reason why it is not so simple to exchange settings files between two receivers even if the satellite and LNB configuration is the same. So if you want to write a settings file from one receiver into another, you should first read once the settings from the receiver, into which you want to write the settings file. Then please save the satellite configuration for this file: click with the right mouse button into the satellite list and select the function "save satellite configuration". Now your satellite and LNB configuration is saved on your disc. Open with "File" -> "Open" the settings file you want to write into the receiver. Then click with the right mouse button into the satellite list and choose the function "load satellite configuration" to overwrite the satellite configuration of this file with the satellite configuration you just saved. Finally you can write the settings file into your receiver without any problems. Example: You want to write a settings file from receiver A into receiver B. 1. Read with "File" -> "Read from receiver" the settings from receiver B. 2. Click with the right mouse button into the satellite list and choose the function "Save satellite configuration". 3. Load the settings file from receiver A with "File" -> "Open" in SetEdit. 4. Click with the right mouse button into the satellite list and choose the function "Load satellite configuration". 5. Write this settings file into receiver B with "File" -> "Write into receiver". 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. Convert a settings file You can convert all settings formats that are supported by SetEdit and for that you have got the corresponding editor (in form of a DLL file) into the SetEditSL65 format. In chapter 2 is described how you can add other SetEdit editors.

With Satellites you can choose which satellites you can receive (Astra, Hotbird and/or Turksat). In the channel list you only see channels of the selected satellites. In our example you would select Astra and Hotbird. (How to add the Hispasat channels will be described later.) With Lists you can select a country specific order for your channel list. All lists contain the same channels but the order differs. In the German list ARD and ZDF are at the first positions, for Austria this would be the ORF channels, for Switzerland SF,. For our example you choose the list "Deutschland". For Germany and Austria you can choose with Special channel which regional channel will be at the third (Germany) or second (Austria) position in your channel list. In our example this is "Bayerisches Fernsehen". Furthermore there are 6 options you can choose: Hide regional "dritte" channels: In Germany it is possible than the same regional channel may have more than one regional "window" so you can find them several times in your channel list, e.g. WDR Aachen, WDR Bielefeld, WDR Kln,. With this option you hide all channels of each regional group except one. In the example WDR Aachen stays in the channel list, the others will be hidden. Hide HDTV channels: All HDTV channels are hidden. Hide Shopping-TV channels: All Shopping-TV channels are hidden. Hide Call-TV channels: All Call-TV channels are hidden. Insert dummy channel with list name: DXAndy files are originally sorted by FAV lists. If you convert this settings file and this option is activated a dummy channel will be inserted at the beginning of each channel group (FAV list) with the name of this favourite list. For this function you have to disable in the configuration of the destination format the option "Sort channel list by satellites". Add personal FAV list: With this function you can automatically add a FAV list you have created with another SetEdit editor and saved to your hard disc with the function "Export" of the favourite lists menu of this editor. With the button "." you can choose this FAV list. Now this FAV list will be added automatically each time you load a new DXAndy file. Note: In chapter 3.c you can read how to create such a "personal FAV list". In our example you activate the options "Hide HDTV channels" and "Hide Shopping-TV channels". Furthermore you choose the option "Add personal FAV list". With the button "." you select the favourite list with the Hispasat channels you have created with another Editor before. Pay TV: With "Pay TV" you get the following menu:

