Setting up sundirect for measat 3. Do it Yourself

Do it yourself satellite change of sundirect
After waiting for a long time and repeated unsuccessful  contact with customer care and dealer, finally I decided to change the Dish direction and satellite settings for sun direct myself. here is the step by step procedure to change and setup sun direct for new satellite measat 3


Initial Preperation
For sun direct setup, first Visit the site http://www.lyngsat.com/mea3.html for finding out the required azimuth and elevation for your dish in your location. screen shot of the site is given here, check for the marked area. Azimuth is the direction clock wise from North (90 deg is East, 180 deg is South, 270 deg is West, 0 or 360 deg is North) and elevation is movement in vertical plane (0 deg LNB is parallel to ground and 90 deg is LNB pointing upward). For major cities azimuth and elevation could be obtained from http://measat.com/support_customer_azimuth.html
What is Azimuth and Elevation
Digital Television At Home: Satellite, Cable And Over-The-Air: Using, Controlling And Understanding Digital Tv Technologies
Find azimuth and elevation for your place, it will calculate your location as per your IP address


It would be better to check azimuth and elevation for Insat 4b at 
http://www.lyngsat.com/in4b.html, from where sun direct moved to Measat 3. Now you can see the difference in azimuth and elevation for both satellite. Normally difference in azimuth is 3.3 degree Clock wise and 2 degree up for elevation

Before adjusting the satellite, first switch on the TV and set top box, press menu and go to insatallation. (This metod is almost same for all set top boxes, here I am using Coship)

Menu setup page

Advanced setup page

1. Select advanced installation using left and down key of remote.

2. Select first satellite and rename it by pressing the blue button on remote (optional)

3. Press yellow button on remote for TP edit

4. Delete all transponders in the list using blue button (optional)

5.Enter frequency as 12316, symbol rate 30000 and polarity horizontal. If now you are getting quality above 20 you will be able to receive channels without dish adjustment. if quality is zero or less than 20%, Keep the TV and set top box on and ask some one to watch the screen for ‘quality bar’.
( I recommend you to put a mark awith paint or marker on the dish as shown below for reverting back, if you are not succeeding in aligning to measat 3)

6. Change the direction of the Dish as per the parameters described in First section. As a thumb of rule just loosen the Nuts under the dish a little and move the Dish direction 3 degrees clock wise (just 1- 2 Cms away from North). Lift the dish (tip of LNB) up by 2 degree again around 2 cm movement. Mean while your attender should be monitoring the quality bar and if there is any movement adjust the dish for best quality. You should get quality more than 70 % and you may get upto 87% ( Even though you may receive channels for quality as less as 20 %, try for above 50%.Better the quality better the video and audio)


Transponder (TP) editing page

7. Tighten the nuts where the quality is maximum.



8. get down from the roof, (you had done a wonderful job). take the remote press green button to add the TP. The data we entered has been updated and you get a new entry for editing. Keep on entering all the following data’s one by one. That is enter the frequency, symbol rate and polarization one by one, pressing green button after entering each set.
9. make sure after entering polarization you should get some signal strength in quality bar. If you are not getting any quality percentage, try changing polarity or symbol rate (standard symbol rates for measat sun direct are 30000, 27500, 19500 and 20000)
Transponder data for feeding
1. Enter this data first, if you have not followed the step above frequency 12316, symbol rate 30000, polarity Horizontal. press green button to add next transponder.
2. Now enter the following data one by one. keep pressing green button after entering every data set for saving it.
·         Frequency – Symbol rate – Polarity
·         12436 – 30000 – Horizontal
·         12597 – 19500 – Horizontal
·         12615 – 10000 – Horizontal
·         12643 – 30000 – Horizontal
·         12434 – 30000 – Horizontal
·         12523 – 27500 – Vertical
·         12563 – 27500 – Vertical
·         12603 – 27500 – Vertical
·         12643 – 27500 – Vertical
·         12723 – 27500 – Horizontal
·         12683 – 27500 – Horizontal
For all vertical transponders feed it again in horizontal with symbol rate 30000
If any of the transponder shown above is not showing any quality strength, try changing symbol rate to 20000 or 30000
Final Setup
Now after entering all data press exit once to get out of data feeding page.
select all transponders one by one and press ok on remote (centre button), a tick mark will appear next to transponder. Then press red button on remote to search.
You will get a list of channels. press exit togo back. Set top box will restart if not try upgrading software menu, or switch off and switch on set top box. Set top box will automatically update the software, which will take around 5 – 10 minutes.
Now click menu, select installation and press ok
you will see signal and quality bars, press red button for starting scan. save and exit


