I recently aquired a 10 mesh dish which was being thrown out. I have installed it and have aligned it. The receiver i am using now is a veiwsat pro, but the blind scan feature is useless. I am considering buying a openbox S9 or S10 and was wondering if anybody knowns if the blind scan feature is any good.

Will it tell me what satellite i'me on even if I don't know or not sure, and will it scan in chanells.

Any info would be appreciated.

S9 blind scan is capable. Compares to the my Pansat 9200, I would say. My S9 will usually get em if the SR is +2000. Will miss most, if not all below that, but some of the later FW has an "accurate Scan" option. I don't know if that then gets the low SR channels or not. Have not tried it myself.(not many with SR's in the 1000-2000 range, and usually,are itinerant)

No, you have to look for a hot TP to know what satellite you're on.

Just be sure you buy from a distributor that when you have a problem they will be there for you.

Greetings, Im very new to the FTA world. My friend introduced this to me a couple of years ago before the big format switch. I remember very little about the set up so I guess Im ew to the game again. I just purchased an openbox s9. To say the least, Im am completely lost. Not to mention, The forum post i have read have went over my head. Is there anyone out there that can slowly walk me through what I need to do to get this thing up and running? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
