Dreambox DM500S - just got today, probs with motor - 12-May-2009, 22:58

Hi there, have a Technomate 1500CI and 80cm motorised system all up and running fine. Bought a 2nd hand DM500 S online and have come to set it up.

Obviously looks a lot, lot different and many things for me to learn and pick up.

I firstly set up the Rotor settings and have managed to scan 0.8w OK and it has found 330 channels. Most of these are obviously scrambled but I can view BBC World News fine here.

Problem I am having is finding the other sats. I can only get 16 channels on 13e and none on 19.2e. This is very odd as on my TM box I can get hundreds of channles fine on these.

I have the motorised settings set for GotoX on and have put in my Longtitude and Latitude and I can hear the dish moving when it says on screen that it is moving, it's just it's not finding any other satellites.

Another problem it has is that when it switches on, if I don't press Menu wuickly it will just freeze on the PLi green welcome screen.

I have tried a factory reset but still doing it.

Have managed to download Dreambox Control Center and connect to the box from my PC fine. If I look at the Telnet protocol it shows me this

welcome on your dreambox! - Kernel 2.6.9 (20:40:57).
In short, and to a total DM newbie, what do I need to do next.

Obvioulsy want to get into CS (paid for) but presume I need to be able to view the sats/TP's and channels before I can do anything else.

Was thinking about plugging the TM back in to get 13e and then telling the DM that it is a static dish pointing at 13e and see if that is any good? Have read that the DM500s isn't very good with motors.

Any help most welcome