3.k Wish lists

With SetEdit you have the possibility to create a personal channel list, save this list as wish list and then (if you have got the corresponding SetEdit full version) adapt any settings file to this wish list and write it into your receiver. This means the order of the channels will be taken from the wish list, unwanted channels and transponders will be deleted and new channels can easily be added. You can make a new channel research with your receiver whenever you want, read these settings from your receiver and adapt them to your wish list. So you can be sure not to miss any new channels, but you don't each time need to rearrange the channels, delete the same channels you don't want to see or add channels (which e.g. haven't been found by the receiver because they were not active at the time you made the channel research). Create a wish list: Please load any settings file in SetEdit (for example a settings file you just read from your receiver). Now you start with moving the most important channels you know on the positions you want (for example ARD on position 1, ZDF on position 2,.). Then you can mark channels you don't want to watch as "unwanted". It's important to mark those channels as unwanted and not to delete them, because the wish list will be used to delete these channels automatically from every new settings file. If you delete a channel, this channel will appear again in your settings each time you make a new channel research with your receiver. The unwanted channels will stay in your settings file but will be shown with light grey font colour and marked with a red minus symbol. So if you change you mind about a channel, you simply have to remove the marking. If you save a settings file or write it into the receiver, all unwanted channels or transponders are deleted. To mark one or more channels as unwanted there are three possibilities: You can open the channel data window (double click on the channel) and click on "unwanted" there. You can use the "mark as" function from the channel list menu or the shortcut "Strg-Alt-K" to mark one or more selected channels as unwanted. If you go through the channel list and realise that a transponder only contains channels you don't want to watch, you have the possibility to mark the whole transponder and all its channels as "unwanted". Note: If you mark a transponder as unwanted and than adapt a settings file so this wish list, all channels of this transponder will automatically be marked as unwanted, even if they were new! To do this you can double click on the transponder and then click on unwanted in the transponder data window. But if you want to continue editing the channel list you have to click on "All" in the satellite list and then scroll to the position in the channel list where you want to continue. So it's much easier to select a channel of the transponder you want to mark as unwanted and then use the function "mark as" -> "TP of this channel unwanted" of the channel list menu or use the shortcut "Strg-Alt-T". You can mark channels which you always want to keep in your settings but which may not always be found by the receiver (for example because they are not active all the time) as "extra" channels. These channels will always be added when you adapt a settings file to your wish list. You also have the possibility to link a channel with one or more alternative channels. To do this select these channels and select the function "mark as" -> "linked" of the channel list menu. This means

when you adapt a settings file to this wish list and the first of the linked channels is not found, this channel will be replaced by the next channel which is linked to it. It is possible to link more then two channels. If you adapt a settings file to this wish list the first of the linked channels that is found will be moved to the corresponding position in the channel list. Example: You have got a HD receiver and a "not HD" (SD) receiver. In your wish list you move the channel arteHD on position 9 and mark the normal arte channel as unwanted. Then you link those two channels. So if you adapt a settings file from your HD receiver to this wish list and write it into this receiver, you will find the channel arteHD on position 9 and arte (SD) will be deleted because it is marked as unwanted. If you adapt a settings file of the "not HD" receiver to this wish list and write it into this receiver, the channel arteHD will not be found and so the alternative channel arte (SD) will be moved to position 9, even though it had been marked as unwanted before. So you only need to create one wish list, which you can use for both receivers. With "mark as" -> "not linked" you can delete such a link. Save a wish list: If you have created your personal wish list you should save it. Please click on the button "File" and choose the function "Save wish list". You get a window, where you can enter a name for your wish list and choose where you want to save it. All wish lists get the extension ".wish". All channels, transponders and satellites are saved even if they are not wanted, extra or not found. You have the possibility to save more than one wish list. This may be interesting if you have got more than one receiver and if those receivers are used from different persons with different preferences. Adapt a settings file to a wish list: If you have saved a wish list you can now adapt any settings file (if you have got the corresponding SetEdit full version) to this wish list and then write it into the receiver. For example you make a channel research on the corresponding satellites with your receiver than you read this settings file from your receiver and open it with SetEdit. Now please click on the button "File" and choose the function "Adapt settings to a wish list". You get a window where you can choose the wish list you want to adapt your settings to and click on "OK". Now each channel of the wish list will be searched in the settings file. Channels which are found appear in the channel list on the corresponding position. If a channel is not found it also appears in the channel list but with a light grey font colour and marked with a red X. Extra channels will always be added, if they are found or not. The unwanted channels are moved to the end of the channel list, appear with light grey font colour and are marked with a minus symbol. Channels which only appear in your settings file and which haven't been in the wish list before, will be marked with an "N" as new channels. New channels also appear at the end of the channel list but before the unwanted channels. Note: If a new channel is found on a transponder which is marked as unwanted, this channel will automatically be marked as "unwanted" and not as "new"! Administer wish settings: Now you can for example edit the "new" or "not found" channels.

