No need for channel list anymore


Might want to try this on other receivers too..No harm...No pain,No gain


Works on all Pansat Series. Might take a few try's to get it to work.

1. Delete ALL channels on ird.

2. Go into SAT Edit and rename your Dish 110 to ECHO 110 and rename Dish 119 to ECHO 119. (the space between ECHO and 110 is important!)

3. Do a BLIND scan on each sat, ECHO 110 & ECHO 119. (Takes At least 10 min per sat) NOTE: My 2700 got "hung up" during a blind scan, I stopped, deleted the partially loaded channel list, for that SAT only, re scanned to 100%, all ok.

4. When complete, push SAT button on remote, you will now have a choice you have not previously had "ECHOSTAR PACKAGE"

5. Select ECHOSTAR PACKAGE and select any channel. This will convert EPG Button to ECHOSTAR PACKAGE and your EPG will match match DISH Network channels. ( provided you are pointed at 110 and 119)

After doing this, you will see there is no need to load a channel list and EPG works faster on most channels.

That was already posted numerous times on this board.

1. If you have a fresh blind scan you don't have to delete anything.

2. Sats are named echo 6/8, echo 7 and echo 9 (in pansat's factory setting) and that's just fine, no need to rename them to echo 110 and so forth.

EPG DOES NOT work faster, 1st because of pansat's slow processor and 2nd because the channels are not in the TP order (epg only works fast when channels are arranged in tp order, try it.)

I don't see the need of renaming the sats as EchoS.Package option works the same way on my Pansat.

BTW... I loaded the latest bin on a pansat 2700E.. the unit looks "cheap" compared to the original 2700A but works just the same.
Also... to calculate the position of your dish500 with 2 dual LNBs here is a good caculator...

All you need to do is press the SAT button on remote and select echo star package it's that easy.

OK, I think that's enough for estar package explanations, there are 4 posts already summarizing the same thing.
