Thread: DM800 HD - Enigma 2 - channel help


Forum: Linux Receiver Settings

Hi, I'm new to all of this. I used to have a Dreambox 500c a while ago but am finding this satellite setup a bit more complicated. At the minute all I am attempting to do is connect my new Dreambox 800 HD to my fixed dish (sky) and scan for channels. I'll look into all the cs stuff later but I can't get my head around the settings to use to scan for the 'free' channels, even such as BBC and ITV. It's using engima 2, nemesis 2.4. I really need someone to go through all of the settings with me.

    DM800 HD - Enigma 2 - channel help

    Hi,
    I'm new to all of this. I used to have a Dreambox 500c a while ago but am finding this satellite setup a bit more complicated. At the minute all I am attempting to do is connect my new Dreambox 800 HD to my fixed dish (sky) and scan for channels. I'll look into all the cs stuff later but I can't get my head around the settings to use to scan for the 'free' channels, even such as BBC and ITV. It's using engima 2, nemesis 2.4. I really need someone to go through all of the settings with me. Apologies for being so annoying but help with this would be much appreciated! HELP!

    Ok first things first, have you configured your tuner?

    If not then set it as follows:

    Simple
    Single
    28.2e

    Let us know how that goes m8

    Scanning now, finding loads more now. It's done 10% and found 100 services. There are lots of duplicates though is that ok?

    Yes that's normal as there are a lot of regional variations m8,

    Should find about 900ish I think

    Ok for a new user the next best thing to do would be install a channel list,this will give some sort of order to all those channels you got on your scan,

    Have a look on here for Rat's bouquets, which are probably the best ones for the UK channels,
