Is there a way to set the timers to go to a specific program or is this a future addition? From what I've been able to determine, you can tell the unit to turn off or on but you can't select a program channel. It makes no sense to provide a timer function without allowing you to select a specific program/channel.
Before I got the Vantage 1100S, my only source for DVB-S2 signals was finding it on some forum, here, or at Rick's or Lyngsat. Now I can blindscan with the 1100S. I used my CS8000 for aiming the dish at the DVB-S2 signal, the CS8000 is pretty good for that.
The CS5000 is not DVB-S2 compatible . Until blindscan comes to the AZbox, you're going to have to use manual entry of the tp's , when you discover them, by one means or another.
I don't use "favorites" but to access them from awatching TV, Press "OK" and on the TABS at the top, you'll see the rightmost tab is FAV . That's where they are.
I will say that the signal strength meter on the AZbox is poor and very uninformative. One of the numerous little things that hopefully will be improved in upcoming firmware releases.
I know where its located, Just dont know how to access it.
Yes,It definitely helped, and No its not in the manual.I had the same problem. I could see the favorites tab but could never get to it...until...I found this quite by mistake (although it could be in the manual).
When you hit the ok button while watching tv, that screen will appear with the tabs across the top. When it is on the screen, hit the exit button and the top tab will now become highlighted. Then you can use the arrow keys to move over to the favorites tab.
Hope this helps.