With the shortcut "STRG-Alt-N" you get from your actual position in the channel list to the position of the next "not found" or "new" channel. With the shortcut "STRG-Alt-P" you move the actual selected channel to the first position of the new channels. Then the next channel in the channel list will be selected. With the shortcut "STRG-Alt-K" you can mark the actual selected channel as "unwanted", the next channel in the channel list will be selected automatically. With the shortcut "STRG-Alt-T" you can mark the transponder of the actual selected channel and all other channels of this transponder as "unwanted". Note: If you mark a transponder as unwanted and than adapt a settings file so this wish list, all channels of this transponder will automatically be marked as unwanted, even if they were new! If a channel is not found because it doesn't exist anymore or the frequency has changed, you can of course delete this channel or replace it by the corresponding new channel (if the frequency has changed). If a channel is not found because of other reasons - for example because it isn't active all the time and so it hasn't been found with the channel research of the receiver - you can either mark it as "Extra" or you don't change it at all. If you save this file with "Save wish list" these channels will be saved too, but without the marker for "not found". The markers for new channels will disappear too. But if you save the settings file or write it into the receiver all "not found" or "unwanted" channels will be deleted. All markers concerning the wish list functions will disappear too. Write wish settings into the receiver: If you have adapted a settings file to your wish list and if you have edited new or not found channels (if there are any of them in your adapted settings file), you can finally write this settings file into your receiver. Please click on the button "File" and choose the function "Write into receiver". You get a message. Please follow the instructions in this message to transfer the settings into your receiver. All "unwanted" channels and transponders and all "not found" channels which are not marked as "Extra" channels will be deleted.

If you activate Show channel count in lists the number of channels of each satellite, transponder and the 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 polarised transponders, vertical polarised transponders
TV channels and radio channels
TV or radio channels that are in the favourite list
Transponder, satellite and FAV list of an actually selected channel (Active Tr/Sat/FAV)

Channel duplicates

Empty transponders
New or not existing channels (for the import function, see chapter 3.h)
The icons for e.g. "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 SetEditSL65 format. Sort channel list by satellites: The channels of the source list will be sorted by satellites, when you convert into the SL65 Silvercrest format. Convert labels to FAV lists: The first one labels of the source list will be converted to FAV lists. Convert providers to FAV lists: The first one providers of the source list will be converted to FAV lists. Convert FAV lists to satellites: All FAV lists of the source list will be converted to satellites. Note: If you want to use this function it is important that each FAV list of the source list only contains channels of one satellite. To make a satellite empty there is the function "clear" in the satellite menu (see chapter 5.d.) This option may be useful for example if the source list has more FAV lists as you can have in your SetEditSL65 settings and you want to keep all of them. Take FAV list(s) from source list: All FAV lists will be taken from the source list. As the SL65 Silvercrest receivers only have one FAV list, all channels that were in any FAV list before, will be assigned to this favourite list. If you want to convert a SetEditSL65 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.

