The actual 500s does not move the motor for some strange reason , is it because i need to manually move the motor to store the satts ?
when i turn it all it keeps sayin is "moving motor to Thor wotever "... but the motor does not move ?
Ah ok then m8,I really should have read your first post properly lol
Try that guide by digi its good m8
What image you using ?
What motor you got ?
I can't get usals to work so I programmed each sat from the 2300 manual then when I select a different sat it goes to the preset (by manufacturer) position.
0.8 is programmed in but I don't get it because I put my dish in the wrong location and there is a house in the way (going to relocate it someday).
When I select usals it moves the dish but doesn't lock onto anything but I think it,s my quick lashup here so I turn goto x (usals) off and rely on the motor presets.
If you have the same motor I can send you a backup image from my box (pli-jade 3 maxvar)
Ok so presuming you have set the motor elevation,made sure pole is plumb,made sure dish is lined up on the motors pole ok.....
turn whole dish and motor assembly together so that its pointing due south (which will be roughly the same as your longtitude),now on the box enter your long and lat settings and then send the box to 0 degrees,
Now try sending it to 28.2e as this has a stronger signal,once the dish stops turning then try moving it left/right/up/down very slighty till it locks on,
when you get that far then try sending it to thor m8 and again tweak it slighty till your happy,
hopefully all the rest will fall in after that
Ok not to appear to be treating you like an idiot,
When you say you dont know how to send it anywhere do you really mean it,
or is it not responding to your button presses?
Have you got any channel settings on it ( Bouquets etc)?
seriously lol i dont know wot i am doin hahah
i know dbox like back of my hand , and i am sure i will get used to this too !
there does not seem to be any bouquets set up .
do the sats and motor need tunin in manually , or should the co ordinates already be in there ?
surely , when i turn to thor the motor moves to a pre set position ( then i just fine tune ) ??
oh it responds to the step left and right ( it just movees a TINY bit ) at the press of the button
Yes but how does it know where thor is (think about it )
If you enter your longitude and latitude in the usals settings and then send it to 0 degrees from the box menu it will be almost there then you phyisically move the dish/motor slightly to tweak it,
it cant move to thor if it doesnt know where it is to start with m8,
your best bet is to download some channel settings from the blue button menu if connected to internet,then chose say BBC world on thor and after doing the steps above in earlier post keep moving dish till you get a picture.
so my dish is south..lat and long are in my box already and it is at 0 degrees .
Is thor the one to pick up first there ?
then how do i get..like astra then ? ok dont answer that lol..let me try get a pic first hahahah
edit..lovin this..i really like learnin new stuff pmsl !!
ok m8 try thor but if you have no luck then put dish back to due south by hand,make sure dish is still on 0 degree's then chose a channel on 28.2e let the box move around to where it thinks the sat is and then tweak it the same as described earlier lol,
But dont mistake me for an expert m8 but this is how i got mine going so it might help you
Right i'm away for a bit will check back in with you later
put on 0deg and use bbc world channel then get the best signal then lock dish the use urls to get each channeli managed to get some al jazeraan cartoon on...but that was the only thing i could get...gone dark now so will try again tomoz !
cheers for helpin me )
