dm800 H-H motor problems - 08-February-2009, 12:27

I recently got a dm800 hd receiver. I have a small dish which has a H-H motor. I previously used the same dish and motor with a strong box, and i could just set it to diseqc 1.2 and move the dish.

The dm800 hd however is not moving the dish. I have tried usals, i have tried diseqc 1.2. Nothing seems to move the dish.

I am using latest Gemini image.

A box as expensive as the dm800 is not able to move the H-H motor. Has anyone here had the same issue, or am i missing a trick?

If anyone has the H-H motor working with dm800 can you please post your configuration or setting details.

I had a similar problem when I first got my DM800. To start with Usals is a bit ofa hit and miss with this box and id suggest untill its sorted u stick to disecq 1.2. Takes a bit longer to set up but never the less.

I previously had a TM1500Ci which was a simple select sattellite and move dish east or west.

The DB not quiet so simple.

You firstly need to go into your tuner setup and select the sat(s) you want to receive. under each sat u turn LNB power to on which in turn opens a menu for for motor control.

Set usals to no and disecq to 1.2.

save setting then come out of menu and goto positioner set up. press red for tune then select sat and transponder u want.

press ok which takes u to screen with colour options. move dish east west using green or yellow (I think!) untill u start to get signal strength.

When u get fine tuned save setting and then goto manual scan and scan the transponder u just tuned dish on.

U need to do same for all other sats which when uve done u can simple select station u want from service list and dish should move.

Hope this helps