With View sorted by you can select if the transponders are displayed in their original order or sorted by frequency or polarity. The transponders will remain in the original order internally. With Sort you can sort the transponder list by frequencies or polarities. With this function you also change the internal order off the transponders. With Change data you can change the parameters of a selected transponder. You get the following window:
You can also call this function with a double-click on a transponder. Here you can change the frequency, the polarity and the symbol rate of a transponder and you can enter a name for this transponder. If you mark a transponder as unwanted, the transponder and all its channels will be shown with light grey font in the corresponding list and will be marked with a red minus. Caution: If you save a settings file, all unwanted channels and transponders are deleted. You need these markings for the wish lists functions (see chapter 3.k). These changes are made for all channels that use this transponder too. With Delete you can delete a transponder and all its channels. You can also use the Del key on your keyboard. If the transponder has channels, you are asked if you really want to delete these channels. If you want to delete a transponder without checking if existing channels are deleted too, you can use the shortcut Ctrl-Del. With Delete all empty transponders you can delete all transponders that don't contain channels. With New you can create a new transponder or a new TV or Radio channel on the selected transponder.
If you want to create a new transponder, and a satellite is selected in the satellite list, the transponder is assigned to this satellite. If "All" is selected in the satellite list and a transponder is selected in the transponder list, the new transponder is assigned to the satellite of this selected transponder. If "All" is selected in the satellite list and no transponder is selected, you can't create a new transponder.
If you select a transponder a little dot appears in front of this transponder and of all transponders with the same satellite. Transponder marked in red are empty; they contain no channels. If a transponder name is marked red there is a duplicate of this transponder in the settings. In the frame of the transponder list there are several uppercase letters for the following functions: O: The transponders are shown in original order. F: The transponders are shown sorted by frequencies. P: The transponders are shown sorted by polarities.

5.f Favourites

The SL65 Silvercrest receivers have one favourite list into which you can copy your favourite channels.
When you click with the right mouse button in the favourite list, you get the following menu:
With Export you can save a selected FAV list. With Import you can load a previously saved FAV list. Channels that are in the FAV list are marked in the channel list with a darker background colour. (You can change these colours in the configuration.) Add/remove a channel to/from the FAV list: To add one or more channels to the FAV list, please select the channel(s) you want to add to the FAV list. Now you can drag them to the FAV list (drop them on the name of the list). They are added at the end of this FAV list. To remove a channel from the FAV list, please select the FAV list and then the channel that you want to remove from the favourite list and use the delete function of the channel list menu or hit the Del key on your keyboard. If you delete a channel within the FAV list, this channel is only removed from the FAV list and not from the main list. It is also possible to assign one or more channel(s) to the FAV list or remove them from the FAV list with the help of the "Mark as" function in the channel list menu. Change channel order within a FAV list: To change the order of the favourite channels, please select the channel(s) you wish to move. Now you can drag them to the position within the FAV list where you want to have them (drop them on the new position). Within the favourites you can change the order independently of the order in the main list. If you now change the order by using the drag & drop function you will only change the order within the FAV list but not the order of the main list. In the opposite way the order of the channels in the FAV list will not change, if you change the order of the channels in the main list.

With this receiver, you are able to receive digital satellite channels via a satellite antenna. You need not program the receiver. The most common broadcasting stations of the mostly used satellites are pre-programmed. You can receive the channels broadcasted through these satellites as soon as you have connected the receiver to a satellite antenna and oriented it to one of these satellites. The receiver will scan for further new broadcasting stations as soon as you initiate the automatic scanning of broadcasting stations for this satellite. All receiver settings can be done easily using the user interface (menu) on the TV-monitor. The user interface supports the following languages: German English French Greek Italian Dutch Polish Portuguese Swedish Spanish Czech Turkish Croatian Hungarian Norwegian They are pre-programmed by the company: ASTRA1 19,2 E 13

Please read the information on our website for this purpose.

Connecting the Receiver

The receiver is connected by means of an LNB cable with the connector box of your satellite antenna. You must install the LNB cable before connecting the receiver, if necessary. The LNB cable is not included in the scope of supply.

