      How to update your Transponder Data Base

      How to delete a transponder on the Spiderbox 7000HD - 9000HD

      1st select the satellite you want to edit by selecting a satellite from the list,

      4/ Frequency
      5/ Now move the cursor through the list of Transponders & if the S=Green Signal Bar & Q=Blue Quality bars are showing the transponder is active so move to the next transponder,

      So move to the next transponder >>> using the cursor until you come to a transponder that is not active you will know it is not active when only the Red Signa bar lights up & nothing shows on the quality bar,
      Give it a few seconds before you delete the transponder by pressing the Yellow buttion =TP delete

      The sequence will continue in a natural progression >>> so go to the next transponder in the data base of the satellite & continue editing using the Cursor as before >>>
      If both S=Signal & Q= Quality bars are Red then dellete this transponder also via the Yellow button as the wrong data is stored,

      If you accidently remove an active transponder that you wanted to save then press Exit & choose your options {Are you sure to save?) if you select "No" then you can start again if you select "Yes" your data base will update removing the transponders that you have deleted,

        Limit Off (If the Motor stops before it reaches a satellite due to restrictions on limit previously set)
        Set East Limit (sets as far as you want the motor to travel to prevent damage to dish)
