    Exclamation DM800 motor set-up

    If your using DiSEqC 1.2 you will have to set-up the dish positions manually. If your usuing USALS it should be automatic.

    Here's the USALS procedure from memory
    First make sure the dish is correctly aligned on a satellite, eg THOR 1W

    Press Menu -> Set Up -> Service Searching -> Tuner Configuration

    Choose Tuner
    ALPS BSBE2 (DVB-S2) - Press OK

    Configuration Mode: Advanced

    Satellite : THOR 1W

    Voltage Mode: Polarization

    Tone Mode: band

    LNB : LNB 1

    DiSEqC Mode: 1.2

    Use USALS for this Sat: Yes

    Longitude: Set this to the correct Longitude for your area.
    To find the correct longitude settings for your area go to the following website
    Worldwide map search, route finder and travel directions - powered by Multimap

    In the "Find a Map" box at the top left of the page, enter your post code.
    Select your country in the drop down box below it and click on the "Find" button.

    This will display a map on the screen and below the map at the bottom right you
    will see your Latitude information, example below for Post Code NW1 UK :-

    Lat: 51:31:59N (51.53319)
    Lon: 0:08:40W (-0.1445)

    So in this example in the Dreambox menu you'd set

    Longitude: 51.533
    West

    Nice one Bod. My dish is still pointing nowhere as I thought I would leave it for a week, then get back into it.
