    Need some help to set up TM 800 HD to multi satellite

    Had Tm 800 HD set up in advanced mode Fixed dish with diseqc switch to find 19.0e. 16.0e & 13.0e from my sons motorised dish.

    What I would like to do now is replace my sons box with the TM 800 HD to move the dish
    all we need are 28.0e, 19.0e, 16.0e and 13.0e

    Tried to set it up yesterday and found Astra 28.0e, but wasn't sure how to find the other three ended up losing Astra.
    So put my sons old DM7020 back on all Sats still in his memory.

    Any help appreciated (although I am searching forum) and found this

    Hi , i notice you say setup /simple/positioner.Try this

    1) set up- service searching-tuner configuration
    2) Set satellite to 28.2e
    2) Configuration mode- set to advanced then lnb to lnb1
    3) Set diseqc mode to 1.2
    4) Scroll down and enter latitude and longitude
    5) select usals - yes press ok
    6 select tuner config again
    7) select next sat ie 13 e and set lnb to lnb1
    8) the rest should now self populate - press ok
    9) repeat steps 6-8 for all sats you wish to locate

    You should now be able to see all the sats configured and scan them.
    If you need to fine tune any sat(using positioner) be sure you know which location your motor has stored each satellite.ie on TM2600 28.3 E is position 18 and 13 e is position 1

    do a manual setup.

    1) set up- service searching-tuner configuration
    2) Set satellite to 28.2e
    2) Configuration mode- set to advanced then lnb left scroll to lnb32
    3) Set diseqc mode to 1.2
    4) Scroll down and enter latitude and longitude no:
    5) select position 1- press ok
    6 zap back to tuner config =yes
    7 select tuner config again
    8) select next sat ie 19 e and set lnb to lnb32
    9) the rest should now self populate - press ok
    9) repeat steps 6-9 for all sats you wish to locate and dont forget to number each sat , ie 28 no:1 19 no:2 16 no:3 etc

    Goto a channel on a tp and manually tune :

    Menu
    service searching
    positioner setup

    here you should see channel frequency

    search east or west until you tune to signal

    use step east or west to gain max signal

    go to position number: remembering what you set them to in tuner config: ie 28=1 etc.

    now press the green button to save position, exit and zap back yes, then follow on all other sats.

    hope this helps

    Technomate are correct m8,
    But do you have a channel list on your box that covers the satellites your looking for,

    If you have done as suggested by technomate then just open your bouquets and select a channel on the satellite you require and it should turn your motor to that satellite,

    As for 25 views and no help,maybe the people who looked at it didnt know the answer

    Any e2 channel settings will work but make sure it is up to date , and trust me manual tuning advanced mode is old hat but far better way of tuning in my opinion

    What image are you using? The last DWIQ image had a satellite.xml file with Astra 28.2 only.

    As posted above, ftp/download the latest multi-sat list and you will be able to set it up as per instructions given to you. Enigma 2 Channel Lists

    Re: Need some help to set up TM 800 HD to multi satellite

    Thanks for the replies, given me plenty to try this evening, think I will try manual mode as I have tried usals and it didn't work as I said earlier, when I select a channel from bouquet the flashing dish comes up on screen but doesn't find anything, I think it actually stayed pointing at Astra, as when I changed tuner config back to advanced (old Setting) Astra came up without flashing icon.
    Hope this makes sense, will print all suggestions and try tonight, sorry about 25 views no response but it did work didn't it?
    Regards & thanks

    Re: Need some help to set up TM 800 HD to multi satellite

    Tried Manual setup
    Result was, Found all Sats 28, 19, 16, 13e manually
    then started with Astra 28e looking for other sats couldn't find them but returned to Astra OKAY!
    So I tried Simple with USALS
    Result was: found 28, 19, 13e (16 came up Tuner not configured) thought I was winning so left alone
    BUT when going back down the line from 13 - 19 was okay but Astra 28e slight off tune
    So New Question: Can I tune this in manually (28e) so other two remain okay and how do I get 16e up and running
    Thanks for help from whitevanman555, wiz569 and forest1