Connection with the Cinch cable
If you own a TV set not provided with a SCART socket, you can connect the receiver via a Cinch cable. Connect the VIDEO socket on the receiver to the video input of the TV set. Connect the AUDIO-R and AUDIO-L sockets of the receiver to the audio inputs of the TV set.
Connection of an Audio-Digital Receiver
If you want to use 5-channel audio transmission (Dolby digital sound/AC3), you must connect your audio-digital receiver to the optical or coaxial output of the receiver.
Never connect the Phono input of your stereo system to the receiver; it may damage your stereo system. Strictly follow instructions for connecting the Cinch cable given in the operating manual of your stereo system.
Please follow strictly the information regarding the connection in the operating manual of your audio-digital receiver. The optical and coaxial cables are not included in the scope of supply. Your TV set need not be switched on for radio reception. You must switch on the TV set if you want to receive TV sound through your stereo system.
Connection of the coaxial digital output Insert the coaxial cable in the COAXIAL socket on the receiver. Connect the coaxial cable to the audio-digital receiver. Connection diagram
Connection of the optical digital output Pull the protective cap out of the "OPTICAL socket on the receiver. Insert the optical cable in the OPTICAL socket on the receiver. Connect the optical cable to the audio-digital receiver. Connection diagram
Connection and rough direction of the antenna
You must connect the antenna cable to the LNB before directing the antenna. Please follow also the instructions in the operating manual of your satellite antenna.
The receiver should only be connected to the power supply after you have connected the antenna cable to the receiver. Screw the F plug to the LNB connection. If you have not mounted and directed your satellite system yet, you must first find a suitable location for mounting the antenna. Please make sure that the antenna is directed towards the south-east. This means, you must have a free view in this direction when you stand behind the antenna. Keep in mind that the antenna must never be mounted behind a balustrade, a handrail or other obstacles (such as trees). Searching the southern direction, the position of the sun might help you. During daylight saving time, the sun is exactly in southern position at 12 am noon and during winter at 1 pm. South South

East 29

You must have this view when standing behind the antenna. In this angle of 90 nearly all common satellite positions, such as ASTRA 19.2 E, Eutelsat Hotbird 13 E, and Trksat 42 E, can be found. Depending on which satellite you wish to receive, there must be free sight without any obstacles in this angle. This must especially be ensured with an installation on a wall. Make sure that you can turn your antenna completely without having contact with the wall of your house before installing a corresponding wall bracket (not necessarily included in the scope of supply). After having made all relevant connections you can now start with the setup of the antenna. Please check again that the receiver is connected with the LNB of the antenna and the receiver with your TV set. As soon as these cable connections have been made correctly, you can switch on the devices. First step: Switch on your TV set. Please make sure that your TV set has been adjusted to the receiver. In case of a Scart connection, the TV set must be set to the correct AV channel. Second step: Now, switch on your receiver. Please ensure that the receive has been preset for the most common satellites and their channels and that you just have to enter the channel locations via the numeric keys on the remote control of the receiver. Example: If you wish to receive the satellite ASTRA1 19.2 E, you must set your receiver to channel location 1 for directing the antenna. The same applies also for other satellites, such as Hotbird. If you wish to direct your antenna to Hotbird, just call a preset channel of Hotbird with your receiver. 30

Third step: Now, direct your antenna to the satellite you selected. You have several options to do so. The easiest and most cost-effective solution is the following way: Stand behind the antenna and move the antenna completely into vertical position (see picture B). Make sure that the receiving component of the antenna is directed towards the south (see picture A). South

Picture A

Picture B
Now, turn your antenna slowly towards the east (to the left) while observing the TV set, until the receiving component points exactly towards the east, i.e. rotate by 90. See picture C South
In case of digital satellite reception, the receiver receives the transmission signal with a time lag. Therefore, turn the antenna very slowly and wait at each position for some seconds until the receiver shows the signal strength on the screen menu. Now, move your antenna in such a way that it will become steeper by 1 For this purpose, pull at the top of the antenna. Now, return. the antenna slowly to its initial position towards the south. Now, turn the antenna once again 1 steeper and move it again to the left in eastern direction. Repeat these steps until the vertical elevation angle crosses the horizontal azimuth angle, e.g. for ASTRA1 at 19.2 east, and you are receiving the set channel on your TV set. Now, please check again if you are receiving the channel set on the receiver and zap through the channels with the CH and CH keys of the receiver or by using the remote control. As soon as you have found the desired satellite, you should improve the direction of the antenna until you get a clear image on all channels. You can achieve this by an optimum adjustment of the vertical elevation angle and the horizontal azimuth angle. (see pictures A and B). Please use also the indication of the signal strength and signal quality by pressing the INFO key. Finally tighten all screws thoroughly to make sure that the direction of your antenna cannot change anymore.
