    Hello Guys.

    I've just purchased a WS 6908 version 2.4 satellite finder, with satellites list for ASIA, but that's not my problem, I was able to manually change them,
    my problem is that the setup screen will allow me to change the time zone, but not my longitude nor my latitude, any suggestions??
    Every thing else seems to be fine, but I have yet to test it hooked up to the LNB
    Thanks.

    Longitude / Latitude is changed in the USALS menu. No reason to change unless you are trying to move a HH motor.

    [FONT=&quot]Thanks for the file. [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I put it on a USB stick (multiples), turned unit on, went to menu/tools/software upgrade[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I tried every combination of p2p/p2m & allcode/logo/program list.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]I get:[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Checking serial port/connection time out retry > to infinity.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]What am I doing wrong?[/FONT]

    If using the loader it wants a .bin file.
    What would I use for a .ssu file?

    http://www.sat-link.com.au/satlink/ws-6908.htm has software download. [CD content:} Includes all three areas ssu file. (Asia, Americas and European) Don't know if they are kept 'up to date' with TP info tho-. The constant 'shuffling' on some would keep them way too busy IMHO.
    Also downloads for other models on their own pages.

    Are you using the.ssu file on a SATlink WS-6908? Perhaps if you change the name of the .ssu file on our usb stick to userdb.ssu and retry to load it.
