How to link up 3 DSTV decoders

Re: How to link up 3 DSTV decoders

Check what the network settings for each of the other decoders are and then make sure you select UBs and frequencies that do not clash with those used by the other two decoders.


Bets to use the quick setup wizard, and set the Primary decoder to use decoder 1 settings, the second Explora to use decoder 2 settings, and the new decoder to use decoder 3 settings.

Then we can get into possible HB issues.

How to link up 3 DSTV decoders

I have the first 2* Explora decoders, which has been working perfect for the past 2 years or so, and then I recently bought a new HD decoder, which is now connected on the C label of the SLNB, but I somehow don’t get signal, in actual fact I do, but it constantly loses it, and that also affect the other decoders signal. What is the correct way to do this?
