Also, do you know that with a C/KU band dish and motor and vbox that over 1000 channels must be scanned into your unit? And that means that if you want to blind scan, it will take you ALL DAY? MAYBE 2 days! Probably 3 days!As long as there is one or two 24/7 transponders per satellite loaded in you can use the blind scan to find the rest

I like how it sets up usals, all the way to numbering each of the usals too? Blind scan is for people who do not know where each channel and satellite is; I must know where they all are! And I must be able to receive them! Like using a 10 foot dish and no smaller, every channel is received first on C Band for ALL CABLE CHANNELS! An fta dish receiver; however; is the way to receive all FTA channels! Mixed sets of channels is now the norm, as is dolby digital, so one must have one S2 with AC3 receiver! Scanning these by fire all the time; no way!, well manual entry rules the world, so get a receiver with manual entry too, like this one! DVR, sure! Timeshift? Great! It has it all! Media play? Yah!After blind scanning a satellite I like to check out what I just scanned on that satellite. So I exit back to video..mash exit on the moving nag. I hit enter and it has a list of all my channels on all satellites. It should default to just the satellite we just scanned. If I highlight the channels I can't tell what satellite it is on, so I press right or left to get to the satellite I am on, but it starts at the beginning of the arc and I have to mash right a bunch of times to get to the one I want and the dish moves again of course. Kinda of annoying when you scanning around and want to see what goodies you found.
On other receivers that would allow you to review the channels you just blind scanned before going back to the menus, you didn't need this feature.
True, but manual entry then means I enter one at a time quicker!and???
Its not like you are going to blind scan every satellite every day
I guess I'd rather have one transponder that I know is good per satellite than have 25 that are bunk which requires me to delete them
NO MEDS; NO DRUGS; NO ABUSER'sit doesnt take all day to blind scan all the satellites. Remember some satellites only have 1 or 2 TP's with free channels on them. But if you want to blind scan the whole satellite it only takes a few extra minutes
The rest of what you wrote I have no clue what the hell you are jabbering about...sounds like someone is missing their medications
I will tell you what I did. Now you can set it up howver you want but here is what I did. Made it easier for the channel list since I have mine going form E to WOK, look here, I have a new microHD; and setting it up for a large number of channels; and want it to be my meter and program easily! So what do I do? I start scanning channels, and entering motor positions, and program for USALS. Should I enter with manual entry all that I want, or use blind scan?
I assume you mean set up receiverswell, i do satellites like this one for others also, and they love it.
ok...dont know what that has to do with the conversation but whateverWhen I'm in Rome, I install for Roman's.
blind scan normal works fine for most applications. and scan time depends on different factorsNow, how long did it take for me to blind scan - detailed; all 50 satellites programmed; and then how long did it take me to scan entering each PCR?
Are u trying to ask me a question, or provide your own answer? This place in VR is for microHD and Future developments wanted.RR, if you are in the wind and have an show room -- I battle the wind while I am on the road. Is the wind going to blow me to your show room --- or away from it? I have not spotted you in 250,000 miles of driving -- unless that was you in Arizona trying to sell me FREE TV with a small dish.
Ah, yah, I know you. You set-up sound; and play around the World. Only worked for you once, but you paid the fee's. Lights, sound, and "you are the stage set-up guy?"...I carry a Primestar 75e, often hanging on the back ladder, take it down to set up. Rugged, sets up very quckly, and has good aim and rejection. I used the original Glorystar (Geosat) dish, then added the LNB support arms, but was still too easy to damage. I have that one fixed at a rental. Going to give the new GeosatPRO a try. Seems much sturdier and lighter than the Primestar. I may not have it ready for next weekend as I had hoped. Doing a setup near Bellingham WA.
