Hello, all!

I have an issue with my Azbox that has always troubled me - to a point I rarely listen to radio via satellite.

When I hit the "TV/Radio" button on the remote control, it starts moving the dish off of the current satellite. In other receivers I've owned, when I toggled between tv and radio, it would stay put on the same bird, typically on the previously watched channel. With the Azbox, even if I listen to a radio station on, say, for example, 95w, then go back to watching a tv channel on that very satellite, if I hit the radio button again it starts moving the dish towards 97w or 101w, or farther - in an apparently erratic fashion.

Has anyone else experienced this behavior? Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks, guys.

It has been awhile since I have had radio ch`s scanned in as radio ch`s on my AZPlus.Last time was when the ch`s were still available on Galaxy 17 and I do not ever recall an issue like what is being described.One thing you can do if it can not be resolved is scan your radio ch`s in manual pid entry and they will be in your tv menu.I do that here with AMC 1.

That sounds like an interesting solution. Now, how do I scan radio channels in manual PID entry?

Since you mentioned 95 I scanned in the radio ch`s and changed back and forth from tv/radio many times with no issue at all of my dish moving.It went right back to the last tv ch that was being viewed.This is using an ASC1 positioner for 1 of my BUD`s using Diseqc commands.What type of setup do you have pjcl?.Cband--,Vbox,Gbox,ASC1?..Ku-- Diseqc,usals?.

After tinkering a bit with that I reloaded my previous list and did a manual pid entry of a single radio ch on 95.I just duplicated what was given to me after a normal scan using MT101 for example.

Go into Advanced scan,select correct TP Frequency ( 12050 H 20000 ) scroll down to PID Edit,hit the green button to add then go to work duplicating the pids that you had saved from a normal scan.After all radio ch`s are deleted and ch`s are scanned back in using this method I would back up your sat ch list and save it for future in case of any corruption.

Good luck.

I'm going to try that. Thank you.

Hey, Hockeynut. I tried to follow the instructions, but I wasn't sucessful. What do you mean "duplicate"? Where? I can't even tell what the PID's for the MTIs are... I'm using USALS, by the way, and to answer your question.

Take a look at your pids in pid edit before you delete the radio ch`s.Write down your info MT101,etc,etc...Which ch`s you want....Then delete them....Reboot after deleting and then follow instructions.They will be there in your tv ch`s pjcl.
