just tinkering with a db500s, got it all set up easy enough and i even scanned in 28east, i now want to add a few more sats and thats where the trouble starts, how do i add them,where do i put them and then when added how do i access them, i am using a nabilosat darkstar 11 image which is enigma 1 based. i know i have a sat xml file in box and a list for 13 east but cant get at anything.

a few tips would be most helpful, i like the box but the features appear to be endless,

A rather obvious question - what dish do you have?

You add them in the same way you added 28E... though the exact setup will vary depending if you have a motorised setup or multiple LNBs through a diseqc switch.

You'll find this useful:

You'll also navigate them in the same way as what you have now... press the ok button to show the channel list then use the colour buttons to toggle between the different lists, all channels, providers, sats and bouquets.

Best bet would be down load an E1 channel list.

Easy to load also using DBE, ( dreambox edit )

I haven't dabbled with downloading other peoples bouquets as yet, I know they include the channel names and frequencies etc but do you still need to setup the sats temselves before hand?

And he asks "when added how do i access them", hence my question about the dish.;)

thanks all, i am going to have another go today on and off, its raining! i have a 1.1m motorised and get 42east to 30west, i use a spiderbox to move dish, its has a quad lnb, the black ultra. so one feed to db500s ie not to motor, i am learning the remote function as well, i now know i have set bo up for one sat but dont know how i set it so that i move from say 28 to 13 on spider how do i get 13e up on db500 and so on? i used dcc to set it all up over 2 years ago!! i have db edit as well, i am learning each day, it has so many features i am keen again!! i am trying to figure the colour buttons and it is connected with a lan cable.

and just now i must have pressed a few wrong buttons as it has gone into a loop!!

well have to reflash

.. i have a 1.1m motorised and get 43east to 32west,...

there are no sats at those positions ... have you typed them wrong or have you got something set wrong in the Spiderbox.. the nearest to those are 45e or 42e on the east side & 30w or 34.5w on the west side.
