Here's what you'll need:
Null modem cable (probably got one with your receiver)
Loader v1.06 or v1.05 (you can use either) Latest bin (currently v1.42)
(download these from any fta site.)
Here's what you do:
1. Download loader and bin to your computer. Unzip the bin and copy it to somewhere you can find it easily when browsing from your loader.
2. With the receiver turned off on the rear switch, connect it to your computer via the null cable.
3. Put your machine into either (a) STANDBY or (b) BOOT mode (you can load it either way).
(a) To get it to STANDBY mode, turn the receiver's rear switch ON, and when you see 00:00 on the display, turn OFF using the FRONT button; you will then see --:-- (STANDBY).
(b) To get to BOOT mode, hold the front power button, and turn the rear switch ON; you will see "boot" displayed.
4. Open the loader and browse for the bin where you saved it unzipped. Select it and click start.
5. Wait until you see "end", then you can power off the receiver and disconnect from computer.
You have successfully upgraded your software!
Now to scan for channels!
Hook your receiver up to your TV and connect the coaxial cable from your dish(es) to the LNB IN connector. When you first turn it on, it will take you through an few automated setup procedures, like language choice, and so on.
Now if you were to go into the menu>installation>antenna setup, and try to chose your sats, you may notice they are all screwed up, and trying to chose them will cause the receiver to reboot. You must first of all do a factory default. Go to menu>installation>factory default. You will now be able to chose your satellites and setup values. switches, etc.
You can setup the values for each sat separately if you wish, and scan each. However, the easiest way, especially for a first time user, is to simply go to menu>installation>easy tuning. You can use the down button to navigate between fields, and the right/left to select the desired value/sat/switch. You can use easy tuning to scan your channels if you have only one LNB, or if you have up to 4. A typical screen for 4 sats might look like this after you've chosen the desired values:
Status Satellite Diseqc LNB freq
ON----- Echo 7----- 1----- 11250
ON----- Echo 8,10-- 2----- 11250
ON----- Nimiq 1,3-- 3----- 11250
ON----- Nimiq 2---- 4----- 11250
Any ports you don't use, just set the status to OFF.
Now press OK and choose either FAST TUNING or AUTO TUNING to scan your sat(s). Fast tuning uses preconfigured tp/channel data, while auto tuning actively also looks for new data; it is recommended you use AUTO TUNING.
Note: at this time it appears that scanning multiple satellites renders a number of EPG channels listings as "prog xxxx" (where xxxx is the number of the channel) rather than the proper channel name or abbreviation. It is best then to simply autoscan (red button) each sat separately. You can do this from the easy tuning menu or the installation menu. After one scans in, just change the sat name to the next one you want to scan, make sure other settings are correct, and scan.
After your receiver finishes scanning, exit menus and go to any channel. Now you will perform the final step: enabling the patch (the top secret function that allows you to watch scrambled channels!).
You will see "H"
The patch is now enabled!
Now just sit on a scramble channel and wait for the autoroll function to grab the active key. If you have both DN and Bev sats, you will need to go to a channel for each to await autoroll (remember Bev takes a little longer, six minutes or more). You will see it grabbing the keys, wait for it to grab both sets; reboot unit if necessary if it remains scrambled after grabbing the keys, or if audio is not present.
Now open a beer and watch TV!
