Frequently Asked Questions

How do I install satellite channels? - General

Ensure that:
• The satellite cable is firmly connected to the television and the wall socket.


When installing multiple satellites, start with step 1
When installing only one satellite, start with step 2

1. Choose the number of satellites

By default, the TV is set to one satellite. To install multiple satellites, follow these steps:
• Change the connection type. Press the “Home” button on the remote control of the TV and select:
[Setup] > [Search for satellite] > [Install channels] > [Settings] > [Connection type]
• Choose one of the following options:
• DiSEqC 1.0 (3-4 LNBs)
• DiSEqC Mini (2 LNBs)
Check which option to select on the manual or label of the DiSEqC Switch. When in doubt, try the setting DiSEqC 1.0 (3-4 LNBs). Please note that the TV only supports DiSEqC Mini and 1.0.

• Select [Done] > [Start]
The TV will start a complete channel scan. This can take up to an hour, depending on the number of satellites. When the search is complete, the TV will display a message and show an overview of the found channels. Press “OK” to finish the installation.


Use these steps if the provider specifically mentions that the satellite uses unicable

A unicable system (EN50494) can connect either one or two satellites using only one cable.
• Press the “Home” button on the remote control of the TV and select:
[Setup] > [Search for satellite] > [Install channels] > [Settings] > [Connection type]

• Choose and confirm the matching option:
[Unicable for 1 satellite]
[Unicable for 2 satellites]

The television will now display a list of user bands (UBs):
UB0, UB1, UB2, UB3, UB4, UB5, UB6, UB7

If the provider uses a user band range between UB1 and UB8, please subtract 1 to match the UB numbering on the TV.

• Choose a user band (UB) and press the “OK” button.
• Enter the user-band-frequency given by the cable service provider (xxxx.xxx MHz). It should be within the following range:
Minimum frequency: 0950.000
Maximum frequency: 2150.000
• Press “OK” to start the satellite search.

2. Search channels

To (re)install the channels, press the “Home” button on the remote control of the television and select:
[Setup] > [Search for satellite] > [Install channels]
• After finding the satellites, confirm the installation with “OK”.

Note: Some TVs will ask how to preorder the found channels. Choose one of the options and press “OK”.

Note for consumers in the United Kingdom:
• Televisions are almost always sold with only a DVB-T tuner.
• If the television has no DVB-S tuner, a set-top box is needed to view satellite channels, usually in combination with a Sky subscription.
