Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

This is a step-by-step guide how to perform a basic tuning for up to four antenna (LNB) satellites.

IMPORTANT: Before you begin with the tuning procedure, you will need the basic details of your satellite system (which satellite is received or how the signal is distributed from satellite antenna to TV, for example). This information can be retrieved by contacting your broadcast and satellite antenna provider.

  1. Switch on the TV, and make sure the satellite antenna (aerial) cable is properly connected to the TV. Select digital set-up at the setting.

  5. In this step you will be asked to choose between two satellite channel lists: Preferred Satellite or General Satellite. If you are using paid satellite, select Preferred Satellite and choose the specific satellite.

    - Preferred Satellite contains a channel list from the selected broadcast provider, together with default parameters to help with the channel tuning.
    - General Satellite will show all channels of the selected satellite antenna. The receiving and tuning parameters are using the default settings, and may need to be amended according to the type of installation.

    NOTE: Some parameters can be changed in the tuning for Preferred Satellite, and all parameters can be changed in the tuning for General Satellite. Consult your broadcast provider and your satellite antenna system provider for specific information of which settings you need to set.
