Scan for specific Freq on Coolsat 4000 Pro?
I hope someone can help me. I have a Coolsat 4000 Pro, Stabb HH90 , Fortec Star 36 inch which I paid to have set up. I know nothing about this just want stations from South America.
I couldn't find one station from SA until I did a blind scan on Nahuel 1 and found Unsion from Ecuador. I know from this there has to be many others but my question is this. Is there a way to program in a specific Freq to scan for let's say Ecuavisa? So far I can find nothing, in the poor excuse for a manual that came with my receiver. Does anyone know if this is possible and if so how do I go about doing this? Oy I need help!

Hello Tron, I did scan the Sat's that are supposed to have the SA stations but I didn't find a thing. But I'm going to scan again to see if this time it will take. All the Sat's and Freqs I have I checked with lyngsat two day's ago then again today. Thank you for responding and your advise.

Well looking at Lyngsat, there are about 6 stations on the Latin American beam including the one that you received while blind scanning. Obviously Ecuvisa is on the beam to North American so you can receive it. However, since you did a blind scan and received no others, chances are the others are not on the North American beam and cannot be received from your location. The way to scan a specific frequency is to use the Manual Scan feature. Press the green button to add a new transponder - add the frequency, symbol rate and either H or V and then press OK to scan. Like Tron said, Lyngsat is a tool and they are not always correct in their information.

Thank you SOOOOOO much!
I believe that I can receive at least Ecuavisa because I couldn't find Unsion either. I scanned all forms except for manual and I found nothing. This last time I scanned Blind again and Unsion came up it's on TP 21 Just like Ecuavisa and they are close in freq. Unsion is 11611 and Ecuavisa is 11614 both on Nahuel 1, that's why I want to try to scan manually. Thank you again for your help. You have no idea how much this has helped me out!

It didn't work! :)
Thank you for your help.
Oh, oh I did find Canal 48 with no other freq interrupting on another Sat and one from Salta Argentina and they all come in crystal clear. Boy I'm on a roll. Now for Telecuador, Ecuavisa and TeleAmazonas.
