  • [INSTALL] How to Add a New Satellite to an FTA Receiver

    "Free-to-air" (FTA) satellite television provides a wide array of TV and radio channels,
    either as a standalone system or to supplement paid satellite TV,
    cable or terrestrial digital television.

    Free-to-air satellite systems can be set up to receive broadcasts from a single satellite or multiple satellites,
    via a motorized dish or additional low noise blocks (LNBs) on a fixed satellite dish.

    To add another satellite to a free-to-air system
    you must have a multiple system with access
    to more than one satellite.

    1 - Switch on your TV set and satellite receiver and select a satellite TV channel.

    2 -Press the "menu" button on your satellite receiver remote control.

    3 - Locate the "installation," "set-up" or "system set-up" option on the menu and select it using the up/down arrows on your remote control.

    4 - Scroll to the setting marked "tuning," "channel scan," "add new channels," or a similar description, and select it.

    5 - Find and select the "add satellite," or "new satellite" option.

    6 - Scroll through the list of available satellites and select the desired satellite. The satellite will be ****d with information that may include its position, for example, "13 degrees East."

    7 - Wait for your receiver to scan the satellite. This might take a few minutes.

    8 -Press "save" to store the new satellite and channels.