Congratulation now you are done.
In case any thing gone wrong or you are not successful and lost whatever you were getting, Don’t panic. Simply select factory restore. Then go to installation and scan

    hi dear…. thanks for your info…. I tried your procedure but my STB is homecast SN9000IR… which doesn't support those features to update or change your TP settings..

    so here are the steps to go ahead with home cast SN9000IR STB

    1.Do the factory reset
    2.Again go to factory reset and don't press ok. instead of OK press 7799
    3.New window will come
    4.In that screen move to last line LOAD CHANNEL then press ok it will show please wait
    5.Then go to manual scan
    6.Now u can able to edit home TP with 12316 Horizontal and freq rate 30000 code 5/6
    7.Start scan
    8.U will get measat 3 channels

    I have tried this and working fine now….

    Sirs: When I did a factory reset on my Coship STB supplied by SunDirect people, all the Satellite Names had disappeared. Only one name which I had fed in is appearing. No facility to input new satellite name also is not there. How to get all those satellite names? Earlier the osd was showing Insat4 etc. That name is replaced by MeaSat as input by me. Please help.

    @syed, Have you entered all the transponder details. (it is normally not required, if after aligning, the set top box is automatically updated)apart from 12316 – 30000 – Horizontal, feed all the frequencies given above, If it is not showing in your settop box menu. If any of the transponder shown above is not showing any quality strength, try changing symbol rate to 20000 or 30000. Double check polarity.

    @SAS3, If you reset set top box before setting it up for measat3, all the settings will be restored for Insat. If you already aligned dish and settop box is updated automatically, You will not get insat details. it will be resetted for measat. remove and reinsert card then switch on and try resetting

    sundirect is not yet fully migrated to measat3. Once the migration issue settles you eill get all the channels, Check your transponder list and confirm all frequencies are added

    Hi,
    Mine is a samsung STB, i tried changing the settings of home transponder . Default Network ID is 00018, I tried changing the values of freq to 12316 ,sym rate to 30000 and polarization to horizontal. With these settings , signal strength was 65% .I could see one channel (Gemini movies) that was stopped after satellite change. How ever many other channels were not found. I could not understand how to deal with step 2 on my STB, how can I add data of remaining transponders, looks like there is only one transponder setting on Samsung STB. Any Ideas about this? BTW am not able to down load samsung manual from the provided link, looks there is some issue with the website.
    Thanks in advance,

    I realigned successfully.At first after re-alignment upgrading software was failing.Then we guessed it was due to signal quality(40-45%).Now again realigned slightly to get quality of 75-80%.Now Upgrade was finished perfectly.We are getting almost all channels.

    First of all thanks to you all for encouraging comments. @ Samsung user, you need not worry about network ID. after entering the Fr, Symbol rate etc. you have to physically Adjust the Dish (follow the steps described in the main post).

    @Saif "e50-32 no service available" means your STB is blocked. Solution is to upgrade the software (firmware). If you could edit the TP and Frequency in advanced settings, Edit it and enter the main frequency (12316) and its associated parameters, align the dish and restart the STB. Software will automatically updated.
    If its not possible get it manually updated from sundirect dealer.

    @syed, have you subscribed for HD channels. Any way if you are not using a full HD TV, the HD channels will not make any difference.

    @ RPS, The software update is failing because your signal quality is less. adjust the dish for better signal quality, then update software (By restarting).

    Sure you can set the box for STB OFS1700CIR.

    After aligning to Measat3 don't reset to factory settings, before editing TP.
    If you already done it, align back to Insat 4b, do factory reset and restart settopbox.
    Then follow all the steps mentioned in the post

    Dear Suraj,
    I have Samsung STB. Before 3 months, I adjusted my STB to the new parameters ;12316 , 30000 etc. Till recently, we were able to view most of the channels but since,last 2-weeks channels were going out one by one. After, going through the posts in this forum, I tried to re-adjust my STB yesterday. Unfortunately,now nothing is coming on my TV except the massage E50-32 , No service is available.Please note that when I click on CA status, it gives the message: please insert smartcard, even though the smartcard is there. I removed the smartcard, cleaned, re-inserted and restarted the STB but the same message is appearing. I am confused now. Please Help. Jayanta/ Bahrain

    For samsung STB, 1st align the dish using any other STB (borrow from a friend). once you are getting channels in that STB, fix the dish in that position and replace STB with samsung STB. now try factory default resetting

    Thanks Suraj for your valued advice. I have Samsung STB. I have reset to the new parameters such as 12316, 30000 etc and adjusted the dish direction. Now all the free channels are coming on my tv but the channels like NDTV, ZEE CINEMA, ZEE BANGLA, SET MEX are not coming. When I checked the signal status,the set top box shows the following information:

    For ZEE BANGLA

    Signal Strength : 62%
    Signal Quality = 100%
    Locked = yes
    Frequency = 11610 mhz
    Symbol rate = 30000 ksym/s
    LNB Overload = No
    I dont understand still why ZEE BANGLA is not showing on my tv.

