Replacing your existing IRD with a 4DTV
|Galaxy 10= G0
1. Before disconnecting your old unit, position your system to G0/7. Connect power and dish cables to the new unit.
2. Press OPTION 6, 4, 2, Select your type of actuator and LNB type. Select "STANDARD" Feedhorn for now.
3. Press GO BACK
4. Press 3 to get to the east/west limits screen. Press 3 to get to the Program Satellites screen. *You can set your limits as you program the satellites then go back and put the limits in once you know where the satellites are, however, programming satellites without setting the limits may cause damage to the dish, actuator, roof, etc.
5. Use the arrow keys on the remote control and position the yellow cursor over the G0 tile then press ENTER.
6. You are now shown the Satellite Adjustment screen. Because the 4DTV always puts you on channel 1 when you program a satellite you may want to change to a known channel of the satellite you intend to identify as the satellite you are on. This being G0, there aren't any reliable "in the clear channels" so you may want to use channel 15 as a target channel. If you are subscribed to Showtime, and have already installed a VC module, you should get a picture, if not, you will get a black screen and a pop-up message that will identify the channel as Showtime West.
7. If needed, press 2 (or use the down-arrow) to select dish position control.
8. Use the east or west arrows buttons to move the dish until you locate the desired signal. The dish should already be close to G0 if it was left at this position before installation. Once you have found the correct "known" channel on the selected satellite, adjust the dish position to maximize quality.
9. Press 4 (or arrow-down) to Skew Adjust. Adjust the skew to maximize quality. You may choose to use the auto skew feature by pressing 5 (or arrow-down).
10. Channel up/down to a channel of opposite polarity and adjust skew again to optimize quality. Do not go back to the original polarity.
12. To save the settings press GO BACK and ENTER. You are now back at the satellite chart to select the next sat to be programmed in. Do NOT continue yet. Press VIEW then change to channel 7.
13. Press OPTION 6, 5. At the bottom-right of the screen you should notice the number in the box marked "Channels" increasing. This is called Channel Mapping . Once the unit has stopped counting (currently there are over 4000 channels) it has completed downloading the channel maps.
14. Resume programming satellites by pressing OPTION, 6, 4, 4. Select
the next satellite until you have programmed the satellites that you desire. If you are
going to rely on the 4DTV telling you the estimated locations of the satellites, we
recommend you manually program at least 3 satellites, one in the middle of the arc, the
furthest East (now S3)
