I hope someone can help me with my issue. I have PANSAT 3500 SD. I have done everything right from putting the latest Bin file in Code Backup folder, entering the latest DishNetworks keys. And then scanning the Echo3 satellite for the channels, but i am not getting any indian channels. I am getting some PPV channels, but nothing sort of indian channels. Can someone please help? Thanks in advance.
Lyngsat is a site that provides a mapping of channels to transponders on specifig satellites. Just try to look on any of the three DN satellites for you channel: 61.5, 110, 119. When you find your channel make sure your lnb is aimed at that sat.
Jason - Verify this but I think Echo 9 (121w) has the indian channels. Not sure since I don't know the specific channels Jay is looking for. Didn't see any on Echo 3 which is probably why he didn't get any when he scanned. For Echo 9 you need a Linear LNB.
I'm going to set up 121 in the next couple of days and I'll let you guys know what's on that bird. I have no experience with that sat because I used to live in the Caribbean and that was out of reach for us.
You're probably correct, Prf, about the Indian channels being on 121, as that sat usually has internation stuff. I don't know the names of channels either. Do get back to us when you have your linear hooked up. I'd hook up one on my dish, but it's a real pain because I have a toroid.
Jay, my co-worker confirmed there are 4 indian channels on sat 121 (tp3). So you will have to do what Prf said: get yourself a linear lnb and tie wrap it to your 119 sat's lnb. Don't forget to program that extra satellite into your receiver.