    Kindly help.

    Dear Suraj,
    From today no channels are coming on tv here in Bahrain. But I can still see the following details for most of the channels (free or pay channel )when I check the signal status:

    Strength = 60%, Quality = 100%,Locked = Yes, Frequency = 11030 Mhz (this reading varies from channel to channel), Symbol Rate = 27500 ksym/s, LNB Overload = No.

    I checked with 12436-30000, but it is still not working. Also, I tried with the other combinations as stated above, but no result.

    In addition, from today the STB is showing " E-04 -4 Please insert smartcard" even though I have not touched/removed the smartcard before.

    Please help.

    Suraj,
    Thanks for your prompt response. But sorry, from yesterday afternoon, signal is zero. I suspect whether we will be able to get the signal from Measat here in Bahrain even though we were getting signal before from Insat with a 6' dish.
    In my Samsung STB, there is no option like Factory Upgrade. The software option is there but it is inactive.

    Is anyone from GCC getting the signal? Please let us know.

    Dear Suraj,

    I am from Ras Tanura, Saudi arabia and i was getting a very good signal and all the channels very coming till they strted moving to the new satellite. I was using Samsung DSB-B580R & 2.1 mt( white color dish). From Tuesday 12/21/2010 no channels are coming and i tried to input these frequencies & then signal strength is coming to 0. Is it possible to get the signal from Measat with the same dish by adjusting or should i go for a big 2.4 mt(8ft) dish?
    If i can get the signal with the same dish, on what direction should i adject from the current position. I got these values from the site u mantioned. Elevation 35 and Azimuth 116.75.

    Thanks for your help..

    Just ten minutes before I was trying to adjust the dish. I managed to get signal strength = 56% and quality 5% (sometimes up to 12%)but the signals are not stable. Do you think we will still be able to get required signal here in Bahrain ? My dish is approx 160cm.

    Hi Srinivas,

    you are right… the procedure which is written by me is for the STB, which doesn't accept any change in manual scan & Dish settings under Installation sub menu….

    (Earlier my STB was not accepting the same….. Hence I followed the said procedure and it worked…)

    But after upgrading my software.. it is accepting to change my frequency & rest all details in manual scan under installation sub menu…
    No need to go for factory reset and all….
    basically these settings permission is given by the software. if your software may be upgraded already…

    Please try… your STB, may be accepting to take the frequency & rest all data in manual scan option itself…

    if not please revert back….

    Yesterday I did default factory setting on my Samsung STB (Frequency 11030, Symbol Rate 27500). It showed signal strength 60%, quality 90%. When I clicked the channel installation, it showed 190 TV channels and some radio channels. I saved that but except the info channel (001), no other channels were coming.

    But I have a problem. The STB keeps on searching for updates – new firmware. At times it says no new firmware and in a few seconds again goes for update search!!.
    or at times it search starts the download of new firmware but gets stuck in between. I tried waiting for hours!.
    The signal strength is around 60% and quality 100%.
    Is there any option for cancelling the update?.
    Is there any option to update through computer?.

    Firmware update fail, when the dish is not properly aligned. Align the dish (fine tune it). Then restart. You can update the software by giving the STB to customer care. No other options are currently available.

    Big TV is also fed from measat3 but frequency is different, they use base frequency 12523, Any way if you are getting no signal, either your card is blocked, which could be unblocked by sun direct customer care only, or wait for 2 days, It could be just the transitional problem

    Nanda, Firmware update has to be finished successfully. Its failing because dish is not properly aligned, first remove and reinsert smart card. try restarting and wait for 5-20 min for update to finish. if it takes longer time adjust dish for better signal quality. @thomas you have to take the settop box to either a local agent or customer care.

    Rajani, First of all the photos in your blog are really nice. "Nothing to Update" means the signal quality is less. Name of the satellite doesn't make any difference, key in the values and adjust dish for a quality above 60%. After that search for channel, save and restart. STB firmware will be automatically updated and new satellite list will be available

    If you could get a quality strength of above 25 (not signal strength – Signal strength indicates you are in right path)you should get most of the channels. Ask your friends what is the average signal quality they are getting. Once you get above 30% fix the dish in the position and try aligning by tapping (gentle strokes)

