I am a total newb at this, so I am hoping it's something I have overlooked.
I recently got a sat finder, and am sitting outside with my TV, box and dish, all in the hope that if I can pick up optus C1, I'll install it on the roof.
using a sat finder along with
and a compass I have hit the position right on the head ( I think.)
I have a DM500s, the LNB is at 12367 / 27800 V
can't set LOF or H/V settings.
whenever I go to satellite configuration and select "user defined mode", so I can set the LOF H + V with the 1 satellite, I press the green 'save' button and when I go back into it, it's set at 1 satellite, which is a pain.
Like I said, I believe I found the correct signal for optus C1. the sat finder can see it, but my dreambox can't get a lock on it.
It's locked on to 1 or 2 off to the sides though.
any ideas to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
*also, once all that is going, do I need a gold card to get aurora, will it pick it up on it's own, or would I need to DL the keys into the the DM itself then use a softcam?
