Default BlindScan/Feed guide for SpiderBox HD

BlindScan on SpiderBox HD...
A small guide to scanning for & viewing feeds on the SpiderBox HD...

BlindScanning on SpiderBox HD:
BlindScanning is easily done via: Menu-Satellite Search, enter pin at the prompt & scroll to 'Search Option', then using left/right buttons on remote highlight 'Blind Scan' scroll to 'Start Search' which will bring up a menu to select your parameters (i.e: Freq start/end-drive Step-Pol)...

The parameters for a blindscan are selectable to improve efficiency & save time, which makes these enhanced options a must have for the feedhunt enthusiast & can help improve the knowledge of the keen feedhunting learners for increased knowledge of regular sat feeds & where to find them...
Aswell as being able to scan all the Ku-band frequencies of a whole sat (10.700-12.750), frequency start & end parameters can also be selected to scan certain parts of a sat, which are not pre-determined or defaulted...Any start/end parameter can be manually entered to scan any part of the frequency band between the minimum & maximum to target or scan specific areas of the band...

Drive Step is also variable which allows scanning to be done in 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10MHz steps, which again allows for a choice of scanning for feedhunting...
When 10MHz scanning is selected the tuner will scan the part of the band selected in 10MHz steps & provides the quickest but a less thorough scan...Scanning in 2MHz steps obviously takes the longest of the scanning times to perform, but is the most efficient of the scans as it is searching in smaller steps/freq's so is likely to & has a greater chance of picking up everything that may be broadcasting at that specific time...
Personally i find 4MHz steps is a reasonable & a very thorough scan & scanning a portion of a sat around .400 apart is no more than 5 or so mins to complete from start to finish...

Polarization options are selectable with Vertical-13V, Horizontal-18V & ALL the available options, which allows you to select to scan vertical freq's only, Horizontal freq's only or both...

The SpiderBox can find all feeds from all sats that transmit Ku-Band feeds & can view any of these feeds with the only exceptions being 4:2:2 transmissons (An AZBox is needed to view 4:2:2 transmissions) & encrypted feeds, which only a very chosen few have access to the priveleged codes to view this enc content...

Viewing feeds on SpiderBox HD:
If you merely want to view feeds posted by others, the SpiderBox is very easy to use & all that is needed to view a sat feed is to manually add a new TP using the details provided with the reported feed...

To add a new TP:
Menu-Satellite Search, enter pin at the prompt then press the 'red' button on remote to add a new TP, then scroll to 'Frequency' & enter the desired frequency using the number buttons on remote, then scroll to 'Symbol Rate' & enter the desired symbol rate, then scroll to 'Polarization' & select the desired Pol using the left/right buttons on remote, then finally scroll to 'Modulation' to select 1of the 3options available (DVB-S QPSK, DVB-S2 8PSK or DVB-S2 QPSK)...
Note: If broadcasting standard is not known, select each of the 3standards above until a signal is obtained on the signal/quality level meters shown at the bottom of the screen is displayed...
Once all details are correct & a signal is showing (Signal meter level will appear in green - Quality meter level in blue), scroll to 'Start Search' & press 'OK' button on remote for the new TP to be scanned...
Once scan is complete it will reveal anything found & you can then exit the menu's to return to the last viewed channel...(Anything new found will appear at the end of your channel list for you to select & view)

Hopefully this will help members enjoy some of the feeds that are available daily