    Hello Suraj,
    I am Narendra I went through the comments in this post but it did not help me. Looking at the comments it looks like you have lot of knowledge in setting sundirect DTH and I hope you can help me.
    I am in Bahrain, as you know the foot print for Measat3 in GCC is low so we have to go for 8feet dish, for Insat 4B 6feet was enough. I am getting a signal strength of 100% & signal quality of 55-57%.
    Recently I brought this new sundirect HD STB Samsung DSB-5090R. I am getting all the SD channels in excellent quality but when I switch to HD channels then the message comes as “E48-32, No signal (check cable)” without any picture. Also some SD channels like star utsav also give the same message. The maximum signal quality we get is 57% the same dish with previous SD STB was showing 86% signal quality. I did not need to change the settings with the new Samsung STB as it came with the settings you have explained and also recent software version is installed.
    Now do the HD channels need more signal quality? I heard that the HD channels are still in Insat 4B is there any TP setting required? Any solution for this please advise. Thank you

    hi Suraj, I am using Sun Direct Receiver (samsung). I have change the TP Settings and I am getting Good Strength 83% and Quality. And when I go to Channel Installation and Search it loads 170 Channels and some Radio channels and ask me to Save it. After I click Save it automatically takes to Downloaded steams and Esteemed time for the same is 128 Seconds and restarts and shows the Downloads Status with Progress Bar ( goes to some 70% and Stuck) I did by removing the card etc some option you specified in the Post. Do you think its Still the alignment with the dish.
    Thanks,
    Anosh

    Dear Mr.Suraj,
    I have one SunDTH SN9000IR. I have set it with Factory Default. But It cannot be programmed again. I want it to be used for Door darshan DTH or any other FTA services instead of SUNDTH useless services. Can I program it again? I have another Chinese made general purpose STB which can be programmed as you desire. Please give me next step to what to do with SUNDTH STB SN9000IR? This STB has a USB port at rear. -Mr. Varghese, New Delhi='rossvile@yahoo.com'

    Hi Mr. Suraj,

    I read the contents at your suggested http. According to them (published in 2008)SUNDTH STB SN9000IR cannot be used for other FTA. Now you please suggest how can I retrive SUN DTH SN9000IR to its original position to get SUNDTH programs as I have reset it to factory default.

    no problem. Follow the step by step instructions. make sure signal quality is above 60 (not signal strength). after editing TP and saving the details, your stb software will automatically be updated.

    No channels were coming in Sun Direct. If I go to Guide (in the remote), select a channel and enter it will work. Later, I have done Auto scan and saved. Then all the channels started working. But when I switch off TV switch and Sun Dish switch and then switch on, again the same problem. Again I have to Auto scan and save. Is there any solution please ?

    when you restart the software is supposed to be automatically updated, check the signal quality strength. Once the software is updated your problem will be sorted out

    Hi Suraj,

    I have the below Scenrio. Request your help in where i am doing wrong.

    I have a Tatasky Mini Dish i want to use with Sun direct stb. It was not recharged for 6 Months and yesterday i recharged and customer care confirmed the same account is active. I am doing the below steps.

    1. Connect Sun direct STB.
    2. Apart from Predefined list of Satellites, i see now Newsat01, newsat02 etc on the List.
    3. Selecting Newsat01 Satellite and Adding TP.
    4. Now the TP Values are 00000. Singal Streght 87% Siganl Quality 80%
    5. I am Adding new TP. 12316 H 30000. Now the Signal Stregh 87% Singal Quality 0%
    6. Now Realigning the Dish to Measat 91.5.
    7. Singal Stregh is 70% and Signal Quality: 0%
    8. Adjusting dish .. Singal Stregh Vaires from 65 % 70% but no Singal Quality.

    I have tried this several times, but still i dont get any Siganl Qulity with Sun direct apart from the Signal Strenght. I am not sure where i am doing wrong.. but totally dissatisfied.

    Please help.

    I think it is not aligned properly, signal quality is the important aspect, and you get it in a very narrow angle, while signal strength remains good for wide angle. so re align for better sinal quality

    Dear Mr. Suraj.

    We are in UAE and using Sundirect Samsung DSB-B580R receiver for long.But due to change in Satellite we are not getting any channel through the above receiver.We are usinng centralised dish for all the flats in our building.
    As per the above quotes, I changed the Home transponder setting as follows.
    Network ID=18
    Frequency-12316
    Symbol Rate=30000
    LO Low=9750
    Lo High=10600
    LNB Power =On
    Polarisation=Horizontal
    Position=A

    While installing channel, I can see the following
    Signal strenght=45-47%
    Progress=10%
    After 10% the menu is getting skipped to advanced action without completing full scaning.
    So I am unable to complete the channel intallation. What could be the reason?

    Can u please advise me what to do next.

    Please help us.

    Thanks & Regards.

    Shinu
