I'm progressing, even tho this is getting on my nerves. I have a good signal and only get 1 working channel GOAL TV...Spanish Soccer! All my other channels have a dollar sign in front of them and say scrambled. I have a Pansat 3500 SD and a DishPro 500
the $ just means its a scrambled channel. Almost all channels on Dih Network or BEV will have that. All you need to do is make sure your key's are updated with the latest. I just posted a thread here a hour or so ago with the working keys.
if you need help just ask I have a working pansat 3500
Jay, thnx for the quick reply. I was told I have to get into the parental controls to set the keys, from there i can enter oooo and get a new screen, cas screen or something, that doesnt happen for us. Any more help? Thnx.
Heres how to updat the key's on your pansat 3500SD
Menu button select Parental Controls 2nd PIN/enter 0000 Nagravision Select dishnetwork (top right, use r/l arrows) scroll down select key 0 scroll down enter the new keys (the letter keys are shown on the screen by function key). Check them carefully. scroll up select key 1 enter the new keys (same letter keys as above - bottom of screen). Check them carefully. Hit and hold OK until it flashes (red, bottom right) on the screen. exit out and watch TV
only thing I want to add is be sure and Hit and hold OK until it flashes (red, bottom right) on the screen several times while putting in keys. Also after you put keys in both lines read them to be sure you got it right just one # off and it wont work.
Thank you for all your help. I think now i really fowled it up. I get nothing but snow on the tv and can't reset the pansat. The remote works ...it turns on my vcr, but it doesn't clear the tv. Its stuck on b70 and the tv screen has snow.
