How do I limit the number of satellites showing in the Camera AR view screen?

I'm using the new DP AR Pro on an iPad2 with IOS 5 to locate direct tv satellites 99w, 101w, and 103w. My satellite dish is a SWM 3LNB.

I have two questions; first why do I see so many satellites in the Camera AR View screen when I have deleted all but the three satelliltes mentioned above, and second, I'm not sure I have selected the right three satellites to save since the AR Pro version does not give me the same satellite choices as appears on the PC version. In that version I select the item titled "Directv SL3 (99w, 101w, 103w)" from the Multi-LNB section of the menu. Can anyone shed light on these issues? Tx

Just de-selecting the satellites would do. When you delete active satellites, they don't get removed due to a bug which will be addressed with the next release. For now you could download the latest satellite file (just hit the update button) and then de-select the satellite you don't want.

The 99, 101 and 103 satellites are the ones you are looking for with your SL3 dish.

I updated the satellite list then again deleted all but the three I want, 99, 101, and 103. I also placed a check mark beside these three in the list. However, I still see all of the satellites in the camera view, Is that what i should expect until the fix?

How do I get this to work with the iPhone 4S and pro version? I deleted most of the W satellites that I didn't want but some still show up besides the 2 that I have "selected". By selected do you mean the check mark? So tried to start over and hit update. Got the message that no update is available. So how can I get just the above 3 satellites until the bugs are fixed?

And when can I expect the bugs to be fixed?

I've got pics of the list and sats if that helps.

Hello

I'm working full steam on the iPhone app now but it is a major update so it will be a few more weeks. The bug will be fixed with that update. For now there is no workaround except to just not look at the other satellites.
