Installation Guide

* What does BLIND SEARCH (aka SMART or POWER SCAN) mean?  It means that the receiver will do an automatic scan of the incoming satellite signal in small steps for active symbol rates to determine if there are any live transponder signals transmitting Free to air TV or radio channels.  In this special search feature, the receiver will not only identify the frequency but also the symbol rate, polarity, FEC, and PIDS.  It will then store these transponders and any FTA channels it finds in its memory.  Any encrypted channels it finds will not be displayed, instead you will see "BAD or ENCRYPTED SIGNAL".  These are not FTA and will require subscription.

The BLIND SEARCH feature comes in handy if a channel has relocated to a new transponder or if you have a motorized C and/or KU band dish and enjoy surfing the satellites for available FTA channels.
