Extraview 3 decoder setup

Red Carpet

Re: Extraview 3 decoder setup

I don't have direct experiencexwith these decoders. But it sort of makes sense that before the new configuration is saved into memory and the decoder is rebooted, nothing will happen.

So is there a step that asks you to save the new configuration?

I was busy with the installation wizard and step 4 after selecting LNB type and inputting the index and frequencies, no signal detected so unable to scan and continue

On the surface all is correct. Didyou save the settings and reboot the 5S? It should at least be able to now get CH 100. After that it is now an issue to verify the XV settings with MC.

Confirm which indexes and frequencies you're using for the two Exploras.

 

Some 5 series decoders were faulty, you may have to take it in.

 

Geoff will be back later.

Re: Extraview 3 decoder setup

The HD 5 series decoder MUST be connected to a SLNB Unicable port to receive HB via the SLNB. HB signal is NOT available on the universal ports.

Extraview 3 decoder setup

hi, please as it with. I am connecting a 3rd decoder on xtraview. Current setup: I have 2 explora 2a and 1 HD 5 decoder with SNLB. All 3 decoders connected directly to SLNB, explora's on port 1 and 2 of SNLB and HD 5 connected to universal port. I have e signal on all 3 and the 2 Explora's are working fine. The HD 5 decoder has an error and says no communication to primary decoder. Is this connection issue or settings.
