I've set up the openbox receiver. I have found plenty of channels, but they have the wrong transponder info on them. What I mean is, that when I'm watching a channel, and i push info button. It shows to be on a different transponder than what I'm sure it is on. Some C band channels show up to be on a Ku transponder. ?? Any ideas? :confused:

I hate to let my stupid hang out, but I'm not familiar with the term BIOS,
I do know how to change the LNB settings, is that what the BIOS is?
Do you have any idea what to set them or is just trial and error? Also, yesterday, when I went back to 99W, the unit did not recognize the previous channels setup for that sat. I had edited the names of the channels for ease of finding them. But when I went back to 99W from 87W, I had nothing. Knowing that the dish was was in the correct position, i did a blind scan. I found all of the channels, but they were not on the same channels as before. ?????? The previously set channels are black.
I wish my old Sonicview would do the HD and mpeg4, it is much easier to deal with.
Thanks for everyone's help. :eek:

another issue with the openbox s9

Sometimes when i move the dish back to a previously watched sat, the channels are black. The transponders dont show any signal. When i do a blind scan, the channels show up, however not on the same channels as before. ?

:mad:

I installed new Ku/C band LNB on 10' dish. Manually set dish at 99 w with bird dog meter. Openbox s9 wouldn't pick up any channels. Bird dog meter confirmed that I had quality as well as sig. For the heck of it I did a blind scan of different sat name while dish still positioned at 99w. I picked up channels for 99w. Wrong sat name , wrong TP #'s , Verticle instead of horizontal. So where do I start ? I do have a Ku band dish connected also through a disq 4x1 switch , small dish pointed at 101 w.
If someone can tell me where to start? I'll enter or change whatever or take a hammer to it!

Many people really like them. one of my problems, is my lack of knowledge. I've been fta for a few years, but Im still a newby. Sometimes I read others' posts, and all I can say is "huh"?.
But I don't give up easily .
